Circle Dock disappears on start up
« on: March 03, 2011, 10:13:03 AM »
I installed Circle Dock yesterday on my system (HP PC XP, AMD64)....worked great until I shut down the computer for the night and turned back on...now it does not show up....all that appears in the Start Up now under Circle Dock are: Uninstall and Wallpaper Auto-Changer......

How do I go about getting this back open and working now?

Thanks,

R Stubbs

Did you, by accident, drag the Circle Dock shortcut onto your desktop, Quick Launch bar or into the Startup folder?

You could find the actual location of the .exe using Windows Explorer and create a new shortcut for it, I guess.

I found the exe. file and got it back up.....I then moved that file to a folder so I could find it again......just would rather is stayed on the screen when rebooted after being off for a while so that would not have to be done each time.

That's something of your Windows configuration. Are you in a company environment where the installed applications, desktop, screensaver, etc. is strictly and unchangeably configured by your "friends" the sysadmins, you love to hate, and other annoyances enforced?

Hm, some overzealous AV package trying to keep your computer free from experiments?

Is your XP of the vanilla 32 bit taste, or is it the rare 64 bit stuff (you mentioned the AMD64 bit), might be there's something itchy with x64 issues of Windows XP, but I can't tell... :-[

Well, I am not a techie so.....the AMD 64 is off a sticker that is on the front of the Pavillion Tower.......also, not sure if maybe a security program issue but kind of doubt that....

Just checked and confirmed AMD anthlon 62X2 so.............

Really don't know why it does this, maybe it will show up tomorrow after I shut down tonight....fingers crossed....

I think i find something to solve your problem.
1/after you download the zip file of the circle dock ,try to use the wizard of the winrar  to extract it to a specified folder.2start the circle dock .3open the task manager after starting and look for circle dock .exe.3click on it then click on folder  location.4Drag the indicated  icon onto the taskbar menu.And you are done .Everytime you  start your computer click on the  pin icon  on  the taskbar and you will find your circle with all its settings.It works just as a virtual keyboard.Is it helpful?
