Not too long ago I stumbled upon a page where I could reset/deactivate products that I've activated.

I can no longer find that. Could someone point me in the right direction?

I'm trying to use Start8tweak to unload Start8 which was the prescribed method in the past.

Now, when you try to launch it, it just opens http://www.stardock.com/products/start8/update.asp . 

I'm already running the latest version (1.47).

Using the new method of downloading and installing your apps.

DesktopX Pro 3 is SUPPOSED to be v 3.50.018, however the actual file downloaded is 4.00.017. Please fix this as I refuse to use that worthless version.

Thanks

At work I run Vista Business x64 (also a 4GB RAM Machine) and absolutely cannot get DesktopX to even say hello.

If they don't work, when will they?

A couple of years ago, my company purchased the $499 version of DX, at that time dubbed Desktop X Professional. My download link points to DesktopX_310_pro.exe.

Not that this is a huge deal or anything but it is extremely annoying when installing OD items. If you check the box to install future items to this INCORRECT location you are in for great joy.
