Wait, what version are you using? 3.6.8 or the beta 3.9.0?
Will try 3.9 now and see what happens.
Oh, I see. I thought those 3 lines were the entire file but there's more.
Looks like you have "shell:Searches" set to open in the Search folder. That's where that extra winrt item is coming from.
I don't know how to get that search function going in the right pane on 3.9
You can use a custom item and set its link to "shell:searches", just like before. You can't have sub-items like "search for people" though.
I installed on windows 8 pro, no problems so far
I'm curious how Classic Shell works with Windows 8.1. Does it replace the Windows start orb or run over the top of it?
3.9 is really working nicely on 8.1 so far.
