  1. Can't Generate Key

    If you are not the advanced user then you should not use any experimental software.
  2. Feature requests

    If you have any requests for features / fixes / etc. that should appear in Aero Glass utility, please write it in this topic. I remember there were some requests in other topics but it is harder to collect anything from them. Please, keep it on topic and use for feature requests only. My current idea is to enhance GUI utility with the feature which helps with atlas editing. If you have any ideas, feel free to write it here.
  3. Title bar rescaling

    Aero Glass does not render titlebar buttons so it cannot influence it in any way. The glyphs are stored in the used theme for several DPIs. If they are rendered incorrectly then you are using either uncommon scaling or invalid theme.
  4. Login on the website and then you can download the UNSTABLE DEBUG version.
  5. Don't afraid. It was just an ironic note, because of users asking the same things over and over again and they still expect some answer although it has been covered milliontimes.
  6. UxTheme service hook - Visual Theme Signature Bypass I just had a little bit of free time, so I extracted some older code from Aero Glass for Win8 into the separate DLL to make it work on Windows 8.1. It has not been tested, but you can play with this as you want, there is no limit. But also no support and probably no future development, because there is nothing more to change on it. Either It works or it does not work How to install? The only possible way to install it is using old injection method via AppInit_DLLs registry key. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows -> set AppInit_DLLs value to specific DLL for your OS (so select either xxx32.dll or xxx64.dll only!) Although, it is not needed to make this work, it is also suitable that, on 64-bit Windows, you do the same "install" procedure on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows (but always with xxx32.dll!). If you don't do this, 32-bit theme-related applications won't be able to access your unsigned themes. Something to know? Yes! There is one very important thing if you use Aero Glass for Win8.1! Due to certain DbgHelp.dll restriction, Aero Glass for Win8.1 won't able to load PDB symbols after you install UxThemeSignatureBypass.dll into your system. There is a simple workaround - just copy symsrv.dll from Aero Glass directory into your system directory (probably C:\Windows\System32). I will try to bring a fix for this in future version of Aero Glass for Win8.1, but I cannot promise that, because its a bit complicated. License? It's freeware. Use as you want, just the copyright must be preserved. Where to download? http://glass8.eu/
  7. Nope, Aero Glass does not interfere with the fluent design. Only applying DWM frame on UWP apps does (regardless the Aero Glass) - which can be disabled anytime.
  8. Nope, it is still disabled, because I don't know how to deal it since applying DWM frame on UWP apps will break fluent design.
  9. you can change BlurDeviation settings
  10. ApplicationFrame hook is intentionally disabled in RS3 builds.
  11. Aero Glass for Win8.1+ 1.5.3 * hardcoded symbols patterns up to build 14393.953 * fixed caption misalignment when glow effect is disabled * added option to draw caption centered (HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\DWM: CenterCaption (DWORD 0x0 / 0x1)) - if glow effect is enabled and caption is set to be centered, the glow effect will be drawn over whole frame width - do NOT report it as the bug! * changed IAT hooks initialization order * enable SeDebugPrivilege in aerohost process
  12. Aero Glass for Win8.1+ v1.4.6 * hardcoded symbol patterns for build 10586.589 * dirty region optimization fixes * when DWM process crashes too often, Aero Glass will stop injecting * fixed data sharing between more drawings in one pass This version is designed for Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 TH up to build 10586 only! Use this topic to discuss v1.4.6 only! Discussion about RS build will be deleted to avoid off-topic and increase readability!
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. Thank you for the minidump file. I found the bug and will reupload the fixed version immediately when it is fixed.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. Aero Glass for Win8.1+ 1.4.6

    This will probably not happen when you use the correct version from Aero Glass website.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. NoelC: it is not possible, but I may send you new DLL to test if you accept it has debug console.
  22. 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.
