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!
I have now installed Decor 8 on two different Windows 8 PC's, and even though when I run Decor 8 and it says it is v1.05, when I run Stardock Central it keeps saying that Decor 8 v1.05 upgrade is available, and my installed software list says I have v1.02 (beta) installed.
Tom, I think Stardock Cebtral is a pre beta program. I don't have it yet.
Thanks Jim! Corrected.
Uhmmm, is anyone from Stardock going to address this issue soon? Because it is still occurring.
Good morning Tom. Perhaps you would get better results posting in the Stardock Central Support section. Just a thought.
Thanks Wiz, actually I emailed support on it, and I don't even see a Stardock Central Support section in the forums anywhere. Matter of fact, I don't see a support category/area on any product anywhere in the forums other than those users happen to post. Is the a product support area even in the forums?
I provided a link in my reply, but here it is again: http://forums.wincustomize.com/forum/1028 In the header at the top where it says
I don't see any for the newer programs yet like Fences 2 or Decor8 but there is one for ObjectDesktop.
OK, thanks Wiz. You would think Stardock Support would be a main category and not a sub-category of OS Customization though. Oh well.
The forums aren't an official support outlet. It's always best e-mail or start a support ticket at http://esupport.stardock.com/index.php?/Tickets/Submit
Although the Support team frequently hits the forums, there's lots of noise where things can be missed.
It would help to post the ticket number as well.
Two very good reminders, Spencer!
Ticket ID is SFR-526-77022 ID. Just got it this morning.
Nod, I have the exact same issue, Décor 8 says 1.05(no beta in there though) installed, Stardock Central says 1.02 beta installed, waiting to be installed is 1.05 beta of Décor 8.
Cheers , let us know if there is an answer.
One of the following files will resolve the issue (depending on your OS).
Download using IE and run as admin:
If it doesn't resolve the issue let us know.
Thanks Zu, I got an email from support too with the same fix info. Have to wait until I get back home to run the .reg file though as I am up here in Michigan ( a few miles from Stardock) right now visiting family.
It worked great, once i figured out how to run it as admin. Managed to get IE10 in Windows 8 to run as admin and then just downloaded and ran immediately the reg file, it worked great. Stardock Central is happy now, with no more Decor 8 downloads popping up everyday.
