    @bigmuscle Could you please remove the forced watermark on the beta releases if a donation.key is present? The beta versions are often the only "working" versions of your product as it seems to take nearly half a OS build's lifespan for the applicable Glass8 beta build to reach full version. I'd say most users of your program are at least somewhat computerate literate and know what beta software entails (the risks). That being said I'd like to be able to use the beta version, which right now is the only working version for the current build of Windows 10, without having the program do the opposite of it's intention -- to make Windows look more pleasant [as applying a watermark to my desktop is not pleasant at all especially when I/we've paid already]. Thanks for all your work and I hope you can take this into consideration considering how long this has been going on now and the nuisance it's made for users.
  2. Is there a watermark on the Experimental Version? EDIT: Nevermind, I tried the Experimental DLL and there is a watermark, so I reverted back to the Stable DLL which is working fine for me in 1709 just a nag screen whenever I restart my computer.
  3. Are you using the default transparency setting or a custom theme/atlas file? I'm using the default theme with default transparency. I haven't tried using a custom theme via the new UXTheme Patcher from https://www.syssel.net/hoefs/software_uxtheme.php?lang=en and the custom themes need to be updated for 1709 anyways so if you're not trying the defaults maybe try those, otherwise I don't know why mine would work and others wouldn't. Just to be clear for anyone else, I had 1.5.6 installed then updated to 1709 with 1.5.6 still installed. Every reboot I just click "cancel" on the dwm prompt and everything works fine after that. Hope the newer version gets released soon though.
  4. So I upgraded to 1709 with 1.5.6 installed and it warned me with a dwm.exe prompt that Aero Glass wasn't supported for this version of Windows. It offered "Retry" or "Cancel". Figuring I'd be safe and press "Cancel" it then opened dwm.exe in cmd and showed it making several successful attempts to talk to the local dwm server. I waited several moments after it had finished scrolling the messages and then closed the cmd window. Well I don't know what it did but everything is working fine. xD Hopefully the beta for 1709 gets moved to stable soon so I can update without having to have the watermark because of development version.
