Another Start Menu Question

Alan Wade's profile on WallpaperFusion.com
I use WindowBlinds to skin my system, as you can see from the attached pics the second screen does not render properly.
Can this be fixed?

We're currently in contact with the WindowBlinds team to see if we can resolve the compatibility issues between DisplayFusion and WindowBlinds. With any luck we'll have it fixed up for the next major version.

Thanks!

Yes, we have made some progress. The Start Menu should render correctly with Beta 10, can you give it a try?

Could you provide the name and if possible the download link for that WindowBlinds skin? I'd like to test it here and check some things out.

Thanks!

Yeah, same here. Any skin goes a bit off. Although it's much better then before. So it improved enormously, just that little detail.

Just wanted to post an update on this. We're still working with the WindowBlinds developers to see if we can work out some compatibility between our two products. I'll be sure to post an update as soon as I have one.

Thanks!

Just wanted to follow-up, the Start menu should now be skinned correctly with WindowBlinds themes in 3.4.1 Beta 4.

The latest beta version can be downloaded here: http://www.displayfusion.com/Download/Beta/

Thanks!

Not working for me unfortunately but nice to know you guys do try to fix things. Look at my screenshots and you will see what I mean.

I am using WindowBlinds 7.3 (build 309 - Windows 7 Edition) - 64 bit OS you too? It really works fine here. Exact copy of the original one, bar the startbutton. That isn't skinned for some reason but that's so minor.

I am using the same version as you and my OS is 64bit Win7. It is just the taskbar on the second monitor that wont display properly form me now.

Here you can see it better with a lighter skin, not such a minor thing is it.

Weird. here it's 100% OK. Taskbar, taskbar icon's, peek, Startmenu, Startmenu background. All except the Startbutton Icon.

Have you tried other blinds? Some blinds are badly constructed. (here is hoping it's not your own build

@AWWade: Can you try setting the DF taskbar to "Button Style > Icons and Text" and see if that helps clear this up?

As you can see from the screenshots if I select Icons and Text then the taskbar displays correctly, when I have icons only then the taskbar becomes nearly transparent.

My apologies, you're right. This is a known issue between WB and DF, and we are working with the WB developer to get this resolved as quickly as possible.

Awwade, You know what's the difference between us? Just realized now getting very old. My taskbars are fully transparent.

It works perfectly in the latest beta (beta 5).
Thanks for all your hard work!!
