    "Won't work"

    August 23, 2012  |   By chaoticspyder

    Version: DeskScapes 8 3.50

    Pros

    There is nothing

    Cons

    Installed and it gives me a notice that the trial version I am trying to install is out of date. Too bad, looks awesome.

    Summary



    Updated on Sep 1, 2012

    Doesn't work. I download it from the link and install. Upon running I get notified that I need the latest version and it gives me a link. The link takes me to the same version I had. Too bad, looks awesome.

    "Good Product"

    June 9, 2012  |   By donflip29

    Version: DeskScapes 8 3.50

    Pros

    A live wallpaper is cool to look at. Huge database of users that upload new images to the site.

    Cons

    It would be better if the wallpapers had an option to play sound with the wallpapers. The price should be about half of what their asking. I don't see a need to pay $20.00 for something that ill glance at on occasion. That's what a screensaver is for. And it can be a distraction sometimes or just to much. If they had more static wallpapers with very little movement I would have given this five stars; oh and the price issue as well.

    Summary

    For all complaints about missing icons, task bars, docks, folders etc., after installing; can be fixed easily. After initial installation you MUST restart your computer. After that everything should be fine. Some animated wallpapers use more ram than others. So instead of just panicking and uninstalling it, restart your computer, if that doesn't fix it then go ahead. If you have slow system then choose a wallpaper that requires the least resources. On their website they tell you the system requirements for each dreamscape wallpaper.

    "Nifty but Does Not Play Nice with Other Apps"

    January 31, 2012  |   By stellarfirefly

    Version: DeskScapes 8 3.50

    Pros

    - One of the slickest wallpaper animators on the market today.

    - Good user following, provides a good selection for customizations.

    - Very affordable, at only US$20.

    Cons

    - Upon installation, all but *3* of my taskbar icons no longer displayed! I lost direct access to essentials such as Steam, Dropbox, WD Smartware, OpenOffice Quickstart, etc. Uninstall alone does not restore them; must then restart Windows. I confirmed that it was DeskScapes that is causing this problem by against reinstalling it, and watching my taskbar icons disappear again.

    - Also removed access to RocketDock after it autohides. I can no longer bring it back forward, until I uninstalled DeskScapes.

    Summary

    Not sure if it's a bug in just the current version, an incompatibility, or just a limitation of the engine that it has to take over certain resources in order to do its thing. But losing access to so much else is just not acceptable for what essentially is just nifty flair and eye candy. (I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, if that makes a difference.) All other of my apps, even my customization ones (RocketDock, Rainmeter, etc.) play nice together. If only DeskScapes played nice as well, then I would have bought it immediately after seeing what it was capable of.

    "Overloaded my processor."

    December 18, 2011  |   By prgrmr1

    Version: DeskScapes 8 3.50

    Pros

    It's a nice animated desktop program, with good graphics.

    Cons

    Overloads the processor. I have an HP Quad-core processor with 6 Gigs of memory running Windows 7 65bit and it overload only (1) of (4) Cores, but still slowed down. the system.

    "out of the world experience"

    December 12, 2011  |   By leopardroy999

    Version: DeskScapes 8 3.50

    Pros

    an actual video for your background/wallpaper is too good to be true. But for once it is true.

    Cons

    beside .dream the only format is WMV. hope we could use MP4 too.

    Summary

    buy the paid version. at $20 (approx) it is a throwaway price.
