This forum serves for discussion about small project called Aero Glass for Win8.1+.
The basic rule of this forum: READ FIRST

  • Aero Glass for Win8 does not work on Windows 8.1
  • Aero Glass for Win8.1 does not work on Windows 8
  • My PayPal e-mail does NOT serve as technical support and you will not get any answer if you mail to it, because this mailbox is not monitored.
  • This application is free. However, it does not mean that you can use all of this features. It simply means that it is freely available to download, it can be freely used for personal and business use, on unlimited number of computers, by unlimited number of users and for unlimited time, and it provides you promised Aero Glass effect for free.
  • If you want to remove desktop watermark, read this page: http://glass8.eu/donate
  • If you want to report some problem, enable logging (see Guide how to do that), restart dwm.exe and provide debug.log after the problem appears.
  • Do NOT install Aero Glass into non-writable location !!!
  • Aero Glass directory must be accessible by everyone, because DWM runs under different user credentials.
  • Windows with extended glass frame render their captions on their own and thus DWM (and neither my Aero Glass) cannot influence whether the glow effect is rendered behind them.
  • If you don't get glass effect when running on the battery, then read the guide how to change this behaviour.
  • If you get "DWM incompatibility error" message, it is because you have installed Windows update which modified your Desktop Windows Manager. Such situation can be solved by installing public symbols for the new version of DWM. Private/Full/Donated version downloads the symbols automatically, so you don't have to do anything except waiting for a while. Otherwise, you must get them on your own, several ways to get them has been described in this topic. You can also check http://glass8.eu/guide#symbols
  • Aero Glass for Win8.1+ is the extension for rendering engine only! Although it renders glass effect on any area which is marked to be the glass, it does not mark any area by itself! Check guide to get information how to mark any window to be the glass.

If you didn't get any e-mail after your donation, check your spam folder. It can be stuck there. Otherwise, you can login on this page using your PayPal e-mail and your postal code/ZIP.
.. the other most frequent problems will be pinned here ...
