  1. Yeah, I tried WindowBlinds and hated it. Just bloatware crap that didn't look good to me at all. Windows 10 is extremely ugly without AeroGlass, but even uglier with WindowBlinds. I stopped using Stardock products back in the early Windows 8.X days. I don't really need or care about Windows security garbage updates, so I just stay on an older version of Windows 10 until AeroGlass support exists. I also still use Windows 7 and haven't used any Micro$lop updates for Windows 7 since probably 2014-2015.
  2. As much as I despise the look and feel (and performance downgrade) of every version of Windows 10, I found the Windows Blinds thing just didn't cut it for me. In fact, find all of Stardock's stuff is bloatware that isn't done well. Even Start10 is junk compared to StartIsBack, not to mention it is also overpriced. But, anyhoo, Window Blinds... I almost bought this piece of garbage a couple of weeks ago since it's not clear how much longer it will be until we have AeroGlass for Windoze OS X 2004, and OMG... so glad I did the trial first. It sucks. Removed it within a few hours after tinkering with it and hating it more the more I used it. And, then I tried Stardock Curtains and found it was equally a bloated and buggy piece of crap that make Windows 10 uglier-looking instead of better. There's just no substitute for AeroGlass and StartIsBack as far as I am concerned.
  3. Well said, bro. Windows 10 is a pile of $hit by any measurement. AeroGlass is the only thing that makes it tolerable as far as I am concerned. Nothing will ever make it a truly good product. The Redmond Retards are losers that have completely lost their way and couldn't find their a$$es using both hands. All they produce in garbage now. Their nonstop streak of failures started with Windows 8 and there is no end in sight to their stupidity.
  4. After you reboot, do you still see the error message about hooking DWM? The total transparency is how I set my systems up on purpose. I love how that looks. I do not care for the partial transparency or opaque/frosted look. I know some people do not like the title bar to be clear. If you download the AeroGlassGUI tool you can probably tweak it using that if you prefer opaque title bars. You can get that from the downloads page. Scroll down to Others and it is the link in the middle (shown in bold red below). https://www.glass8.eu/download DLL tool to bypass UXTheme signature verification - Windows 10 compatible (use AppInit_DLLs registry value to install) Testing version of GUI application to modify Aero Glass parameters Command line tool to change window's composition attributes (for very ADVANCED users only!)
  5. Works perfectly for me on 1909 already. And, there is a new version of AeroGlass for 1909. (Remember to remove the "s' after the http or you'll get an error (http NOT https) attempting to download. http://www.glass8.eu/files/setup-wrs-1.5.13.exe Thank you @bigmuscle. Another donation sent, as promised. Really appreciate your continued support, bro. Have a nice Christmas.
  6. SWEET! New version of AeroGlass is available now! WOOT! Thanks @bigmuscle. No more having to hit cancel for Windoze OS X v1909. Donation sent, as promised. I hope many others follow suit. (Remember to remove the "s' after the http or you'll get an error (http NOT https) attempting to download. http://www.glass8.eu/files/setup-wrs-1.5.13.exe
  7. I'm still hoping... ready and willing to make another donation if @bigmuscle fixes it. Would be nice not to have to click the "Cancel" button at every logon to have AeroGlass function.
  8. ^^This. If you have downloaded new symbols, then hitting "Cancel" will work every time. A minor annoyance, but still better than having to tolerate the unaesthetic Windows 10 UI abortion without AeroGlass. I am also hopeful that @bigmuscle will update it to have 1909 compatibility. I have been a long time (since 2013) financial supporter of his work and will gladly, and without hesitation, make another donation if he does.
  9. I am not sure. I have always posted in this forum and waited for resolution. @bigmuscle always takes care of the bugs. The instructions on the support page are "Use MSFN forum for any kind of support" so that is what I have always done. The hard part (for me) is being patient because Windows 10 sucks so bad without AeroGlass. Since 1909 was only just released for public consumption a couple of days ago, it would be unreasonable to expect it to be fixed already. For now it is an annoyance to have to click the cancel button on the DWM error at every logon, but otherwise it seems to be working. For the record, my desktop and my laptop both have the same issue with 1909.
  10. Delete the "s" in the URL HTTP:// instead of HTTPS:// and it should download fine. I have to do that every time.
  11. Wondering the same. Symbols download fine, but I am still getting the DWM compatibility error. I have deleted and downloaded new symbols about 4 times and it does not change anything. If I click "cancel" instead of "retry" then Aeroglass works on 1909, but I have to do that every time do a logon.
  12. Well, glory hallelujah! @bigmuscle has, once again, fixed the aesthetically emasculated UI of Windows 10 1809 just as he has every version of Windows since 8.X and restored what the Redmond Retards have taken from us. AeroGlass in all of its crystal clear glory is back for RS5. Now I don't feel like I need to puke every time I use the filthy, nasty, butt-ugly, pastel-colored cartoon vomit Windoze OS X 1809 stock UI. Yes, another donation is well-deserved and coming your way, bro. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
  13. Windows without AeroGlass is like a day with no sunlight. Tried 1709 a few days and it was too ugly and disgusting to put up with without AeroGlass.
  14. Not to my knowledge. It might be something one can manually add to the right-click context menu with some third-party utility, but it is a stand-alone portable application.
  15. That's entirely possible. Since I do not allow Micro$loth Updates (W7 or W10) to automatically corrupt my systems, that may be why I am not experiencing the issue.
  16. I just downloaded and viewed the video. Did disabling the Gaming stuff I mentioned earlier help at all? Something with those silly "features" does not play nice with either of my systems and I know of others that have bizarre issues with them enabled as well, and the problem came only since the release of 1703. It almost seems like a graphics output issue. What drivers are you using for the 960? If you uninstall the GPU drivers do you still have the blinking.
  17. Noel, I agree with you. I am reasonably certain it is Creators Abortion and has nothing to do with AeroGlass, because that issue predates the ability to use AeroGlass for Creators Abortion and disabling the Windows 10 XBOX gaming feature filth makes those problems go away for me.
  18. Chill dudes. I was providing friendly assistance to a fellow that thought he might be having a problem with AeroGlass and sharing a possible solution to his woes. If you expect me to tippy-toe around and say nice things about Windows 10, or pretend it's not a piece of garbage, that ain't gonna happen. AeroGlass is one of the third-party necessity things that is an absolute requirement to make this extremely feces-like piece of trash OS a lot less disgusting. The Redmond Retards owe an unpayable debt to guys like @bigmuscle for fixing all of their screw-ups and making this otherwise hopeless abortion a tolerable product. I'm a nice guy, but I don't beat around the bush when it comes to expressing my opinions about filth. Without third-party mods it is a PUP-bloated malware-ridden eyesore, LOL. Thank God for @bigmuscle and AeroGlass for sorting the eyesore part for us.
  19. Even without AeroGlass, I randomly have issues with clear squares like a window frame outline, randomly folders that appear to be empty when they are not. Clear start menu with no text or icons. The problem may not appear for days, then suddenly resurfaces. Using any UWA app crap triggers it. All of this nonsense started with 1703 Creators Abortion. Here is what I found to make the issue go away. Open Settings. Go to Gaming. Disable all of the available options under Game Bar, Game DVR and Game Mode. Reboot or logoff/logon. When I do that, those problems go away. If I go back to RS1 or older versions of W10 those problems go away, so it is only an RS2 bug related to their gaming gimmick garbage. And, I have to disable that stupid gaming crap on two different systems to eliminate this problem.
  20. No glitches here that I can identify. It is working fantastic for me on both of my systems now with Creators Abortion (1703, 15063.483) Dual display also has no issues...
  21. That worked for me as well. Thanks for posting it. Even temporarily installed the Paint 3D and Music UWA crApp that I have no use for just to check AeroGlass functionality and it worked.
  22. Below your name and avatar it shows Windows 10 x64. Do you have a system running 32-bit Windows 10 that requires the 32-bit version? Or, is there a reason you prefer using the 32-bit version of AeroGlass with 64-bit Windows? I hope that doesn't seem like a stupid question on my part, but I am sincerely curious since I saw you post it a couple of times. Am I missing out on something special in terms of aesthetics or functionality by using the 64-bit version instead of 32-bit?
  23. Thanks for saying something. I do not use Windows 10 UWA software for anything. (I remove just about all UWA apps from the ISO prior to installation, including Cortana, Skype, OneNote, etc.) I could have gone for the rest of my life and not known the items you mentioned are not working correctly with AeroGlass. Good catch!
