Just my thoughts....
Odd stuff Hapnin'
Published on March 15, 2012 By RedneckDude In Object Desktop

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.

Jim, did you uninstall the ones you had installed with Impulse?

I ask because I had a similar problem with Deskscapes3 which I installed via Impulse. Uninstalling it (with Impulse), rebooting and then reinstalling with SDC solved that problem. SDC doesn't 'recognize' the Impulse installs in all cases, I believe.

  Uh, Jim......ObjectDock is NOT part of ObjectDesktop.

Yes, Doc. I uninstalled everything from Impulse before I reinstalled my entire system to an SSD.

Correct, but still available through SDC.

I "think" the problem, as per my screenies, is that SDC sees them both as Object Dock Plus 2.

Yes, the way SDC works, ObjectDock is one unified program, and you're being upgraded to v2.  ObjectDock wasn't really made to have both installed at the same time, so you're kind of going outside of what was intended.

OK, is there, or can there be, a way to tell SDC to ignore certain updates?

Edit: oops.

Carry on.

OD 1.9 is dead.  Let it die.

OD 1.9 is much better than 2.0, IMO. But all I do is skin it, I rarely use it. I guess I'm like some people still clinging to XP....it just feels better.

While Stardock Central does not allow you to do this on it's own, you can get around it by doing this:

1. Go to settings and uncheck this box:

2. Install ObjectDock 1.90 to a specific folder (after download it will bring up the installer where you can select where to install it).

3. Install ObjectDock 2 to a different folder.

4. ???

5. Profit.

That's the only provided way to do this, and I doubt that will change in the future.

You're dang tootin' on that one! OD 1.9 is far superior to 2.0, and a heck of a lot easier to use and configure. I use 1.9 on XP, Vista and Win 7.
