Just updated from win8.1 1.2 to 1.3.1.

But after installation the screen started to flash and then gives me a black screen.

I restarted my laptop and the computer lags like crazy, and still flashes.

Any help plz?

Hold the Control key down to avoid having Aero Glass install.  Does the problem persist?

 

 

Thanks for the tip, but I'm trying to avoid a full blown theme.  Just want the basic Glass that bigmuscle is providing here, and if RoundRectRadius can't be made to work in 8.1 then c'est la vie. :}

 

Yeah, I prefer drop shadows, rounded corners, and not to use a full blown theme as well.  Fortunately, Big Muscle's software facilitates replacement of the theme atlas resources, and through that and crafty manipulation of the drop shadow resources that are composited all around a window you can achieve the appearance of small rounded corners.

 

On Win 8.1 this is the dream I'm living - simple and easier on the eyes.  I also reduce the size of the Window chrome by importing a registry key saved from a Win 7 system on which the sizes of several elements were reduced.

Use this replacement theme atlas file, which adds the appearance of rounded corners through a trick of the light using the drop shadow resources...

Here's the registry key data:

You may also want to manipulate the colors Aero Glass uses by changing registry entries or through Big Muscle's GUI Tool.  I wish Big Muscle would release a completed version of it, but this beta one he released before does actually work, and can make changing the colors and transparency to your liking easier:

but you shouldnt instruct ppl who dont know much about the registry, to wander around there...

Well  hopefully the OP read Big Muscles instructions before downloading Aero Glass! Quote: "If you are a beginner and you do not have at least basic system knowledge of Windows (such as registry editing etc.) you should not install this software."

9888 will not be supported at all bg has already said

 

Really, why 9879 and not 9888, because it's a LEAK? Of course it's not supported, no symbols available!

because 9888 is (or was) just a leaked build which does (or did) not come over Windows Update.

Sorry everyone i was mistaken. The problem is not aero... I think it is my Task Scheduler...  I made a new topic about it, so, if anybody knows a fix for this, please reply there. Thanks!

Well you could do a system repair or reinstall, but check your pm and try that, then let me know if it works..

Well you could do a hibernation, which turns the pc off but saves the state it was in. But if you have am ssd it would be bad, because of the writing cycles...

Maybe disableing fast shutdown could help your problem

hibernation doesn't cause any wear and tear to SSD. I been told by a computer shop that SSD can do everything that a HDD can

OK, now moving on.. For those of us that have been with this thread from day 1  Big Muscle had a machine ID generator app that would read out the Hardware ID for specific drive, For the life of me I cant seem to find my copy anymore but if anyone has it please let me know.

Thanks, ~DP

 

Edit: Ok after a lot of searching on my different external drives I found the file! its called "HDDDetector.exe" and first mentioned with d/l over here => http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/170850-aero-glass-for-win81-125/page-44

You find your machine ID in the debug.log file in the aeroglass folder

Well of course I can check it from the debug, Which would mean I would have to Install Aero glass first to find my ID and not my preferred method when the generator will do it for me.

They can do the same but unlike an hddan ssd has limited life which is defined by how often the chips are written. And guess what happens at hibernation...

This is one of the common myths. Yes, SSDs have limited lifetime but even if you write it really heavily, this lifetime will be several tens of years.
