Help thanks to bezisdabest:

Stacks gone after restart? Here's the solution folks:

Log in as admin to have the administrative rights.

1. Navigate to the RocketDock folder under program files...C/Program Files/RocketDock.

2. Right click on the RocketDock folder, and select properties, click the security tab at the top.

3. You should see a list of groups and user names of your pc, click edit...

4. Click on your user name..should be called "Users(your name)"

5. Check the box underneath to give yourself "Full Control", click Ok, Ok..

6. Done, your user account now has full permission to this folder...try it close the application or restart and you settings should be saved.

Okay, so I'm not a slouch after all (I was thinking I was)! Anyway, yeah!! (Hi Five) So it works pretty good. It's a redirect - how the hell did you figure it out? I tried everything. But thanks for the tip - it s pure GOLD.

I'm not getting this part about a 'Symbolic Link' and I am not a slouch when it comes to Windows - I've never heard about such a link. How is it implemented? Do I create a shortcut that incorporates the command line: [ mklink /d "c:\Program Files (x64)" "c:\Program Files" ] Do I have to rename the Program Files directory/folder? Is the Symbolic Link a pointer?

Problem:
The Stack Docklet icons lose its icon and list of shortcuts at every reboot of my Windows 10 laptop.
The folders for each icns containign the shortcuts of programs are on the C Drive.
Any reason why ?

Everytime I put path to a folder I get a window "Rocket Dock not reponding" and then it simply craches.

surfer007's Avatarsurfer007 (December 29, 2016):

Fix for the "some programs" does not open:

This happens with 64bit programs. My work around is to use a symbolic link for "c:\Program Files" directory. 32bit programs are installed to "c:\Program Files (x86)" and 64bit programs are installed to "c:\Program Files"

Create a symbolic link to the "c:\Program Files" and name it "Program Files (x64)"
open command prompt with admin rights and enter this command:
mklink /d "c:\Program Files (x64)" "c:\Program Files"

now replace all "c:\Program Files" links of the docklet shortcuts to the new
"c:\Program Files (x64)"

for example 64bit Libre Office link looks finally like this:
"C:\Program Files (x64)\LibreOffice 5\program\soffice.exe"

Using this symbolic link worked for me, Good luck!
PS: Stacks Docklet is cool :)
