Wallpaper goes Black in Full Screen Preview

Postby pepin » 09.06.2012 19:34:24

I've been using Dexpot 1.5 and recently upgrading to trying the Beta for 1.6. I really like the new features, however there is an issue I've run into.

When first installed, everything was fine, but the next time I started my computer (the next morning) there was a problem when using "Windows Catalogue" or "Full Screen Preview". When entering those modes, instead of showing my wallpaper like it should, it shows just a black screen. I've attached two images showing this. I can still use the functions, but it just has a black wallpaper (which is extra annoying in full screen preview).

I was using "Bing Desktop" at the time, which updates your wallpaper daily to be the Bing image of the day. Since it was the next day after the wallpaper switched, I originally thought it could have something to do with having your wallpaper attached to an RSS feed. However, I switched to a fixed wallpaper and restarted, same effect.

Other information:
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium
Dexpot build: 1.5.99 Build 2003
Plug-in's Used: DexControl, Dexgrid, MouseEvents, Taskbar Pager

I did some searching and didn't find anything matching my description. If I missed a thread on it somewhere, I apologize. If you need more information on what settings etc. I am using, just ask.

Thanks for the help.

Did you disable the full-screen preview by accident? Settings > Plugins and Extras > Debug.

After checking, I did in fact have full screen preview disabled. Unchecked, restarted Dexpot and now things look fine. Thanks for the help, I feel slightly embarrassed at how simple that was. There are just so many options that a single check mark got lost.

Thanks again.
