Is there anyway to put the streaks/lines from Vista and 7 Aero back in Windows 8? I was just wondering.

NoelC: I didn't check more but it looks that Win8.1 windows still have a small shadow thus it should not be the problem to increase its intensity via theme resource.

Btw, I played a bit, it's a glitchy as hell but:

Yeah, it's almost ready, just need to create installer etc. I did some last changes (mostly fixed bugs reported here and finished symbols downloading to be WinUpdates-proof) and do not intend to modify it more, I'm just not sure whether to risk it and release it directly as it is now or give one more RC to test.

Depends. Are there any serious bugs? Like really serious bugs(black screens etc.) Is that Save theme dialog gone? Then I'd say yes. Any other minor bugs aren't important for now and can be always fixed later. I don't remember any game/software that stayed at 1.0 and was perfect.

By the way, ClassicShell 4.0 is going to recognize the Aero Glass for Win8 product and offer the ability to have "glassy" menus. I'm beta testing that version now, and it works:

BigMuscle, if you see fit to include me in your Windows 8.1 testing, I'll be happy to contribute.

I'm impressed, that was very quick work (buggy or not) :). Nice job.

do whatever feels right - for me i would be happy with a final as i have had no problem from about 0.3 - it will never be finished i guess as things change or ideas are added but they can always be in updates

apart from the popup its been great for a long time

but making changes to a RC requires a new build to test. Only when you tested it and it worked, recompile the source (without any functional change) and only adjust the versionnumbers and remove RC/Beta strings.

I think you should release it as version 1.0, and if any issues arise you can release an updated version.

+1

I am also really impressed, 8.1 + aero Blur will be hel of a OS.

This solution should be honestly putted in the Windows Store when it is completed. I gives so much more to Windows 8.

Thanks Bigmuscle.

I'm a huge advocate for this software as it brings back what I think is one of the key forward thinking concepts in GUI design.

I was so glad when I stumbled across this project, and RC3 works flawlessly.

I'd be willing to help out with a Windows 8.1 version of the project if you'd like. =)

The screenshot probably doesn't show how glitchy it is, but it looks great from the screenshot!

Has anyone been able to patch the theme .dll files in 8.1 or use a custom visual style?

i have an error when i import the key swatches.reg
show me the way to import this reg


You need to take ownership of that Registry tree, then only you can edit the values.

@bigmuscle: Release another RC before final, so we can test it. We should make sure the final version is as less buggy as possible.

and also count me in for private beta testing!

Yeah, it is probably a good idea to do one more RC.

Good! This way we can test the installer along with Aero Glass.

Aero Glass is looking better and better with more Aero Glass capable themes coming to Windows 8.

NetSpeedMonitor, if you are using Windows 8, run the setup in compatibility mode (set to Windows 7).
