Metro Cheat for WDP by lysy1993lbn Metro Cheat for WDP by lysy1993lbn
Hello, I created simple batch script which allows enable "old" Start menu, keeping all Metro features

It's called "Metro Cheat"

Instructions:
:bulletgreen: Run once takeown.cmd
:bulletgreen: Run METRO.cmd

:bulletred:Attention!:bulletred:
Metro must be turned on in registry, and UAC must be turned OFF.
RPEnabled value should be "1"


:bulletblue: You can add metro.cmd to startup to enable it for every system start

Archive includes 4 batch scripts: takeown x64 & x86 and Metro cheat x64 & x86

:bulletblack: Updates and Fixes
20.09.2011 - Fixed one line in x86 version

great "cheat"! Thanks!

But there is one thing to add. Is it possible to change the behavior of the windows key(from the keyboard). Currently pressing the windows key opens sometimes the win 7 start menu(with the, sometimes the metro UI and sometimes both.

Thanks again!

Sometimes it "cheat" too fast.. Try to edit, add following line on begining of script
timeout /t 5 >NUL
It will delay executing script about 5 seconds

instead run at 'startup',i set it run at 'logon' in group plocy, it works. and also remember to add 5 sec delay first. if not, shell will not start.(I need ctrl+alt+del to start task manager and manually run 'exlorer' to back to shell.) it works fine. thanks a lot

It "cheat" once when You run it, You can turn on UAC back but if is disabled, You must run metro.cmd script as administrator

Check ownership of shsxs.dll (in system32) If next to rename and delete is UAC Shield Icon, try to take ownership manually

Yes, also You need to disable UAC..

To run it in startup, just copy METRO.cmd to "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp"
