Nothing working as intended

I purchased your Object Desktop today. At first, I couldn't get it to work. All the suites I downloaded would load half-way and then freeze. It took 2 re-installs and countless restarts to get it to load a suite. Then it decided to hide my cursor every time I came back from a screen saver so I would have to navigate to CursorXP blindly because my cursor was missing. I just un-installed that. Then I tried to see if things would run smoother if I used a visual style instead of a whole suite. Come to find out, windows blinds will load the skin/theme/style, but not actually make it show up. In my appearance tab it shows up as being activated, but nothing resembling the style I picked was visible, just the windows classic theme. Selecting the styles from the ThemeManager, or WindowsBlinds its self seems to have no real effect. Neither do the Icon Packages. This was a legit purchase.

This is the second time I've tried using the stardock apps, and the second time I've gotten frustrated with it.


WindowBlinds version : WindowBlinds 5 (5.5 (build 94 x86))

WindowBlinds is installed correctly on this PC

WindowBlinds appears to be activated on this PC

Your machine supports per pixel borders on WindowBlinds skins.

My first thought seeing as you can't get anything to work is to ask; Have you in the past customized your computer using hacks and or patches, transform packs etc. If you have you will at very least need to do a repair install of XP to restore Windows system dll's.
