  1. ONE doesn't require the user to change the settings upon reboot as it only needs to be applied once. It isn't for you?
  2. Update: fixed itself. Since today I'm seeing the sub-navigation bar area with a grey background, rather than the white-to-grey gradient it was previously. Has a recent Windows update changed something? Was on v1.0.7.0 and because of this uninstalled the old version and updated to the newest OldNewExplorer but the same problem exists. FWIW save/open dialog windows aren't affected (but I'm not sure if OldNewExplorer even touches them):
  3. Here is the most recent output. Edit: wait, I could have sworn I was using v1.3 at least. Will try updating. Update worked, however my donation key isn't being recognized and the watermark appears on the desktop. I installed over the existing copy and all the original files are still there including 'license.key', so I'm not sure what went wrong. Reboot didn't help.
  4. I did, but I don't normally download files from unknown sources, although it's likely fine.
  5. This latest Windows 8.1 update has broken Aero Glass symbols. An error message keeps popping up asking me if I'd like to retry downloading. Hopefully there's a fix soon.
  6. Thanks, the value works fine. In fact the additional leading zeros are removed anyway so it becomes '90003' instead of '00090003'.
  7. The theme I'm using is 12 afaik, not sure about the default value in the other Aero Glass text glow mode.
  8. Cheers for the laugh So if I'm understanding it correctly the HIWORD for the glow size would be the first four digits converted to hexidecimal and the existing value (the glow mode) would be the last four digits. Meaning I'd enter '00090003' as the registry value if I wanted a value of '9'? Hope that's right.
  9. In the docs, under the Registry options section, the 'TextGlowMode' mentions it's possible to set the glow size using a 'HIWORD'. How do I add the HIWORD to the DWORD value (or otherwise)? Searched but didn't find anything. Also the v1.3.1 download link on the main Aero Glass site is returning a 404 btw.
  10. Glad it's simple BTW I'm just going through the v1.2.5 installer and there's a checkbox option 'Protect Aero Glass by adjusting access permissions' - what is this and is it worth enabling? Couldn't find it in the site's FAQ guide.
  11. @bigmuscle check your PMs, I've sent across a link of one of the dump files. The one I chose was 105MB, and others are 220MB, so I picked the smaller one
  12. I've since deleted the ones from the 17-27th and the other 19, as they were taking up space, but another minidump has been created so I can upload that in about four days time (bandwidth cap is close to the upper limit currently). Is there any identifiable information about the system/user stored within the files?
  13. Unfortunately changing the BlurDeviation made no difference, but it was set to that value for a long time before this anyway. I also found 37 minidump files totalling 5.63GB being created in the root Aero Glass directory, from the 17th of September to today, yet I thought that debugging feature was disabled already :\ The 17th was the date I changed the Atlas theme, which does seem to coincide with noticing the glitchy transparency. Edit 2: adding a blank 'CustomThemeAtlas' entry to the HKCU and manually changing the current 'unsaved theme' in the desktop 'Personalise' control panel to a previous saved theme seems to have dramatically reduced this issue, it's now no longer noticable when hoving over most close buttons. Will test some more over the coming days. BTW 19 new minidumps were created in the root folder in the last little while though Wish there was a way to disable these.
