Fantastic program! Since this hooks into DWM.. Could this be utilized as a way to TURN OFF DWM while temporarily running an application, as in Windows 7? For example, an old copy of Macromedia Flash that I use (version 6, that has the best brush engine.. before Adobe bought them and screwed it up!) runs perfectly in Windows 7, but only when the "disable desktop composition" property is marked in advanced compatibility properties. ( Flash 6 - MX works in Win7, but when double clicking a symbol to edit it.. the glass DWM effect interferes with Flash's vector graphics computation, and results in extremely laggy performance when editing symbols in Flash) It also works similarly in Windows 8, however the ability to turn off DWM isn't present, so it breaks working in my favorite old app. I know that one can kill dwm using process explorer, as detailed here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2174898 But it seems that using this app, one could automate that process, and bring a much needed feature back to Windows 8! Possible? Thanks!
