Aero Glass for Win8 RC4

2,631 posts in this topic

The installer will directly install the DWMGlass.dll and .pdb to the system directory.

I think this is bad (missing write permissions to the log files)

Just my 2 cents but a uninstaller would have been a nice feature and should be easy to add...confused.gif

Here's a registry file that will unload Aero Glass for Win8. After running it, log out then back in again and Aero Glass for Win8 will not start.

Click Here

If you'd rather not trust the file, this is what's in the above:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows]

"LoadAppInit_DLLs"=dword:00000000

"AppInit_DLLs"=""

"RequireSignedAppInit_DLLs"=

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\DWM]

"CustomThemeResource"=

This will also unload from commandline

@echo off

reg delete "hklm\software\microsoft\windows nt\currentversion\windows" /v "LoadAppInit_DLLs" /f>nul

reg delete "hklm\software\microsoft\windows nt\currentversion\windows" /v "LoadAppInit_DLLs" /f>nul

In the installer that i've made, i exactly have some problem to unload the appinit without restarting or sign out, so i just kill the dwm.exe process :unsure:

the uninstaller also removing the appinit.reg, and swatches.reg from the registry.

I get some flickering in the TortoiseGit when VS2012 is shown in background. If I minimize the VS2012, the flickering is gone.

I think the reg entry you have is incorrect with the quote marks and will flash back a error message should have the (-)minus to delete the file like so..

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows]

"LoadAppInit_DLLs"=-

thanks I'll test it now.

Btw,

can you add proper file version data to the DLL so that we can see which version we currently use?

It is **** impressive work. You have accomplished what Stardock is having issue with and microsoft I bet at times said was impossible. My only issue is that damned demo messagebox. I appreciate that this is a demo and use under my own responsibility but I am getting the box every hour or so.

I do want to ask tho i bet it has been asked before. How may I contribute to your efforts and fine work. Also I must report that the dll and glass seem to conflict with Stardock's WindowFX. I am not sure why it should conflict but it sends DWM into a typical crash loop that results in being kicked out of my user session.

Peace,

Matt A. Tobin
