Aero Glass for Win8 RC4

2,631 posts in this topic

Alright, in my inadvertent lack of knowledge to how to properly use this, it has literally f'ed up my themes in Windows 8. I have no idea on how to get back to the original Win 8 theme because it doesn't apply the taskbar changes, but keeps them transparent, and no matter what theme I click, it wont go away. I had Aero 8 and Aero Glass installed. Aero 8 can't be deleted from the themes folder because Windows says it is in use. CAN ANYBODY, PLEASE HELP me in restoring my themes back to stock Windows 8? Please help, anybody...

Doesn't look too bad to me... alt+tab to switch.

Restart if you haven't tried already, if you have tried already, restart and hold ctrl while it's booting, should load it without the modifications. Then uninstall.

Also you're having permission issues, use an Administrator account.

Edit: Are you trying to delete a theme? If so you're doing something VERY wrong.

There are no themes involved with this. I have no idea where you even got that from...

To uninstall properly, you'll need an admin account, the AGTweaker GUI, and then you click the X in the bottom right corner of the GUI and restart.

Should check your restore points and see if you could back date it, I got a .vbs file that I use that stays on my desktop and does it automatically for me to Keep me out of

trouble. Or maybe Bigmuscle Or Orelio could add a option for a restore point

This is what I don't understand since the beginning. There were many posts "It does not work for me so I did system restore" but why this? AeroGlass does not perform any change into the system so there is nothing to restore. If something gets broken, it is because user modified something on his own. Yes, there is a small registry script to install the thing, but it is very short so anyone can check what is being changed, save the original registry key and restore it later.

I guess people are just jumping onto it without considering the "for experienced testers only" part. If you are not comfortable with editing the registry and system files, do NOT touch this!

System restore is way too overkill to undo a registry change, but if they messed up something theme related, it's the way to go.

No ones blaming your bm for the issues, Everyone should know this is BETA again repeat BETA .. I would be willing to bet that he hacked the Uxtheme.dll file incorrectly

or changed a system with a non digital signed one. So if you dont know what you are doing then your probably get really good at installing and reinstalling your OS a lot ..biggrin.gif

Hi Big Muscle,

I'am testing your Aero Glass Since this Week (And ORelio's AGT who already do a good job)

I have tested one of the first version of DwmHook some months ago, but it gived me a Black Screen. Current Version Works Fine!

I have noticed some minors bugs already mentionned by other members: Little tracks depending on colors intensity in the Taskbar, Windows border and in some browsers when closing a tab (I see this in Chrome: the closed tab let some tracks behind). Windows Borders are not Blured when they are over IE10 (See ScreenShot).

I Use your software (V0.8 Beta2) on my Windows 8x64 with a self-made msstyle, together with UxStyle Core Beta, and Start8.

If i Find something else i will post it here but what ever, You do a very good job, Keep it up!

Other control button then maybe? I haven't actually tried it myself, just a general tip that's been mentioned many times in the thread. Also make sure you're holding it when DWM loads, not (just) when Windows is booting/during the BIOS screen/etc

Could also be that you didn't install the program correctly, so it's not even what's causing the problem... broken DWM or theme perhaps.

Not to derail the topic, but since you're obviously a visual style magician, would you happen to know a way to fix a bug in the RP theme? When you select a file, or a shortcut, on the desktop for example, it doesn't look like it should. There's a solid square around it, and no hover effects. I don't know if you know what I mean, but yeah... Also, is it easy to change the nav buttons? I'd love the RTM ones in the RP theme. (Apologies if it's a lot to ask, just ignore the post if it is!)

Also, that looks like a killer feature Bigmuscle! Can't wait for what future builds of AG8 will bring along!
