  1. Aero Glass for Win8 1.3

    TESTing windows 8.1 "alpha" version. Did I misunderstand "Install like the windows 8 version" or is it just not working on my setup? (I installed and replaced files) I forgot/Don't know how to get the exact version of windows including updates and all. All I can get is the same for every RTM install.
  2. Aero Glass for Win8 RC4

    I'm not But making it possible to run on more machines will give more informations to work on from different setups, eventually leading to better compatibility.

    100$ is cheap for a signature that runs on every machine you put the thing on. there's some decoders that are 1500$ per year. Given bigmuscle's knowledge, I'm sure he can manage to afford it, given the time he's been working on this project, 10 bucks a month would do it. While I like the efforts put into this, and the promising results, I struggle to understand why someone can think about releasing a product using appInit_DLL... Especially if the said product might be a paid one. As far as I know, Stardock did it too, and they're using signed binaries. But eh. I'm just saying what I think. this is a forum, right? Forums are made to talk and share opinions.

    I think that more people would be interested and/or able to use your mod if you used another method than AppInit_DLL... Is there a reason why you stick to this frowned upon method? Last I checked, a signature by Microsoft is only 100 USD.
  5. Aero Glass for Win8 RC4

    Could you be kind enough to point me to that 1.3.3 version? I can't find it on the official thread...
  6. Aero Glass for Win8 RC4

    1.3.2 (latest)... AGT works fine usually... But the latest doesn't for me
  7. Aero Glass for Win8 RC4

    I wonder what's wrong with my AGTweaker then.. Because the transparency disappears when I apply. Also, DosProbie, your quoteblock is misformed

    I actually reset to factory install, and it still wasn't working, it has been confirmed already that there is a problem. Okay, let's review all this: it won't work on systems with SecureBoot enabledDon't use AGTweaker (see my post above)I'd recommend disabling Hybrid sleep, or sleep at all. (it gives me the unfixable "black screen" when I use sleep and aero glass)Sometimes, it breaks. Please provide logs if it does.

    I had the same problem. Here's how to fix it: Don't use the AGTweaker to load the DLL. Disable DWMGlass with the tweaker, reboot, go delete C:\Windows\DWMGlass.dll and C:\Windows\DWMGlass.png and use the "LoadGlass__AppInit_DLLs.reg" file from the 0.94RC3 archive (edit and fix the path, mine's ""AppInit_DLLs"="C:\\AeroGlass\\DWMGlass.dll"") to load it. Mine: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows]"LoadAppInit_DLLs"=dword:00000001"AppInit_DLLs"="C:\\AeroGlass\\DWMGlass.dll""RequireSignedAppInit_DLLs"=dword:00000000[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\DWM]CustomThemeResource"="C:\\AeroGlass\\CustomDefault.png" After I did that and rebooted, I got the command prompt that downloaded the symbols, and it worked. On a side note, AGTweaker seems broken for the 0.95RC4 release. It doesn't start the transparency when pressing apply. I guess I'll start using the custom resources with the registry tweak.

    But it does, i am testing server 2012 (not R2) since the start and i am using aero glass since about one month. Funny to see by the way a server edition with aero Interesting, so it is just side effect that 2012 server has the same DWM as Win8 RTM has :-) However, if anyone is interested to make this work on R2 too, he can provide dwmcore.dll and udwm.dll and I can see what could be done with that :-) It would be great if I managed to get my Intel network card to work witn server 2012 R2. I'm fighting with it since yesterday, lol. I can provide the DLLs, though. WinServ2012R2DWMDLL.zip
  12. Aero Glass for Win8 RC4

    In such case, post your debug.log (unless you've already post it and I overlooked it) and possibly minidump.dmp (for RC3 only). Maybe something causes crash or deadlock in your DWM. Sorry BM, I've been out of it lately. Will try RC3 and post the relevant stuff soon. EDIT: So far, it worked on the first try! I'm going to go stare at the changelog very hard...

    re @ "What hardware used" Maybe, that is the cause: http://support.micro...b/2850674/en-us? I don't think it's related. My windows does not freeze (I can hear skype/etc logging in, and power button works just fine to shut it down. pressing random keys gives the familiar bell. I just can't see what's happening since the screen is black. I also don't use sleep at all, my computer either run, or is restarting. or powered down. re-enabling UEFI secure boot makes windows boot just fine. it only happens when the DWMGlass DLL is loaded. I don't use custom theme (regular windows 8 theme, no uXpatch) (is it required?)
  14. Aero Glass for Win8 RC4

    Noone has a clue about fixing this black screen issue? re-installing again without knowing what causes it is out of question.
  15. Aero Glass for Win8 RC4

    I have an UEFI bios with disable-able secure boot, so I can turn that on and negate any DLL inject. but yeah. Not everyone can do that.
