Change Windows 7 folder colours

Hi just a quick question if I may please

I have been using Folder Maker V3 on my laptop for a while now and its worked ok, but now I need something like folder Marker on my desktop PC so I have just bought Folder Marker V4 and it will just not open on my Windows 7 64 bit edition

So can anyone recommend a program that will allow me to customize the shape and colour of my folders please?

I have tried a few program that came up with a google search but if seems not are as good as folder marker but it just will not run on my machine

PS it would be good if I could batch change more than one folder at a time

Since you like Folder Marker V4 (which version?), you might just want to pursue why it will not work. It should be supported.

You might tell us exactly what happens. It installs correctly, but clicking it's exe does nothing, etc.

Windows 7 Professional 64 Bit

Hi thanks for taking the time to reply to my question

Ok let me tell you I have used Folder Marker Pro on my Laptop running Windows 7 Professional 64 bit version and Folder Marker Pro, Version 3.1 for quite some time with no problems.

This version of Folder Marker Pro on my laptop had a license for one computer only and I decided that I wanted Folder Maker on my Home PC as well as the laptop.

So I bought the latest version of Folder Marker Pro to use on my desktop computer, this also runs Windows 7 Professional 64 Bit edition of windows.

The new version of Folder Marker Pro is Version 4.2 I installed the program ok, if I click on the start orb and then on all programs it is listed there and there is an icon on the desktop.

When I click the icon to run Folder Marker I get the little blue circle going round and round for a few seconds but then nothing happens, it will not run even to input the license key.

I have emailed technical support for the program twice but they do not reply
