...:::My System Info:::...
Windows Version: Microsoft Windows XP Professional (Build 2600)
Shell Version:6.0.2600.0
Internet Explorer Version: 6.0.2600.0000

Nothing at all happenes when I start pressstart.exe.
I have tried both with and without Start Killer running.
Also tried to move the .exe to root of drive.

It Is strange ??? I have tested PresStart on the same config and all work correctly.
Maybe you have some software that improve system tray? Please inspect processes in TaskManager, can you find something like TrayServer.

- Corinthian - 03-13-2002

No TrayServer, or any other Tray software.
I'll let you know if I figure it out.

Sorry, same result.
Nothin happenes.
I can see it appearing in task manager -> processes in half a second, thats all.

- Yuri Kobets - 03-13-2002

Well, I'll find some other method to open Start Menu.

- Yuri Kobets - 03-13-2002

Try with PresStart v1.2 Big Grin

I'm really sorry, but it will not open my Start Menu.
I have tried to switch back to the XP start menu, but it is the same as classic start menu... it just don't open.

It opens with the Win key on my keyboard though...

OK, found the problem.

I tried to start presstart.exe from windows explorer instead of Powerdesk, and it worked.

Strange, I have used Powerdesk for many years and never experienced compatibility problems before.

(Powerdesk is a file manager)
