    No mail after donation

    It sometimes takes a while for PayPal to propagate its information to our server, so please be patient if you don't get any e-mail immediately after your donation.

    Feature request for aero glass

    Yes. If you use installer, it provides you an option to select which mode to use. If you install manually, then Accent mode is used by default (with opacity = 4).

    Feature request for aero glass

    To have acrylic effect, you must configure it on your own: http://glass8.eu/out/changelogRS2.txt Acrylic effect is nothing more then blurred background + transparent color over it + transparent noise texture over it.

    invalid signature donation key

    No, I checked the database and the donation key from your debug.log has been generated for different machine code.

    Bug in disabling aeroglass on battery

    You are right, there seems to be bug. However, it seems that the stability fixes introduced in the most recent beta version address this issue too.

    invalid signature donation key

    Donation key is valid only for the computer configuration which it has been generated for.

    The exception information can be logged in event log, but it probably contains only value 0x8000FFFF, because the code just calls ModuleFailFastForHRESULT(0x8000FFFF) in this situation. As to debugging, if I use virtual machine, I can connect remote debugger to it and debug the assembly normally as any other application. But for local debugging, I can use only printf logs (or dump file for crashes), because attaching the debugger to DWM stops the desktop rendering .

    The exception code probably means nothing special. Whenever any function returns HRESULT different from S_OK, DWM throws the exception with this code. The most important is the exception structure member "ExceptionInformation" which contains HRESULT value.

    DWM crashes with this code are not Aero Glass related. It probably happens when video adapter driver is disconnected and it randomly happens even without Aero Glass for a few last Win10 builds (but it is probably less noticable without Aero Glass which has some delay when it tries to generate minidump file on crash). About Fast Startup problem.. yes, there is some problem that Win10 behaves inconsistently between normal and fast startup. In fact, Win10 "Fast Startup" feature is one of the most buggy thing in Win10 and it is responsible for many "random" problems. For this reason, I disable it on every installation. As a workaround for current build, you could set this registry value: HKLM/SOFTWARE/Microsoft/Windows/DWM - DWORD GeometryCommand value set to 0x1cc.

    No mail after donation

    The mail with instructions was send to your e-mail address, but it returned that the mailbox is inaccessible. Sorry, but I cannot be responsible when someone specifies invalid e-mail address. In any case, you can always read and follow the instructions in the local topic "READ FIRST".

    It crashes with certain video drivers only, I already have a fix, but I didn't have time to make it ready it yet.
  12. Your password is attached in the e-mail only when it is your first donation. If it is not the first donation, the password is not there because it is not stored anywhere. You can always log in using your postal code from your PayPal or request new password from the link at the login page.

    Do you use default Aero Glass theme or some specific theme?
  14. bigmuscle


    Just try ;-)

    Please, could you test how this build behaves? http://glass8.eu/out/rs5_17763_1564_x64dbg.7z
