Desktop Manager Keeps Closing!!! Help please.

Hi. I recently re-built my PC, as I wished to upgrade to Vista Ultimate 64-bit.


Desktop manager worked perfectly before i did this.


My problem is that now when i install the software from the disc, I try to open the program and it just flashes up on screen for a split second, then dissapears. It is like the program loads then closes instantly!


Does anyone have any ideas what could be the cause of this?


Thanks in advance

Download the latest version of Desktop Manager. You must be using version 4.2.2 or higher for it to work on 64bit Vista.
