Aero Glass GUI

133 posts in this topic

I jut realized that running the latest Aero Glass GUI tool on recent updates to Win 10 build 14393 is chalking up Explorer crashes...

What I see is the desktop go blank/blue briefly when making changes to settings in the tool.  I thought maybe it was a new feature to cause everything to be updated after a color or opacity change.

Nothing special seems to be logged in the Aero Glass debug.log at the crash times...

The only other special thing is that I have is the UxTSB64 and 32 DLLs and I am using Sagorpirbd's Aero7 theme for Win 10.

I've seen some strange Explorer crashes in the past. Sometimes it still happens, but I have no clue what causes it. The crash log doesn't indicate the module where it crashes. If I understand correctly, it's due to stack buffer overrun or something along those lines. It happens randomly for me, but not when messing around with Aero Glass GUI tool.

Edit: I had this problem on a daily basis with previous Windows build. Upgrading to Anniversary Update hasn't solved it. Then one day, I cleaned my graphics drivers with DDU after upgrading to newer ones which worked really badly, reinstalled the older version and the crashes seem to have stopped, only after couple of weeks did a random crash occur again. I really don't know what to think of it.

I always have latest Aero Glass, UX Theme Signature Bypass DLL, OldNewExplorer and Classic Shell installed.

win 10 1607 - 14393.351

I can't confirm issue. My reliability monitor indicates 1 Windows Explorer event on 10-09-2016 since 10-02-2016 when I first started using the newest GUI. I experience nothing unusual while making adjustments with the GUI. I don't use any theme patches.

Thanks.

Well, for what it's worth that problem has vanished diminished when I put the latest non-AppInit_DLLs experimental components in place.  I'm still getting Explorer problems if I cause the Theme Atlas to reload.

I uploaded my current build of Aero Glass utility. I'm not even sure whether it works correctly, but there are two different tabs now - Glass colors for Win8.1/10TH and Accent for Win10RS. It currently shows always both tabs, later I will show only the useful one.

Additionaly, it allows you to export atlas image/layout for the current windows theme.

That link is not working anymore

Look in the .7z available from the link near the bottom of his main site:

http://www.glass8.eu/download

(If your browser doesn't do the right thing by just clicking the above) right-click and Save Target As, and remember to put in the .7z file extension.  Then open the file with 7Zip.

Or you can just click on the link, and it will download all by itself. :)

It depends on the browser you choose to use.  What I said is still valid for IE.  Big Muscle's site still doesn't actually set the proper mime type for .7z files.

Interesting.  I use Chrome of course, and it downloads as a .7z file.  I open it with WinRAR, and extract.  Actually, I just right-click, and choose to extract.  I do have a portable copy of 7zip, but I find it troublesome to use.

Out of curiosity, why "Chrome of course"?  From what I can see IE still has the best, most configurable security model - it's just not configured very well out of the box.

IE?  That is not even supported any more.  I say Chrome of course because in my opinion it is the most intuitive, fastest, easiest to use browser out there.  I install a new OS at least once a week, and sometimes more for testing purposes.  All I need do is run the installer, and the latest, greatest Chrome is installed.  I then sign in, and all my extensions, bookmarks, passwords, everything are all there ready for me to use as if it were not even a new install.  It is just simply awesome.  Believe me, I have tested others, and found them all lacking.  The only one with potential is Edge, but it is not a finished product yet.  It is getting there though.

Of course IE is still supported.  It'll be supported as long as the operating systems it was released with.  See item 5 here:  https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/17454/lifecycle-support-policy-faq-internet-explorer

It looks like again, we just have differing expectations.  I respect your choice; it may make more sense with Win 10.

OK, you are right.  IE will continue to receive security updates, but IE 11 is the last version there will be.
