Just my thoughts....
Won't work on XP or Vista
Published on May 17, 2014 By RedneckDude In Object Desktop

Hey guys. I can't get Theme Manager to load anything other than Aero Midnight on XP or Vista.

 

I also can't get MyColors to install on either.

 

What's up?

 

I realize that XP is no longer supported, but these programs should work on XP. I hate that I bought a bunch of MyColors themes and can't use them.

 

When I try to install MyColors, it acts like it's installing, until I see the "downloading MyColors" screen, then the window closes, no error, nothing.

 

Same on Vista.

 

I have tried the standalone MyColors and installing a MyColors theme. No go.

I did not say you can format encrypted/pixelled Mycolors themes to ThemeManager suites;that is your comprehension,not mine

As for theme manager format,this is convenient that you can simply make your own by edit the .ini file or via app,it's not rocky scientist's stuff to be quite honest.

Could someone from Stardock please tell me why I can't install MyColors on an XP rig? Or at least tell me how to convert my MC themes to TM suites so I can use them?

Or even how I can use the WindowBlinds portion of the MC themes?

 

I totally understand this may not happen until Monday.

It may have something to do with the version of windowblinds, that you  are using, if you have it installed. You might need a older version. Just an idea, because it happened to me.

Running WB 7.4. What are you running, and are you using MyColors?

 

I can see how the wrong version of WindowBlinds could make MyColors not work correctly, but for me, MyColors won't even install. Not sure WindowBlinds could cause that.

Again,that's your comprehension;those 2 sentences doesn't equal the same meanings/result. Now,it's getting pointless when someone kept prejudice on his own other than facing the music. Weirdly,I have some encrypted Mycolors themes/WBA format (Think Green,Nickelodeon.......) which managed to work on Windowblinds without Mycolors app....................

I too, have a few, like Camouflage, and Halloween. But most don't. It would be awesome to be able to use what I paid for.

 

Would also be awesome to get someone from Stardock to make a reply of any kind on this thread.

I tried to reinstall MyColors on my Vista rig, but it never did anything, so I don't know what's going on.

Runs to the download stage, then just stops and disappears.

So, it's my guess that it needs to download something that is no longer there. Apparently, Stardock has removed the downloads/server where MyColors downloads from.

 

Stardock may as well remove all the MyColors themes from my downloads page, since they can't access what they're supposed to download.

I have raised this internally to see if it can be easily fixed.

Thank you, Neil!

OK, dunno if you did something, Neil, but I was finally able to install MyColors both on XP and Vista successfully. But MC wouldn't install all my skins. Kept saying download failed. The only one that installed was the original one I installed with. MC asks if I wanted to queue the others, I chose yes, but they all failed.

 

However, I was able to manually install each one with the downloaded installers I have archived, (each one effectively reinstalling MyColors Theme Manager)  and use the serials from my downloads page to activate.

 

All is well.

All is not well for those of us who do not have archives.We paid for these items so not getting access is unacceptable.

blazz, they should be listed and downloadable from the Stardock Store when you login, under My Downloads.

So if MyColors is no longer supported, why are these themes still available to buy:

All of those themes require Object Desktop which is fully supported.  They all work.  Dragon is my favorite.
