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!

It should not.  Why do you ask?

Regarding DirectX, there is a misconception on that.  Windows ships without the DirectX helper dlls which is why games and DeskScapes require them to be installed and so use the DirectX update.  It doesn't update DirectX itself, it updates the helper dlls (D3DX_xx.dll)

Could you contact support@stardock.com as the issues you are having are not normal or expected and we have never seen them before.

Also is this Fences 2 or 1 Pro and have you made any changes to make Fences start up quicker after login?

Thank you for putting Revert back to original wallpaper back as an option. ( a well hidden one, I might add.) Still will not apply a dream to either monitor without also appying one to the other. I would prefer it leave the wallpaper applied to the screen I do not want a dream running on.
