2 problems/issues with Glass8 and Win10 anniversary update


Recommended Posts

Hello Bigmuscle and fellow Glass8 users!
I run Windows 10 mit Glass8 on my Desktop PC, and since the anniversary update I have to randomly recurring problems with Glass8.

1. White window borders
Normally, all is working fie, but on some windows starts I get white window borders instead of glassy ones. See attached screenshot.
debug.log shows nothing out of the ordinary as far as I can tell.
when this happens, DWM seems to run into some kind of memory leak as it grabs more and more RAM for itself.  Normally it uses about 17-20MB, as you can see in the screenshot, I had already over 300MB allocated after maybe 15 minutes.
I then restart windows and the issue is gone, glass is back and DWM runs normal.

2. Glass8 theme not applied
This also happens randomly and more often than the first issue. According to the debug.log the standard theme (which I am using) is loaded, but the window border is just glass without a theme.
I can either restart Windows or just apply the theme again using the GUI. Then the theme is loaded correctly.
I tried the configure it using the GUI in admin mode, but that did not help.
I also searched the registry with regedit related reg keys, as I have moved the install location. There was one key with the old path to the theme, which corresponded to a file not found error in the debug log where aerohost used the old path to the theme file. I have corrected this and the path is correct now, but the issue still randomly appears. Here it appeared directly after the reboot I did because of issue 1.

Maybe someone has a clue or idea what could be the cause of this issues?
I will gladly provide any information or logfile needed, just tell me what I have to do. Thanks!

I did a complete reinstall of Glass8 after cleaning the registry.

After that it looked like both issues were gone, however the issue with the white windows frame and memory leak on DWM still happens sporadically.
I checked the logfile again and found this:

Seems to me like there is a problem with the Direct3D Device?
If I log out and log in again, the white frame is gone after initialisation of the DWM.

I am using a Geforce GTX 1070 graphics card in this computer. Latest driver installed.
