Per-Desktop Wallpapers Broken (V 1.1)


After upgrading from 1.0 to 1.1 I have found that the per-desktop option isn't working anymore. I have restarted the program multiple times with the same result. I would like to see this issue fixed since different backgrounds can help you keep track of which virtual desktop you are using!
Kudos for the quick 1.1 release addressing various user-reported issues just days after 1.0 was released!

Sorry about introducing this into 1.1 when it was supposed to be a bug-fix release :-) It was caused by a small optimization I made without remembering to make an "is the thread running" check. It's fixed in the next release, which should be out shortly.

I am using release 1.2 and the problem described above is still happening.

I have the same problem. Just upgraded from 1.0 I believe to 2.1.4277.41337 -- running XP latest with two screens.

This items needs to be reopened for V-2.1.4..... Sorry, the problem has come back.

I'm in the process of investigating this again. Thanks for the heads up.

Is it possible that you have unusual wallpaper settings? Perhaps you are running a slideshow or something like that? Also, are you running XP, Vista, or 7?

I can't say for the others, but for me I don't believe I'm running anything unusual. No slideshow software. I basically have 4 BMP files that I assign to each of the desktops using the windows Desktop/Background dialog. I'm using WindowsXP. I'm happy to try some things out if it helps. Note I have logged this as Issue 16965 as well. I have more info there too.
