  1. Yes I tried it on 2 of my machines. It gives the incompatible DWM version message on every startup. Seems to kinda work but the box on startup was annoying so I disabled it for now until an official update is released.
  2. @bigmuscle I noticed in this build and previous ones on apps like the People Bar, MS Edge, etc that are using the Dark theme will also show the caption buttons as black. They dont stand out and the only way to see them clearly is to hover over them or click the titlebar. Would there be any way to fix that or is that just part of the dark theme itself?
  3. My topic on what Im about to say was deleted but AG is going to be obsolete if Fluent Design keeps going in the direction its going in. Its good and bad news for Bigmuscle. Good news that he wont have to continue making late releases for officially released operating systems and wont have to deal with the nagging Bad news that he will start to get a lot less income as this becomes less and less of a useful tool
  4. I think MS is going in a good direction with the Fluent Design. It looks real nice but not having anything on the titlebars makes it very inconsistent. I'm hoping that we'll finally get that with RS4 since we are already starting to see more elements show up in the start menu, etc.
  5. Yeah the interference that AG plays with fluent design was why I stopped using it. I like fluent design a lot and the only thing we're missing is it being applied to titlebars. I can only hope that RS4 will give us that since they've stated that more fluent design elements are coming.
  6. For now, yeah. But there is no saying that they cant implement this for the entire OS at some point. It would be awfully inconsistent to keep flat colors on some windows and fluent on apps. That would be silly. Even Microsoft Edge is going to get the fluent design soon. I would hope Microsoft would not be that dumb...plus File Explorer is getting a UWP app too which who knows? That could be the thing to replace the file explorer we've all been used to for decades.
  7. Lol...just wait for RS3 that will have a ton of the UI redone with Fluent Design/Project Neon. With any luck, we wont need 3rd party apps for transparency again. No dig to you, BM. You've done a great job with this project, it would just be nice to have native functionality.
  8. NoelC is paranoid with a tinfoil hat lmao. I dont even know why you would bother posting that, especially when its not supported by BM yet, as he's stated multiple times in this thread.
  9. Lol waiting to install a major OS upgrade so one third-party software, that's still got bugs that won't be fixed, will work. I'm good. I'll take new features and fixes over blurred Windows. If you dont want to wait, use WindowBlinds. Its not free, but it works.
  10. I think you fail to see where the actual bug is...and I can even get a screenshot if you like but with Aero Glass enabled, there is no close/minimize/maximize buttons in full-screen UWP apps. The buttons disappear completely. The top right of the bar will be empty. Nothing to click on. I am not sure how else to describe it, but when a UWP gets full-screened, you cant get out of it without going to the taskbar, right clicking and trying to restore/close it. While it may not be a "showstopping" bug, its still something that prevents me from using AG. Too much of an inconvenience.
  11. Lol all this discussion about 15063... Just wait until RS3 with Project Neon. It will probably be all the "glass" we need from what's been shown in current fast ring apps (groove, movies & tv, etc) and other screenshots that have leaked.
  12. Yeah thats kinda what I figured. This was just an example. For me, this is a showstopping issue. Xbox is a big app for me and I cant use Aero Glass if I cant even resize windows properly. I mentioned this at least a month ago and there was no response it whatsoever, so if y'all could help draw attention to this, that would be great. BigMuscle needs to know its an issue so it can be fixed. Right now its just being passed over.
  13. Does this build fix the bug I reported earlier in this thread with modern apps that have full-screen like Xbox? If you start streaming in that app, it goes to full-screen automatically. Aero Glass removes the caption buttons so you cant close, minimize, or exit full-screen.
  14. Bumping this. Something that could be looked at or someone tell me if this is happening to them in any modern apps that have a full screen mode.
  15. Okay so I did get Aero Glass working. Apparently uninstalling does not remove the registry keys that were added. So thats working. There is ONE thing I noticed with the modernframes though...When using the Xbox App to stream from Windows 10, the app is automatically switched to full-screen mode. However, when this happens, the minimize/restore/close buttons disappear and there is no way to restore it to window size. Is this something that could be fixed?
  16. Using the default theme, no others. Ive uninstalled completely, checked my reg settings and even checked the GUI program for anything like a high blur radius, etc. I kept the blur slider at like 3. It just simply wont apply. Ive unregistered/re-registered the dll file, restarted, etc. If anyone else has any suggestions, please chime in. For some reason, I cant use this at all now and cant see why. Debug log is less than helpful.
  17. Bumping again. Dont want to make a new thread for an issue related to these builds.
  18. Not quite sure what Im doing wrong here lol. Aerohost is running, DWMGlass is registered and yet...there is no glass being applied anywhere. Ive restarted as well. I feel like I'm missing something simple. On 1.5.2 and debug log doesnt show anything in particular...

  19. Not a crime but very offtopic for half of his post...for example... "So here you are, wanting to add desktop elegance your operating system that Microsoft absolutely doesn't want you to have. Did you REALLY want someone else to tell you what you're allowed to run on your system?" Another snide comment towards Microsoft in a thread completely unrelated. This isnt a "bash windows 10/microsoft because they wont let you run what you want on their OS" thread.
  20. This post is 100% completely unnecessary. It's offtopic and more Microsoft bashing. Please take it elsewhere or a moderator will need to be involved. Its cancerous.
  21. RequireSignedAppInit_DLLs is set to 0. Even if it is just me that has come forward with the issue, I cant use it in its current state. Every single machine and installation is different. Every hardware chip is different than the one next to it. Its very possible to have problems for 1 or some and not for anyone else. I will try it again when another version is released. For now, it will have to stay disabled.
  22. Yes I've used the ModernFrame before so I know how the AppInit DLLs work. I was using that back when AG had to be loaded that way. Trust me, I make a living fixing peoples' computer problems. I didn't make it to a Level 2 by being a novice. AppInit_DLLs has C:\AeroGlass\ModernFrame.dll (Yes, I renamed his release version to just ModernFrame.dll) and LoadAppInit_DLLs was set to 1. It's not anymore since I've turned it off until it's fixed. Thanks for the offer, but I know this isnt my issue.
  23. Eh its all good. It'll either be fixed or it won't. I don't *need* this tool in order to enjoy using my computer. It just adds a bit more customization. While MS made it inconsistent to put blur/transparency on everything else but Windows, I've gotten used to it and with OldNewExplorer removing the ribbon and giving me more color in the titlebars, I'm pretty happy. This is just an awesome thing to have and will keep trying newer versions as they come out.
  24. Yeah I dont know what to tell ya man. Start up was fine before I loaded the ModernFrame and it was fine again after I unloaded it. Ive restarted multiple times in the past few days and the only time it took longer to start than usual is when the ModernFrame was loaded. When I use Aero Glass without the ModernFrame, then startup is also normal. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Is what it is. Can dispute it all you want but I know my machine that I built myself and I know when something isn't right.
