Experimental builds

My laptop shows 3 debug windows after the newest build combined with the latest windows updates while my desktop only shows one debug window with the same combo... anyone else having this issue?

EDIT: Reinstalling v1.4.5 did the trick and properly re-downloaded a fresh set of symbols.

All is good now.

So, just to make sure I understand -- you disabled AeroGlass, then uninstalled it, and then reinstalled it?

Any additional in-between steps involved? No reboots?

Thanks!

Hmm, I cant login because apparently my donator login is not working at all. Unfortunately its tied to an email account I no longer use and when I try to do forgotten password, I get an error 500. Its not a big deal. I've donated before and I can just wait for the final release and I will probably just donate again and get a new account with the correct email to get access to experimental builds again.

I checked the error log and found this error: "Recipient address rejected: Domain not found", so surely when your e-mail is not accessible, it cannot send you a new password there.

I would think you'd like as many testers on the pre release version as possible, not restrict it.

Pre-release version is not for testing. It is just a regular release which has been published earlier so donators do not need to wait before I finish other stuff - 32-bit version, installer etc.

I never donated, but thanks anyway.  I have it through other methods.  :ph34r:  It's been leaked in many different forums already!  LOL

I hope that many different forums will also leak their own Aero Glass if I decide to stop the development completely :cool:

AeroGlass build 1.5.0.669 has compatibility issue with Windows 10 Insider build 14926 and doesn't run at all. Which I thought would had happened.

Looks really terrific. And I here cannot get ModernFrame working. The dll is not injected, although I set the registry as instructed.

The address of course is: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows.

Am I missing something?

Some weeks ago Big Muscle released a new build 14393-compatible ModernFrame.dll, which had more in its name:

ModernFrame-x64-Debug.dll

Are you running that one?  If so, at some point you'd have had to rename it, as your AppInit_DLLs registry entry calls out "ModernFrame.dll".

Here's the related software Big Muscle has put out that I know about.  When I say "works", I mean I have tested it on Win 10 x64.

  • A release candidate for Aero Glass for Win 8+ - 1.5.0.669 that works.
  • A debug ModernFrame-x64-Debug.dll from August 24 that works.
  • A very old Aero Glass GUI from December 2014 within which only a few of the functions work.
  • UxThemeSignatureBypass64.dll from March 2015 that doesn't work (AFAIK) with build 14393.  It may facilitate theme replacement okay, but without a theme replacement it messes up title text on ribbon-enabled windows.  It appears to be reading the "title glow" from the wrong place in the theme atlas.

Someone please correct me if I have any of this wrong.

By the way, Big Muscle, do you expect that 1.5.0.669 should work with Win 8.1?  I just tried it in my Win 8.1 test VM, which was successfully running 1.4.5.520, and it just caused a multiple DWM restart loop, which stopped after a few iterations with no translucency showing or theme atlas loaded.

Are you planning to recommend staying with 1.4.5.520 for Win 8.1 users?

Probably not. I will rather port some fixes back to 1.4.5 and release separate version. It would add some other time to have one version working on both systems.

OK, seems reasonable - thanks. 

Regarding porting bugfixes back, I've had 1.4.5.520 run fine on a heavily used Win 8.1 system for almost a full month without a reboot and with no problems, so I'm imagining the bugs must not be too bad.  :)

Can you link to your theme atlas file please? That one is really beautiful. I'd love to try it out.

Sure I used the dll you mention. Just renamed it to be sure the registry doesn't get confused by the long name (with MS you never know...).

Tried to use the UxTheme... dll once and it screwed everything so much that I got rid of it immediately and never tried to investigate the reasons.

Still ModernFrame doesn't work. BM, any advise?
