    Default Windows 7 Start Orb Changer: Change Windows 7 Start Orb With One Click



    Windows 7 Start Orb Changer is a free tiny portable tool that allows you to change your Windows 7 start orb with one click.

    You can use Google to find start orb bitmaps and I have also added some start orb bitmaps in it.

    There are two files in the archive:

    Windows 7 Start Orb Changer.exe
    and
    r.exe

    These two files should stay together otherwise it will not work.

    If you find any bugs, just inform me about it.

    Download Link

    More Info

    UPDATE: Please download latest version from Change Windows 7 Start Orb with Windows 7 Start Button Changer | The Windows Club

    ************** JIT Debugging **************
    To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
    application or computer (machine.config) must have the
    jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
    The application must also be compiled with debugging
    enabled.

    For example:

    <configuration>
    <system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
    </configuration>

    When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
    will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
    rather than be handled by this dialog box.


    Hope it helps

    ^^Try doing the following:
    1. Click on the "Change Orb" button and when the error comes click on Continue.
    2. If that doesn't work close the tool, open it again and try changing it again.
