    W10 RS3, RS2 = v1-5-7
    W10 RS1 (LTSB 2016) = v1-5-3
    W10 TH2, TH1 (LTSB 2015), W8-1 = v1-4-6
    W8-0 = v1-3

    ...so you should update to v1-5-3

    I use windows 10 enterprise ltsb 1607 fully updated via windows update.
    and aeroglass 1.5.1 works perfectly. it downloads icons sometimes after windows update but works perfectly.

    the problem with 1.5.3 or higher. i tested them it was freezing sometimes, and it was creating 500mb+ dump files all the time in my little 60gb ssd. so i went back to 1.5.1

    and i don't like transparancy on my settings title etc..

    It's your choice, which version will you use.
    Dunno, because all RS1, AG v1-5-1 and AG v1-5-3 are outdated SW, I am on RS3 + AG v1-5-7, so I can't tell you.

    It is interesting, that Metro-app frames and Titles now have Aero without ModernFrame.dll...
    ...also I noted, that on RS3 and RS2 x32 is no longer supported.

    Did BigMuscle guy tell anything about these two things?

    Yes, BigMuscle stated already that he has permanently dropped support for 32 bit systems. As for Modern Frame he currently still appears to be keeping it supported, albeit at a limited capacity due to how much harder MS makes it to implement with each new build. Currently I am using AeroGlass 1.5.7 for RS3 with the Win10SDK method for making it work a bit more cleanly with modern frame but the apps that have no title bar still don't get properly effected due to how much MS has effected the modern frame support with the FCU build. It may be a while before the modern frame is fully functional and that's 'supposing' it's even possible anymore to get it to work with Fluent Design and the apps that don't have their own title bar.

    As for transparency in the modern app title bar. The modernframe.dll isnt really responsible for that. If you didnt have it without modernrame.dll before then yours likely wasnt fully applying. ModernFrame.dll allowed the theme atlas images and custom .msstyle themes to fully theme the modern app frames. Other than that the transparency in modern app title bars was actually not part of modernframe.dll but instead just part of aeroglass in whole.

    It still possible to combine aeroglass 1.5.7 with modernframe 1.5.5. After that you need to load symbols from internet and restart Windows. But modernframe 1.5.5 breaks transparency Fluent Design System for UWP exactly like version 1.5.5/1.5.6 for Windows 1703. Bigmuscle can't solve this trouble since 1.5.4.

    Thanks for the answers guys. :)

    BTW1: I have updated nVidia drivers yesterday (to b388-71) and to prevent the dwm.exe crash during the driver update, I recommend to temporarily stop AeroGlass (I use Aero Glass Launcher program for that.) before driver updating and then run AeroGlass again after the driver update is completed.

    BTW2: With RS3 it seems, that number of changes made by MS from RS2 has lowered. I remember that I could even run v1-5-6 in the past on RS3. Also, the fact that RS3 and RS2 both use the same v1-5-7 says, that maybe MS will not make dramatic changes in DWM in the future too.
