  1. For those - like me - who experience problems with the latest Windows Updates and Aero Glass,the procedure for manually installing symbols is easy. You probably don't even need to install Windows Debugging Tools Just create a txt in C:\AeroGlass or wherever you have AeroGlass installedPaste the following:MKDIR %userprofile%\appdata\local\temp\dllsCD C:\Windows\System32XCOPY "dwm.exe" %userprofile%\appdata\local\temp\dllsXCOPY "dwmcore.dll" %userprofile%\appdata\local\temp\dllsXCOPY "uDWM.dll" %userprofile%\appdata\local\temp\dllsCD C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\8.1\Debuggers\x64SYMCHK /r %userprofile%\appdata\local\temp\dlls /s SRV*C:\AeroGlass\symbols\*http://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbolsRD /S /Q "%userprofile%\appdata\local\temp\dlls"Save the file and rename it to symbols.cmdRight Click and run as AdministratorThat's it, the Symbols folder should have been created inside your aeroglass installation folder! Hope this helps PS maybe info like this should be part of the OP, or be included in a readme or somewhere on aeroglass site? *hint hint*
  2. I've made a mistake and deleted everything under HKCU \ S o f t w a r e \ M i c r o s o f t \ W i n d o w s \ C u r r e n t V e r s i o n \ C o n t r o l P a n e l \ G l a s s C o l o r i z a t i o n \ S w a t c h e s in the key. Thought I had made a backup, turns out I did not :C Can anyone share the registry entry with the default values in it? Thanks a lot!
  3. I'd like to give my 2 cents about all the freeware\donationware\nagscreen fuss. I know nobody asked for my opinion, so for those who already have theirs and have no interest in losing time, you can stop here Before going on, a few words I feel the need to say: let's be honest, issues like this are really first world problems, and we should never get too angry\serious about it! Now then, back on topic. I really think this is all a debate upon the choice of words, not the software itself. We all know before installing that, without paying, there are going to be popups and a watermark,. It's of course right to point out, to the people complaining about not expecting those, that it's all clearly stated on Glass8 website and during installation. The real issue is that you can't, in my opinion, call Glass8 "freeware". And you can't call the money paid to make popups and watermark go away "donation". Why do I say this? A freeware,by its very definition, is a software provided free of charge and with no limitations.A donation is any amount of money given to anyone for any reason, without expecting anything back. Else it's buying.However, while it's true that the core functionality is there, Glass8 adds two things when installed for free: popups and a watermark. One can discuss forever on how much they find these to hinder user experience, if they do hinder it in any way, etc etc. but that's beyond the point. Fact is, they are not necessary for the software to work ie provide what it's intended for. They can be removed, but you have to pay for that. And when you have to pay to remove something from a software, then this software wasn't freeware to begin with,and yours is no donation. I expect unwanted things to go away by paying, and after that I consider my user experience full: so it's only logic to say that my previous experience was not. So it sums up to a bad choice of words, that some people was confused by\didn't like. Now let me say, I paid for a license and gladly so. Just thought someone might benefit from a clarification, as I think I'm saying things other people think too. Peace
  4. Just posting to confirm that disabling UEFI Secure Boot does the trick Also as a suggestion, maybe it could be added as a note in the OP
