Windows 7: Explorer error on 7068.

Explorer error on 7068.

This is exactly the same error I got with 7048.

Clean install 7068 from Daemon Tools.

From Win + E:

Explorer error on 7068.-explorer-1-2009-03-25_005207.jpg

From Explorer on Taskbar:

Explorer error on 7068.-explorer-2-2009-03-25_005243.jpg

From the .exe:

Explorer error on 7068.-explorer-4-2009-03-25_005543.jpg

Explorer error on 7068.-explorer-6-2009-03-25_010246.jpg

Works fine from the Start Orb :

Explorer error on 7068.-explorer-3-.jpg

Explorer error on 7068.-explorer-5-2009-03-25_010112.jpg

The only software installed is Avast, Vista Firewall Control,
Faststone Capture 53, Poweriso , FF 3.08 and Windows Live Mail.

Any ideas anyone?

Windows 7 Ult x64(x2), HomePrem x32(x4), Server 08 (+VM), 08 R2 (VM) , SuSe 11.2 (VM), XP 32 (VM)

for me win+E opens up "My Computer"
so wait this is a clean install from deamon tools?
the only thing i can think of is file corruption or a changed association for the exe file ...

I've used both those builds you're using and the apps you mentioned without problem except:

Vista Firewall Control, Faststone Capture 53, Poweriso.

Never installed one of those.

I would focus to one of those apps (Vista Firewall Control and Poweriso being the most suspicious), try uninstalling them and see if helps.

Daemon tools + every build of 7 = FUBAR. No error for me. However, I've also stopped using DT because of said FUBAR issues. This doesn't necessarily mean a correlation for the Win+e error. Like TripOG, I've been using PowerISO with no trouble. I checked the DT forums after 7068 was leaked and didn't find anyone giving the all-clear sign yet.

On the other hand, I've had some other explorer crashes after installing 7068 on my laptop (clean install, no upgrade). Can't pin down the reason yet, but it's crashed 3 times today - each time is right after loading a program. Explorer restarts with no subsequent problems. Firefox has also crashed 2-3 times with 7068.

Haven't loaded this new build on my desktop yet. And like I said, laptop runs fine after all these crashes. But I've used every 7 build so far and none were as crash-happy as this one.

Hi, S1W2, What happens when you press Win key and any of the arrow keys meaning up/down /left/ right.

Clean install from Damon Tools?
I tried to install Daemon Tools in build 7000 but haven't succeed and didn't even check it later.So you are saying that now Daemon Tools are compatible with Seven?

Hi Limneos,

Thanks, mate - tried that, but it hasn't done the trick.

Hi jfar - nothing happens with win+arrow keys.

Hi drazenn - DT is installed on my Vista partition. I ran the 7068 install from there. Come to think of it, I also installed 7048 ( which had the same explorer errors ) in exactly the same way.

PowerIso installs and works fine on 7.

I'm sure plenty of others did that too.

Strange error indeed. Just tried it; Win + E opens explorer fine & Win + [Arrows] alters how the currently opened app appears on screen. Will look further into it....

AVG 8.5 and build 7068 x64

My first impression of 7068
I love it! Somethings that really makes me happy is that the drivers for my wireless adapter were already built into the OS so Windows loaded up with the internet right away! It also feels much more responsive and stable than all previous builds. All I have to say is well done Microsoft!

Language Bar on 7068
Hi, Does anyone have the language bar pop up with the UAC prompt? There is also a small keyboard icon top left of the Welcome screen. During install , the language bar popped up when I slected Keyboard language from the drop down flap. :confused:
