Start8 Devs, I have a request.


Windows 8 natively allows for the use of taskbars on secondary monitors. Start8 does not put a start button on secondaries. Unless I'm missing something.


Any chance we could get you to add that function? Clocks on each taskbar would be awesome as well, but I don't want to over expect.

I bought a renewal for my OD-suite subscription, but its not reflected in my account, is that something I should worry about or will it sort itself on its own before my old subscription runs out mid-November?
What conditions have to be met in order for the "Work" live folder to be used?

I have folders which only have documents using "Work"

I have folders which have sub-folders using "Work"

But I also have both of the above situations where the normal live folder icon is being used.

I just had to reformat my hard drive and got my data.  I then copied all my gadgets from backup to a new folder on my C drive.  When I tried to open the made in the shade weather gadget it failed and Windows closed the program giving an unspecified error.  I tried dl'ing a fresh copy and it also failed.  I then tried some others and most failed.  The ones that work so far are Blue my Mind and CF65 (2 different versions).  I have no idea why this is happening and...

Hey guys, haven't been around in a while, and now  I have a problem.

Apparently my installation of Windows got hosed and now I need to do a re-install. But before I do that I want to backup my skins from WB and OD, but I can't remember where they're located. Particularly OD, I really don't want to have to re-do my dock, can I just copy over the settings file and be good to go?

Also, since my ODNT expired and Stardock Central doesn't list WB, somehow I need to get t...

W8 - DX4 Beta - hangs on the Stardock Account Registration window after hitting Register button.

Other Stardock stuff seems to be verifying ok.

I know, there is a thread for this. I couldn't find it, ok.

OK, SDC shows me Object Dock Plus 2 as an available update.

 I have both plus 2 and plus 1.9 installed.





I would like to point out that if I install this "update" I lose 1.9. We used to be able to have both installed, and I do. I had to install 1.9 from the store. SDC lists them both as Object Dock Plus 2.

Looking to renew my ODU after some time and on the SD store page it has no option to renew. Is this still viable (and cheaper than buying outright again)? Is there a renew time limit, my ODU ran out in late '09?
I have a renew button attached to ODU in Impulse, but i'm very wary about using that, since i don't beleive that will do anything since the sale.

Am i being blind and not seeing a renew button anywhere?

The CF65 desktop gadget has always been one of my faves.  I just tried to apply it and it won't work.  I then tried to re-download it but still the same problem.  Anyone know of a fix?

Today when I first booted up my computer, I got a message that Tiles expired.  I even paid $10 for additional features for a product that I thought was indefinite.  Does that mean i'll have to buy Tiles AND the features over again?  If so, Stardock's ripping me off.  Or do I just buy the program and all of my paid features will still be there?

There is an area you can use to insert shortcuts like tools on the lower side of the Tiles menu, but if you use alot of shortcuts like myself i created a Games menu and all games are there i have like 20 or so... The problem is if you click the Icon on the lower part and there is a shortcut under it... it will run the program under it not the one intended heres an example on a screenshot...
