My RoundedCorners theme atlas has a baked-in blue color.  A while back I made an alternative one without that...

Thanks but still doesn't take the colour away. I've tried so many different options using areoglass reg. Hope bigmuscle updates the gui tool soon.

SeNS, it's possible you haven't been reading carefully, but a release IS already made for 64 bit users.  Big Muscle is still working on the 32 bit version, the installer, (hopefully) the GUI configuration application, the ModernFrame DLL, (hopefully) the UxThemeSignatureBypass DLLs...

-Noel

Hmm, could you please point me to the "secret" release page? Because I see only http://www.glass8.eu/beta i.e. !!! EXPERIMENTAL TESTING BUILD ONLY - DO NOT USE ON YOUR PRODUCTION ENVIRONMENT !!!

So, what I should "read carefully"? Can I install this beta http://www.glass8.eu/beta?file=rs1_14393_668_x64.7z and use AeroGlass w/o debug window, label on desktop etc.? 

Or your meaning of "release" is a quite different? What do you call "release"? I'm professional software developer and too busy with my daily job and homebrew "moonlight" projects for UWP platform. I don't have time for testing and discussing here; what I want is to have a "worry-less" release of "AeroGlass", to make my windows captions semi-transparent...

P.S. I understand, we are not a customers 'cause we didn't paid but donated. However a small appreciation to the donators is always very welcome (it's not for you but for bigmuscle)

You have to create a new DWORD called GlassOpacity and set it 0-100 default: 68.


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\DWM]
"AccentColor"=dword:c41f1f1f
"EnableBlurBlend"=dword:00000000
"GlassOpacity"=dword:00000000
"AccentColorInactive"=dword:c41f1f1f

Save that as a reg file and set the values you want for active and inactive accent colors.

Thanks MrGrim. After trying so many different settings to make aeroglass clear on Windows 10 Build 14393. Your settings there worked.

OK, thanks, it's much more informative and helpful than NoelC's reply! The only thing left is how to install #669 but I hope to find an answer here.

P.S. No, I can't find any info here :huh: So you may call this Visual Studio configuration "Release" build  as a "software release" but it's not a true (same as bigmuscle called his shareware project as a "donate-ware" but you are free "to believe whatever you want to believe" (c)

How I install it is. Create folder "AeroGlass" on "C:\" then extract #669 to "C:\AeroGlass" then install "setup-w8.1-1.4.5.exe". That all

you shouldn't install that... just unpack 669 to C:\AeroGlass and then create a task in task scheduler to run aerohost at startup as the SYSTEM user account.

It's exactly what I mean... Two completely different advises (yours, dacrone, probably correct one).

P.S. Hmm, after few tries and reboots I still have:

- incompatibility issue dialog

- nasty label on my desktop (but I already donated 10 €)

You guys still called it release? You are lucky ones, I can tell you :D It's an easy to live with that confidence...

So, my question to bigmuscle (but not to the "community attorneys" :P !) is still open: could you please provide release ETA? Next week, end of September, end of October, end of XXI century - any reply will be welcome :rolleyes:

My Variant to update:
Restart in Safe Mode (click with holding [shift] on Reboot in the Startmenu).
Copy/overwrite all new files to AeroGlass folder, reboot.
 

Symbols:
Install "Windows 10 SDK Kit", copy symbols.cmd to AeroGlass folder, delete the old symbols folder and run the symbols.cmd (it will download the symbols from MS).

symbols.cmd

Conversely, Dev subtracts several days till release for each day no form of ETA is requested. So there IS hope!
As of now, it's up to 22 October for next update

PS Thanks NoelC for your ThemeAtlas
