Hi there,


I'm wondering why :

Don't know what's happening with the dialog boxes for posting, would like to know which "kind of script" is it, or/and which things don't have to be blocked on "WinCustomize" ... (as i thought i paid for a non "blocked Website" ) ...


Thanks in advance

Hi there,


OK, we have to install apps whixh we download from Stardock Store now, BUT as i wanted to install Skinstudio 5 Pro , I was told that the serail (given on the store) is not valid, and that "it seems that WB is not installed on my machine" or something like that ...


What kind of new joke is it ??? I Want to install THIS version of SkinStudio even if there's also the SkinStudio 7 Pro version.

I paid for it, as well as so many versions we can't install ...

Hi there,

Maybe some of you may have saw that i have to reinstall a XP SP3 PC from scratch and that i can't get some older versions of Icondeveloper/Skinstudio/Iconpackager ... Well, kind of linking with that point i deceided for my second desktop PC, to uninstall everything (apart those three progs) through Impulse and reinstall with the self installer Progs.


For DesktopX, i had what was told DesktopX4 (version 3.91 beta) and Impulse told me i had as well DesktopX4 Pro insta...

I renewed my Wincustomize subscription on, 08/31/11 (which was ending in fact on 09/23/11) and since a few days each time i connect to Wincustomize it's all over adverts (specially Flash ones and a lot of webbbugs) and it's really ugly (and slowing down web pages) - not forums part, but galleries and so parts

I thought until now Wincustomize Subscribers should get Wincustomize WITHOUT adverts ...


What's going on (or is it still my account which has troubles ??)

Well everything's said in title: i renewed a few days ago (wonder why in fact ... ) my Object Desktop & Wincustomize subscriptions (ending 09/05 & 09/23) & that ugly & silly Impulse software (yep i always considered it as a disaster for users who just don't care of games  ) still don't show the new ending dates.


What's going on with this ??

Apart of that i was not able to renew through Impulse ==> it brings be to a wrong web page ...

Apart the Impulse splashscreen where "Stardock" has been replaced by "GameStop", when clicking on the "?" almost everything is from GamStop Inc. organization ...


What does it EXACTLY mean ?

Since about 2 weeks or so i think, it's impossible to get the weather datas in SysMetrix: any metar code brings a "parsing error"

I've send an email to Xymantix but for now didn't get back any answer.


The datas are coming from and i tried to look at their website searching for any info to help, but as my english isn't efficient enough, didn't find anything ...

Anyone (maybe coders ??) to help ?

Question is simple.

Still didn't find the correct way to upload for any category the preview  

Whatever size i give for the preview it's asking me to define which part of it i want for preview and the biggest possibility still cuts off a part 

Finally i made a 280 x 175 preview, and everything's is weird (preview cuts off and zooming on preview not working ... )


Solution please ?

DeskScapes 3 is not shown as avaible, DesktopX4 is not shown as avaible, MyColors Ankh desktop still bringing "error retieving data" (and maybe some others errors ...)

Ther are two things in Impulse that very boaring

1°)  Should it be possible (as it was with SDC) to indicate the path where shorcuts in All Programs menu will be created (sorry but in my case it's not in  "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Menu Démarrer\Programmes\Stardock" but in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Menu Démarrer\Programmes\Décoration Bureau\Stardock" and it's really anoying to have to chang it manually each time an update or a n...
