Quoting starkers, reply 71Still hoping that WindowBlinds 7 will feature a 'select folder' option to designate where skins are kept/accessed.
It would greatly assist those dual and triple booting, through a singular library for all OSes.... not to mention significantly reducing full system AV/anti-spyware scans.
Sharing a skins folder between OSes is not supported as it can cause problems with some of the WB4 files if you mix WB versions and OSes.
I don't exactly follow your drift here... as in how could WB4 files be problematic on one OS but not on another... eg; XP to Win 7? I have quite a few old WB's (like from my XP days) in my WB backup folder, but I had no conflict issues when triple booting XP Pro x86, Vista Ultimate x86 and Vista Home Premuim x64. The entire content of the backup folder was copied over to the WB folder in each OS and (not that I applied every single skin) everything seemed to work as it should have.
I realise blinds made for WB4 do not support the latest features, and that they may not fully skin the UI in Vista and Win 7, but what actual harm could it do to have a shared folder?
And why would anyone be running different versions of WB on the same physical machine but different OSes when WB7 is the latest and supports all the new features, etc?? It just doesn't make sense to be keep WB4/5/6 when 7 is available.
