Object Desktop reported as expiring (but a year early)

Monday, March 12, 2012 by Scrofulous1 | Discussion: Stardock Support General

I just logged into GameStop/Impulse and received a notice that my Object Desktop subscription was about to expire, and I should renew and/or backup my programs.

I believe that my Object Desktop subscription expires in mid 2013. That is also what is reported on my registrations page at Stardock Store.

Should I just ignore the warning message?

You should get rid of Impulse and use Stardock Central, or the Stardock Store.  Other than that, I got nothing...

As long as the Stardock store shows the right thing you are ok.

However you will need to move off Impulse once that decides you have expired as the database for that is not connected to the Stardock one and so has no idea about any renewals you may have purchased.

As new products will no longer go on Impulse I would suggest moving over to either of the two options RedneckDude suggested soon.

Thanks to both.

I uninstalled Impulse, and as the Stardock Store is reporting the correct expiry, I'll assume it's smooth sailing for now.

I sincerely hope you uninstalled all your Stardock stuff with Impulse first?

 

If not, install Impulse, uninstall all SD stuff with it, starting with WB (Very Important), then uninstall Impulse, run CCleaner or the like, reboot.

Install SDC, install all SD things available via SDC, then get the rest from the store.

 

I should have said this earlier.
