"The download button here gives you Version 2.01."

December 23, 2012  |  By Wikijonhenry

 |  Version: Fences 1.01

Pros

Version 1.01 works.

Cons

The download button on this page does not give you Version 1.01 as advertised.
Version 2.01 doesn't work...and after you get stung by the "update", you get to pay 10 bucks to keep it.

Summary

Where can I download version 1.01 so I can get back the working version?

"Fences has made my life better"

September 11, 2012  |  By nfolsom

 |  Version: Fences 1.01

Pros

Easy to setup, works consistently, light-weight.

Cons

No cons to speak of.

Summary

I've used this on Windows XP and Windows 7, 64-bit without any trouble.

Being able to keep an organized desktop is essential to being effective. It's the difference between being able to find and open a client's file easily, and, well, not being able to.

I liked it so much I paid for the pro version even though I don't need anything but the free one.
