Title should be:
"Version 4.1: Desktop is black"

Problem is registry change to compact13tools.reg wrt Forevershell:
(The fix is simple)
I always use the Forevershell:

The registry for Compact13MinShell starts with:

IF SYSGEN_COMPACT13MINSHELL=1

IF SYSGEN_COMPACT13FOREVERSHELL!=1

; FOREVERSHELL overrides MINSHELL

; Depends on GWES and services

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\init]

"Launch80"="Compact13MinShell.exe"

"Depend80"=hex:1e,00, 3c, 00

ENDIF COMPACT13FOREVERSHELL

ENDIF SYSGEN_COMPACT13MINSHELL

Whilst Forevershell requires Compact13MInShell, the logic above is wrong if you have Compact13Minshell but not ForeverShell.

Please change compact13tools.reg in that part , at top to:

IF SYSGEN_COMPACT13MINSHELL=1

IF SYSGEN_COMPACT13FOREVERSHELL!=1

; FOREVERSHELL requires Compact13MINSHELL
ENDIF COMPACT13FOREVERSHELL



; Depends on GWES and services

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\init]

"Launch80"="Compact13MinShell.exe"

"Depend80"=hex:1e,00, 3c, 00

ENDIF SYSGEN_COMPACT13MINSHELL

I noticed that these registry settings were missing as well as the Menu ones from nk.bin
(Menu Project-Show Built Image)
So there would not be a reference to the background color (hence black) and background image.

With the change above I can now see them

I’ll post an update on here soon
