Fences update not showing for me in ODM, and the Start8 update locks up.

 

EDIT, apparently, as a subscriber, I had already gotten the fences update.

I installed this update, and it breaks everything. Fences desktop and icons do not even show, and my computer is suddenly terribly slow to boot.

I am going back to the previous version.

After I updated to this version,  I can't move the icons in desktop sometime. However, if I restart my computer, it is ok.

This will not happen in 2.11.

PS: Windows 8.1 x64

This should not be an issue with 2.12 in Win 8.1. Does anything seem to trigger it or does it just happen after a while? When you attempt to drag, do you see the circle with the line through it to indicate you can't move the icon?

I am having a problem under Windows 8.1 where the icons do not move with the fences.  This problem seams to appear randomly.  It may be related to playing a fullscreen game and then returning back to the desktop.  When the fences leave the icons behind they are also not visible on the desktop.  fences are acting like a portal to another world...through the looking glass indeed.

I think this is related to the desktop pages feature.  Even though I have always had this feature disabled, when I have the problem I can click the Enabled checmark and then click it again to disable it and fences start behaving correctly again.

I am using 3 monitors on an nvidia card with a 4th on a second video card. 

Windows 8.1 with 8G of ram, quad core intel sandy bridge

screen rez is 2560x1600 with two 1600x1200 monitors on each side turned 90 degrees (commonly called a PLP setup)

4th monitor is a small display in normal Landscape video mode on a second vid card.  no fences located on it.

Fences release 2.12

Try pressing ctrl+shift+esc and then on the 'Processes' tab, locate 'Windows Explorer' and then right click on it and choose 'Restart'. Does the issue persist?

When the fences can support simple chinese language? or program should not change the system menu description, for example:  the right mouse click menu "Sort by", I wish still the origion description "排序方式"

I tried to restart windows explorer and the issues still persist. I just recently updated to windows 8.1 and I haven't been able to move my Icons since.

You are seeing this happen even with Fences 2.12 installed? If you do not have that version installed, please install it and see if the issue persists: https://store.stardock.com/myaccount/products

I am also experiencing problems. I have Win8.1 x64 Fences 2.12 and I am unable to move any icons on the desktop. I can create a fence when I drag select icons, but I can't move them around (whether they're in or out of a fence, it doesn't matter; no control). I've checked the align to grid and auto arrange settings to make sure they were unchecked, but it doesn't help. Problem persists between reboots and even when restarting the explorer via task manager.

 

Any other ideas? Or is there a patch in the works? I don't mind installing a beta/test build to see if it fixes the problem. 

 

Anyway. I very much like the product! I bought the upgrade right when it was announced because I wanted to support further development of such a useful tool.

 

Thanks again!

For the most part, this issue should be resolved with the current build. Unfortunately, at this time we do not have a beta build available. This is something we will want to look into further.

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 create a support ticket here Include the .zip file it creates on the desktop.

Thank you.

I just uninstalled 2.12 and installed 2.13.

One of two problems is resolved by the update (or possibly just from uninstalling and reinstalling...).  The other problem was a config setting that changed for some reason so effectively both problems seem to be resolved for now.

Well, nevermind my last post.  It seems that when I get it working for one user, the other user account breaks.  

Now I can't drag icons into a fence on Account#2.  

edit: Account#2 is now working properly again after 2 reboots.

What exactly is "SAS trial/activation binaries" and what does it do for us?

 

Thanks in advance!
