EDIT : Small update down the bottom...

I don't see this mentioned anywhere yet (I'm sure it was but now I can't find it) - for anyone having trouble with DeskScapes in Window 7 Build 7000 (most notably the 64 bit version) please visit the following link:

http://board.iexbeta.com/index.php?showtopic=74361

Orbit30's recently updated his Dreamscene patch (64 bit compatible) and if you install DeskScapes v2.0 after this, it should work pretty well!  Note that you can't upgrade to DeskScapes v2.5, because it simply won't work (complains that DWM/Aero is switched off).

Works for me in Windows 7. Took me a little while cos I didn't follow the instructions exactly - I tried to install Deskcapes first then the patch, but needs to be the other way around.

Well, it kinda worked for me.  On my setup, Deskscapes stops working after a reboot.  If I install it again it works well, but after a reboot...  it just complains that DWM/Aero is not switched on.  Movie playback still works well though and benefits from the DeskScapes bug fixes.

This is a known issue with a possible known fix.  Stay tuned.

How does one get v2.0 but not 2.5? I only can get 2.5 on impulse unless there is some previous-version feature I'm not aware of

Oh.  They've changed the ordering procedure since I bought it then.

 

When I bought DeskScapes, I was given a direct link to a standalone installer package (which was for v2.0 of course).  I guess now everything is moved to Impulse.  I hate it when companies do that.

 

 

 

Aaanyways, anything to report there Zubaz?  It's been a while =]

Interesingly:

DeskScapes 2.0 works 100% even after a reboot on Windows 7 RC 64 bit.

Well it's been a few days since it's been released and Orbit30 has worked his magic again.  You'll need his PlusPatch 10 to install Dreamscene (manual file copying required for 64 bit), then without rebooting install Deskscapes 2.0.

 

It told me it needed a reboot, but before that I tested (and activated) it which went fine as before - and even after a reboot .dreams are still working.  Happy days.
