AeroGlass doesn't work on Windows 10 Build 14342. It always worked fine on previous builds without symbols.

Yea it puts bits, and pieces of taskbar all over my desktop!  :o

Some people's definition of "works" is pretty flawed.

It hasn't worked since 10586.

Given that Microsoft is actively breaking Aero Glass for Win 8+ with each new release, hoping for it to work again might be a bit of a stretch.  I wouldn't blame Big Muscle if he were to just give up the project.  It's fine software, and I hope he doesn't give it up - I sure wouldn't want to use Win 10 build 10586 without it - but for him I imagine the joy of discovery must be fading some as the fatigue of having to redo his good work over and over again sets in.

It's been a good run of a great product.  All this time making Windows 8.1 usable, and even a full year of making Windows 10 somewhat usable again.  But it's not what Mother Microsoft wants.

I went to nividas site and found a newer driver than windows. It made the situation a bit better; not 100%, but aleast 70%

@bigmuscle this pops up now at every boot yet, as you can see, the Aeroglass effect is still active.  This is since the last major Win 10 update (10586).

Any simple solution?

@Ex_Brit try the solution offered by MDJ (requires the installation of windows software development kit).

Being that you're still on 10586 it should work and clear up the issue.

Thank you.  I assume OK until MS break it again, darn it.

I was hoping there was a simpler way, a simple registry edit for example.

Well it didn't work.  However I could have altered drive letters incorrectly (my 2 installations are on L: and N: respectively).  But it seems to me there are a lot more C: mentioned in that bat file than just the 2 mentioned for change..

Thanks, have no idea how to use them, sorry.

That's ok, what you need to do is take the symbol files and place them in your installation of AeroGlass.

For example, say your system drive is L:, then aeroglass would be installed there as L: > AeroGlass. Placing the files into AeroGlass would be to extract the files from my provided .rar and place them within the AeroGlass file as L: > AeroGlass > symbols.

From there restart your computer or restart the dwm.exe process from task manager. Hope that helps.

Ok, thanks.

Do I still need to run  that crazy script & if I do am I right in saying that there are several places where C: whould be changed that the original author failed to mention?

I assumed the answers were yes and yes and guess what?  It appears to have worked.

I'm wondering why Bigmuscle hasn't weighed in on this.

Sorry, was a bit preoccupied

Unless you need to download the files again (which will be soon if you plan on getting the anniversary update) then you don't need to run the script; yes there are plenty of places where you would need to change the drive letter though an older version requires less changes (its at the end of my post). As for why BM hasn't commented, I assume he's off busy with life and other issues at the moment, besides there's always people around to help out if there are questions.
