Dock that works for Win 7 64 bit?

Hi
I'm running Object Dock, but there's a problem with window focus not working properly in Windows when the program is running (goes away when I close Object Dock).

Does anyone have a suggestion for some free dock software that will run properly under Win 7 64 bit?

Thanks a heap.

Geoff

I just installed Object Dock Free on my Win 7 x64 desktop and it looks great just as it does on my Vista computer. The only problem I am having is that it refuses to open any 64 bit programs that are installed in the Programs Folder and it will only open 32 bit programs installed in the Program Files (x86) Folder. Every time I try to open a 64 bit program I get this message...



It seems as though Object Dock is assuming that all programs are located in C:\Program File (x86). Is there some kind of a hack to get Object Dock Free to open x64 programs under Win 7 x64? Is Object Dock Plus shareware capable of opening x64 programs under Win 7 x64?

Hi Maxx

Just edit the shortcut location.Right click on the icon on the dock and go to edit shortcut.Under link edit the location by removing the (x86) part.It will now find the 64 bit program in program files rather than program files(x86).

I have 64bit programs on my dock and all run fine using this method

Danny- I finally got my Win 7 x64 desktop back from the shop loaded up with one of the new 25nm 120 GB Intel 320 SSD's and as much of a thrill as it was to see the computer benchmark speeds 3X as fast as before and boot in 14.5 seconds it was you who made my day by showing me how to get 100% full use out of the newly installed Object Dock.

Thanks; Object Doc...

External Dock
Any body have suggestions on an external dock. Self powered with a sata connection. The ones I have been buying are lasting less than a year. If you box it up and ship it back, you have almost the price of a new one. I want one that the disk is easily unplugged and a different disk can be inserted.
