Got it. So far so good. Nice and simple.

Tells me that there are updates for my apps, when there are none.

I'm guessing in reality, it's pointing out the apps not installed. but they aren't even compatible with my system.

I guess My Downloads is still the way to get my apps.

That's what I do. Everything you ever bought is there. What could be easier? I'm not gonna bother with Desktop Manager unless they make it the only option. I think that would be a mistake. Why mess with what's working?

What apps RND?  Can you post a screenshot?

Sean, it's the system tray icon that informs me of updates.  Actually, I right click the icon and it says "view updates". 

 

I was thinking it gave me a notification yesterday as well, but I just started a new job after 15 years of retirement, so I am a bit tired, memory may be fuzzy.

I'm running Windows 10.

Where is it telling you that you have updates, RND?

While Theme manager is debatable, all the apps in the list are compatible with Win10 RND.

Ok, my bad. I thought Launch was a Windows 8 only app. Didn't know Keyboard Launchpad was good on 10.

 

The system tray icon tells me every day that there are updates, yet there aren't any.  The next time it happens (tomorrow, I guess) I'll post a screenshot.

@Sean

 

Today, the tray icon showed up, on it's own.  If I right click it, I get View Updates, and Exit.

Again today, there's the icon, but there are no updates.  Uninstall time, I guess.  ODM still buggy.

Oddly, it seems to be a double install....

Oh my. I've been off since December 2018 and I'm starting a job this coming Wednesday. The job requires me to be physically fit, somewhat. Anyway it's too bad when old guys have to keep working. Have to pay for my wife's health care somehow so I work.

I might be missing something, but how do you get the icon on the system tray or does it just show when you get an update?

Are all your Stardock apps installed in their default location?

Yes, Sean. I have never moved any applications, from any vendor, from the original directories. Other than Steam games.
