I could not get Windowblinds 10 to work on my Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit laptop. I uninstalled WindowBlinds 7 and installed Windowblinds 10. It did install but I could not apply a skin, the UI would hang for about 40 seconds why trying to apply the skin but no change would take place. I checked the about section and it said that Windowblinds was installed properly but windows desktop manager service was not started. I checked services and it was running and it was set to start automatically.
I uninstalled again using Revo Uninstaller Pro and reinstalled Windowblinds with the same result. I uninstalled 10 and went back to Windowblinds 7 and it works fine. I am actually in the minority and prefer the look of the old UI. The only reason I tried to upgrade was for the new skins. I made sure to grab those before I uninstalled Windowblinds 10.
I have the same laptop. I uninstalled WB8, rebooted, ran ccleaner, installed WB 10, rebooted and everything works. Also did this with SkinStudio.
