  1. When customizing the start menu from the msstyles, does SIB check for any property or class to determine whether or not to show it? I don't theme too much so only today did I realize that modifying an 8.1 theme didn't update the start menu so I checked this thread and saw it requires an unmodified 8.0 theme.
  2. That's not really safe.
  3. Ribbon applications have a custom drawn frame for the QAT, contextual tab headers, and relocating title to render on to it. The title text is also custom drawn and it still works as it did in Vista/7 in that the text can have a transparent background and text glow applied to it. Normal windows however have an opaque background applied to it which is controlled by DWM's colorization color. This is why you're seeing Paint have a proper title and other applications aren't.
  4. How exactly do you mean? The navigation button hasn't changed in 8 except for their location being moved back into the msstyles. All that's required is having DWM extend to the height of the navbar. (And replacing the white image of the navbar with a transparent one)
  5. A friend of mine donated but it's not loading his donation key, just gives error 5. Assuming that number is a error being returned. I tried to help him and he's reinstalled several times without any luck. Any ideas as to what could be the reason? He's also generated the key several times.
  6. You might want to check HKU\DEFAULT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ThemeManager DllName is set to C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\Aero\Aero.msstyles. This key isn't always updated properly and can cause the black screen on boot after uninstalling a uxtheme patch.
  7. I'm not entirely sure how this happened but I did run disk cleanup and have the thumbnail cache selected
  8. I was going to suggest that it used Vista Beta's frame that still exists in that location if it didn't. Otherwise I could modify WSB to not remove the frame on save. Alternatively look for an image in: Start Menu > Panels > Basic > Places List > Panels > User Pane which would be the equivalent location to that old Vista property. Also, is there a way to purchase SIB+ as a gift for someone else?
  9. Yes, it reads 32-bit PARGB BITMAPs, not msstyles parts. I'm confused, you say yes then say not msstyles parts.
  10. I don't ever use the user picture, but does the frame read from the msstyles?
  11. I'm curious about this too, another person I know had the same issue, but just for RC1. Downloaded the symbols, changed the right registry keys, even sent me a few screenshots showing what all he had done, but nothing, no dialog, watermark, or anything.
  12. Found a tiny bug with the installer, if the config.exe is in a directory path with a space in it, regsvr32 fails. "The module "X:\My" could not be loaded" for example. Nothing really major, just noticed it today.
  13. Taskbar blurring still works with SIB. You can still use UxStyle for signature bypassing, and I don't know about you but custom swatches never worked for me and only removed the ones that were already there causing the control panel to be empty. So we need SIB & UxStyle & aerohost.exe & dwm console open & watermark NOW, just to get DWMGlass.dll to work same as before. No Thanks Ok, then don't use it
