    FAQ 2015.09.01 Updated

    Here’s talking about common problems referred by users.

    1. Q: Settings or menu reset after restart?
      A: Firstly, DO NOT run SAO Utils.exe in the ZIP package directly, please extract the package before running. Secondly, please DO NOT extract the package to the system folder, or if you have to do so, please make sure that read and write permission is granted to the SAO Utils folder as well as its sub folders.
    2. Q: What does the LV in the HP-Bar means? & why does it reset to LV1 every time I restart the program?
      A: The LV of HP-Bar indicate the up-time of SAO Utils, so you will lose your previous LV if you close it.
    3. Q: How can I add a Catalog Menu or List Menu in the main menu?
      A: To add sub-menus in the main menu:
      1.Long press the first icon(others are system icons & cannot be modified);
      2.Long press agin on the ‘Modify’ itrem;
      3.Click “+”(Add) on the editing tray.
    4. Q: How can I add system folders such as Computer, Videos and Music folder?
      A: For the restriction of folder picking dialog, we can’t pick up a vitual folder directly. To pick up a virtual or system folder:
      1.Choose ‘url’ in the ‘Action’ label, click ‘…’ button then input on of the strings:
      Computer: file://::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}

      Recycle Bin: file://::{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}
    5. Q: Useful commands?
      A: From the internet:
      Shut Down: shutdown.exe -s -t 0
      Reboot: shutdown.exe -r -t 0
      Lock: rundll32.exe user32.dll,LockWorkStation
      Suspend: rundll32.exe powrProf.dll,SetSuspendState
      Command Line: cmd
      Notepad: notepad
      Calculator: calc
    6. Q: How can I change the display language?(Temporary)
      1. Find your system locale name:
      1.1 Open a CMD window
      1.2 Enter ‘systeminfo’
      1.3 Copy the ‘System Locale’ value
      2. Duplicate existed locale files:
      2.1 Make a copy of the locale folder you want in SAO Utils/Locales folder
      2.2 Rename it as the value(xx_YY) section 1.3 shown
      3.Restart SAO Utils
    7. Q: About icons?
      A: SAO Utils Full contains 200+ sets of icons in the Images folder of program, there are two types of icons in corresponding:
      Images/symbol: symbol icons for the first level menu.
      Images/icon: circle icons for both Catalog Menu & List Menu.
    8. Q: Is it possible to call out the launcher only when I pull down 2 fingers with a multi-touch screen?
      A: I think the GestureSign is just what you’re looking for. Just create an action to run SAO Utils.exe binding with your favor gesture, then you will get the launcher called out.
    9. Q: How can I get SAO Utils to work with VR devices?
      A: Please refer to SAO Utils VR patch and tutorial (for Beta 1 Update 1).
