Windows 7: Rocketdock help needed

26 Mar 2010   #11


I used latest rocketdock with win7x64 and have no issues.

However, when I turn off areo or simple select the Classic theme ( all nonsense off), Rocketdock does not run as smooth. By smooth I mean that the animations are not as smooth, almost stutters to some extent. Turn areo back on and it runs perfect.

Windows 7 32 bit

I have experienced something similar using StandAloneStack 2. It uses the same stack library as RocketDock stacks. On Vista 64 all the icons are fine. On W7 32 bit, most of the stacks have at least one with the "paper icon" syndrome. I can change icons and sometimes that will fix the particular program, but usually another program in the stack will then have its icon go "paper" on me. It's a shame because other than that the stacks work fine.

Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit (6.1, Build 7600)

i suggest update permissions to the rocketdock folder and include the subfolders and files

start > all programs > right click on rocketdock folder > security tab > advanced > permission tab > change permission > edit > allow full control to this user > apply to: "this folder, subfolder and files"

if you have a lot of users: do this to all users

hope this helps, :)

PS: you might need to do this for any new users you created or the problem would re uccur

I make my own icons (must be .png) and put them into the Rocket Dock icon folder at C:\Program Files\RocketDock\Icons. Then you can right click on the dock icon and go to Icon Settings, highlight your icon and click OK.
