That is too bad, although I started using AIMP some time ago.

"Object Desktop Elite users are users who have active subscriptions to ObjectDesktop.net past January 1, 2009."

How that ? Did I miss something ? Is there a 2 Year subscription ? Or is it a typo ?

I hope we don't have to wait another 4 months to have these fixed :

1. RC prevents system from logging off. Logoff is only possible when quitting RC first.
2. RC is marked as non responding by windows at shutdown, which leads to a messesage that it could not be ended properly at shutdown and that leads to
3. Still loosing menus occasionally, especially after 2.

System : XP Pro SP2 German with latest updates.

Okay, 1st most obvious thing : Cursor 'Busy' when using the menu all the time. Other than that I seem to have no menu losses anymore, but I will watch that closely.

Jeff, if I remember right with the menu-builder in old pre 1.0 builds it was possible to make a new entry right before the marked one. Since several builds a new entry always goes to the very end of the menu, which is quite unpractical. is there a chance to get that 'insert' feature back ?

The situation arround RightClick becomes more and more frustrating as You can see from some posts here and in the
newsgroups. Aside from bugs not being fixed (or not made available, as the 'losing menus' bug was being solved in OCTOBER last year regarding to Jeff) the lack of reaction by any of the Stardock officials is very disgusting.

What is totally ignored or overseen is the fact, that RightClick is the only chance for foreign customers running DesktopX and/or IconX to have a desktop co...

Some of the registered OD and TD components are showing as "Demo", which is clearly untrue.

I don't know if it is the Apogee set or newest IP causing this, but after I applied Apogee I get a crash of IconX.

Problem signature :

AppName: iconx.exe AppVer: 0.0.0.0 ModName: directgui.dll
ModVer: 2.0.0.0 Offset: 00008b04

Tried on 2 XP Pro SP2 machines now.

Not sure if it is the new beta or a skin error in Aura :

After some time, the startbutton looks like this on mouseover :



Buttons in Explorer (the are alright in apps) ;

This is what happened to me after a fresh install of RightClick and 1st config. I really can't see any options for horicentral menus.

Although it has some remarkable problems like disappearing menus and even whole configs we haven't seen an update since February. Error reports in the newsgroups seem to be ignored. Is it born dead from the beginning ? I just would like to know as it has become my 4th most used OD app.

...still no chance to save the configuration. I am disappointed, especially with the background of having lost 1/3 of my heavily customized menu yesterday (on boot) after running for several days out of nowhere. I know, it was Beta, but many people have had the same desire. And I still don't get the reason why I can't simply copy my RC configurations from one machine to the other...

As I think it is a great app, here are some wishes I would have for the release of 1.0 :

- Clickable 'Save theme' button
- Drag and Drop for new shortcuts (i.e. from startmenu or explorer)
- movable shortcuts (i.e. to another op-up menu)
- adjustable folder-depth for popup-menus like 'My Computer'
- icons for pop-up menus would be great also
