Aero Glass Tweaker GUI for Win8 v1.3.2

319 posts in this topic

Glad to see that your issue is solved. Yes, bigmuscle asked that I don't package his files with AGTweaker so you have to download the DLL by yourself and place it in the same folder.

A message box should inform you when you don't have the DLL file :

i have the same problem. the latest bigmuscle archive for x64 system contains only DWMGlass.dll? (previous ones contain both DWMGlass64.dll AND DWMGlass.dll.

I was tempted to rename the file and edit the registry...but I got cold feet..

Dowload the 64 bit version and rename it to DWMGlass64.dll, then place it in the same folder as AGTweaker.exe

Or download the 32 bit version and rename it to DWMGlass32.dll ;)

It's not intended for everyday use, so there is no way to disable them. Wait for the final version to be released. Which theme is this by the way? Looks pretty nice and the white captions are more readable than the default black ones...

Nice screenshot, this theme is classy :)

By the way, updated the GUI to support v0.9 BETA 3.

I did not update the install program as I'm no more allowed to include the DLL files with AGTweaker.

Opacity setting does nothing. you can add a new option, "Color Intensity" :D

"Only for Top/Bottom taskbar." $§%&$%/§§$%&/!!

Why anyone would use a top/bottom taskbar on a widescreen is still a mystery to me. But apparently too many do that. Even M$ didn't bother checking the fact the charms on win8 block certain functionality when using a vertical taskbar.

can you help me ?

Your issue is with having a path for your Appinit if using AGTweaker it will load the dll file to Windows directory,

or just put 64bit in the windows directory manually then change your reg file entry like so..

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows]

"LoadAppInit_DLLs"=dword:00000001

"AppInit_DLLs"="DWMGlass.dll"

"RequireSignedAppInit_DLLs"=dword:00000000

it's not working for me. I replaced all the files and did the steps to upgrade to a new version but it still says that there is no version.

Modified the source code for personal use, replaced 'Narrow window frames' with 'Border Padding Size', added 'Restart Windows Explorer', useful if Aero Glass is not applied on Start Menu and Taskbar when using StartIsBack. Updated the GUI to support DWMGlass v0.92 RC1. Ahh, and the colors menu is separated from the 'Apply' button, I did it because the color intensity is changed when settings are applied in AGTweaker and you always have to play with the slider of Color intensity in Windows Personalize menu to fix it, just move the slider a bit and color intensity is back to normal, without applying the changes, strange.

And DWMGlass will be installed in %SystemDrive%\DWM and not in Windows directory.

Removed some settings:

Direct2D Settings (Latest DWMGlass runs in Direct3D)

Native blur rendering (No such setting in the latest version of DWMGlass)

Opacity (GlassTransparency registry setting has been removed in the latest version of DWMGlass, now opacity is controlled by Color intensity in Personalize menu of Windows)

I'm not sure that the "generate inactive colour" setting is needed (or works) anymore. Inactive, transparent window borders should "tinted" with the active window glow colour rather than having an independant colour (which I believe only worked anyway when transparency was disabled)

Apart from that, I like the additions/changes you've made - it make AGT more of an all-in-one "appearence tweaker". Hopefully, Orelio and yourself can expand on that - a font changer would be useful, for example (it can be done as there stand-alone apps to do it). In essence, you could end-up with a replacement for the old-style personalisation settings tool that was removed with W8.

As I said, I changed it for personal use, I'm not a programmer, just changed and added a few lines... and yeah, the option to change window colors is useless... I will remove it. It's not hard to make a font changer but I already found one...

You did it buddy, I have no idea about programming, especially c#, I played a bit in visual basic and created some apps, launchers for games and other stuff... I modified your project by searching code examples for what I needed :P, it wasn't a copy - paste work, neither something special...
