Aero Glass for Win8 RC4

Recommended Posts

You seem to have a lot of problems on your system Tusticles.

Haven't seen any issues with overlapping IE windows myself, so keep the faith - it's possible for it to work right.

What video card and driver version do you have? Have you checked for updates to that (e.g., from AMD.com or nVidia.com)?

We are not using the same DWMGlass, I suppose you have RC0, I have the version released after RC0 (RC0 crashfix) with 'callBlurShapes' value in registry...

My GPU is NVIDIA GTX 670M and drivers 314.22

True, I have the main RC0 version. Sorry if I ended up confusing things.

i already wrote that callBlurShapes is just temporary solution which does not generate glass regions properly thus it makes no sense to report bugs when this mode is enabled

This is really awesome, thanks already for the work.

Unfortunately, i have to report that aero glass is lanched on my computer but neither the version 7/8/9 enabled the transparency.

I forced all possible color but no sign of transparency.

What can i do to provide usefull information ?

I've tested with the dll file directly or with AGTweaker-1.3 and all the provided options.

That are my specs :

Laptop : HP 655

VGA : AIT Radeon HD 7340

CPU : AMD E2-1800

OS : Windows 8 X64

Generally speaking, what BigMuscle usually asks for to start with are the .log files that are created in the same folder as the .DLL.

When I try v0.91, my whole screen goes black for between 5 and 10 minutes.

The previous error has been resolved for me, regarding the "occlusion rectangles".

I have a problem with auto login to windows. If I make a password to my local account and then setup to auto login with this password, windows stops at the login screen and asks for a password. I confirmed that it is related to DWM hook because if I disable it to load then windows login automatically. Would someone try to replicate it. I am using windows 8 x64.

Thanks

I use Auto Login and works fine for me

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
"AutoAdminLogon"="1"
"DefaultUsername"="Your user name"
"DefaultPassword"="Your Password"
"ForceAutoLogon"="1"

yes, if this log is complete, it means that it has not been injected into dwm at all - or you just placed DLL into the folder where dwm.exe has not write privileges.

Thanks for your response. I did not found a dwm.exe on the site to download the dll file.

Where can i found the DWM.exe file ?

DWM.exe is a system binary that ships with Windows in C:\Windows\System32. What he's saying, though, is that whereever you placed the .dll he provided is a place that the DWM process (once loaded and running) does not have permissions to write to.

I have made the installer version for the RC0, sorry i haven't tell you before. Here is the download link :whistle:

The installer will directly install the DWMGlass.dll and .pdb to the system directory. If there is an error, it is your own risk :yes:
