The current build of Stardock Central is inappropriately showing that some people can "update" their DesktopX install to DesktopX Professional 3.1. Please untick that box if you are using the updates window.

We'll get that fixed in the next SDC update.

The outage will continue in some fashion into Tuesday (GMT-5)

One of our server hard drives is trying to fail on us. RAID has helped with it so far, but library downloads are suspended while we make some additional snapshots of the current data set.

As of 10am Saturday (GMT-5), most everything should be back up and running. Anyone with existing Stardock Central accounts should have continued to be able to download components and updates over the course of the problems. Orders and the support page to send your serials from are now back as well.

There will be some catching up over the next couple of days, especially as its the weekend.
