anyways, i tried to get it all to work and to try and understand how to do the things i did not understand from you and your guide, i understood some parts but not enough to know what i was really doing. i came across however a forum which i believe you also post on, since i saw your username on there:

New preview uploaded for the testers. Now it is one generic library which is able to run on both Win8.1 6.3.9600 and Win10 TP 6.4. It contains new features such as garbage collector for Direct2D resources to improve performance when moving windows between several displays.

 

  • Works nicely on Win 10 6.4.9860.
  • Works nicely on Win 8.1 6.3.9600

The only thing I saw was that on my 8.1 test system, Aero Glass had been coming up without the nag dialog before, but the new version failed to load license.key (which I'd had on there since early in your Aero Glass development).  Apparently your software now ONLY uses donation.key (I remember you saying you'd change it to do that).  Easily solved by renaming the file.

 

I'm not able to make the window borders on Win 10 inactive windows as dark/transparent as I've done on Win 8.1.  This is not a new issue with this version.  You said there was some limitation with the Win 10 version, right?  I take it you've not been able to work around it?  Not a big deal; inactive windows are just gray (on a dark background) instead of black.

Well, you were doing the very definition of spamming a forum.

 

We've been coming here for over a year following development of Glass and other software. Why change for you?

 

Or are you trying to earn affiliate points by posting rubbish for a click through.....

 

Now I'm guilty of feeding a troll. :blushing:

Odd...  Only the dwmcore.pdb symbols automatically loaded successfully here.  uDWM.pdb fails.  Something may be wrong with Microsoft's servers at the moment, though a 1/3 success sure seems odd.  For what it's worth, Aero Glass only partially works after that.  Theme atlas resources are off a bit as compared to the prior version.

Same here, Got it to work after some restarts....

Yes, only donation.key now. Changing the inactive colour is currently not possible on Win10 - or better, it is possible but because it is not possible to change the transparency level (you can distinguish between active and inactive frame), other colors than the default 235,235,235 looks very bad so I left the default value.
