  1. He is probably funny. But I see much more funnier when someone installs buggy beta version of the operating system and then he complains that he is not able to run the software which was never meant to be run there.
  2. No mail after donation

    The password is not in the e-mail if you already got it in some previous donation. Passwords are not stored as plain text and thus cannot be recovered and resend. Verify, that you put your e-mail address and postal/zip code correctly - it must 100% match the information in your PayPal account at the time of the transaction. If it still does not work, send me your e-mail via PM.
  3. Thank you for the minidump file. I found the bug and will reupload the fixed version immediately when it is fixed.
  4. It did not disable Aero itself, but it completely disabled DWM composition using API function https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/aa969510(v=vs.85).aspx Since Win8, this function is deprecated and if you call it, nothing happens, because you cannot disable DWM composition at all.
  5. Nope, application cannot crash due to Aero Glass. If some application draws its own frame (and thus bypassing DWM rendering), then it does not call DWM rendering functions and therefore Aero Glass rendering is not executed at all.
  6. Aero Glass for Win8.1+ 1.4.6

    This will probably not happen when you use the correct version from Aero Glass website.
  7. I know about this and I would like to fix it, but I has not been able to reproduce it on any computer. Also the question is how many users are affected and whether it is really the bug. Yes, I could compile it, but I don't know when I manage it. Maybe in a week or two.
  8. Probably not, mainly because you should not use AppInit_DLLs to load anything, because it can cause a lot of side effects when the library is injected where it should not be.
  9. NoelC: it is not possible, but I may send you new DLL to test if you accept it has debug console.
  10. Aero Glass for Win8.1+ 1.5.3

    I don't say that I don't want this fix/add it. It is just not so easy to be done so it is not the main priority. And I know it may sounds wrong for someone, but if someone thinks that switching one UWP app to fullscreen is the primary functionality of Windows than Aero Glass is nothing he should use.
  11. Aero Glass for Win8.1+ 1.5.3

    I do not see any critical bug in your post. You can always switch UWP app to the fullscreen mode with Ctrl+Maximize which has been said here several times. However, if you rely on some UWP app where its functionality is limited with using glass frame, you can always switch to the classic frame with "regsvr32 /u DWMGlass.dll", as has been said here several times.
  12. Aero Glass for Win8.1+ 1.5.3

    It would make no sense. There is no Aero Glass for build 15063, so there is nothing to discuss. People just should realize if they fill the topic with the off-topic stuff, I will not be able to respond to the valid posts.
  13. Aero Glass for Win8.1+ 1.5.3

    I would like to highlight that this topic is about Aero Glass for Windows 10 build 10.0.14393. Any discussion out of this topic might be deleted to keep the thread clean to read.
