    aero glass for version 1803

    I just solved the symbols issue by following the instructions from this post: https://msfn.org/board/topic/177522-aero-glass-for-version-1803/?page=7&tab=comments#comment-1153681 Worked like a charm! -JT

    aero glass for version 1803

    After this week's recent 'Cumulative Update" for W10 version 1803, AeroGlass is now not downloading/hooking the latest Symbols file. Has anyone else successfully downloaded the new symbols? If so, could you please upload them and/or post a link+instructions to download them? Much Appreciated! - JT

    aero glass for version 1803

    Thanks! After today's Windows 10 v1803 cumulative update to OS Build 17134.228, my AeroGlass got the dreaded error "Aero Glass for Win8.1 + Incompatibility issue... Aero Glass does not know how to hook your version of DWM (0x81)." I was able to fix the error/issue by following the same instructions (above) that worked for OS Build 17134.191 Many Thanks! -JT
  5. AeroGlass v1.5.9 works great on Windows 1709
  6. Many Thanks, @bigmuscle Version 1.5.9 working great so far! -JT
  7. Hey Bigmuscle, @bigmuscle Is there anything you need (debug info, logs, feedback?) from any of us in this community/forum to complete your debugging efforts and finally release AeroGlass v1.5.9? The beta/experimental version seems to be working well on my test machines. How can we help you get v1.5.9 released? -JT

    aero glass for version 1803

    Latest AeroGlass experimental build version (RS4_17134_1342_x64dbg) working great on my test 1803 machine! Looking forward to 'release' version (hopefully soon!) -JT
  9. Hope you are close to releasing the updated official build @bigmuscle. Really looking forward! -JT
  10. For anyone having difficulties initially downloading the symbols required by AeroGlass, Here is a zip file with all of the recent symbols downloaded (from my Win 10-64 system): https://www.dropbox.com/s/y46j8nk1hp1y0an/AeroGlass-Symbols-Backup_2018-01-31.zip Simply, extract the 'symbols' folder as a subdirectory off of the 'AeroGlass' installation folder and you should be 'good-to-go'. Hope this helps! -JT
  11. YES! Thank you @bigmuscle for this latest update, I just finished testing it and it fixes ALL of the visual glitches AND residual artifacts issues I was experiencing as well! Looks like we are good to go! Please DO post an official version as soon as you can! (watermark and debug windows get really annoying after a while). -JT
  12. This was also driving me crazy until I figured out (by looking at the debug file from the latest experimental version 1290) that AeroGlass was unable to download: http://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbols/dwmcore.pdb/4DFDA14B2ACD35B23AC37976303DB51A1/dwmcore.pdb Finally, by simply manually pasting the above link into my browser, I was able to download the above required symbol file. I then had to manually create a subfolder with the name "4DFDA14B2ACD35B23AC37976303DB51A1" in the '..symbols\dwmcore.pdb' folder, and then copied the 'dwmcore.pdb' file into this new subfolder. Everything worked great from that moment forward! Hope this helps anyone! -JT
  13. Today, BigMuscle just posted an 'Experimental Build' (v1280) that can be downloaded from http://www.glass8.eu/beta that hopefully will address these residual screen artifacts issues. Thx @bigmuscle I'm hoping to test this shortly...

    Taskbar bug?

    This is related to the "random glitches on occlusion regions" bug that has already been reported by many users. BigMuscle has just posted today an 'Experimental Build' (v1280) that can be downloaded from http://www.glass8.eu/beta that hopefully will address your issue. Feel free to test the new experimental build and report back your results here...
  15. Thx, Good to know! Looking forward to testing!
  16. This is really a shame. I wish @bigmuscle could help here with so many of us suffering from these artifact/glitches! I have gotten so sick of these AeroGlass artifacts that, for this first time ever, I decided to downgrade my Windows 10 to version 1703 (RS2) and use the (reliable) AeroGlass v1.5.6. I really hope BigMuscle can work with us to create a new reliable/patched version, Otherwise, I'm just going to sit on the sidelines and wait for the next windows version (Redstone 4). -JT

    AERO GLASS 1.5.7

    Yes, the artifacts exist and many of us have complained about this serious (unresolved) residual screen artifacts issue! See the other threads... http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/177288-thank-you-big-muscle-for-new-aero-glass-build-157/?page=3
  18. Thx @bigmuscle, It's difficult to pinpoint, but it seems that the AeroGlass blurring is interfering with screen drawing/refresh timing of the display in general. Sometimes ghosted window shadows are left as windows are closed (from multiple apps), the TrueLaunch Bar app often leaves artifacts, and the ribbon display on MindManager 2018 is not properly displayed. turning off window 'animations' helps in some cases, the artifacts disappear as soon as they are 'moused 'over' or it the screen is redrawn in any way. Many users have reported these artifacts issues. I have a simple intel i7 system with onboard HD 630 graphics and no custom anything on it. The above video (from "lucario94") best illustrates one of the many typical artifact scenarios that happens... https://webmshare.com/oPOX6 Thx for looking into this... -JT
  19. Yes, I copied them directly from the 1.5.7 Zip download (and then wiped everything and used the 1.5.7 installer) "symsrv.dll and dbghelp.dll are version 10.0.10150.0 and have a date on them of 06/23/2015" How does one turn on verbose logging?
  20. Thx for the suggestion, but this is the 'tail wagging the dog'. It only solves a few of the 'many' glitches issues. Can you help us resolve these serious residual artifacts @bigmuscle ?
  21. Thanks @gitit20 for suggesting to upgrade the video driver. Unfortunately for me, it did not help at all. I've now updated my built-in Intel HD 630 graphics driver to the latest - to no avail... -JT
  22. Me 2, Very frustrating! Symbols are not downloading. I tried logging out/In, restarting, AND reinstalling. Nothing works! I get this annoying error box every time my computer restarts or wakes from sleep: Please help anyone! -JT
  23. With SBPro, It's been intermittent on my machine - mostly when the 'modify profile' windows is closed - not the main window. Right now I can't easily reproduce. With the True Launch Bar, it is easy to reproduce the glitches - and also with MindManager 2018...
  24. Ditto! As I said in my earlier post, Several programs are now intermittently leaving residual artifacts on the desktop after their app windows close/redraw/refresh. For example: 1) TrueLaunchBar caption windows now often remain on the screen until I mouse over them again; 2) MindManager 2018 will not properly display it's collapsed ribbon properly while Aero Glass 1.5.7 is running; 3) SyncBack Pro now intermittently leaves ghosted windows on the desktop after they are closed! Unfortunately, I'm unable to take screenshots of these issues because taking a screenshot causes the desktop+windows to be refreshed, which wipes out the residual artifacts. I've inspected the log file and nothing unusual is being generated. No mini-dumps are being created either. Disable blurring and these glitches disappear. Please help @bigmuscle. Let me know if I can give you any additional info! Perhaps creating a screen video recording would allow me to demonstrate the glitches. -JT
