Works fine on Windows 8 RTM Final

Deutsche Anleitung: Ohne den Metrostyle starten - was muss ich einstellen?


Note: The 4Desktop.exe don't work with double click on the Desktop.

Autostart
Win+R shell:startup and extract the correct exe here.


The better way is Windows’s Task Scheduler

Win+R taskschd.msc
Click on Task Scheduler Library, then right-click the task list in the upper-middle pane and select Create New Task from the context menu.
Enter a descriptive name for the task and click on "Run with highest privileges"
Tab Trigger: Click on the New button and select At log on next to Begin the task at the top of the new trigger window. Click OK afterwards.
Tab Action: Select New. Now click on browse and pick the 4Desktop_xxx.exe and click ok.
Tab Conditions: Only Laptop users uncheck the “Start the task only if the computer is on AC power” box.

Thats all. I hope it's works fine for you.

Now why can't this be for Windows 7 if it works with Rainmeter? I think this would be great for Omnimo!

Rainmeter works on the desktop. Hide Rainmeter and you have the same effect. ;)

Actually I worded it horribly. It should've been something along the lines of "Now why can't this be for Windows 7 if this were to be a part of Rainmeter? I think this would be great for Omnimo!"

Sorry for any miscomprehension.

Why not just disable it?

The start menu, I mean...

disable works only in the developer preview not in the release preview.
