I have scoured the forums here and at the HyperPin forums to no avail. I want to run HyperPin as my shell replacement in Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit (on an SSD). I have tried everything I can find and everything I can think of on my own to get it to work, but I always end up with the same result: nothing but a black screen with an arrow mouse pointer in the center. I have added a "Shell" entry to the WinLogon section under the CURRENT_USER part in the registry, and quintuple-checked that my shell path for HyperPin (F:\HyperPin\HyperPin.exe) was correct, and I have disabled both UAC and the "GUI boot" option in MSCONFIG to hide unsavory Windows elements, so the black screen is expected as my background. Pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL and choosing the Task Manager, I see no programs (at all) or processes for HyperPin running. Therefore, my theory is that HyperPin is being launched as my shell, but is crashing immediately for some reason. I can choose "Run" from the File menu of Task Manager and run HyperPin from there with no troubles, and it works just fine in Explorer (normal windows).
I spent hours on this yesterday, and it has me completely flummoxed. Please help!
