  1. Wondering if someone has some atlas updated/fixed for Creator Update. @NoelC , maybe? :3 Actually, some of the Atlas I had for Anniversary Update, still works in CU, but they "paint" the windows border, which is not present anymore in "vanilla" windows and show border even on start, which is quite ugly and pointless.
  2. No ETA. Usually an experimental aeroglass stay for a while - even months - before going stable. It need time to be updated with MS OS changes :3
  3. Well, 1.5.3 works partially with 1703. 1.5.4 Beta version works nice - only UWPs apps are missing back button on left. Tried sagorbird theme+atlas+glass+uwp frame+uxtsb everything seems to be in place. Of course, you'll see two/three debug window also with .key (but can be moved on desktop 2)
  4. Yes, atlas can be used with almost every theme. And can be taken from theme itself for best result, which is quite cool Of course, 7/rounded atlas are usually better with 7 themes - for a frame rounded layout; while 10/square atlas are better with 10 themes - for a squared frameless layout.
  5. Thanks for cmd tip. Actually, I already moved debugs windows to desktop 2 to avoid over-clicking. And yes, no more hangs it seems. Fun fact: even on some insider rings - without aero glass - the back button on metro apps don't show.
  6. It's working now, I missed the regsvr part, thanks again I'm noticing some hangs on explorer/start area - and missing back on metro frame. Well, I'll test it for a while :3 Now seems acting better - maybe need a little of trial stage to works well when enabled for first time. And what if I want to disable glass on metro apps without unregistering whole dwmglass? I read symbols versions from dwm debug window/log. Sometimes, hardcoded symbols are "old" after a win update; I update them when ready to avoid "dwm don't know how hook". But usually everything works also without them Sometimes, UWP glass hangs and I've to restart its debug windows. Well, actually I had two debug windows for UWPs: one with file icon (triggered by settings) and the other with folder icon (triggered by calculator). Closing one, could make start again metro apps/left area of start without restarting any process... These two seems to lock resources. Well, still having some hang issues with UWP frame, but it could be due uxtsb hook. Who knows. Every 'x' time, the frame process hangs and prevent to start any metro app - included settings. This affect also some windows. After a while, seems to be work fine without hangs. Glass environment stabilized
  7. @UCyborg mmh awkard... actually here the four symbols .pdb are present (used win10 sdk and script to get them) but are "older" - 10.0.14393.xxx (Anniversary Update) - but for dwm.exe are fine. Not tried on insider yet. And didn't test centered title - but yes, sagorbird theme/atlas/theme setting show a (better) glow but still no glass on most metro apps. There are any mandatory settings in aeroglassGUI/registry/metro settings to make it work ?
  8. So, for theming settings you need uxtsb? Well, I hooked loader for using updated 10 black theme; so it's working fine here. No glass on settings, but everything else is smooth :3
  9. OldNewExplorer 1.1.8

    I'm testing again. I dropped it for some time as I had issues (too many mods, probably). The question is: "it's possible to style command bar in 10?". There was a tool for 7, but it breaks explorer if used on ten.
  10. Thanks for share Yes, probably there are several ways to "fix" the atlas for CU. I chose the layout way as I'm not really good in editing png resources. Removing border padding with winaero tweaker > windows border option it's also useful to reuse older atlas/rounder corners - like the one for seven style - but it still show a small border, and I prefer the borderless layout.
  11. I'm testing as I'm on Creator Update. Seems to work nicely, it only miss the back button on UWP apps.
  12. On the page above you'll find the original version. These are the same, but with simple edits to remove border. Crystalight TextGlow (not mine for CU).zip
  13. I could try... but to be honest I'm not really sure what has to be changed in .layout and if the png should be fixed too. AeroGlass, even without windows border, is still nice :3 *EDIT* Ok, it's an experiment. Win8rp for creator update. I simply "disabled" some lines appending a # where it draws frame border. Seems fine, maybe I try with others atlas. Png is still the same of the original version. I upload for convenience. Win8rpCU.zip
  14. I suspect one app (paint shop pro X9) crash due aero glass - this app don't have a glass border and it uses it own window controls, but when it starts to hang, I notice is trying to "paint" a glass frame. Wondering if there is a .bat or .vbs to say "don't use aero glass" on specific app or to pause dwm effects when such apps are running. Should be possible, as aero glass uses native windows/dwm functions.
  15. Yes, it was actually a themed-ghost copy as you pointed out By the way, I lowered the undo value in the app - it was too high - and I'm not experiencing more hangs
  16. Aero Glass for Win8.1+ 1.5.3

    Just updated windows to creator update and aero glass still works. It's not perfect yet, but works. Things changed in AeroGlassGUI Disabled both atlas/reflection image for the moment - it reduces glitches. Blur set to 4 (in previous update was 7). Sometimes "blur" effect disappear. Moved to beta for the moment There is some new atlas/modernframe version to test?
  17. Ok, so the problem is different. Nice to hear that Can be aeroglass paused via script? (Just to try without mess with its normal functions)
  18. Really nice, tested in vmware It's possible to embed some files in the PE? Some softwares, the network .reg patch for LM compatibility (can use network places between 98 and 7), maybe the mouse applet (tend to be too fast) and the one for users (windows use it for networking purposes), maybe even some drivers but I think these can break things. However, great work
  19. Pretty much similar to previous one, but dark. - Win10 10240 RTM (1507). I had alot of problems with 1511 (TH2) no related to Aeroglass, so I'll stay with "conservative" branch - Aeroglass 1.4.6 in c:\Aero (\Aeroglass path never worked to me xD) + injected Moderframe.dll via Appinit. - Theme set: Windows Black Edition Mix 1 (Mr. Grim) + Clsharp 4.2 (atlas)+ BecClouds (reflection). - Classic explorer, old new explorer, hacked shell32.dll (suppress command bar), uxtheme patch (unsigned themes driver) - This set supports also black glass enhanced (blur explorer windows), but it's too glassy even for me
  20. After WinUpdates, obviously. However Aeroglass still works, but it says symbols are old (march '16). I updated them with my usual script which worked REM # INSTALL WINDOWS 10 SDK KIT BEFORE # REM cd C:\Aero\symbols REM md symbols cd C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Debuggers\x64 symchk /r c:\windows\system32\ApplicationFrame.dll /s SRV*c:\Aero\symbols\*http://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbols symchk /r c:\windows\system32\dwm.exe /s SRV*c:\Aero\symbols\*http://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbols symchk /r c:\windows\system32\dwmcore.dll /s SRV*c:\Aero\symbols\*http://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbols symchk /r c:\windows\system32\uDWM.dll /s SRV*c:\Aero\symbols\*http://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbols but probably the new checked for this version are not ready yet. Can someone confirm this?

  21. Taskbar and Start not blurred

    Blur deviation is an hex or dec value? However in reg is 0x000000020 (32) I haven't any hideblur value in registry. Used cmd+vbs method explained somewhere in threads However, taskbar blur partially works, only it's really different colour (eg. red instead blue) Doesn't follow the colour used by classic shell start (disabled control from there) and windows frames colorizations (colour picked from sliding wallpapers). I saw to disable accent color (what I've to edit?) but I don't lost windows frame/start colourization editing in this way?
  22. I managed in past, but now, after reinstalling windows 10, I've lost all the hard-made changes I did. (They sees but without connecting) What's the best manner to proceed for networking these too? (Probably looking around I mixed several modes or editing soo much things, which is not good). Editing policies (LSA reg edits on 98/10) doesn't lower the general network security? (However set to Level 1) Is NetBIOS necessary? (Actually I don't see it on windows10, maybe it was removed?) There's an updated browser for Win98? (I use Opera 12.04, but obviously it's outdated. I'd avoid to use KernelEx, but if I need, I'll do) I now there are a lot of posts/threads/guides for this (a lot found here), I'm still confused on the matter for this reason
  23. [OLD] Experimental builds

    updated to b491.. no problems only modernframe seems not to work (I disabled metro apps dark theme, probably not supported by frame yet)
  24. [OLD] Experimental builds

    Anyone knows if uxtheme bypass works on 10586? (as I use a shellstyle.dll hack to remove folderband, but still shows and I don't see "loading" when I start the hacked theme).
  25. [OLD] Experimental builds

    *EDIT* With new symbols from SDK and Win8rp (clsharp 4.x works well too), build 460 on 10586 is nice Thanks a lot, for this experimental but cool release
