By looking how much vram is used in total, then closing aerohost and dwm so it doesn't re-launch and looking at the vram usage again. 

There was 2.57 GB of vram being used with only chrome and visual studio open, after closing aerohost and re-launching dwm it was only 672 MB. 

Using nvidia surround at 3240x1920 resolution, not sure if it's related to that. 

 

At such resolution, it should take around 30 MB VRAM, but I'm not sure what nVidia surround is. If it is several displays where each one has 3240x1920 then you need to multiply standard memory usage by the number of displays.

EDIT: when the VRAM usage goes high again, could you create minidump and upload it? I will check whether the resource manager does not allocate some unnecessary resources.

Okay, will do. 

It's 3 1920*1080 monitors in portrait by the way 

 

Edit: a dump of aerohost or dwm? the dwm one is quite large (4GB)

Also, it seems to allocate more vram each time I vertically resize a window. 

 

Here's the aerohost one: https://db.tt/nLU0YLOr

Minidump of dwm.exe is needed. Aerohost does nothing except of injecting DLL into DWM and reading user's settings from registry. Just ZIP the file to shrink the size.

ok, will take a while to upload though. 

Edit: didn't think it would compress this well... It went down to 30 MB from 2GB lol.

Big Muscle, I will suggest that in the stable version, u make transparent start menu as shown in the pic on ur site to be such that when a user installs your software then when aero is enabled, start menu transparency is also enabled. My last post on MSFN. Bye.
