    • If you're looking for a good replacement to RocketDock then this fits the bill. It's able to launch shortcuts to 64-bit programs and it has a built-in docklet called Flyout menu, which you'll find very similar to Stacks. It's not quite as user-friendly but I'm still finding options for customization. AlmightyHereticApr 2017 • 1 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree

I am still using RocketDock, although it is discontinued. It is lightweight, does not need many system resources and it's nice looking. Is it so difficult to replace it? There are some promising projects on Github but it seems to take time to make them work bugfree.

Me too :-(

In Vista Ultimate 64 works

Only some times when the program start, maybe a icon lost their configuration.

Little prog, more versatile than ObjectDock.

Sorry for my english.

I love Rocket dock, however it hasn't been playing nice with Windows 7 (64 bit). It crashes waaay too much to keep, so I'm shopping around for something else.

Great stuff, especially with the stacks-docklet.
I've been using it for years on XP and Vista (both 32-bit).

It looks like a awesome program, indeed!
However, imho it's become a bit obsolete with Windows 7. I like the "sticky taskbar" feature in W7 a lot!

It is still my favourite. A pity that it's discontinued. Couldn't you consider to make it open source, put it under GPL and publish it on Github? Sometimes it happens that it produces an error on shutdown and prevents Windows from shutting down until the user clicks on "o.k.". There is nothing I would change in the application as such, but I think it would be good to re-compile it under Windows 7.
