Great program! Quite whining about OpenCandy, it's not used after installation, just to display an ad during setup. Clueless people downrating this program.

@humbleuser: using on Win7-x64 for a couple of months and I never had any issues with it or BSODs! Only bsod I had were due to McAfee, once I investigated and isolated that $hit, all stable as a rock on sand!
Why would you rate a program low while you are NOT sure if this one it is really the culprit for your system bsod!?!

At least 5 stars here for a great free program!

best multi desktop software i have used.
12mb mem use with 2 desktops.
very stable on winxp.
the automatic rules options are a life saver.
10 stars

Program appeared to be very good but after a few hours BSOD on Windows 7 Ultimate X64. I never get BSODs and monitor stability closely so I suspect Dexpot but cannot be sure. It's now off and I've been stable for over 24 hours again. 2 stars for worry factor...

Absolutely the best virtual desktop manager. Even better than Desktops from Sysinternals. Highly recommended!!

@anomoly: the solution is to clone the problematic windows on desired (all) desktops: right click on the Dexpot tray icon -> Desktop rules -> add a new rule for sharp widgets windows and then in the "Acction Tab" make sure you have "Copy" & "To all desktops".
Hope it solves the issue.

The issue is indeed that is not doing this automatically, but at least it give the option to have it. On my computer, it is configured like this for RocketLaunch tollbar.

Can't really rate it as it does not work within sharp enviro shell. VirtuaWin does however, and keeps both my bottom and top bars in place and related aps as well. Dexpot when switching gives me a blank screen with wallpaper. I couldn't even right-click the desktop to access my menu.
Apparently it depends on explorer.exe running whereas virtuawin handles the sharpe shell flawlessly.

I am presently running dexpot with three virtual desktops, one for everything i use on my primary box (winxp), a second for another box (win2k3) on which i'm running a remote vnc session, a form of remote desktop, and a third which is another remote desktop session (with vnc) for a headless slackware box.

The end result being a seamless, (pseudo-)lagless swapping between three different computers, with three different OS's, from a central location.
