Show All Windows not working


Show All Windows (hotkey: Win+F9) does nothing. I currently have 3 instances of VS2010 open on 3 different desktops as well as Google Chrome and a Skype IM window on the first desktop. When hitting Win+F9, the screen darkens (i.e. I see a translucent overlay) but nothing is on the overlay.
Not sure what the intended behaviour is supposed to be, but I assume it's supposed to be similar to the OS X Exposé function.
I'm on Win7 64-bit

Win7 32 bit.
This features not only darkens screen, it locks everything up.
Task Manager is the only thing that works. Have to use it to kill this process.

Very nice tool otherwise.

Yes, this feature is supposed to work like Exposé. I have added several fixes for it in 1.3, so it should now work properly.

I am running Vista sp 2 64 bit. I want to show 2 different desktops on the monitor but when I press Win+F9, nothing at all happens. Even if I wanted 4 it does not work. Only one time, after pressing Win+F9, did I get something that looked like a malformed translucent overlay just in the center of the overall desktop. So the only way that I can see each virtual session is to click on number at a time and only see that particular virtual session.
