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!

I have a personal usage license for Deskscapes 8, but I want to install it on a second machine

Some EULA clarifications

1. Install and use one copy of the SOFTWARE on a single computer.
2. Install a second copy of the SOFTWARE on a second computer only if you are the main user of this computer (home computer or laptop for

That was quoted directly from the EULA, found here:

So how exactly do I go about doing this? My first installation was on my personal laptop, which only I use. I was planning to do the second installation on my work PC (which I'm also the only user), but the installer won't let me "Unlock previous purchase" (it says wrong email/password when I'm pretty sure I typed both correctly).

Hoping to get a reply soon. Thanks!

Question. Did you save the installer package?

Unfortunately, that EULA is outdated.

Please see for Stardock's standard EULA
You will need to purchase a license for each machine.

As for activation, it sounds like something is blocking the activation process.

Please follow the steps at for manual activation.

Thank you for the replies. Too bad I found the outdated EULA, and I didn't really see one included in the installer package for Deskscapes 8. Anyways, that's all I needed to know. I'm still checking out my PC if its specs are up to snuff (new workstation) before I make another purchase.


Again, thank you guys.
