Bing Desktop not updating wallpaper choices

Hi all,

 

I'll make it brief - the Bing Desktop app for my PC is not updating the wallpaper choices.  I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling and get the same problem.  When clicking on the "i" button it shows the same set of thumbnails from days ago.

 

My specs:

Win 7 Professional 64-bit

Bing Desktop ver 1.3.363.0

Intel Core 2 Quad QX6700

4Gb RAM

AMD HD4870 512Mb

500Gb HD with 100Gb SSD running the OS.

 

I would appreciate any help.

 

Thanks,

 

Paul

Hi again Smittychat,

Thanks for all your help on this matter.  In the end I think I've found another solution, although I am now going to download this new version you have recommended.

In case it helps others what I did was to delete all the bing wallpaper images in:

C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\BingDesktop\themes

This seemed to force an update and my image has changed successfully each day for the last few days.

Thanks again for your help, and I hope this helps others who may experience the issue.

Cheers,

Paul

Hello,

I had the same problem and your answer helped me! thanks a lot.

But at first my language by default was spanish (live in spain) but i'm french, so i tried both languages and the wallpapers won't update.

So i tried english-america and tadaaa! i could switch to new wallpapers. It lookes like the app shows differente content depending on the laguage chosen.

Thanks again

Do or do not, but there is no try
