In Windows' power settings.

No, it is not changing anything. Just minute ago i disabled Fast Startup at my note in Windows power settings, disable App_Init... and placed UxTSB.dll in the folder with DWMGlas.dll. Then I restarted note. Now I have neverending logging into Windows...

I noticed the similar problem as CKyHC once, it occurred around Christmas time, I would get the usual spinning circle indicating logging in, then, instead of desktop showing up, I'm thrown back to the login screen, having to enter the password. I usually don't have to since I have auto-login enabled for my account. There is the same VirtualAllocEx error logged at said time frame.

Cold vs fast startup doesn't change anything either, would probably have to keep rebooting PC (for cold startup to be effective) or turning it off and on again (for fast startup to be effective) all day before the bug would occur again, if at all.

The problem seems to be obvious. It fails to inject UxTSB.dll for some reason and thus the custom theme crashes. The question is why it fails.

Auto-login is enabled via "control userpasswords2" or you just have account without password?

And we're still missing x86 version of UxTSB.dll.

On my work on x32 Windows 10 I use the old one. It works with some visual bugs.

Maybe it injects too late or too early? On my main comp with SSD login fails only if quick enter password. If I wait 1-2 sec or slowly enter my password - login succesfull. On note with HDD I can't login at all.

Title offset to the left running off window.
This happens with sagorpirbd theme and without any theme at all.
I too had to put UxTSB.dll in the AeroGlass folder in order to get the sagorpirbd theme to work.
This is using AG1.52

It may be the reason. The same situation (infinite login loop) happens when aerohost is not running at all.

No, I don't think so. In debug.log is present starting of DWMGlass.dll injecting. I think that aerohost.exe must to start after winlogon.exe, and if aerohost.exe starts before winlogon.exe - injects DWMGlass.dll into dwm, didn't find winlogon, after that winlogon.exe runs without UxtSB injected. May be aerohost.exe better run as service?

Is there any difference between older UxTSB64.dll and newer UxTSB.dll besides compilation date? If not, then I suppose I'm not missing out on anything by using older UxTSB32.dll renamed to UxTSB.dll to utilize new injection method on my 32-bit system. It does seem to work, can't reproduce that DLL injection failure bug on that machine neither.

Here's a weird one...

As of late last night my Win 10 test system, on which I'm running the Sagorpirbd Aero7 theme, stopped using my theme atlas replacement file for everything.  Thing is, I had been running the released 1.5.2 Aero Glass software for several days successfully. 

The only change to my system is that I added a couple more disks to my RAID array that holds all my VMs so the disk access speed underpinning the VM might be a little different, changing the timing of the bootup.

It seems the theme atlas is at least SOMEWHAT used because it's actually working for Modern windows (e.g., Settings, see the screen grab), and for title glow backing (which is dark colored in my theme atlas replacement).

If I just add a space after the end of the theme atlas file then delete it, the replacement theme atlas is properly loaded everywhere.

Here's the pertinent portion of debug.log, for which I upped the logging level...

Edit:  Additional information...

I restored the VM from a snapshot I took right after the cumulative update that brought Windows to 14393.576.  Then I reinstalled Aero Glass 1.5.2 from the "manual update" by replacing the various files (as I had done before).  Now it loads the theme and theme atlas successfully after reboot.  One thing I DIDN'T do was re-register the DLLs.

I did notice that a minidump has shown up in the folder, though...  Not sure why, since I didn't really see any issue.  Here it is:

@NoelC
Your minidump says Explorer crashed for some reason. ClassicStartMenuDLL.dll is the only external module I can see somewhere down in the call stack. I'm curious, do you have the option "Launch folder windows in a separate process" enabled? (Control Panel->File Explorer Options) I've been using this option for few days now and it seems to help preventing the crashes at first glance, or at least delaying them so they don't occur with my usage pattern.

When they would occur, it almost always happens when I interact with Explorer in some way, one example is minimizing one of the Explorer Windows then clicking the Start button. Though it doesn't happen necessarily only with Start button, one thing is certain, a lot of times, my mouse is somewhere on the taskbar when it crashes. Running virtual machine in the VMware seems to increase crash frequency, it happened few times while I was in the virtual machine.

That the minidump was in the AeroGlass folder implies it has to do with Aero Glass.  I haven't had it happen again.

Yes, I do have "Launch folder windows in a separate process".  That has always given a better experience in my observations.

I see, it's been a while since I used that option, I guess because things haven't been as crashy as much as they are now so i left it as it is. You got the minidump in Aero Glass folder simply because DWMGlass.dll has that functionality and is sitting in explorer.exe. You can use SetUnhandledExceptionFilter function to specify the crash handler that will be called by the system when the process crashes. From there, you call MiniDumpWriteDump. http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5028781/how-to-write-a-sample-code-that-will-crash-and-produce-dump-file That crash could be caused by anything.
