I bought My Colors Tampa Bay Lightning for my wife as she is a Hugh fan of the team.  Now I find that it doesn't work on Windows 7 and I was told that Stardock plans to do away with My colors.  Can some one tell me if there is a way I can pull the WB, Icons, wall, and the gadgets from My Colors and be able to use it as a normal WB. I'm not sure if this can be done as My Colors won't even install on Windows 7.
All I get when I try the download link is the Impulse set up exe
 
I see in one of the posts Stardock plans an update to My Colors.  Not sure how long that will take. My wife would like to use the WB now . Can this be done?
Thank you for your help

Thank you but what am I suppose to rename?  I can't download any thing to rename. All I can download is the My Colors setup EXE.

Except for my order information and a link to download Impulse the below information is all that was sent.. There is no link to a zip file or any other file other then Impulse.


If the download link for your software does not point to ImpulseDriven, you can download your software straight from that link. Otherwise, you will use Impulse to download and install your software.

Download and install Impulse from:
http://www.impulsedriven.com/about.asp

If you do not already have an Impulse account, select "Create new account" when you first run Impulse and reach the "Welcome to Impulse!" screen. You must register with the same email address you used to place your order, as shown above. If you have placed orders under multiple email addresses, please email sales@stardock.com to have your records merged.

Run Impulse, log in with your Impulse account, and you will find your software available for download under the My Games or My Software tab.

If your software does not show up automatically, you are logging in with a different email address than above. You can register your serial number manually by following these steps:

1) Go to the registrations area of Impulse by clicking the question mark near the top right corner and selecting "Register a product with Impulse...".
2) Click the "Add Registration" button at the bottom of the window.
A. Copy and paste your serial number into the Serial Number field.
B. Enter the email address you used to place your order, as shown above.
C. If the Product Category and Product do not automatically change to the correct product, change them as necessary.
D. Click "Add Registration".
3) Impulse should now display your software under the My Games or My Software tab.
4) Select your software from the list and an Install button will appear in the bottom right corner. Click Install and follow the prompts.
5) Impulse will download all the necessary files and install them to your hard drive. Once this process is complete, click Run to launch the software or use your Windows Start Menu as you would for any other application.

If you need your registration information (Impulse accounts, serial numbers, download links) in the future, please visit:
