What can i do to provide usefull information ?


Generally speaking, what BigMuscle usually asks for to start with are the .log files that are created in the same folder as the .DLL.

When I try v0.91, my whole screen goes black for between 5 and 10 minutes.


The previous error has been resolved for me, regarding the "occlusion rectangles".

I have a problem with auto login to windows. If I make a password to my local account and then setup to auto login with this password, windows stops at the login screen and asks for a password. I confirmed that it is related to DWM hook because if I disable it to load then windows login automatically. Would someone try to replicate it. I am using windows 8 x64.

Thanks

I use Auto Login and works fine for me

yes, if this log is complete, it means that it has not been injected into dwm at all - or you just placed DLL into the folder where dwm.exe has not write privileges.

Thanks for your response. I did not found a dwm.exe on the site to download the dll file.

Where can i found the DWM.exe file ?

DWM.exe is a system binary that ships with Windows in C:\Windows\System32. What he's saying, though, is that whereever you placed the .dll he provided is a place that the DWM process (once loaded and running) does not have permissions to write to.

I have made the installer version for the RC0, sorry i haven't tell you before. Here is the download link :whistle:
The installer will directly install the DWMGlass.dll and .pdb to the system directory. If there is an error, it is your own risk :yes:

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...Posted Image

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

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
