Is there a way to for me to change the wallpaper...ive never really dealt with the logon stuff before? But I love your login box, I just want to try out a couple different wallpapers with it so I can match my "theme". Thanks!
Yeah, it's really easy. The best way is to go to C:\Program Files\Wincustomize\Logon Studio and make a copy of the Playing Hoops folder. Then you can rename it whatever you want. Then open whatever wallpaper you want to use in Paint or whatever graphics program you have and save it as bmp_100 in your new logon folder.
Then when you open Logon Studio, you new logon will show up in the list. It will still have the old preview picture and name info in the window, but it will be your new logon with the new wallpaper. Doesn't take very long at all.
If you have any problems, let me know. And thanks!
Ya I got a quick question, everytime I click on a new .logonxp file(to install), it installs fine, but a "smartsound quicktracks setup" keeps trying to run, as if I was trying to install it(but its already installed). So i press cancel, and then it comes up(reloads) again, and again, and again, til ive pressed the cancel button about 3 or 4 times. ??? Any thoughts on this? Thanks so much for all your help, im trying to do the background thing right now..I'll let you know how it turns out.
Logon Studio would have nothing to do with that. I've had stuff like that happen before though...sometimes when I'd start my computer things would try to install that were already installed. Most of the time I just ran the installer again and it seemed to take care of it...but yeah...it's very strange.
Thanks. To use my logons, you need to have XP and install Logon Studio. It's a free logon changing program and you can get it here: [link]
Once you have it installed, download the logon and doubleclick the Playin Hoops.logonxp file and it will open the Logon Studio window and show up in the list of available logons.
If you use Internet Explorer, sometimes it will change the .logonxp extension to .zip. You can either rename it back to .logonxp and doubleclick it, or unzip the file and put the Playin Hoops folder in C:\ProgramFiles\Wincustomize\Logon Studio. Then when you open Logon Studio, it should be in the list of logons.
Let me know if you have any problems...and thanks again!
I've been using a beta version for a while....not the released version, but pretty much the same....works great for me. I'll be getting a new computer fairly soon...so I'm just getting used to it on the old computer. Actually, I have Vista and XP on this one...switch to XP to make XP logons...Vista for Vista Logons...
...I heard that all the *older PC`s* won`t work with vista and that I would need everything new-is that right??? And if I get vista- what about all my Programs on my PC is that getting lost or not??? I have no plan - as mostely
It depends on how old and what processor and how much memory you have. If you just get Vista and upgrade from XP, your old stuff should be ok. My computer is about 2 years old and runs Vista fine...but it's getting a bit slow for all this 3d rendering stuff.
And I have an external hard drive with full image backups of my XP and Vista installs...so if something messes up, I can just restore it in a half hour or so. I hate having to do a fresh install of everything.
...I have an external drive too, 250 GB (500 GB) and I always copi 1:1!!!!Because I hate it also when all my work would disapear!!!!
My PC is 2 years old also, it should work!!??My prozessor is 2,4
Well, I wait and see, maybe I install vista to see how it runs, if I don`t like it, then I install my back up image again!!
