Hello everyone.

 

I am trying to get Aero Glass for Windows 8.1 and I am completely confused...

 

I have been trying for months and have probably read through the guide about 1000 times. I only download the version for Windows 8.1 and when I download it, it always says that I don't have the correct symbols or whatever and that my DWM is incompatible.

 

After I exit that annoying window, my windows are buggy so I have to uninstall the program once again. It's really frustrating.

 

So, my reason for making a post, is to ask anyone for help. The guide says some things about registry editing and I have no clue on how to do that. So if anyone can comment a full, like, step-by-step tutorial on how to do that, it would be much appreciated because I cannot do this on my own obviously.  :no:

 

Thank you very much for your help. The link to the website is http://www.glass8.eu/ and the guide link is http://www.glass8.eu/guide.html

I don't want to put you down at all :), really, but the FIRST part of the:

Can anyone install this software on his computer?
This library is intended for advanced users only. 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. Also, this guide counts that you are advanced user and explains several things in technical language

.
it is simply "incompatible" with your declaration:

It is not anything particularly difficult/complex, but you have first to get familiar with the procedures.

 

Additionally (and unfortunately) there are at the moment several reports of "generic" issues with MS servers (or with Windows Updates or both), so that a lot of people, also those that know how to do it, are having issues in downloading symbols, see the "main" thread:

http://www.msfn.org/...-125/?p=1089433

 

 

You may want to wait a few days, until the current situation is clear (or clearer), and use this time to learn a bit about Registry editing.

 

Downloading manually the symbols can be tricky, but the queation is common enough:

and has been already explained in detail:

http://www.msfn.org/...16#entry1058721

 

If you have issues in following the above, no offence intended, rest assured :), but you are simply not ready (yet) for using this tool (which is anyway "experimental" and likely to be subject to issues at each change the good MS guys make with their updates).
