  1. I'm seeing the same thing. It appears that when one window only partially overlaps another window this occurs. The same window fully inside or fully outside any other window seems to be fine. The affected pixels do not seem to line up with any features of the underlying window when the problem occurs. I see this more often from a screen grab rather than on the desktop itself. The screen grab below shows it as an opaque black line with a 90° bend in it.
  2. Hi genecooper. Good for you for hanging in there instead of feeling unwelcome around here and leaving without resolving your issues. I'm glad you're up and running and that you're happy with the results. I have stayed away from any sort of forums now for many years, until now, but I clearly remember those times and also waking up one day, realizing I was one of those posters who gave little regard to 'newbies' who wanted answers to questions that I had worked long and hard for. I had been posting 'helpful' replies similar to some of the replies you've received here, which really weren'
  3. I am my own employer and I have to sit at these machines 12-14 hours a day, typically 7 days a week. I am indeed concerned how my desktops look because they have a strong influence on my mood and outlook even after I retire for the day or perform other activities. If I had employees, I would be sensitive to their own desires for the very same reason and consider offering them Aeroglass as well. I have been cautious in my use of Aeroglass, always making sure it's been safe to use in a working environment.
  4. I agree. I have 3 PCs here in my office, one of which is a legacy x86. For reasons I won't detail here that one 32 bit machine needs to remain that way. Yet it is just as valuable to me as the other two 64 bit machines, and I use it on a nearly daily basis. I would hate to eventually lose Aeroglass on that one all-important machine!
  5. Yes, as per the original post in this thread Version 1.4.6 is a working release. There was a small glitch with the installer program at first, but BM quickly fixed it yesterday. I have used it on two PCs already and I am very pleased.
  6. Thanks, Big Muscle. I checked the Glass8 download page and see that you have updated the installation executable. I tried it just now and it works.
  7. Good to know. I'm sure BM just compiled the installer without a certain setting and will update it as soon as he sees this thread. As far as Windows 10, I had forced the Anniversary update to NOT run about 3 weeks ago, but the latest security update last Tuesday apparently defeated the block I installed because just as soon as I installed Aero Glass for Win8.1+ v1.4.6 earlier today a new PopUp appeared to tell me 1607 (Anniversary Update) was going to be installed in the next few days whether I liked it or not. I've reblocked it again...sigh
  8. That works if you already have Aeroglass installed. This is a new install because I completely lost glass on this pc months ago when Microsoft automatically updated me from 8.1 to 10 without my permission, wiping out my installation and forever preventing me from returning to 8.1, but that's another story. I downloaded the files as you did and installed them in a new folder and ran the old aeroglass schedule.bat to get it going, which worked to some extent. At least aerohost is running. Transparency is all wrong at the moment.
  9. I'm running build 10586.589 64 bit and when I try to run the installer, "setup-w8_1-1_4_6.exe", I get the Error: This program does not support the version of Windows your computer is running. I have tried running several combinations of compatibility modes, running as Administrator, etc. and always get that error. According to the download page that installer should be for my setup.
