Thank you for this nice project. Here is some feedback:

1. When I open a window, the normal Win8 design appears for a split second before the glass effect shows up.

2. I added an attachment with the best configuration of color and intensity.

Well, I admit that this can look weird but this does not seem to be bug. If you look properly this happens even in Win7; it is just reversed there - Window opens with fully transparent frame, then the blur appears.

So after poking a bit...

1: The GUI tool resets the DLL path. Bad.

2: Without touching the tool and being sure that the registry setting survives, glass still refuses to work in any other way than by running the loader included in older versions.

3: I'm out of ideas.

Do I understand correctly that you use old loader to load the current version? If not, then try looking into Log Viewer whether there is not some info why AppInit_DLLs failed to load. Also make sure that UEFI secure boot is disabled (I don't know whether you have already mentioned this)-

Correct. I use the 0.5 loader to load the 0.7. I will look into the logs...

However due to a technical problem I will be re-installing windows 7 today. Windows 8 is so fragile it keeps breaking on me.

The only thing I can see in the log viewer is a warning confirming that I indeed am loading custom libraries. That is all.

There is something wrong for you, just because it is technically impossible to load version 0.7 with the loader. The needed exports (required by loader) are not present in 0.7.

one of the nicest pieces of software for improving windows 8 is being ruined by the popup box that happens far too often

you have made your point surely by showing it on startup - to constantly pop it up is beyond a joke - ok you want to make money out of your hard work and you will but be fair to those who are testing it and reporting back - its a pain in the backside

protection is one thing paranoia is another - its time somebody took it out - i for one have uninstalled your [excellent] software - if and when the final version comes out i will look again

and please comment - dont ignore it as you have up until now - if i am turned off there must be others - you are harming your reputation imo
