This may have been asked before, but since I just purchased a new laptop with Windows 8 on it, what Object Desktop apps (besides the obvious, Start 8, Decor 8, and Deskscapes), are compatible and can be used on this new OS? Does Stardock intend to make all their software compatible with Windows 8? Is Windowblinds going to be usable on it if it isn't already?

This would be a good place to start.  http://stardock.com/products/?from=nav

You will find that some folks have found that even if the software doesn't show it as Windows 8 compatiable that for the most part others do work.

Here is another forum thread on the subject that may help also.  http://forums.wincustomize.com/432321

moon_dancer, you paid for products that work on Windows7. You got what you paid for. No one at Stardock told you to install Windows 8. 

 

Patience will get you what you want. But you already have what you paid for.

I've noticed that if I install ObjectDock, then Fences won't work. So I picked Fences. Since I updated to 8.1 I've noticed that Cursor FX is giving me problems. No matter which cursor I use, I have to click and click and move to another spot on the link, button, whatever, and keep clicking until it hits it. VERY annoying. Is there anything I can do to fix this?

MouseGoddess, I'd try reinstalling CursorFX, or maybe even try a different mouse. I use CursorFX on Windows 8.1 with zero problems.

 

Just suggestions. I had a mouse to do that. It was a wireless mouse and what fixed it was to move the mouse closer to the receiver. I had to run an extension USB cable.

 

Anyway, I hope you get it fixed, but I don't think it's a Windows 8.1 thing.

Funny you should mention that, but my mouse is a wireless trackball! One of the newer ones with the little tiny transmitter instead of the one with the dongle. Anyway, I did just recently move that little plug-in to a different USB port on the left side of the computer instead of being on the right, which is the side I have the mouse on. That may be the problem. I'll move it back. Thanks for the help!
