I'm trying to use Start8tweak to unload Start8 which was the prescribed method in the past.

Now, when you try to launch it, it just opens http://www.stardock.com/products/start8/update.asp . 

I'm already running the latest version (1.47).

Just curious.

I've been away from things the last year or so, due to family issues and being pretty sick myself, and so just now decided to renew my Object Desktop and Wincustomize subscriptions.

The wincustomize subscription renewal completed immediately, with no issues, but I got some sort of error / informational message from the Object Desktop renewal. Don't remember the text of the error offhand, it was something like, 'we'll be in contact', or words to that effect...

Hello all, I'm using WB8/SKS8 and I'm having a hard time tracking down some rogue Tahoma fonts. They're in the right click popups menus in Firefox, the message boxes, tooltips, and OD popup flyout menus. I've tried tracking down and changing all the "OS Default Fonts" I could find, but these ones are eluding me. I've already changed all the skin defined fonts and system defined fonts in the Fonts section, but these don't seem to be affected. I'm editing the Lantana sk...

Hey guys. I can't get Theme Manager to load anything other than Aero Midnight on XP or Vista.

 

I also can't get MyColors to install on either.

 

What's up?

 

I realize that XP is no longer supported, but these programs should work on XP. I hate that I bought a bunch of MyColors themes and can't use them.

 

When I try to install MyColors, it acts like it's installing, until I see the "downloading MyColors" screen, then the window cl...

I had re-download Everwood IP because somehow I misplaced it. Anyway...when I clicked on the installer package it refuses to load as do others I've downloaded. They don't show up in the list even after refreshing it. The icons, when I can get it to work, show up as a mix match between MS default icons, the previous IP and the one I wanted. Any chance of a fix, update or anything?

For some reason, SDC offers WB7 & WB8 as 'New Software' even though I'm running WB8 on my Win7 rig.  Even after refreshing & whatnot.

Posted for benefit of devs.

Would it be possible to add this feature to Start8:

What should the Start button look like?
"None/blank"

Currently we have three options: Default, Start8 and Custom image.
It's not always that any of these option go well with the Windowblinds applied, thus it would be nice to use the one supplied with the WB - which as far as I know isn't possible at the moment.

Start8 Devs, I have a request.

 

Windows 8 natively allows for the use of taskbars on secondary monitors. Start8 does not put a start button on secondaries. Unless I'm missing something.

 

Any chance we could get you to add that function? Clocks on each taskbar would be awesome as well, but I don't want to over expect.

I bought a renewal for my OD-suite subscription, but its not reflected in my account, is that something I should worry about or will it sort itself on its own before my old subscription runs out mid-November?
What conditions have to be met in order for the "Work" live folder to be used?

I have folders which only have documents using "Work"

I have folders which have sub-folders using "Work"

But I also have both of the above situations where the normal live folder icon is being used.

 

Win 8 64 bit

Latest IP version

 

Thanks,

David

I just had to reformat my hard drive and got my data.  I then copied all my gadgets from backup to a new folder on my C drive.  When I tried to open the made in the shade weather gadget it failed and Windows closed the program giving an unspecified error.  I tried dl'ing a fresh copy and it also failed.  I then tried some others and most failed.  The ones that work so far are Blue my Mind and CF65 (2 different versions).  I have no idea why this is happening and...

Hey guys, haven't been around in a while, and now  I have a problem.

Apparently my installation of Windows got hosed and now I need to do a re-install. But before I do that I want to backup my skins from WB and OD, but I can't remember where they're located. Particularly OD, I really don't want to have to re-do my dock, can I just copy over the settings file and be good to go?

Also, since my ODNT expired and Stardock Central doesn't list WB, somehow I need to get t...
