Stardock Closed for the Holidays
Jan 5, 2015 8:45

Stardock's offices will be closed in observance of the holiday season from December 19th until January 5th, 2015.

During this time there will be a delay in answering support tickets, so we ask for your patience during the holiday period.  While we will keep tabs on the tickets during the break, we will respond to them as quickly as possible upon our return.  

On behalf of the Stardock staff we wish you a happy holiday season and look forward to the new year!

Please add a Check for Updates feature

It would be best if that feature was able to download & install the latest Fences 2.x upgrade.

But even a notice: "You have the latest version of Fences!" or a notice saying "There is a newer version available, please go to ... to download it" would be better than the current lack of this feature.

Thanks!

So you're suggesting we install yet another piece of software to help keep stardock stuff upgraded, when most other developers build that functionality right into each package?

This is why I tend to avoid devs with that mindset.  It eventually turns into a pseudo-DRM scenario.

Quoting Jaga Telesin,

Yes.  Stardock Central is the small-footprint answer to managing and updating the entire collection of Stardock applications rather than an updater 'plugin' for each and every program/product.

It's actually far more sensible...

Wizard and others ---> Thanks!
However, I have ONLY purchased ONE product so far - Fences.
So, it does not seem sensible to me, although it will maybe be sensible for customers who use 2-3+ Stardock products.

Yes, but that's how you justify further purchases to your other half....."but it only makes sense to get more proggies....to take full advantage of the SD Central Updater" ....
