Just my thoughts....
Why is this?
Published on December 12, 2016 By RedneckDude In Object Desktop

I have 3 Stardock accounts. Under 3 different emails. 3 seperate Object Desktop subscriptions.

 

Why are my apps asking for activation when they were already activated and running fine for months?

 

Also, on one rig, all of a sudden, WindowBlinds reports that it isn't correctly installed. It's been running fine for months.

 

Please fix this, Stardock.

Dave, sign in to your account, go to the downloads page, at the end of your Obj. Desktop serial key there is a link to manage.

Thanks Jim.

I was noticing this as well.

Figured there was a problem since I purchased a new computer, installed the OD, then had to return it and get a whole new machine all within 2 days.

 

I didn't realize we could get Stardock support here on Wincustomize.  Thought  they were two separate entities.  Nice to know for the future.

I am having to re-activate all programs when i open them and then they will not take the activation code. I have purchased object Desktop and still have 6mnths left on subscription. Why?

If you look at the top of the forums you will see: Stardock Closed for the Holidays (Read More) link ...

This has been resolved for me. It hasn't happened anymore.

Hello , I just purchased object desktop.

After two days the activation window pops up after my system reboots.Although it is  is February 2017 , I have seen posts with this sort of problem dating back to 2014 - This should not be a problem anymore. If I activate too many times will my programs stop working? 

However, I just saw your advice above: "Are you using WB 10 with SKS 8?"

I'll check that solution out to see if that fixes the activation glitch. I'll let you know.

Neil is a Stardock software developer who primarily works on Windowblinds. He contributes generously to these forums when he spots things he can help with, but fixing technical issues with activation would normally fall to Stardock Support.

The activation code is permanent and activation should always survive a reboot.  If the WB10/SKS8 advice fails to get it fixed, SD will get you squared away but it will help them to submit a support ticket so they can sort out your specific issue (and avoid it in the future).

Since yesterday, after I uninstalled WB-8 then installed WB-10 to work with my Skin Studio 10, there has been no more activation pop-ups, everything seems to be stable. As well, window blinds 10 is much more well made than WB8,
 
thank you for your support
