Aero Glass for Win8 RC4

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

I tried looking through but 75 pages takes a bit more time than I have. I downloaded the latest file, but I am not a programmer. What do I need to make this aeroglass modification work. It just looks like I got registry edit files and the readme only mentions updates and not a how to. The youtube video I came across had an EXE to activate and deactivate the process. How can I create/obtain this.. short of taking programming courses. I computer literate, but not in programming. I dont want to edit the registry automatically without knowing all the keys so I can set them back to default.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

All I can say, it wasn't a "cracked" version because I know I found this tool on DeviantArt and I didn't get ANY popup ! I keep my PC turned on all the night and no popups...

So I wanted to try the newest version and darling little pop up reappears :/

It is only annoying when I play a game, it returns to my desktop automatically :(

Clicking OK is not a problem.

Greetings :)

Well if a command prompt came up when you ran it, then it's an old outdated version, and has the command prompt rather than the popups.

You can try running the game in a window, but otherwise all I can say is disable it when you aren't testing.

There's no .exe, just modify the .reg file so it points to the right place, run it, and install AGTweaker from its other topic in this forum to make changes.

We should make a FAQ.

Bigmuscle, i am now testing version 0.9.

In my first post on 29 April about V0.8, i mentioned that blur effect is missing when windows are over IE10, but i realize now that this happens only when using blur in native mode (non native mode in V0.8 gived me only transparency, no blur).

Now V0.9 works very fine and i have blur without using Native mode. Artifacts are still here (but very minors), but i noticed they appears only when i am in dual screen, or on first screen (laptop)! When i am only on secondary screen there is no artifacts.

Hope this helped you, regards.

BigMuscle, something strange happened, re-downloaded v0.9 from the first page and guess what, it's working! :unsure:

You may be referring to the Aero Glass Tweaker, see link in my signature for more info.

Does anybody has access to 32-bit version of Windows 8 Release Preview and could send me (via PM) file C:\Windows\System32\uDWM.dll ? (32-bit RP only!)

I tried 0.9 and edited the registry destination to C:\windows\aero\DWMGlass.dll, then put everything in aero folder, is there a reason why it didn't work at all? no errors or anything, but UI looks completely the same.

Just install the gui AGTweaker with the dll files for your OS bit..

I tried using Tweaker but have experienced no change whatsoever.

not sure it will work from windows folder - make a folder in c - dwm will do - put it in there with aero tweaker and try that - if that does not pick it up alter the reg file to show the new location and run that

Hey guys, so I made an account to thank Big Muscle for his outstanding work on this, it looks like it is really working well now and I can't wait to the official release (presumably v1.0?) - I would install it right now but I basically don't know what the hell I'm doing, I can't open the ".7z" file that I have to download (hopefully the final version will be a regular, supported file version like .ZIP or something like ORelio does for his software) and I'm not sure what the best software would be to download a ".7z" file format. Then after I find a way to get software to open that file format I doubt it's as easy as clicking on an installer in the folder, lol

Oh well, I guess I'll just wait for the actual software when it's out of beta, again, good stuff Big Muscle!

It's a fairly common compression format, I use ALZip, I hear 7zip is also good.
