Can no longer apply changes after downloading newest version DesktopX

Thursday, November 11, 2004 by Murex | Discussion: Stardock Software

After updating to DesktopX version 2.30.032 I can no longer apply any changes to any object with a script. Example : Expanding dock by martin, When I try to apply a change of any kind to the dock, Desktopx shuts down. I have all ready downloaded the script fix, It did not correct the problem. I am running xp pro sp1. also I can not make any hue changes to an object now. Thank you for any help you can give me.

I DON'T KNOW HOW YOU WENT ABOUT IT.BUT MY MOST SUCCESSFUL WAY OF UPDATEING DESKTOP X
IS ARCHIVE THEN UNLOAD THEN RESTART WINDOWS THEN UPDATE AND LOAD FOR A CLEAN INSTALL. THEN I USUALLY DON'T HAVE ANY PROBLEMS. IF YOU UPDATE IT WHILE IT'S RUNNING YOU CAN GET GLITCHES OF SORTS.THATS ME . GOOD LUCK TO YOU!!

I did not have any problems with the newset build of DesktopX.It seems tho me that SDC did not update DesktopX correctly, and you might have to unistall and reinstall DesktopX.

Thanks Jingles and aufisch

I have uninstalled and reinstalled numerous times the only way I can have desktopx work is to use version 2.21 even then I still have some problems such as not able to make color changes to objects and I can't skin the sys try or task. And as of today I still haven't heard anything from stardock.

Hmm thats weird indeed, have you tried the News-group (news.stardock.com > stardock.desktopx)?, often the program developers hang around there and you get often a quick reply.
