Hello bigmuscle,

 

I am not/no longer seeing the window caption glow effect in Explorer windows (though other applications are working fine).

 

Earlier today I applied the KB3000850 update for Windows 8.1 and Aero Glass for Win8.1 correctly downloaded the new symbol file(s) after reboot.  That's when I noticied that Explorer windows were no longer showing the caption glow effect.  At that point I tried an in-place upgrade to v1.3.1 (via setup-w8.1-1.3.1.exe) but still no glow in Explorer.  I finally did a complete uninstall/reinstall of v1.3.1 but glow is still not working on Explorer windows captions.

 

I am using bone stock Win8.1 plus Bing Desktop, my current theme includes only a Bing wallpaper and the slate Color as selected in Personalization (no third-party DLLs other than yours).

 

I thought this was working in v1.2.5 but maybe I am mistaken?  I've attached a copy of my debug.log (edited to mask Machine ID and key).

 

Thanks. (Peter)

@f23948 He seemingly didn't know. He uses a proper xopy atm

@kaddirB of course ppl prefer software working. The point is that I cannot see on the screen where it's not. So please use paint or whatever to mark the problem. Also attach a log so the 0l who know more xan look at it

@war59312 do you use a 3rd party theme? Maybe that's not compatible.

this is no aero issue. This happens when you use a theme which is incompatible with the Spring Update for 8.1. StartIsBack+ fixes it.

 

 

Or modifying the theme file for it to work without Startisback but it messes up the original Start Menu Properties in the process. One of the 2.

Yes, it can be fixed by using offical way of installation.

Uninstall it. Make sure no files are left behind. Then download the official aero glass. Then use Windows default theme
