Jonny, I'm trying what you described in a fully updated Win 8.1 Pro virtual machine on which an Aero Glass for Win 8.1 donation key is in use.

 

Before the DISM command, C:\Windows and all subfolders had:

 

124,860 files in 21,959 folders, size 21.4 GB.

 

After the DISM command:

 

99,497 files in 21,011 folders, size 20.1 GB

 

I had no problem at all with Aero Glass for Win 8.1.  I saw no pop-up after a reboot and it functions fine.

 

My conclusion:  Resetting the base with DISM does not disrupt the functioning of Aero Glass for Win 8.1.  Something else is wrong.

Installed Aero Glass for Windows 8.1 V1.2.5 yesterday. I've rebooted several times since then, but just now when I rebooted I had this Command Prompt window on the Desktop and it would not go away by itself, I had to close it.

 

Attached File  AeroGlass-DWM.jpg   56.8KB   4 downloads

 

Why am I getting this and what am I supposed to do with or about it?

Some of us saw that window once after the latest set of Windows Updates, then not again.  Try logging off/on and see that it doesn't return.

I'm bit on the slow side ...

 

I'm too having the pop up message about DWM been incompatible with aero glass.  Aero somewhat works ok with only some window headers flashing transparent and non transparent randomly.  Other than that everything seems fine.

 

Do the above posts mean I have to find older versions of dwmcore.dll and uDWM.dll and replace the current ones so aero glass can work correctly again?

I also had the same error. I uninstalled Aero Glass, rebooted then renamed the aero folder, in my case c:\aeroglass to 1aeroglass. Rebooted again, then reinstalled Aero Glass then the error stopped.

Try that in case it works for you.

Then you can delete the old Aero Glass folder providing if you have a donation key, you've copied that to the new install folder.

Nope, you just need to update the symbols. Donated version does it automatically, otherwise you must help on your own, it has been discussed many times in this topic.

I never had to do anything special; I've kept up with updates and the (donation key-activated) Aero Glass for Win 8.1 product just downloads the symbols itself from Microsoft online and works.

This is correct behaviour. Symbols were downloaded and window stays opened until you close it - just to inform you that something happened. Next time, it will open only when symbols need to be downloaded again.

This is wrong behaviour which should not happen and if it is bug then it should be fixed. However, the most common reason is that user installed some 3d party tweaks in the past, so symbols are downloaded but they cannot be stored/loaded etc. It is important to know that Aero Glass folder must be writable by Everyone (or at least by Windows Manager group). Also, dbghelp.dll and symsrv.dll files must be present in this folder.
 
The another reason for "DWM incompatibility error" is that donation key is not present in Aero Glass folder, e.g. Jonny5isalivetm's log:
 

[2014-09-18 03:23:39][0xFE8:0x858] Donation key not loaded (2 - The system cannot find the file specified.)
...
[2014-09-18 03:23:39][0xFE8:0xCEC] DWM incompatibility error 0x4

 

 

-------------------

And the last one, there are also some users who complain that my application is buggy because their cracked version does not download symbols correctly:
 

I'm glad I tired the cracked version 1st because I now see its not worth donating too. After windows update it broke it...

The most funny thing is that it was me who stated the following as a reaction to the crack:

 

 

when new incompatible Windows update is released, you will be the first one who starts crying that he needs a new crack

 

I advise you to use the crack and then come back later and complain and complain again that your cracked version does not work on updated OS.
