This program is obsolete!
Please download ICU to get the newest version of this tool.
After jamesster posted his video about LEGO Island windowed mode, and an easier way was expressed to enable windowed mode, I spent two hours creating the LEGO Island Windower V1 using Inno Setup.
This small program simply changes the Full Screen registry string to whatever mode you want to play in, be it full screen or windowed. The changes are instant, so after running it, you should be able to play in whatever mode you want.
As of V1.3, the x86 and x64 versions from previous of LEGO Island Windower have been merged into one binary.
V1.3 is compiled with Inno Setup 5.5.2 Unicode to support Windows 8. Previous released were compiled with Inno Setup 5.4.3 Unicode, with the exception of V220.127.116.11, which was compiled with Inno Setup 5.5.1 Unicode to better support Windows 8. LEGO Island Windower Win98 (a special build for Windows 9x only, since LEGO Island was originally made to run on those OSs, was compiled with Inno Setup 5.4.3 ANSI.
My source code is available a separate download, as well as a guide on how to compile them yourself, if you want to do that sort of stuff.

Special thanks to Cyrem (Thanks Cyrem!) for making the program icon for V1.0-V1.2.1 (although he didn't make it for the program. He made it for the forum. I just downloaded it and used it myself. ), and rioforce for creating the totally awesome Brickster image for V1.2.2+ and Win98 special build.(thanks rioforce)!
I've also included some LEGO Island quotes in the program. See if you can find them.
Can't Get It Working?
I've tested it as much as I could, but LEGO Island Windower must run as Admin in order to work. This is due to the fact Admin rights are need to write to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE section of the registry, where LEGO Island Windower does it's magic. It will work no other way (sorry about that you who use non-admin accounts! )
If you are having trouble getting windowed mode to work (if you are using an Admin account), try setting LI to run in Ramp Emulation. So far, that is the only known way it will work. V1.3 will automatically do this for you.
