Dx won't start up while Windowblinds is running

DX error

Saturday, July 30, 2011 by WeatherBound | Discussion: OS Customization

Running Windows 7 32bit

latest version of DX and windowblinds

 

Every time windowblinds is running and try to start DX up.  Dx  will give a error message and not run.

When I unload windowblinds. Then try to start up Dx works perfect.

 

Any fixes? anyone else have this problem?

 

Thanks WeatherBound

Verify install on each. I have never seen this.

 

What version of DX?  What is the error message?

 

Do this, go here, only use your info, and delete the current theme folder.  Try again with a different DX theme.

Haven't ever seen that issue, WeatherBound.

Hey Wiz, there's ample reason to remain sanguine: It don't do crap to fix grammar.

The cause is windowblinds. I have tried opening Micosoft PictureIT! and get same error when Windowblinds running. Unload WB and it works fine.

WeatherBound what you might try is uninstall both WB and DX then run CCleaner or a similiar program and reboot.  Then reinstall WB's, reboot and then install DX.  Hopefully that will clear things up.  If that doesn't I'm not sure what to suggest.

That version is a waste of hard drive space. use  3.5

Use Impulse to verify your WB install. Go to your software tab, select WB and hold down shift and r-click. Select verify installation.

Wiz is correct. I assure you DX and WB work fine together. The problem lies elsewhere, probably in DX. Use 3.5. I can't strees this enough. At this point, any DX above 3.5 is fubar.

Also be sure it's not a script error. Feel free to send me the DX theme you're trying to load. I'll check it here.

Ooops, I should have paid closer attention to your version of DX, I agree with RND and Wizard.

So. I went under wb settings excluded DX and picturit from being skinned and they both started up with WB.

still need to find 3.5?

A couple of months ago I would have said use Impulse, change the setting to only show release versions vs beta but with the recent changes I'm not sure how the correct way to get is.

WeatherBound try going to this link  https://store.stardock.com/login.aspx?ReturnUrl=/myaccount/products

Sign in and take a look, I'm showing version 3.5 for DX which is the last released version (non-beta).  Hopefully it shows the same for you.
