  1. Donation key was generated for different machine than you use it for.
  2. It will surely not work correctly if user bypasses the startup notification dialog.
  3. Feature requests

    If you mean "the latest Aero Glass release" = v1.5.8 then no. I already cleaned out all old code from it, so it won't work. Maybe it can fall back into always-glass mode (=all solid-solid color regions are blurred) without glass safety zones processing (=> glitches on dirty regions), but it will probably crash soon or later.
  4. Cannot install Aero Glass

    I'm not sure if it even works on Embedded edition of Windows.
  5. Feature requests

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to render on the coordinates of the window, because they are not known when blur effect is rendered. Only blur coordinates are known. In Win10, top of the frame and sides of the frame are rendered separately, so it will result in weird effect on the sides, but it may not be noticeable, because the sides are only a few pixels wide. The reflection is always rendered to the screen coordinates.
  6. Feature requests

    Could you send me the texture via PM ? Maybe I could add it as "Background texture" option - simple bitmap which would be stretched over the blurred region. But I cannot say how it will look in Win10, because the frame is not rendered as one area.
  7. Question about line in navigation area

    Unfortunately, you cannot - Win10 renders side and top frames separately and thus you will always see the border of the blur effect.
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. The key does not work (aero glass)

    please, provide your debug.log, it contains the reason.
  12. I referenced to the last question in the guide, which covers your question.
  13. Phenix: read the last Q&A here http://glass8.eu/guide
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
