No stress, it is my mistake in PHP script which corrupts the file during the download. I'm fixing it as soon as possible :)

 

That's good news.  Sometimes it's the little things that bite you in the rear...  :-)

If I right click to run in AeroGlass while in Task Secedular it says it's running

 

 

I noticed the status is no longer reliably updated in the Task Scheduler Libraries window.  You need to hit F5, at which point you'll see it's gone back to Ready status.

 

Yet another thing Microsoft has messed up lately.

EDIT: it should be ok now.. just redownload.

I redownloaded and it's working fine now in Win8.1 Update 1.

It now shows your watermark and I have the correct donation.key.

I will try it in Win10 TP when I have more time.

Thanks

 

Edit:

I finally installed in Win10 (x64) TP Build 9879 and all seems well.

The only difference was I had to use my own CustomThemeReflection.png

in order to get the reflection (stripes).

I didn't need to do that in Win8.1.

Thanks again for all your great work.

Thanks, Noel.

There's a new download which seems to work fine now.

Thanks, for explaination.

I thought as much.

I was just checking since the previous build didn't have it.

Hm, I don't seem to see any sensitivity to the ColorizationColorInactive setting.

 

But it's okay, I have a livable desktop now through manipulations in my FauxBordersRoundedCorners.png theme atlas file. 

 

Big Muscle, I'd call your implementation a real success (and still sorely needed).  I can tell you this:  I will never adopt Windows 10 without being able to change the desktop appearance as I am able to do with Aero Glass.

 

Have you decided what to call it?  Just "Aero Glass for Windows" maybe?  Have you considered turning it into a real commercial product?

Just to let you know latest beta ******3155 is now working properly in both win 8.1.1 and /win 10 9879. Good job fixing the aerohost problem bigmuscle :)

After dealing with an Avast antivirus compatibility issue, I can happily report that Aero Glass is working with Windows 8.1.2, which is what I'm calling Windows 8.1 with KB3000850 (the optional November Rollup).

 

Note that new symbols were downloaded automatically, so users who don't have a donation.key should be aware that they'll have to download the new symbols themselves.

It adds more work to me... public beta will require symbol downloading, but I need to incorporate new patterns in final release.

okay that will obviously make it harder for a public beta, I just thought, include a link and we have it.

 

good luck on finishing that.

Unfortunately, Microsoft is all about doing that lately.

I have updated to KB3000850 and find a problem.

If I reboot my computer, everything goes well.

If I shut down then boot my computer, aero glass works but atlas resource not open automatically(but in debug.log it displays "Atlas resource loading (custom: C:\AeroGlass\win8rp.png)").

Then If I restart dwm.exe, it works fine.

 

So, now every time I boot my computer, I have to restart dwm.exe myself. It's troublesome :-(

 

Please forgive my bad English...

 

This is my debug.log(in this zip file): Attached File  debug.zip   2.48KB   2 downloads
