will be using this this year what ever the desktop ends up with this will add to it.

RE snowman to big or not wanting it on screen simple way (and in my case thats best)
is to just pick it up with mouse and slid it off side of screen

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow... This still rocks, even three years later. Great work, GreenReaper!

I cannot change any of the settings for the snowflake control in Desktopx 3.x. When I try to run it in build mode, I get the error: There has been a script error in object "GR_Snow_Speed_Combo" Variable is undefined: 'Control'
Line: 8
(not available)
I get the same error message for each of the combo boxes on the control. Do you have any idea what I can do to fix this, I have enough knowledge of vbScript to change whatever might need changed. Thanks in advance, I would like to keep this wonderful program for every year.

Same with me... Some fixes suggested:

If you have XP- downloaded the Windows Script latest version
Update video drivers

I have Vista Ultimate, with WB, and IconX running. I don't know what is wrong, but let me know if those fix your problem!

If you are on Vista and are an Object Desktop user, make sure you have the latest beta downloaded from Stardock Central.

Might also be worth trying to run:
regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\Stardock\Object Desktop\DesktopX\SDCtrls.dll"
from an admin command prompt

Unfortunately with the new compositor it may not work as well on Windows Vista as it has in the past on XP. Under ideal conditions most computers should manage 500 flakes or so - 50 is a sign that there is something slowing it down, most likely in the graphics pipeline.

It was hard to find the wallpaper, because the link given in the description does not work anymore. So if anyone is interested, the wall can be downloaded here: WWW Link

I see, I have Vista Ultimate 64bit, will the beta work for that.
Comment #48 Wednesday, December 19, 2007 4:14 PM
Should work as well as it does on 32-bit. However, as noted above, Vista's display engine (or your video drivers) may not permit it to run at a high level of performance. For what it's worth, my widescreen laptop has 400 in Vista, in DesktopX's hide icon mode.

when i'm using this program, and press the buttoms F9, F10, the snowman hide, and unhide, can i change theese hotkeys to something else? any tip?!
Comment #50 Thursday, March 06, 2008 4:21 PM
Try this: Open regedit, and go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Stardock\DesktopX Add a DWORD value called HotKey (to replace F9) and set it to one of the virtual key constants (you must set it as Hexadecimal). Add another one called HotKey2 to replace F10.

Comment #52 Saturday, December 13, 2008 5:08 AM
When I start it's OK,but after 5-6 seconds it stops and all the flakes dissapear.Can somebody help me ?
Comment #53 Saturday, December 13, 2008 5:39 AM
Usually that's a sign that there's something running in the background that's taken up a load of CPU for long enough to trip the auto-deflake mechanism (I didn't want it lagging people's machines). Check Task Manager.

You must turn off the desktop icons (or use IconX to do the same) so that DesktopX can take full control of it, otherwise it renders each object as a separate layered window, which doesn't work so well. There should be an option for it in the DesktopX configuration.

Thanks! This is exactly what I was looking for ! But my computer is already slow and I'm scared it's gonna crash you think you could make one that doesn't use up so much CPU memory? Thanks!
Comment #55 Thursday, August 27, 2009 11:36 AM
Your best choice there is to use the snowflake theme for DeskScapes, which runs at a lower level and is therefore more CPU-friendly.
