Yes I get a similar message, but referring to Windows\System32\Boot\en-GB\winload.exe.mui. Pre-SP1, the file to be altered was, if memory serves, C:\Windows\System32\en-US\winload.exe.mui. Googling for the \en-GB directory (in either place) comes up empty
Brink - hi I downloaded a few .mui files which are in, um, D:\Resources\Vista Cosmetic\Bootscreens and the pictures I tried were in D:\Resources\Pictures. Is the prog expecting them to be in a specific place?
But I never loaded any of the language packs. Also aloNs had trouble with 'C:/Windows/system32/boot/he-il/winload.exe.mui' " (Hebrew, apparently) whereas mine made more sense, in a way - mine was 'C:/Windows/system32/boot/en-GB/winload.exe.mui' " and my locale etc was set to UK, not US. But where is the program getting these directories? I had a look at the environment variables but... Well, it's just a cosmetic thing I guess, so no need to get all bent out of shape about it, but it would be nice just to figure it out
I'm not sure where it is getting these directories from. It seems like some bug with the program on non US locale set systems. You might also contact the support for the program to see what they may say to.
Perhaps it's getting it's references from the Registry, where there are indeed keys containing the string '...en-GB' (though not '\Boot\en-GB'). The strings I found were, bizarrely, connected to Vista's speech-recognition systems.
This does not work for me. I have created a new Boot Screen and made sure the paths are correct when I hit apply. It says that it is applied but now I only get a blank screen with funky colored rainbow. I don't even get the Windows Progress bar any more.
I tried restoring default but that did not work either.
