  1. [OLD] Aero Glass for Win8.1+

    I had a lot of problems with this version of glass, it was causing dcom errors that were causing crucial services not to start (Event ID 10005). I know it wasn't caused by anything else as it only started happening after I installed glass, and it went away when I uninstalled it.
  2. Aero Glass for Win8 1.3

    The error I had is this. As I had a second key I didn't need I won't bother going to the trouble of getting the key reset for now but here's the diagnostic info if it will help you figure out what happened Old machine code was

    Sorry if this makes it sound like I don't appreciate the hard work done with AG, but the method used to verify a license is utterly ridiculous. I upgraded my Intel RST drivers and now for some reason the utility appears to have given me a totally different machine code. It would make a lot more sense if the code was generated using the physical identification number of a hard drive, something that is not prone to changing across fresh installations and driver upgrades. I understand you need some compensation for your product but this is ridiculous.

    If you have the swatches already installed from the beta version and select to add them when you install the final they appear twice in the customisation panel

    When you say the activation code is generated by your HDD number, do you mean the VSN (volume serial number) or the physical serial number of the drive?
  6. Aero Glass for Win8 RC4

    No issues here either
  7. Start Is Back - 2.1 release

    This is a known bug that goes all way back to the very first days of MSE after Microsoft acquired the company that made it originally, and affects folders with a large amount of executables in them. My guess is that it's on demand scanner isn't very clever and scans them as the system opens access to the EXE to retrieve it's icon, which causes the lag in displaying the icons. This bug has nothing whatsoever to do with SIB. It's been reported and Microsoft have done sod all to fix it.
  8. Aero Glass for Win8.1 RTM RC3

    I know, I just want to know why it keeps running with that message
  9. Aero Glass for Win8.1 RTM RC3

    Well it's certainly trying to do something because I run the EXE and it just leaves this window running
  10. Aero Glass for Win8.1 RTM RC3

    How long is the time limit, also the DWM symbols appear to be unable to download.
  11. Aero Glass for Win8 RC4

    Replicated, none of my screensavers are available either
  12. Start Is Back - 2.1 release

    It's very disappointing to hear that they've purposely gimped it to make the start apps impossible to use. Screw you, Microsoft

    Down here too
  14. Longhorn 5060

    Wow, this was a blast from the past. I remember seeing the flapping notepad window at the time and thinking it was really cool and hoping the build would leak. It would be interesting to have a play about with it and see DWM when it was in it's infancy but I doubt it's going to ever leak.
