All my subs are active and I can install all the applications individually, but object desktop application shows nothing.

 

I'm running Windows 8.1 64bit.

Signed into ObjectDesktopManager with the same credentials as your Stardock account?

If i recall correctly I believe if you install individually the object desktop manager wont see them. They have to be installed thru he manager for them to be seen by it.. I could be wrong but I think that's what I read somewhere..

Your account looks to be OK. Nothing is showing as available to install under the 'Manage' tab? Does anything show up under the 'Installed' tab?

Clearly not the only person with this problem. It is happening to me, also the posters at: http://forums.stardock.com/452523/page/1/  and http://forums.stardock.com/453780/page/1/#3461816

I tried uninstalling everything from Stardock, rebooting and re-installing ODM. When I did, the programs all appeared in the dialogue, so I selected those that applied to Win 8 and installed. ODM duly downloaded them and seemed to do the installs, but when it had finished neither the Manage nor Installed tabs had anything in them. Also, nothing actually had been installed.

Been wondering why SDC & ODM have 'blind spots'.  HG_E may be on to the reason.

Following up. I uninstalled everything again using Revo on its most aggressive mode, rebooted, ran CCleaner to clean the registry, went into the registry manually to clear out every reference to Stardock and ObjectDock, rebooted again, this time ODM installed everything fine and it all appears in the Manage and Installed tabs.

Glad you're good to go, Keith, but SD needs to work on ODM so that it can be used effectively to manage previously installed apps without having to go through that drill.  They have smart guys & gals who should be able to figure it out.

Spoke too soon. Just opened ODM for the first time since I posted the above and ... nothing there, which is nonsense. Nothing on Manage or Installed tabs. So, basically, ODM is about as much use to me at the moment as a pile of poo in a swimming pool

Quoting KeithCollyer,

I disagree.  You can actually do something with that.
