I just installed deskscape (twice actually). Everytime I launch it or right click on desktop and go to configure deskscapes it keeps closing. It stays open until I select something on the online tab. I was only able to download one item from there because I was able to click fast enough to download it but it won't stay open long enough to do it again. I paused deskscapes hoping that would help but it didn't . Now I can't unpause it. Again I have reinstalled it hoping it was the initial download, but same problems occur. If I go to configure again it comes up, but if I select anything at this point including downloaded items it immediately closes down. No errors are showing. Window simply disappears. Current selected is still in a paused status and won't change.
Hello,Sorry to hear you are having issues. Please try the purge and reinstall steps : https://forums.stardock.com/485954/deskscapes-support-faq#reinstalling
Just make sure to re-download the latest version from your account, reboot after the purge, reinstall using the latest you just download and reboot again after it done installing. Retest and report back.

So I followed the steps. The odd thing is I was able to download more of the online dreams, but as soon as I finished downloading one the deskscape window closes. I reopened and downloaded another. Same thing. Then once I had reopened and downloaded a few, I applied one of them to my desktop and now my original problem has come back. If I select another dream to download it immediately closes the deskscape window. I can switch between the ones I downloaded already but it won't let me download any new ones at this point. Actually I just tested preloaded ones and those make the window close as well. Only the 3 I downloaded right after reinstalling work. It lets me switch between them with no issues. Anything else new download or preloaded stills close the window. So if I select a preloaded picture it closes in about a second. Can't even get to apply before it closes.
