“Blue Badge” tool available, unlocks all known protected features
committed to database on November 9, 2008 at 9:55 pm Eastern Standard Time
Last week, I revealed a weird protection scheme around some unfinished features in Windows 7 (build 6801). I provided a buggy tool to enable the new Taskbar, then teased everyone with other features such as gestures, panning, and Desktop Slideshow. It wasn’t intentional, I just needed some time to rework the unlocking tool.
Update (Nov. 14): As of revision 2, files are backed up with a .original extension.
Understanding the risks involved in patching core system files, you may download a copy of the tool for http://www.withinwindows.com/files/u...e_rev2_x86.zip
