Aeroglass stopped working for me

Recommended Posts


Are any of these the 1809 Symbols? I want to try 1809 in a VM first before I update as Aero Glass is seemingly working well with it out of the box.

It doesn't work well with 1809. Symbols won't help, Aero Glass has to be updated again.

Ah okay I wondered because one user here claimed it did. I'll wait then, AeroGlass always comes first for me.

It doesn't crash right away, but blur doesn't work and it breaks the programs' preview thumbnails in the taskbar.

Windows installed another update that broke it again.  Fortunately I found a link to the new symbols file and it fixed it.

Boy, this is a real cat-and-mouse game with Microsoft!  ^sigh^.

Could you please provide the link to the new symbols file?

EDIT: Nvm, I found them myself. If someone encouters the same issue after the latest cumulative Windows 10 update, you can download the appropriate symbols with this tool:

Just select the dwmcore.dll in C:\Windows\System32.

Guys, I've got a great tip.

After my Aero Glass was restored, I noticed that it still didn't work with the Chrome browser.  So, I did some investigation and found this:

Go to this URL:
chrome://flags/#windows10-custom-titlebar

And turn off "Let Chrome override the behavior of drawing the title bar".

It's explained in this message thread:

Enjoy!

Try this:

1) Go to your AeroGlass install folder, and then open the 'symbols' followed by the 'dwmcore.pdb' folders.

Okay, I registered only because I've been trying to follow the instructions on the new updates, and here is where I find the first snag.

 

I have version 1.5.9, and I've uninstalled and reinstalled several times, and there is no "symbols" or "dwmcore.pdb" folders in my AeroGlass folder. It's just one with all the files. So do I create those folders too?

 

Next, I now have W10 version 1803 and build 17134.345, so I guess all the links to the files no longer work for me.

 

However, now we have this:

I looked at the Github site, downloaded that PDB-Downloader, extracted it...and...is it supposed to run or install? Do I copy it somewhere?

I found the dwmcore.dll file in my System32 folder, and I copied that to the AG folder and it still doesn't work.
