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.

Please note that Moreno's personal web site www.matiasmoreno.com.ar seems to be offline as of March 30, 2018, and the Stacks 2 update has been removed from the RocketDock add-on page. This may be because the Stacks 2 installer downloads the rar file from Moreno's web site and the download fails. I don't know of a way to get Stacks 2 without Moreno's web site.

There is a huge opportunity for RocketDock, Stacks, and other add-ons right now because RocketDock is recognized as the best scalable dock for Windows 10 out there right now (see recent Kim Kommando blog posts).

In any upgrade, you may - or may not - want to consider support for "Universal Applications," i.e. tablet and cell phone applications that will install and run on Windows 10. I have no use for "Universal Applications" on my desktop myself. But they may be of interest to people with touch-screen tablets and laptops that run under Windows 10.

To use in my particular Windows 10, you need to open the Icon Settings of each Stack, and set a Folder. The folder must be somewhere you have write permission, and you put shortcuts to the items you want in this stack in the folder. The folder name becomes the stack name.

While you are in Icon Settings, you can also set an Icon for the stack if you wish.

I'm just starting out with RocketDock, but it seems that you can start 64-bit applications from Rocket Dock but NOT from a Stack, unless you "start" a file that invokes a 64-bit application.

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.

RockyFaher's AvatarRockyFaher (August 12, 2017):

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 ?
