MrGRiM are you using a License.key to auto download symbols ?

It is the intention - when glow.bmp is not present, it uses standard DrawThemeTextEx API flag DTT_GLOWSIZE with glow size set to 5. Putting glow image (as well as aero stripes) directly into atlas is planned but I am not sure how it will work in Win8.1.

Bit late here, but both images already exist in the msstyles, Stripes is Class: DWMWindow, Part 63, State 0 and Text Glow is DWMWindow, Part 48, State 0

Though by default the text glow is a blank image and the stripes are now just a subtle gradient that only shows on the aero peek windows.

BEST TO INSTALL ALL WINDOWS 8.1 UPDATES FIRST Because dwmcore.dll and uDWM.dll MAY get updated . :yes:

Works with Beta 2 as well.

I just had a go on Windows 8.1. I have a dual monitor setup.

In the primary window, it worked perfectly. In the secondary window... It was like the desktop no longer knew where the window is. If I start Aero Glass by restarting the DWM process, the secondary monitor keeps the image but I can no longer interact with the screen - its like the desktop is limited to one screen, however, the mouse pointer is able to move there.

According to bigmuscle (see post #141 earlier in this thread), this has been fixed and the fix will be in the next beta release.

Cheers!
