Hi guys, I was getting ready to buy Object Destop but I remembered that I will be switching to Windows 7 in October when it is released. Does Object Desktop work with Windows 7 or will it? Thanks!

if you have an ObjectDesktop (for some reason called ODNT) subscription you get access to the beta versions of software before it becomes a release version

 

WB7 is released yet, there is beta version

I am currently running Icon Packager 5, DeskScapes 2.9, Window Blinds 7, and Tweak 7 in Windows 7 without any problems.

If you buy Object desktop now, you will have access to all of these and updates to the final releases once Windows 7 is released.

Object Desktop is the best way to go for an OS change, because as applications are updated, you will get the new updates automatically through Impulse.

Just as an FYI ...

I believe Object Desktop is also know as ODNT due to the fact that OD was *first* released as a software product for the now defunct OS/2 operating system.  During the switchover to fully supporting Windows Stardock needed some way to distinguish the two distinct products, hence:

OD = Object Desktop for OS/2

ODNT = Object Desktop for Windows

YMMV

Not a bad guess, but it's actually just short for Object Desktop Network, which was the original full name.  Honestly I like your idea better.

Can you be more specific here?  Since Object Desktop is more than one app, we can't tell which one you're having trouble with.

I can't get Windowblinds to work on Windows 7 either.  I try to start the app and it just gives me the white screen, and Windows is Searching For the Problem..thingy.  Such a shame because I used to make lots of skins and now I can't even get the program to work.

If you verify WindowBlinds in Impulse does it say it is installed correctly? To verify the application through Impulse:

-Launch Impulse.  Right click on the entry for the application and choose "Verify Installation"
-Impulse will check the integrity of the installed application.  You should be given feedback as to the state of the installed application.
-If errors are found, an update should be made available in Impulse.  This is not an update to a newer version, but simply Impulse using the update mechanism to replace corrupted files.
-Once the update completes, reboot your PC.

Try closing Impulse and running the following file:

http://sd.stardock.com/curthendzell/fix_registrations.reg


Make sure to to save the link as a file, some browsers display it as plaintext.  Once you follow the link, save the file and double click it to apply it.  Then relaunch Impulse.  You will need to re-login with your username/e-mail (either will work) and password.

Windows 7 Home Premium x64. Everything works except for Boot Skin and BootskinVista on my computer. (the apps that wouldn't work on Vista still do not work o Win7) I would definitely recommend it if that is what is stopping you. My second year subscription will be up soon and Iwill definitely be renewing it.

BootSkin will not work on Windows 7.  Doesn't support the OS and can cause OS issues.  Do not use on Windows 7.
