Windows 8 x86:
Starts with the error, but aero may work after several presses of ignore button. However error still appears and it makes your tweak unusable.

Well I finally got it to work and it works well. I look forward to the final version. Also, how do I donate? Do you accept PayPal?

Thank you, Works great, but I can't help wonder how long it's going to take Microsoft to put Glass back into Win 8. Now that you have it working so well I'm sure once it reaches final build nearly every Win 8 user will have it installed. The way Microsoft is they'll have to be jerks and replace it themselves just to be jerks.


At the moment they have no intention of ever reintroducing it. But it would be nice if they made it part of an optional enhancement pack. I doubt that'll ever happen.

Can someone direct me to the post that outlines the correct way to adjust registry keys to change the parameters (colour, transparency etc).

ok, I solved by disabling the UEFI secure boot, seem that there are some compatibility issues with the new secure boot.... :yes:

Works perfecly for me, note that I'm still using Direct2D instead of Direct3D because of the way windows are colored in Direct3D.

Ah thanks. I have yet to play around with this. I may have been premature saying it didn't work because now I read that sometimes all one has to do is change the theme to get things rolling. I'll play some more with this.
Meanwhile I see that your AGTweaker is still playing catch up. Hopefully this will all end soon!!

How strange. Did everything as described, altered the reg file to match my drive letter N and merged. Rebooted, tried changing themes. No DWM entry in HKLM and no Aero Glass.

But the HKCU entry is there.

I wonder if Stardock's Start8 is interfering? However I haven't disabled translucency at all.

Strange it wasn't working then I installed the latest AGTweaker and eureka!

It now works. Thanks ;-)

What does one do to undo things once the final version is released?

HKLM...DWM key is not in Win8 by default because you are not supposed to touch it. It is intended for global technicals parameters only. All possible keys are available in HKCU but still.. it is better to adjust colorization settings in Control panel itself :yes:

Just updated the GUI, it creates registry keys for you if you have some trouble creating them yourself: http://msfn.org/board/topic/162036-/

Worked perfectly on my x64 VM, didn't have to change any settings from the last version, just edited the reg file and logged out and then logged in and working 100%, no noticeable lag, no random crashing when opening start menu (with SIB) as I was getting in all previous versions, only thing I have noticed so far is if you restart explorer (using a right click context shortcut) the whole screen is blurred for a second, I was just wondering though if you plan on making blur and rounded corners optional in your final release, I love that you have found a way to bring back all these features but personally I prefer no blur at all and have it disabled in Windows 7 on explorer windows anyway.

Also one other question, with that registry setting for rounded corners, is there any way to reverse that effect and make corners square in Windows 7?

Here's a preview of mine with a Windows 7 theme I imported, made changes to the fram to make it square but I guess I can have rounded again now as well thanks to you :)

Is there any possibility (i.e. registry key) to disable blur and leave transparency only in Windows 7? If yes, then this settings must work here too (and I just don't respect that settings), but no custom settings will be done in D3D...you can still set to D2D mode and set BlurDeviation to zero.
Rounded corners will stay as it is - just simple registry settings, nothing more, nothing less. And yes, it can be modified in Windows 7. Since it is only hooking of CreateRoundRectRgn which is called when window frame is created, then I guess my utility will work in Windows 7 too without any additional modifications (and aero glass won't be touched at all).

Yeah it can be done in windows 7 and in Vista with a registry key.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\DWM]
"ColorizationOpaqueBlend"=dword:00000000
"HideBlur"=dword:00000001


Will have to give it a go on 7 and see what happens :)

Just posting to confirm that disabling UEFI Secure Boot does the trick :thumbup Also as a suggestion, maybe it could be added as a note in the OP ;)

However, I have noticed that Win8 RTM Color settings control panel sets a bit different values (mainly for ColorizationColorBalance and ColorizationBlurBalance) in registry than Win8 RP which results that D3D mode transparency is not so transparent as once would expect. Maybe someone could rewrite Windows control panel to send better values :-)


What are the default Windows 8 Release Preview values in the registry for what you mentioned (including ColorizationColorBalance and ColorizationBlurBalance)?

It depends on used wallpaper, but default wallpaper with roses generates these values:

AfterGlowBalance = 7
BlurBalance = 31
ColorBalance = 62
Color/AfterGlow = 0xaf34bbeb

The new works fine, but only in D2D mode. The windows doesn't turn transparent in D3D mode, it remains the same as before. All the previous versions with D3D had similar problems. My Laptop runs on Intel HD 3000 adapter, maybe that is the problem?
