      "Has some annoying problems."

      March 01, 2010   |   By embedcoder

      Version: Enable Virtual Desktop 3.0.1

      Pros

      Here is what is still good:
      1. Supports multiple monitors.
      2. Plenty of configuration options.
      3. Mostly it works and does not cause any system crashes.

      Cons

      1. Screen saver causes open windows to collect to current window.
      2. Most Java apps freeze-up when move to window on another display.
      3. Scarce releases & you get no support.
      4. Some apps have child windows open in other desktop.

      Summary

      This used to be the best virtual window manager that I could find but seems to have been neglected for the past several years.

      I have used the enable virtual desktop manager for over 10 years but now am forced to switch to another desktop manager. I have put up with screens all collecting to one screen when screen saver came on but having Java apps freeze up and require restarting was too much. I submitted both problems to the company along with all the information they want included but never heard anything back. The FAQs and tips did not mention either problem. Their FAQ also mentions a problem with Vista and says "We are working on fixing this." Vista has been released since Jan 2007 so its not likely they are really working on a fix.
