There is a windows rt jailbreak and I do understand the complexities of porting the hooking system.

Is there any method to edit the level of transparency / color opacity on the taskbar?

if you use StartIsBack's transparency method then AeroGlass blur is rendered into taskbar too. Then the AeroGlass settings are also applied to the taskbar area.

For me, the taskbar is darker and not that transparent.
It is more transparent if you blur the background with photosop behind and enable taskbar transparency.

Bigmuscle. I love you for this application. Win8 finally looks like it should. In preview 0.2 I had problems with CPU usage by Explorer. Version 0.3 works flawlessly. No increased CPU/GPU usage. Gadgets window looks good (but it has 2 problems - gadget selection and expandable description don't work). It even fixed the ObjectDock option to enable blur behind. You are my master!

I hope you will make the next version to work with lower GPU clocks. Btw, why Startisback is supported and Start8 not?

Likely because StartIsBack uses DWM composited start menu and Start8 uses standard (layered) window. You can complain to Startdock, although they're likely to support blur with their WindowBlinds, not this tool.

Stopped working on my OS after changing blur and opacity values in AGTweaker. I now get a black screen with only the mouse cursor visible (also tried resetting to defaults).

Ah yes, forgot about it. After you release new version, I replace old files in C:\DWM with new ones. I also deleted the old debug log. Now, after I run version 3 of your hook, debug log is no longer created. It seems like a step backwards on my OS. I'll run it from desktop and see what happens.

I have always cried for the Glass feature on Windows 8. Was pretty disappointed when the developing version was stopped by Microsoft, (China Forum using Tihiy's Win7ExplorerforWin8).

You just brought my dream back to life :D

THANKS A LOT and keep up the good job!

RS, DF etc ?

Cheers :)

Just signed up because of this thread!

Can't thank you enough for bringing Aero Glass to Windows 8 as this is the only reason I chose not to upgrade..

Found a few issues though while testing in VMware, it seems to be really hit and miss when it chooses to work and after I install programs such as Start8 and or Decor8 it breaks the DWMLoader and does not load the Glass feature once ether of these programs are installed.

I can run the Loader while installing Start8 and glass stays...until a reboot :/

Oh! and one last thing there are two graphical bugs ive noticed.. the Gadgets menu (when installed) doesn't respond but is usable and UAC prompts seem to act funny as you drag them.

Hope you can fix the issues above so i can move to W8 :)

Ive attached a debug log for you..would have attached screenshots but i cant upload more than 500k..Attached File  debug.txt   152.9KB   13 downloads

Thanks
