  • I'd like to know how to get this running on Windows 7.

    I notice the dll is dated about 30 days before the expiration, and this is later than the other file dates. I think the time limitation was removed, but I can't get get the Context Menu entry to appear. It does seem like a very unique approach -- it's an actual desktop switcher, not an application switcher.

    I hope the Ave, the author is still active on the net??
