I wrote a tiny post about Boxstarter a long time ago, so maybe it is time to look at it again.

By now, there are way more scripts, so here are some links:

Microsoft Rosebud was MSDAIPP – Wikipedia

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/07/23

On an old system, I found some x86 installers with names like, RosebudMUI.msiRosebudMUI.xmlsetup.xml.

They appeared to be the (now deprecated and never released as x64): MSDAIPP – Wikipedia (Microsoft Data Access Internet Publishing Provider).

Searching for RosebudMUI many returned detection scams like solvusoft, but somewhere further down was this only meaningful result: [WayBack] What is the RosebudMUI AddOn in Visio 2007?

Custom Resolution Utility (CRU)

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/07/16

This tool can help resetting monitor/display configurations for when your machines gets out of suspend/sleep/shutdown mode and resets the displays to wrong defaults (especially wrong scaling).

Documentation and download: [WayBack] Custom Resolution Utility (CRU)

Custom Resolution Utility (CRU) allows custom resolutions to be defined for both AMD/ATI and NVIDIA GPUs by creating EDID overrides directly in the registry without dealing with .inf files. Download:

Note the requirements:

Old version at [WayBack] GitHub – radamar/Custom-Resolution-Utility-ToastyX: Custom Resolution Utility for Windows by ToastyX, duplicated so the source won’t be lost..

Short instructions (but be sure to read the long ones above as well) slightly rephrased for readability:

  1. For each monitor
    1. Disable all of the default “Established Resolutions”
    2. Delete all of the default “Detailed Resolutions”
    3. Delete all of the default “Standard Resolutions”
    4. Add a new “Detailed Resolution”
    5. Under new “Detailed Resolution” I left all of the settings the same except for the active horizontal and vertical pixel dimensions, which is obviously where you set your desired screen resolution.
  2. Once all monitors are configured properly, close CRU and run the restart.exe or restart64.exe included with CRU and you should be good to go!
