  1. Aero Glass Windows 10 Hyper-V

    Please, could you run this tool before and after enabling Hyper-V and send me its output via PM: http://glass8.eu/out/LicensingTool.zip
  2. I think this is common problem with the console window, it happens even with ApplicationFrame console (it locks the UWP apps until you cancel the selection in the console). The selection mode just locks the thread and waits for the user input (or to finish the selection), but it can result in other threads waiting for this console's thread to unlock.
  3. I'm not sure if it is same problem, but Aero Glass GUI had some problem with setting inactive frame color correctly. I've started to completely rewrite it, but the problem is more complicated than I expected. I'd rather recommend to change the inactive color directly in registry under HKCU\...\DWM key. - AccentColorInactive for the top caption - ColorizationColorInactive for the sides and bottom
  4. The key does not work (aero glass)

    please, provide your debug.log, it contains the reason.
  5. I referenced to the last question in the guide, which covers your question.
  6. Phenix: read the last Q&A here http://glass8.eu/guide
  7. If someone installs the Aero Glass into Program Files, it is only his problem that it is not able to download and store the symbols. It has been said milliontimes that it mustn't be installed there and even the guide mentions "Important thing is that you must place all files in writable location (i.e. not in Program Files),, because DWM process does not run under user's credential. If you don't do this, Aero Glass will not be able to download symbols". Also the note about debug.log "if the verbose logging is enabled" was not probably too bold and underlined.
  8. I think that I already wrote it some time ago, but the Microsoft implementation of the symbol downloading (symsrv.dll) has the bug if the download fails once for whatever reason (mostly internet connection failure), it will fail forever even the reason has already gone away. Thus I recommend to delete "Symbols" folder and try again... especially if there is download.error file somewhere. Also, the real reason of the failure can be found in debug.log if the verbose logging is enabled.
  9. Thank you for AeroGlass  v.1.5.7, it works very nice on my machine with Windows 10 Pro 1709, 16299.192, 64-bit.

    Only one thing is annoying - when Windows starts and AeroGlass is loading, a small window pop-up with "Incompatibility issue" Repeatedly clicking on the button "Znova" solves nothing.

    I thought, sponsored version can automatically download missing symbols, but it does not. Please, can you look at this problem and solve it?

    Thank you,




  10. Fine, I was able to reproduce the problem using the remote desktop, so let see if it helps to fix it
  11. It is Firefox bug that it does not accept system settings but always tries to imitate Win10 UWP appearance. You can tweak this behaviour by userChrome.css file, but the result will never be 100% correct. Example can be found here: https://github.com/Aris-t2/CustomCSSforFx
  12. Update to 16299.192 screws up aeroglass

    Yes, these versions should be correct if you have 64-bit versions of both DLLs. The exact reason of symbol failure can be found in debug.log if verbose logging is enabled.
  13. Update to 16299.192 screws up aeroglass

    Do you have correct symsrv.dll and dbghelp.dll?
  14. I would help and fix it but I don't see such issue on any of my computers. Does it happen in some specific situation? Multiple windows, UWP app window in way or something special?
  15. And? Does it say anywhere that it should happen? That Aero Glass should load something into control panel? You are free to fix it, but I understand that it is much easier to complain about other's work. Sure... really "many bugs" Again, you are free to do it :-P It was dropped to make a room for you to do it. Now, you have a chance to do better Aero Glass than me. This project was never meant to be profitable. But you should start working on your own Aero Glass now, so it is ready when I leave the project. But no, you will not do it, because you rather complain about other's work. If I leave, you will complain and then you move to some another project to complain...
