  1. Yep. Even though I had Update 1 already, another update came out that bumped the version up to 17041 up from the previous 17031. After rebooting, the CMD window for dwm.exe showed and I just closed it. Hasn't shown up again since.
  2. And it's not really the devs fault as Windows Style Builder hasn't been updated to support compiling update 1 themes. BTW I did that method to get glow on the default theme and it works great, thanks ace2! It IS the devs fault. I have multiple themes that work perfectly fine with Update 1 with all functionality. It has nothing to do with WSB being updated. Try that Longhorn theme I linked. It works with Update 1 completely.
  3. None of those themes are Windows 8.1 Update 1 ready, Ace2. Hardly any themes have been updated to work properly. Animations are messed up in Metro apps and no context menu on tiles in the Start Screen.
  4. Its on the guide, bud. http://glass8.berlios.de/guide.html <--- The regedit chart at the bottom. TextGlowMode. Its good to use a theme that can provide all the glow. I use 0x3. AH, gotcha, so basically I have to wait for 8.1 Update 1 compatible themes that support glow. (8.1 themes don't support context menus on the update 1 start screen) Exactly. The Longhorn theme works great with glow and the context menus. I helped the person who made the port test it to iron out as many bugs as we could find. Works great. http://www.deviantart.com/art/Longhorn-Evolution-8-1-version-4-5-14-444468395

  6. Are y'all slow or something? You dont need regedits to get this to work with Update 1. Its very simple. 1. If you've donated, put your donation key in the folder you are going to install AeroGlass to. Symbols probably still wont download automatically, but I didnt try. I just downloaded the symbols manually. If you havent donated, then skip this step. 2. If you don't have the symbols already, then use the symbols.cmd thats been mentioned here before along with the 8.1 SDK to download the symbols to the AeroGlass folder. The code for the symbols.cmd is below. If you cant figure out how to use this, then you shouldn't be trying to use AeroGlass anyway. MKDIR %userprofile%\appdata\local\temp\dllsCD C:\Windows\System32XCOPY "dwm.exe" %userprofile%\appdata\local\temp\dllsXCOPY "dwmcore.dll" %userprofile%\appdata\local\temp\dllsXCOPY "uDWM.dll" %userprofile%\appdata\local\temp\dllsCD C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\8.1\Debuggers\x64SYMCHK /r %userprofile%\appdata\local\temp\dlls /s SRV*C:\AeroGlass\symbols\*http://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbolsRD /S /Q "%userprofile%\appdata\local\temp\dlls"3. THEN install AeroGlass and it will work perfectly fine. This is exactly what I did and its worked exactly as it should ever since.
  7. Got Symbols downloaded manually and AeroGlass is working perfect. Probably have to insert your donation key before installing AeroGlass so the symbols will download. I did them manually and its working perfect.
  8. Welcome to the "dark side" so to speak lol. Glad to hear you have it working. I'll be awaiting the DWM symbols from MS so we can get Aero back.
  9. So what you're saying basically is that this version of AeroGlass would work on Update 1 if we had the symbols?
  10. LOL. Yeah. Laugh after seeing all the "Security update for Windows" updates in your update history.
  11. Lol @ people "skipping the update" because it doesnt have much new/changed. Unless you've actually used it, stay silent. Those who have used it notice a lot of changes. 1. Power & search on start screen 2. Right click on tiles for desktop users 3. Minimize/close apps in the top right corner 4. Show Win8 apps on the taskbar 5. Desktop control panel link from PC Settings 6. Changes to the all apps view in Start 7. Show the taskbar while in Windows 8 apps using Winkey + T There are plenty more under the hood changes as well like smaller system requirements, better memory management, etc. So, yeah. Go ahead and "skip" it, sheeple. The rest of us will move on with keeping our OS fast, reliable, and secure. @BM: Check yaself. No one here is innocent of stealing anything, especially on the internet. Music, movies, TV shows, software, Windows, etc. Unless your slate is clean, don't throw stones. I will wait for your update to Aero Glass for 8.1.1 like we all know you will do.
  12. Lmfao. Yeah Noel, you could stand to relax a little bit. This update that I and quite a few other people received were on MS's own servers. Just as Chris123NT pointed out. download.windowsupdate.com. The files are, in fact, STILL there if you care to look around and follow any forums discussing it. The MDL forum has a big discussion about it. What I choose to do with MY PC is up to me and only me. If I choose to install a leaked update provided on Microsoft's servers, then I will do so. I paid for my copy of Windows 8.1 Pro with Media Center. Service packs have never been charged for and never will be. There is no "stealing" here. The update, published to the world or not, is still free. Also, the "bug" link that was given saying that the modern apps being closed go back to desktop regardless of the setting is fine with me. I'm on a desktop. I want my screen to go back to the desktop when I close an app. As for AeroGlass, this project itself is breaking down and modifying Microsoft code to provide something they took away. You're not here bashing this project because it provides something you want. So, you can feel free to drop the righteous "i've never stolen anything in my life" attitude. You're in the wrong place for it.
  13. Yeah, I uninstalled AeroGlass before installing 8.1 Update 1. Also, most third party themes that I tried dont work properly on the start screen. For example, right clicking on tiles should bring up a context menu. Only works for the default theme. I like the way you think, jaclaz. Those of you who are running "leaked" software: You have no idea who's added what to it. Do you think that you're safe running such software? You do understand that what you're doing is illegal, right? -Noel I have to say I disagree with that whole statement about the leaked software. 1. The software hasnt had anything "added" to it except what MS themselves put in it because the leaked builds were on Microsoft's Windows Update servers shortly before they were pulled and are now mirrored everywhere. 2. None of this is "illegal." Its an update. To people like myself that have purchased Windows 8.1, this update is free. Nothing is being stolen. If anything, its against Microsoft's End User License Agreement that you, and I, haven't actually read. As for safe, I've been running it for about 4 hours now and everything is running smoothly. All the features in the leaked Escrow build are working just fine on my production machine. The only thing making this incomplete is the Aero Glass and updated themes to support the new features. Relax, Noel. MS software is leaked all the time from MS themselves. Who do you think discovered the "hacked" registry key?
  14. People wouldnt give sarcastic, elitist answers if people just searched first instead of asking. In fact, if you did do any searching and have followed this project as much as you say you do, then you would know that all the registry entries and what to use to change them is listed right on BigMuscle's website right here: http://glass8.berlios.de/guide.html So, please. Dont come on here asking for help on how to use a software thats not meant for everyday users and then get upset when someone gives you a slightly sarcastic, yet direct answer that you could have found yourself. Be the miracle.
  15. Hi raiden89! Can you tell me how to use the theme 8 plus? I found it in http://froggz19.devi...s-8-1-402231766 . I'm using the theme and Aero Glass for Windows 8.1 with TextGlowMode set to 0x3. But still no window has caption text glow effect. Thank you very much! I would use MrGrim's aero glass configurator. I use that to adjust the text glow mode. If you google that program, you should find it. The latest version works with Aero Glass 1.2. I have the glass. Also, make sure that you arent running on battery or you have the option to disable glass on battery disabled.
  16. Even when running Chrome, my aerohost usage is not high. Highest I see it go is 0.13% My total uptime is 19 hours, 48 minutes and aerohost's total cpu time is 2 minutes, 24 seconds. I'm perfectly fine with that.
  17. You have to use a theme atlas that supports glow or you have to use a theme that supports glow in all windows. I use the 8 Plus theme from dA and have glow everywhere.
  18. I can confirm as well that AeroGlass is working perfect after February 11th's updates. Only thing I'm hoping now is we get AG working for Update 1 around the time it comes out and that the developers of AeroRainbow will update that program so I can have my changing colors without removing blur.
  19. Lol no one said it was true. However, Winbeta is not in the habit of posting lies. If they believe its a rumor, then they will plainly state to "take it with a grain of salt." Whether they are going to bring blur back wont be for sure until we get the final build and see if its been put back in. It does seem pretty out there for them to be re-adding it back in after they seemed pretty adamant about removing it. According to the comments, it kinda appears that Winbeta might not have known about this particular trick. Its the same registry key used in previous builds of Win8. Oh well, we'll know in a month or two. Most likely not gonna happen tho.
  20. Check this out...looks like MS might be putting you outta business soon BigMuscle. http://www.winbeta.org/news/aero-glass-can-be-enabled-recently-leaked-build-windows-81-update-1 Hopefully, it'll be just as stable as this amazing project has been.
  21. I did have mine license.key and it worked fine, but I renamed it simply because he mentioned that it should be named that from now on....even though both work. O_o
  22. donation.key is what it should be named. Also, show file extensions to make sure there's not another extension at the end of it.
