To get back onto the main topic, PLEASE do include the installer with the last RC. Since who knows what could screw up on that thing if it is shipped with only one person testing the installer? More eyes=less bugs. That way the final can be as close to perfection as humanly possible. :)

@bigmuscle: May I ask what's the name of the theme you're using in your official website demo? That's fabulous!! Thx in advance~ :rolleyes:

On this screenshot, this is the tweaked custom resource I made wich is included with AGTweaker.
It's a mix of Win8 Release Preview theme and Windows 7 Aero theme.

bigmuscle, keep going for the final version you're almost there! :thumbup

Stop asking about Windows 8.1. This project isnt even done for 8. Bigmuscle's not going to focus on 8.1 until this one is finished so stay on topic or start a new thread.

By the way, i forgot to say. Will be there a possibility to have the same aero on the taskbar then on the windows ?

If you take a look at the screenshot, you see that the taskbar is darker than the windows.

I assumes this is because aero is already managed natively in the taskbar.

AERO GLASS for Win8 RC4

* automatic symbols downloading for DWM libraries
--> this delays glass loading a bit
--> only for udwm.dll and dwmcore.dll (not for themes/shell32 for performance reasons)

* added option to enable/disable to bypass theme signature
--> HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\DWM:BypassThemeSignature (DWORD 0x0 to disable (default) / 0x1 to enable)

* custom swatches works with HKCU registry key
* fixed crash with 3rd-party DWM hooks (e.g. WindowsFX)

Super!

* automatic symbols downloading for DWM libraries


Can this still be disabled via reg-key?

Thanks for the new RC. Works flawlessly for me, can confirm NO problem with the screensavers like in the last RC.
BTW you didn't include the installer in this build (why?) and will the symbol files downloaded by the last RC work on the new one (seems working)?

Here's a quick debug log from the new RC.
Debug --> RC4

And here's the debug log from the old RC (used for almost half a month on fresh install).
Debug --> RC3

When MS changes DWM so much that requested memory address is not found, it will download two files from MS server which allows detecting of exact memory location need to hook. This ensure that DWM will still work when DWM changes without modifying AeroGlass.

BTW you didn't include the installer in this build (why?) and will the symbol files downloaded by the last RC work on the new one (seems working)?

I will not includd installer at all unless I found a proper way to load glass at Windows start-up. It is still too much dangerous to modify AppInit_DLLs registry so value so it should be done by advanced and not by automatic installer.

Download symbol files are dependent on DWM libraries and not on my code. When DWM changes, new symbols are automatically downloaded.

Custom themes are off by default, so if you had custom theme applied your system can stuck on reboot.

Sorry, but RC4 is not working for me.
My screen is just flashing on and off upon boot up.
This is a Lenovo P500 laptop connected to a monitor.
The laptop graphics are Intel HD 4000.

EDIT
Okay, thanks BM and Ryan19
Added new registry setting and now it's working fine.
I read the notes but didn't realize it was a requirement.
