Wondering how to get rid of the extra bar thing on left side not sure what I did wrong.

You are using theme resource which is not compatible with your "msstyles" theme.

Exactly, two files are provided with AGTweaker 1.3, one for windows 8 default theme, and another one for windows 8 release preview theme :)

this is .net exception. From the part I can see, it shows that the tool saves some settings in a file but there is an issue with the filename. The filename is empty for an unknown reason.

Let user to browse for DWMGlass.dll and add the path + file name in a hidden textbox and "AppInit_DLLs" will use the path from that textbox. Same for resource files....

Problem with this is that you can't have paths with spaces in them.

The above .net error is triggered by setting the custom resource option, then changing native blur setting. I had to untick the custom resource then tick it again for it to go away.
Though it's weird cause it doesn't happen all the time.

Updated the GUI to 1.3.1, this should fix that issue.
Thanks for having reported the bug :)

I got a bug to report. Ever since I applied version 1.2.1 onto my system, the inactive window border permanently turns to black, except when you turn on Native Blur, but Native Blur is annoying glitchy. By doing System Restore, that sometimes fixes the problem, but all restore points are now gone. Help?

I don't think that's caused by AGTweaker itself but more likely by DWMGlass.
In this case I'm not going to be able to help you... You may try direct2D mode from Beta 1.

I only offered the Hawaiian Scapes in the "rounded corner" version and not "square", I have found that the rounded look
is much more softer and pleasing to the eyes that the hard square corner look, so I probably won't offer a square corner
theme unless I get a lot of requests for it. My main goal when creating this Hawaiian theme was three fold.

1. I orginally created this for my own personal use for my unattended Windows 8 install to get away from the default
boring Windows 8 theme look, but porting over some of the features that we all liked from Windows 7 like the glow, aero and round
windows frames look, plus a easy preactiaved theme installer without the need of installing everything manually.

2. I did not want a theme that would hack any Windows system files that would only be defaulted back to orginal files
from future Windows updates or a possible service pack.

3. And finally I wanted a relaxing theme to make you feel like you were on vacation with the sites and sounds of a
a tropical location. Posted Image

This should answer your question. Quoted from the first post.

Upgrading from a previous version :
Use the button in bottom right corner of AGTweaker to delete the previously installed DLL.
It will probably disable glass and say that's still in use, so restart your computer (with glass disabled), re-launch AGTweaker and press this button again.
It should then display "Successfully deleted" and you'll be able to install the new version properly.

You need a custom theme because glow on buttons and rounded corners are not supported by the signed themes provided by microsoft.
So yes, patching or using UXStyle is needed.

This means that if i use custom file or msstyle file without UXStyle glow buttons will not work?

Downloaded AGTweaker v1.3.1.

When I run AGTweaker ... the screen blanks out for a second and then comes back but there is no transparency and no blur, nothing.

It is as if AGTWeaker isn't isn't even running.

Any help to diagnose this would be much appreciated!
