Object desktop Expired

Friday, March 12, 2010 by dwax | Discussion: Object Desktop

My subcription to OD expired. can't afford to renew it,lack of work. I see I can't open up Windowblinds, Is says, "This version of Stardock Windowblinds has expired" It was a beta version of WB 7. Am I assuming that I can't use any of the applications I had on OD? I have WB archived, can I un archive it and run it? I had the OBD subcription for 2 years All them programs I can no longer use??

Early beta versions of WindowBlinds tend to have timeouts built in.

You should be able to reinstall a WB6 archive assuming it is a real 6.x series and not a 7.x beta.

All of your ObjectDesktop software will continue to work after your subscription expires. If you have it archived (through Impulse or Stardock Central), you can restore it all. You used to be able to buy a CD with the versions of the software you own, but I'm not sure if that is still the case. It would be a good idea to back up your archives somewhere else while you are at it.
