Help with stack docklets

Hi all, I have just installed stack docklet for rocket dock but just would like to know if there is a way to get the stacks to come up in a grid instead of a list any ideas?

Many thanks

Then it wouldn't be a 'stack', now would it?

With Object Dock right click on the stack icon on the dock click on properties
& check for some options
Hope that helps

Rocketdocket and Stacks Docklet 2

I've used rocketdocket for a long time, both on a 32 and 64 bit windows laptops; works great. Installed Stacks Docklet 2 on both laptops a few days ago, and the 32 bit laptop works absolutely perfectly. On the 64 bit laptop, I find that a few applications off the stacks docklet 2 will not run, although most will...I'm scratching my head trying to figure out why certain ones will run and others don't (they all run fine on my 32 bit laptop using Stacks Docklet 2). These are NOT 64 bit applications btw, so that's not the issue.

Any idea why certain applications will not run and others will under Stacks Docklet 2 and again, only experiencing that problem on the 64 bit laptop.

Thanks!!!!!

PS... the applications that don't run off the Stacks Docklets 2, DO run just fine off the regular rocketdocket bar...

I use objectdock with Stack Docklet & some times it works & some times it does not Then I tried 7Stacks Alastria Software, makers of great software including 7stacks, Speedy Shopper, and Popup Calendar you can make a shortcut on your desktop then drag it to your dock or taskbar & works great.

7Stacks looks terrible, the glass is badly done.
Standalone stacks is much nicer imho.

Stack Docklets/RocketDock PROBLEM

Hello everyone,

Ive read the post here in a desperate search to find a similar problem to mine..if not the same exact problem to no avail. Its very simple but for some reason theres hardly any information on this.

MY SITUATION:

im running win 7 ultimate x64, and ive installed rocketdock(works FINE)..i also installed stacks docklet (latest version) which installed fine and functions well. HERE IS WHERE THE PROB STARTS...when i choose my folders i want to have "stacked" in rocketdock, stackdocklet stacks them correctly only to have no icons for the applications within the folder it is stacking. For example...ill go into icon settings, choose folder, and ill find my utorrent folder with the utorrent.exe in it. When i hover over this and click stacks docklet...the stacks show up but the utorrent icon is just a blank white sheet of paper.

I have learned that win 7 does not support png icons...which is what rocketdock/stacks docklet is all about (seems like)... so im wondering if this is the root of the problem? Does stacks docklet even support ico files? I just want my application icons to show when the stacks pop up...intsead of blank white sheets of paper.

Has anyone installed stacks docklet on win7 x64for rocketdock and not had this problem with their icons?

PLEASE HELP

thanks alot BONGO for confirming that win 7 x64 lack of support for .png icons is not the problem. That helps a ton...ive been trying to solve this for the last few days.

If anyone has any answers..it would be great.

Thanks again
