Aero Glass not working on Windows 8.

Recommended Posts

Absolutely none of the features for Aero Glass are working. Blur, the transparency effect, borders, you name it. I've tried restarting, but it just gets stuck on "1 out of 1 updates."
Even uninstalling and reinstalling doesn't work, and it's pretty annoying. Any help?

By the way, my computer is 64 bit.

Why are you on Windows 8?  It is not supported anymore by Microsoft.  Are you sure you do not mean Windows 8.1?  Make sure you downloaded the correct version from here

There are two versions, you want v1.3.

The quote below lists some motives for one to keep on Windows 8.0 (for more info just click on its jumpback link):

It seems to me that Intel processors that are unable to run 8.1 and 10 lack PREFETCHW, which all multicore AMD processors do include, whereas most multicore AMDs that are unable to run 8.1 and 10 lack CMPXCHG16b, instead. However, at this point, this is little more than just a guess. I know for sure all Athlon XPs cannot run even 8.0, because they lack SSE2, among other things, but not all Athlon 64 X2 and later AMD processors are able to run 8.1 or 10 but all seem to be able to run 8.0...

Yeah, I mean Windows 8.1.

I have v1.3 and yet it does literally nothing.

Just use the latest version if you have 8.1.

Windows 8.0 is no longer supported

Windows 8.1 with spring update is still supported
