Start Menu Shadow Residue Bug
« on: May 17, 2010, 04:17:09 AM »
Hi,
I have the screen remnant shadow problem when using the centre button for the start menu.
I'm using Vista 64bit service pack 2
Circle Dock 1.5.6.30
Net Framework v2.0.50727 - 64

Greetings ZigZag  :D
Welcome to donationcoder.com. Home to Circle Dock and so much more  :Thmbsup:

I am looking at the image, and I am seeing what your are seeing, but I must admit to being stumped. This is teh first I have seen of this.

Does this happen with any icon or Background, or just the ones shown in your supplied image.

Let em know  :tellme:

Hi,
It happens with any icon or background. I've just tried a clean uninstall (deleting all the circle dock registry keys and folders in AppData etc) and then re-installing but it's still the same  :(

Damn....

We will have to get Markham in here to take a look at this to be sure.
Hopefully he will be around later.

I apologize that I am not more help immediately  :-[

Have faith friend, we will get you ironed out and working like a champ  :Thmbsup:

The problem with the Start Menu leaving an outline of its shadow is well-documented. This only affects Vista and the work around is to disable menu shadows in your Display Preferences (Control Panel).

For some inexplicable reason, neither the help browser nor any of the help files are being installed on 64-bit OSes. I need to investigate why this should be so.

They do install correctly on my Win7x64.
Well...kind of...both CDWB.exe and Help folder have the hidden attribute.
But the problem is that I can't use the help because I get an error on launch:
I am a 3D body trapping a single dimension soul.
