  1. Lol, wouldn't ever count on that happening, Stardock is all about proprietary software. All their software uses their own extensions. Also, Stardock Windowblinds and Start10 uses .bmp images to generate their theme images as .msstyle themes generally use .png images which is why StartIsBack probably acts glitchy with Windowblinds. Stardock has made it that if you want to use Windowblind themes you have to use Start10 and I don't ever see that changing, it would be detrimental to their sales of Start10.
  2. Bloatware is bloatware no matter how you slice it or what your pc runs. Stardocks software is a total waste of pc resources.
  3. To each his own, I have it installed and depending on how you use it, it does not make the entire window transparent, if you want Windows 7 transparency then install Windows 7 or install Starbloat's Curtains. I honestly do not believe that AeroGlass by Big Muscle is going to be updated anytime soon (if ever again) and honestly the answer is a no, there is no de-facto alternative to AeroGlass, you have Vistaglazz , Black Glass Enhanced etc. but all do the same thing SSM does to some extent. I actually happen to like this , although until a version comes out that actually saves your c
  4. Ok, little confused here, downloaded , unpacked and installed. I can see how it works but what is confusing to me is how to make it keep the settings without having to turn on the aeroglass effect every time you open a window? Seems kind of pointless to me if that is what you have to do. Ok, hier wenig verwirrt, heruntergeladen, entpackt und installiert. Ich kann sehen, wie es funktioniert, aber was mich verwirrt, ist, wie ich die Einstellungen beibehalten kann, ohne den Aeroglas-Effekt jedes Mal einschalten zu müssen, wenn Sie ein Fenster öffnen. Scheint mir irgendwie sinnlos,
  5. We will never know will we, they may surprise you one day, just as with Sets, it'll be back one of these updates. Listen, I get what you are saying, there are a lot of frustrated people that have made donations that are complaining too. No one seems to know what motivates the man, he just does it when he does it. I did not mean to imply that you were plastering complaints all over the forum , it is everyone is general, they think if they complain enough it'll make BM update it faster, in my mind it is quite the contrary.
  6. If it bothers you that much about having to "donate" to unlock the software and having to wait for updates, you don't have to use it. There are other less viable options out there like Black Glass Enhanced that you can use. I have donated more than once but I also wait patiently for the updates without plastering complaints all over the forum here, because it gets you nowhere, it is not going to make him update it any faster, it'll get done when it gets done. I have always said that if BM does not have the time to invest in and update and improve aeroglass then he just should sell th
  7. I have tried the PDB Downloader, doesn't work, at least not on 1909, I still get the error. I just click retry or cancel and it goes away, I am sure there will be a fix for it put out a few weeks before 20H1 is released, then we will need the fix for 20H1.
  8. I use custom Windows icons and have just updated to SIB 2.8.7 and see that in unlike previous versions of SIB that my All Programs icons are now the standard Windows yellow folder icons and not the custom folder icons I have installed, yet in the SIB Configurations my custom icons are displayed ....... Is this just a bug ? Because I am hearing things of user having to modify SIB .dll's in order to have their custom icons shown in All Programs.
  9. When you are in the software development business, you know as well as I there are always those that just DO NOT follow directions for whatever reason, mostly because people choose not to READ and follow directions, all they want to do is download the file and run it and 99.9% of the time if the software does not perform for them it's only because of my previous statement, people do not follow directions. "If you look into past, you can see situations when I released private version to donators only and someone immediately publish it in different forum - not "by mistake", but intentionall
  10. Like I said, your software, your decision, I just think some of us see it a little differently.
  11. Big Muscle, thank you for clearing up the first part about the coding. As to the rules, I get what you are saying and I COMPLETELY understand if the file that was posted was a fully functioning version of Aeroglass, but this wasn't, I personally downloaded the file both from Virtual Customs and your site also and the only thing in the .7z file is a DWMGlass.dll file, so IMO unless someone already had a copy of Aeroglass installed there really isn't anything or any use for the file that anyone could do anything with and EVEN IF they did have a copy of Aeroglass installed all it would have
  12. I really do not see what the problem is, all the man did was re-post the original file, it's not like he modified it or tried to claim it as his own or was torrenting the file, it's not even like the file would have given someone a full free version of Aeroglass, the water mark would (or should) have been there regardless. Virtual Customs has been a friend to Big Muscle for a very long time and a lot of our members contribute to the testing of Aeroglass' beta's. If the man has given a contribution or donation IMO a request for the removal of the file and post from the forum would have suf
  13. 2.8 beta , Centered task icons works on Windows default but does not work on 3rd party themes.
  14. You are absolutely right, and with each new Windows build it takes longer and longer for a working version of Aeroglass, even though I still support it I don't hold my breath for a working version anymore, I have just learned to live without it. By the time we get a working version of Aeroglass for the Spring 2018 update the next Windows update will be here, what in around 3 to 4 months? Besides, Microsoft is rolling out acrylic a little at a time, I suspect before too long users will be able to apply acrylic effects to Windows 10. I am sure there is someone with time on their hands
  15. Yup, Window Blinds is still the same old bloat machine it has always been. The thing is Window Blinds serves their themes from within their software, which is why Window Blinds runs in the system tray whereas a "true" third party custom theme is served from the C:\Windows\Resources\Themes folder, like they should be. Starbloat serves their themes from within the software and uses the .wba extension with the idea they can keep Window Blinds themes sort of "proprietary", meaning their themes have to have Window Blinds to run and will not run without it, that is until someone can figure how to di
