Old versions

Friday, May 10, 2019 by Jaroepz | Discussion: DeskScapes

Hello all

I am sure i read this somewhere here in the last 10 years i was looking for the latest versions of windowblinds 8.? and iconpakager (before 10) and deskscapes 8.? to keep in my archives any help would be appreciated

i tried deskcapes 10 and it does not seem to play nice with windows 7 ultimate, (win 7 boots to a white screen with deskscapes 10 installed??) i am running windows 7  8.1 and 10 in a multi boot system and would like to have the latest versions of the previous versions of the software i was always able to get it before but not now

thank you for any help...

Hello,

Sorry to hear you are having trouble.

i tried deskcapes 10 and it does not seem to play nice with windows 7 ultimate, (win 7 boots to a white screen with deskscapes 10 installed??)

If you change the renderer, does it work then?

No sir

I would like to have you try the purge / reinstall of DS10 and see if you still have the issue:

Are you using any monitor manager like UltraMon or DisplayFusion?  If so, and you disable them (uninstall is preferred for the test), does it boot properly then?

After the boot, are you able to apply any dream with no ill effect?

Ok, but can you apply a dream with no ill effect?  If after you apply one, and reboot, does it still have that same dream and work well?

yes thats all ok

So, the reboot had the proper, and functioning dream / wallpaper?  If so, would you consider it resolved?

Not a "solution" but more of a "for now"-

If you apply your regular wallpapers through deskscapes and leave deskscapes enabled, my guess is they will work as they should.

I don't have any problems changing from a dream to a static wall or vice versa. Works as it should.

Thanks DaveRI

the program works fine it just screws up windows aero in windows 7

and if i select a non aero like windows classic it boots up perfect to the desktop its just when an aero theme is loaded it boots to a plain white screen ...i went back to version 8.8.50
