Docks in question: ObjectDock free, RocketDock, CircleDock
Docklet: stacksdocklet v1
Also happens with: RKLauncher, Aquadock, StandaloneStacks
OS: Windows 7 Pro x64.
The icons on most stacksdocklet (v1) stacks in 2 portable RocketDocks are blank. (EDIT, another restart: now ALL RocketDocks have blank icons for their stacks.)
Most icons in standalonestack are also blank.
In these stacks, 1 icon is a custom ico, 1 stack is all self-picked icons from installed EXEs, 1 stack are normal program shortcuts with their default icons.
CircleDock throws "Failed to get icon index" on startup.
They were all fine through many reboots; now it happened all of a sudden, and has persisted through 3 reboots.
The icons to launch the stacks are fine. All other dock icons are fine, be they installed or portable applications, except for RemixOS Player (an installed pre-packaged Linux VM) and WindowProcessLogger (a portable application). These are the only missing icons on a dock itself, and so are the only ones with blue questions marks instead of being blank.
StandaloneStack shows icons for:
Appetizer, AquaDock, MaxLauncher, MobyDock (can you tell I was evaluating a bunch of old docks?), ObjectDock, RadialMenu, RkLauncher, and a batch file to close StandaloneStack when the process doesn't close.
StandaloneStack is NOT showing icons for:
All 3 Rocketdocks, Cybergenic Shade (an app sandbox thing), SliderDock, StandaloneStack.
RECENT CHANGES: Uninstalled 2 Win 9x-era programs that removed "unused" shared files while uninstalling; installed lots of browsers for evaluation: SlimJet, Ghost, Maxthon, Maxthon Nitro, Midori, Sleipnir, Torch, Baidu.
I'm mainly concerned if an old application I uninstalled deleted something it shouldn't have. Is that likely? Does anyone know what could have been broken here? What I can check or do?
I'm pretty sure I'd already restarted after those uninstalls and I did NOT have this problem, but I'm not sure.
I have 3 RocketDock installations. One was a normal installation to D:\Program Files (x86) (FYI, D is a programs drive, NOT the OS drive; that is still a proper C:), set up, and then LATER I turned on the setting for portable INI so that I could install 2 more instances. RocketDocks 2 & 3 are portable installations right on the root drive folder: D:\RocketDock 2, for example.
So to be clear, all 3 RocketDocks are technically portables, but #1 was first installed normally.
Another note: I don't use stacksdocklet v2 because no matter how I change the user permissions on the RocketDock folders & its .exe, settings won't persist through reboots. I gave up.
The other listed programs are installed normally.
(EDIT, another restart: now ALL RocketDocks have blank icons for their stacks.)
Old description: Right now, only RocketDock #1 is showing its stacks properly - 2 of them. RocketDocks 2 & 3 work, but the icons are blank. The SAME folder will display just fine in RocketDock #1. The stacks in RocketDock #1 will NOT display their icons in 2 & 3.
After seeing it come up in a google search, I decided to open CircleDock. CircleDock has worked perfectly, but now a critical error on startup:
Window Title: "Assertion Failed: Abort=Quit, Retry..." etc.
Message: "Failed to Get Icon Index
At Sysimagelist.iconindex...(string filename, boolean
At Sysimagelist.iconindex (string filename, boolean...
At ImageListThumbnailGenerator.Get.JumboLargeThumbnail (string filename)
buttons: Abort | Retry | Fail
It's a lot to type so I hope that gives some idea.
The message comes up 3 times, which I assume goes with the 3 shortcuts I have in CircleDock. Once closed, CircleDock loads, and the icons are replaced with blue question marks. Just like the other docks though, the shortcuts still work.
This SEEMED to be starting earlier. StandaloneStack has always shown one application in its list without an icon. I could find no logic to it. For example, when I added RocketDock to the List, RocketDock didn't have an icon. When I added a 2nd Rocketdock, the 1st one got its icon but the 2nd didn't. If anything, it seems like the 2nd-to-last program in the list would have no icon, but earlier, it was the 3rd program in the list or something. Very strange. Now it's a pretty random distribution.
