Here is one I just created. Can't use it as I'm running x64 so I have no idea how it looks or if it's even any good.

Nice orb
If I go to C:\ProgramData\Start Orb Manager\Themes & convert the .png to .bmp I used gimp & resize to 54 x162 with gimp then use Win 7 Start Button Changer 1.0 by ~Kishan-Bagaria on deviantART by putting .bmp in the changer folder.
let me know if I can help you out. Jerry

Very nice app. Converting over some of my old orbs i have made. This is a nice way to keep track of them all and easy to add (i was using the restorator patch).

I do a few problems on Win 7 Pro x64

App crashes at random selecting new start orbs (does not look to remake the exeplorer.exe), It leaves exeplorer files (.old, .backup, .tmp) I think that was it and then the exeplorer.exe is gone.

Also, every time it does add the image and restarts exeplorer.exe (with out any errors). The BMP files are all state corrupted in restorator and no start orb showing in explorer after a restart.

I tested it on 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium. Didn't work out well. While applying the start orb, it stops working. I hope this gets fixed soon

Yep, sounds like same problem I'm having it has to do with it trying to apply & rename the exeporer.exe. At less I can use the app for now to tweak my Orbs and get them lined up just right (had a b$#$# of a time doing that in photoshop) lol

Then i just extract the .png convert it over with its alpha channel and then use Restorator to make a patch file. Its a work around until it gets fixed.

Just an update. The next build will have the x64 issue licked. dmex confirmed the test code I sent him worked on his x64 setup.

ALSO, closing explorer is still not 100%. Explorer was never ment to be closed and modded repeatedly. Explorer.exe is very tempermental. Trust me I have spent hours trying to get it 100% using various methods. At least it helped me trap more errors!

Expect the new build soon.
