So, it goes like this, I'm poking around and organizing every Stardock file and assorted customizations (most somebody else's) into one directory on the portable backup drive. There are files here probably 10 years old or more. As I snoop through I find Fishy, and his buddy Kumanomi. Much delighted and run them. No Fishy, no Kuma, just the two Aquarium fish that swim about all the time. They are there in the tray, their menus seem to work right, but no Fishy and Kuma are swimming past.
My setup is the same laptop I have always had. Currently it is using only the external monitor. It is running Windows 7 x64 Ultimate. I even tried installing DesktopX. The widget that comes with that works like a widget should, as does a Christmas one I accidentally clicked on and then couldn't figure out how to close it. I have considered to try it on my Windows 8 x64 Pro machine, but it is in the process of loading the tech preview of 10 Pro, and since I been practicing doing everything I could do wrong on a Windows install and now 36 hours later it seems to be working I am not going to mess with it.
I figure poor Fishy and Kuma are doomed to the "old software" directory, but I though I would ask the Stardock gods and goddesses first. Now that I found them, I really do miss them.
