We have not been able to reproduce the issue with Aero Midnight failing to apply. Can those exhibiting this problem please post how they updated applications? SDC or Impulse?
I updated through Impulse. Since you've posted this, I tried updating through SDC (I was unaware that SDC even functioned anymore) -- Updates installed, but the problem persists....when applying Aero Midnight through theme manager, all aspects of the suite install except the Windowblind.
Incidentally, this whole update has turned into a train wreck for me. First, I figured the problem had to be on my end, so I uninstalled Impulse, noticed that the Impulse dock was "broken" - figured it had to be me, right? So, like I said, I uninstalled Impulse; then ran CCleaner, and TuneUp Utilities, rebooted and tried to reinstall Impulse from the website...in the middle of the install, it kept popping up that I needed to turn off my firewall, so I did that, but the problem persisted.
So THEN I figured the problem HAD to be with my Windows .NET framework, so I uninstalled that and tried to reinstall...and THAT failed from the Microsoft site. So I shot Microsoft an e-mail, and if I'm lucky, I'll hear back from them in a week. GREAT!
Unable to just leave things as they are, I downloaded the MS .NET framework file from a hippo file link, which appeared to download, but still, Impulse will not install, continues to pop up that box that says I need to turn off my firewall.
You would think by now I would learn to wait a couple days before I try to access the new stuff from Impulse, but I'm very impatient (maybe because the Stardock staff enjoys teasing us for so long with the lovely new toys they're designing, by the time they're ready to be dispensed to the public, I'm like a hungry dog ready to eat my own young to get at the new stuff).
Anyway this domino effect cruise on my FailBoat has me ready to climb the walls...I have no idea whether the problem is with my computer, Impulse, Microsoft, the Devil, a curse placed on me by an ex-BF somewhere in my past, or WHAT, but I should probably learn to follow my Mom's lead and just be happy I can play solitare on my computer!
This was such a lovely way to spend my day off! I'm out of money, out of intoxicating beverages or other chemical means of calming down. I guess it's time for me to read a book or something.
