Thank you Floyd for all you've done in regards to getting these old programs up and running on Windows 8+, they've been a great asset to us over at WinClassic. Mad props.

Is there any way to make the Settings tab work as well? I really hate win10 moving everything to UWP...
Also, could desk.cpl from XP be made to work with the same steps? (Of course I'm not expecting XP themes to work.)

i tried the windows xp version, it seems to require a lot of other dlls which in turn require even more in order to get it to work

the settings tab actually kinda works, just not correctly, i have no idea how you would fix it.
