    Complaints:
    1) The title text in some windows has an ugly background
    2) It's totally transparent, with no blur effect.

    Don't be afraid. It's pretty stable.

    ~edit~

    Beta 2 (v0.8) was released last week: https://developer.berlios.de/project...group_id=13124

    I'm running DWMHook64 v0.8 for some hours and it seems that the popup window has gone !


    Thanks for mentioning. I'll take a look.

    That says v0.8 so it's the same as the one released on vrosa's link above. Get it from there.

    It is annoying there no need to program that in for a popup. It even happens on v0.8

    Note: Setting Feature Level to DX11.1 crashes explorer.exe and gives black screen. All other settings are safe !


    HEY BAD COKE ROBOT!

    I didn't read your little addendum there on the bottom about DX 11 and guess what I did... HAHAHAH! I was lucky, I had a restore point from last night and it worked. It also proved a theory I had about why my system restore does not work on my other system, because the system spans 2 drives on that one, but not on this one.

    When I tried the automatic modes, it was giving me some serious errors and and got stuck in a DWHook debug loop that "abort" was not stopping- I WAS able to shut off the "Aero Glass" and recover, but I was stooopid and tried that DX 11 setting. It did just what you said!

    So, which one of these tweeks has worked the best?

    (Edit - Oops, it wasn't Coke who posted that but vrosa, my bad)

    This is very nice, but at first I wasnt convinced that it was working. I didnt notice a bit more transparency/tranlucency (not sure which is the right term, but I do know the difference. I still want the 100% pure Windows 7 look that Aero Glass had in that OS. Besides applying this fix is there anything else I should do/can try? As it stands now I'm still waiting on the new WindowBlinds 8 to be released for Windows 8, hopefully it will give the 7 look while allowing for skinning, custom themes, etc. I dont mind paying if that's what it takes to get the eye candy back, my machine can handle it. Or maybe M$ will reintroduce it when Windows Blue is released.

    does this increase windows DWM's RAM/CPU usage? or maybe possibly memory leaks?

    It's possible.
    Newer versions will stabilize but the earlier ones mentioned something about memory leaks. See the changelog of each version if you're interested.

    Am testing the latest version, and at the present time everything is working just great. Also like the fact it is no longer pure glass, but allows burr.

    Thus far (after three hours) the notice I posted about a little while back is not happening. . .knock on wood. . .
