Apparently, WB Beta 10.8.9.0 is not supported for WIN 7 Pro (See DS Beta thread #3).
I installed it over WB 10.87, with many resulting problems. With WIN 7 Pro, it kills the functionality of DS 10.02 / 10.03. It first prevents images from being applied, then it will not allow DS to stay open.
I tried to update DS, only to find that it is incompatible with Win 7 Pro.
I uninstalled, then "purged" (most recent purge versions on site) both WB Beta 10.8.9.0 and DS 10.02 / 10.03 then reinstalled both WB 10.87 and DS 10.02 / 10.03.
After multiple restarts and tweaks, DS works fine but WB 10.87 is now only marginally functional. Many skins no longer work properly. Font resizing is flaky - BUT the most annoying problem is that most skins will not allow file/folder name visibility (in Windows Explorer) WHEN RENAMING THE FILE. When the user starts to edit the file/folder name (once the user moves the cursor within the name) the name becomes nearly invisible. Some of the "AERO" based skins do not have this problem (i.e. Clay, Metals, Recycled & Wall).
However, the vast majority of other skins, which worked perfectly before exposing them to WB Beta 10.8.9.0, no longer work.
Is there a way to repair these skins so that they do function properly with WB 10.87?
