Dude I love your work. It just works and looks great. I use it on Windows 7 now that I'm back on it from testing out 8.

Definitely a must have launcher application for Windows that's simple to use and elegantly developed. It redefines how you launch applications on Windows.

Awesome app!

One feedback though: It would be great if the software remember the path as you are adding new folders. Now, each time I go to "Add FoldeR" I have to start drilling down from the beginning.

Other than that, thanks a lot and looking forward for updates.

Clicking on a folder I have added earlier does nothing now.

The folder used to open normally. Even adding a new folder and trying to open it does nothing now.

What should I do? I tried restarting the PC but no luck.

Suggestion/request. Shortcut 'key" or click to enable and disable tooltips or "captions".

And ability to "throw" the icons to the other page

EDIT----Keeps freezing nonstop. Is that why there is a "reload" button? It eloads fine until the first attempt to do anything and then freezes again. Here are settings in ini

[Root]
AutoStart=0
AutoCheckNewVersion=0
pageMargins.top=82
AutoArrangeIcons=0
FullAppSilenceMode=0
AutoCloseUpFolderAfterClick=1
EnableHotkey_F12=0
EnableHotkey_DoubleClickCtrl=1
ShowConfirmWhenDeleteShortcut=0
isDeskMode=1
pageMargins.left=91
itemCountEveryRow=6
CustomIconSize=57
IconSize=57
IconVertSpace=52

You can try to right click this folder shortcut and select "Shortcut Setting", and check the shortcut folder path.

The path is correct. I am unable to launch any folder I added/add to Xlaunchpad. I re-installed and the problem is still there.

Do I need to re-install, delete my settings, and then start from scratch or can you provide a solution?

Hi, my question is for XLaunchpad. It keeps freezing. I posted my ini settings for xlaunch. Is there something in the configuration that would cause it to keep freezing? (I initially could not get xlaunch to integrate with Splinter and then started using XWidget. but then I figured out XLaunchpad integration and so wish to use it)
