    Sorry tried to add this to my first post but it insisted on underlining it and continuing the above link despite all efforts to the contrary.

    Also don't forget Aero Glass Tweaker: Aero Glass Tweaker GUI for Win8 v1.3.2 - Windows 8 - MSFN Forum

    At present this is lagging behind the actual Aero Glass mod versions so not much use until it gets updated, but could be useful.

    Check the version details lower down that page before downloading.

    I suppose it would look nice if it worked. I see no effect whatsoever and that theme that is downloaded with it is nowhere to be seen. I stupidly donated 30€ because that guy Thomas has put so much work into it. I wish I'd made a token donation now as I think one has to donate at least 3€ a shot each time it upgrades if one wants to get rid of the watermark.

    One thing I noticed was the installer wanted to install to the root of my main drive C:\ and I did alter that to the correct one for my multi-boot N:\ but I don't see how that could cause it not to work.

    I'm afraid there are so many people posting in the latest thread that it's kind of difficult to get support, so I just gave up for now. I'll give it a shot when AGTweaker gets updated to match that version, if ever. That may make things work. I am not playing around in the registry. (For me it's v1.0 for 8.1)


    I'll update post #1 to reflect the new support threads for Aero Glass Windows 8 & 8.1.

    See my latest post...all is OK.

    Belay the previous tale of woe................I managed to get it working now. Started out from scratch and this time I remembered that one has to restart dwm.exe after dropping the license.key into the AeroGlass folder. After a reboot, I have Aero Glass, whoopee !!
    Now I still have no idea how to adjust it and blur etc. Will have to do some reading.
