First of all, thanks to bigmuscle for the great job, no Aero was one of the reasons that were making me postpone the switch to Windows 8.
I have problems running the Windows 8.1 RC2 version (x64). I unzipped the files, ran install.bat as administrator and the task was created and started succesfully.
The problem is that even when the task is running, nothing happens at all. I see the aerohost.exe process running, but no glass effect at all. Rebooting didn't help. Deleting and re-creating the task from the scheduler didn't help either. Manually running aerohost.exe also didn't. Finally, using the old unsupported LoadAppInit method didn't work either. In all of these cases I could see the process running (except with LoadAppInit of course), but no effect at all.
The log file just says:
[2013-12-24 16:49:32][0x1210:0x1214] Installing DWM hook... [2013-12-24 16:49:32][0x1210:0x1214] Module: C:\Users\Antitoon\Downloads\Berlios\dwmglass.dll
(repeated multiple times for all the attempts I made, of course)
Thanks to whom will help
