I too have this problem and emailed the author. He mentioned he knew about this problem and was working on the new version to fix it, but it was last year reply. Seems like there is no any news or update from him in the official site until now, I guess we can just forget about this software, unfortunately.
thx for your reply, hope the new vision will come soon...

I love this app!... I'm using it in conjunction with Rocket Dock. Pretty darn slick!



I've seen some complaining about it NOT sorting alphebetically, but I'd actual like to see a way to order the menu fly-outs to my liking, out of alphebetical order. For instance, I have a 7Stack for my local drives, as well as my HTPC's networked media drives.



It would be nice to be able to order these so that my System, Data and Scratch drives were first, then the others decending to my personal preference...

Anyone out there aware of a way to do this?

Love this application, and I'm pretty bummed that it hasn't been updated in over a year.

Primarily because of a bug that I sometimes get when using it. Sometimes it will just stop working until I restart my computer. I will click the task bar icon but nothing ever launches. The process is still running, it's just not doing anything. I think the problem is tied with aero in some way, but I'm not entirely sure. It only seems to happen after exiting some video games. (The games I noticed trigger it either disable desktop composition or use lower resolutions)

It would just be nice to see a fix to this bug, or perhaps a temporary solution that doesn't involve restarting my PC every time I exit one of the above mentioned games.

This one is similar and easy to configure. Plus it doesn't hang like 7stacks. It uses the same libraries as RocketDock stacks:

Chris'n'Soft » StandaloneStack

I've been using it I think at least 6 months now on both W7 32 bit and Vista64. Works fine.
The only thing on Windows 7 is sometimes I get the "paper icon" instead of the program's icon. I think it's a W7 bug. Instead of messing with it I just make a quickie custom icon for the program and change icon to it. From then on it seems to work with that app.

I don't really like it. :/
The stacking seems too clunky, the fan looks god awful, and the grid just didn't feel right. I'd like to be able to have 2 columns after it gets a certain amount of icons or something.

It does what I want, but I'm just more accustomed to 7stacks. I like how 7stacks is integrated into Aero--making the color match my taskbar. It also just feels smoother somehow, I don't know.

Try softpedia. Maybe there's something else out there.

btw you can set it to use a grid rather than a stack

7stacks just hangs too often for me to continue using it

Like the poster back a few...

I also find that at times the programs don't run after clicking on the icons. It seems to affect particular ones...sometimes they work, sometimes they don't. Frustrating, and makes me wonder if I should be looking at other options...

Stops working soon after installation.

Stops working soon after installation. It works when I click on it as far as expanding the menu (or grid or stack or whatever), but the old thing where you right click for options doesn't work. Which I could live without, if it weren't for the following:

Suddenly (every time) it no longer works, it just hangs there with a spinning cursor after i click.
I've played around with it for two days now and can't seem to keep it working.
