i have a question...
I have been using Personalization for a few months (i was very happy about it by the way, have been using portable version of the program)
But now i have upgraded to Home Premium, so i don't need to use it anymore. Problem is...i can't change my wallpaper anymore (not in official windows and not in Personalization (can't open it, i get the error: Only for starter and home basic, your windows 7 edition is not supported")
can you please help me?

greets from belgium

Yes it is a know issue
What you have to do.
1. Remove your version of Personalization panel
2. Re-download new/fixed version on Personalization panel (v 1.1.0.1) from here: http://winaero.com/download.php?view.3
3. Install it as portable application and run:
personalization.exe /uninstall
4. Remove folder with Personalization panel
I an sorry for that bug :( Really.

To all:
Recommended update here
Version 1.1.0.1
* Improved [patched] transparency for Windows 7 Home Basic
* Minor UI bugs fixed
* New /uninstall switch to restore registry rights. Also used in uninstaller.

Download link changed and updated

because not everyone has windows 7. If this was to work on Vista it would be great!
(let it be known that i have Windows 7 and that i dont use this product. My machine can do damned near about anything at all)

Villain, I am Windows Vista Home Basic user since i buy laptop with that OS.
But i can't find any limitation in UI/personalization in Vista HB. It already have good built-in personaliztion panel and Aero Glass works on Vista HB much better than in 7 HB.
So, i think Vista not need for yet another personalization application.
Let me know where i am wrong.

Does transparency work for Windows 7 Starter? I cant seem to get it to function?

I have replaced the aero.msstyles file (had to use Linux due to TrustedInstaller prevention), but still no transparency.

Cheers!

Another important update for Personaliztion Panel
Personaliztion Panel 1.2

New version 1.2 got DWM controller service, which solves all problems with global composition state.
Now if you switching from basic theme to aero theme, its not a problem anymore. Composition will be restored correctly.
Enjoy
