    32-Bit generates a C++ Runtime Library Error at startup. Version 0.6 works fine !

    Install Notes:

    1- Copy all files to c:\Windows\System32\DWMHook (or where you prefer)
    2- Edit the REG file to match the location in step 1
    3- Execute the modifyed REG file to merge it into registry
    4- Restart Windows

    Have fun !

    It's very simple !

    There's a file named LoadGlass__AppInit_DLLs.reg. Supposing that you extract the files in ..\System32\DWMHook\, you just need to edit it like this...

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows]
    "LoadAppInit_DLLs"=dword:00000001
    "AppInit_DLLs"="C:\\Windows\\System32\\DWMHook\DWMGlass.dll"
    "RequireSignedAppInit_DLLs"=dword:00000000
    >> Run the file.

    >> Restart.



    I followed all your instructions but still I don't get transparent window borders

    This is great! Just need them to get rid of that pointlessly added hourly nag screen and I'll use it. Been waiting for my Aero to return for so long... but of course the programmer decides to make it too annoying to use!

    They just came out with the Final version (not in Beta anymore) -- and having been testing this throughout the beta program, I can attest that if works fine, now.
