Sorry I will not try until it can be confirmed it will not cause problems with MS excel Office 2007, a little used program by many

Where it says Excel 2010 you can assume it also says Excel 2007 as that issue impacted both of them.

Ditto. I updated through impulse and when finished, it threw an error log at me saying it failed to activate. On reboot, however, it shows as being activated so all is well.

Dave if you sign in at Stardock.com Store you should see all the stuff that is associated with your account.  Scroll down until you see WindowBlinds 7, it should show a Production and a Beta version.  If it doesn't then you need support help to check out your account.

Just installed the beta from the Stardock Store on Windows XP 32-bit, no issues at all that I can find.  Even Office 10 is fine. Now to try Vista and Windows 7!

Impulse wants me to install 7.20f BETA.

 

According to it, I have 7.20e BETA installed, but WB calls it WindowBlinds 7.3 (build 306x64 - Windows 7 Edition). It's a bit confusing.

installed it yesterday. when turning on rig this morning, my taskbar wasn't transparent. using sakura. tried corsair, sabertooth, and primo too. with each of those skins, after rebooting or booting from shutoff, my taskbar isn't transparent. after reapplying the skin, everything is cool. for what it matters, the 'about wb' info is as follows:

That was an issue with the last beta.  This update resolves that.

Well, not sure about that 7.20f thing, I installed the beta on all 3 OS's (XP, Vista and 7), and although I had no issues whatsoever, the version number reads 7.3 on all 3 OS's, not 7.20f.

It does in About WindowBlinds. Impulse shows the correct # as 7.20f beta for me and I have to agree, it's confusing. Much like DX4 was 3.91beta, not 4.0 beta, which makes little sense to me(but what do I know?)

well, i installed the latest beta and my taskbar isn't transparent until i reapply the skin.

 

and that may have come across as me trying to be a smart a**. sorry, i wasn't trying to be one at all. i'm just pointing out what is going on with my rig currently.

I installed it checked it out found no issues with Excel 2007 as had happened on Previous betas.

Thanks
