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!

WindowBlinds on Windows 8 and Secondary Monitor Issues

I have WindowBlinds installed on Windows 8 and it seems that when I run any theme other than the default Windows 8 theme (YUCK!), when windows open on the secondary monitor in a maximized form, the window gets distorted and the only way to fix it is to un-maximize the window and re-maximize the window.  Also, it seems that there is some kind of extra border around the window that that seems to stop the window from fully maximizing on the secondary monitors and the contents of said maximized window doesn't fully fill the monitor.

Quoting trparky,

Precision?  What is that?

Precision is one of the skins that are shipped with WindowBlinds.

OK, same thing is going on with the Precision skin only it seems far more pronounced with the Precision skin.  Something is definitely broken here.

Please download and run the following utility: http://sd.stardock.com/SDSupportTool.exe

This is a tool that we use to gather relevant log files and basic information about your computer. Once the utility finishes running, please send the .zip file it creates on the desktop to support@stardock.com with a link to this post.

Thanks,

Alright, I have done just that.  I have sent the email message and the ZIP file the tool generated.

I downgraded to Windows 7 from Windows 8 (I wiped and reloaded) and installed WindowBlinds on Windows 7 and the issue exists even on Windows 7.
