d7 BRANDING SETUP:
d7 can be branded with your own company name and logos. Instructions for this are provided in your registration email..
OS BRANDING SETUP:
Using d7 for Operating System Branding requires a ConfigBrandOS subdirectory inside your d7 directory, containing:
- Your properly sized oemlogo.bmp
- Your preconfigured oeminfo.ini if you have one, else one will be created for you (used for XP/2003 only. For Vista/7, you are prompted for the appropriate branding text the first time you use the feature, and that text is saved to the BrandOS.INI for future reference.)
PORTABLE USAGE NOTES:
d7 is a fully portable application. It stores most preferences in an INI file for portability; however some registry entries under HKLMSoftwareFoolish IT are created for certain shell extension and offline registry hive loading functionality to work properly. These settings are removed when d7 closes, but may remain if d7 is not shut down properly.
d7 may be run from a flash drive, or other portable means by simply copying the application directory to your portable medium. D7 will not function properly when running from a CD, as the app must be able to write to it’s own app directory.
- d7 is only designed to run from and on Windows XP – 8 and server OSes. Previous functionality and support for Windows 9x was partially removed and will no longer be supported.
- A screen resolution of 800×600 is required, and 1024×768 is recommended. 640×480 is not supported and will not allow for the full d7 window to be displayed.
If you experience any strange errors or crashes in d7, a good thing to try would be to install the VB6 SP6 Runtimes from Microsoft. It that fixes your issue, then the system you are experiencing the issue on then likely has missing or outdated versions of those files.
