So, we are now into May so I thought I'd ask if you've had any chance to work on the W10 compatibility issues, Sebastian?

Thanks.

Hi Sebastian,
I am having the same issue as this post: Start Menu stops functioning
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=6228

i was trying to use the workaround described in the post but it's not very clear to me.
can you elaborate if this workaround is actually working? and how do i implement it?

just put the file (viewtopic.php?f=12&t=6078#p36816) into the Dexpot main directory and restart.

Recently updated to Windows 10 and soon afterwards the Anniversary Update, but I still need Dexpot as the virtual desktop facilities offered by W10 is far too limited.
But Dexpot has problems with W10: The "Assign Applications" no longer works as applications show up in ALL desktops event though I have assigned them to a specific desktop.
I have tried to Remove the settings in AssignApplications window and then Add then again, but no change.
Running latest version of Dexpot (1.6.14, build 2439) and set to run as administrator.
Any advice?

I just installed Windows 10 on my laptop. What is the highlight of using Dexpot?

Maybe he's talking about Windows 10 prefetch issue ?

Works great with my Windows 10. :lol: Running 3 desktops, rules, etc. Everything is working great. GREAT job to the author. Would like to see a 64 bit compilation also.

Hi,

Which version are you using ?
I have the latest download, dexpot_1614_r2439.exe (4.66 MB) from Last update: September 4th 2014
And this fails to install on Windows 10 ...

Cannot find a later version to download...

Regards, Martin

Hello,

I have used your software in Win10 for a while now - up until recently it worked great.

I will try to re-install, but I'm worried there is a bigger issue. Basically switching desktops has become quite slow and cumbersome - in fact the software suite as a whole seems to have slowed down significantly.

The software seems to work, just everything is slow. I close dexpot from system tray, and computer immediately speeds back up (but I no longer have virtual desktops)...

Anyone else experiencing anything similar? Was there a recent update to Win10 that broke it?

Edit - disregard, at least for now the problem was resolved by reinstalling...
