When I go to my stardock account there is nothing listed to download. There was an update for windowblinds 7.4 but nothing else.

I must say I am entirely impressed! All my Windows 7 WB's work great on Windows 8 and SkinStudio7 works in Windows 8 too!  Only thing I see in Windows 8 that may need looked at is the explorer window menus (File, Edit, Etc.) are white in the background with no apparent way to change them. Might add that to the list Neil if it isn't there already. Fantastic job Stardock, well worth the wait!

Is object desktop different than desktopX? I purchased desktopx3 run-time client years ago but it never worked right and have never been able to update it.

Are the programs different? And how is it that I got desktopX? I don't see a download for that specific program. Granted my eyes aren't what they once were

Object Desktop is the suite of Stardock's desktop enhancements.  If you only purchased DesktopX then you don't have the full package.

I copied all of my skins from my backup folder to the new windowblinds folder and they don't show up. Any ideas? Thanks.

You need to use the rebuild list option in WB. Click the icon at the top left to access the menu.

Thank you STARDOCK!! I have been waiting for this. After I installed it someone ask me why my Windows 8 looked better than the one they had at home. I just smiled.....

Thanks! That worked.

It was too late for me. I've paid my last subscription with Stardock. I jumped on an OD subscription after receiving a promotional email back in November, that  -- at a first glance -- seemed to promise WB for Windows 8. Lots of people here seem to have done the same thing. When it turned out that just about the only piece of functionality that actually worked with Windows 8, was Start8 there was no apology, no refund, just "it'll come when it comes,  you should have read the fine print".  There were new posts in the forum on this theme almost every day, many of them removed. I essentially missed out on 60% of my subscription period, so I feel ripped off, cheated and badly treated. Stardock really missed the train.
