I installed Classic Shell yesterday, and now I once more have a Start Button, despite Microsofts latest brainfart.
I downloaded and installed, but the application didn't launch at re-boot. Solutions to this can be:
- In Classic Start Menu settings, General Behavior tab (All Settings), check if "Start automatically for this user" is checked.
- Create a shortcut to "C:\Program Files\Classic Shell\ClassicStartMenu.exe" and put it in your startup folder as a workaround.
Disable your antivirus. It may be blocking the start menu.
Open an administrative command prompt and type "regsvr32 startmenuhelper64.dll" (for 32-bit Windows type "regsvr32 startmenuhelper32.dll")
To do this last step:
- [Windows Button] + [X]
- Click 'Command Promt (Administrative)
- Type in: regsvr32 startmenuhelper64.dll OR regsvr32 startmenuhelper32.dll
where I found my solutions.
