Hi,

I have just bought WindowBlinds 8.05 and installed it on my both Windows 8.1 update computers and it doesn't work.

No icon appears in the task bar (even with the correct option actiavted).

When I try to launch WindowBlinds, and apply a theme, I got the following error :

Problem detected

WindowBlinds does not appear to be installed correctly on your machine. Would you like to try to fix this issue now?

Even if I click on Yes, nothing is starting.

Can you help me, please ?

Here are infos on my 2nd computer having exactly the same issue (strictly identical, even if the first one is a desktop and the 2nd a notebook):

Wahou, it's working perfectly now !!!

I really hope Stardock will find a definitive fix for this incompatibility between WindowBlinds and ESET NOD32.

Thanks a lot for your help and also fast answers from all.
