I'm using Windows 7 and Stardock Central, made sure to only select DeskScapes 3 but it seems that 8 was also installed along with 3. Is that supposed to happen? And why are there two versions to install and only one program installed?

Email sent. I also noticed that SC installs DeskScapes 3 version 3.50.000 and DeskScapes 8 version 3.50.040 right alongside. Then it prompts me to update DeskScapes 8 to version 8 and sure enough, tells me to uninstall the previous DeskScapes version before installing version 8.

We have reproduced the issue and have escalated it.

Thanks!

Feel free to uninstall everything and use the download at https://store.stardock.com/myaccount/products

Zubaz, I uninstalled and used the manual download from my account, same exact thing happens. Stardock Central reports both DeskScapes 3 and 8 have been installed with the version numbers I gave above, then asks to update DeskScapes 8, then tells me to uninstall everything before installing DeskScapes 8! So this is clearly a Stardock Central issue.

I'm curious, can I install and use DeskScapes 8 or is it not compatible with Windows 7 at all?

If it helps, I noticed when I uninstalled DS3 and installed DS8, there was still a DS3 folder in program files with the sigbin file in it. Everything else was removed but that. I had no trouble with the update, but thought it odd that folder/file was left behind. I didn't use SDC to update.

Just an FYI

There is a problem with SDC.  Ignore it as the application will work when run fine.

It will work just fine on Win7
