Just thought I'd throw my hat in the ring and say the lack of thumbnail previews after applying a WindowsBlinds skin is really hurting my flow. I never realized how much I relied on that. I'm sure you all are working on a fix, but in the meantime I'm thinking of unloading WindowsBlinds until I hear word the issue is fixed. I know Microsoft is to blame for switching things, but since we've bought a product that's supposed to skin, I have an expectation for the product to work.
From my experience, programmers at a company work with beta's of and release candidates of new Windows offerings, so they should have a heads up that something Microsoft has done broke their program; and in my opinion work should be done at that time to make sure when a big update occurs, their product works smoothly with Windows. Of course there will be hiccups, but they should be rare, and when they come up they should be resolved quickly. We're getting pretty deep into June after a May release; coupling that with my experiences that software companies test their products and develop them further as betas are released. Even should of being part of Microsoft Developers Network, you can start having access to working with code they will be putting out a year later. Even if you only go in six moths beforehand on their beta, you would have half a year to know what Microsoft is doing and prepare your software to work seamlessly with it. Perhaps you do all this, I don't know. I just find it dumbfounding that if you do, things could still not be working a month after the product is released.
Forgive me if I'm way off. I'm just stating the reason for some of my frustration. I paid for this software, and I need it to work. So does everyone else who bought it.
We're still waiting...
