    win81_x64_alpha1.7z DWMGlass.dll has a timebomb, which just turns Aero Glass OFF, every hour, or so.

    Use Restart AeroGlass.cmd, to Restart Aero Glass from desktop, when timebomb has turned OFF Aero Glass .

    Copy Codes and Save As Restart AeroGlass.cmd with Notepad

    Code:
    @ECHO OFF
    
    :aerohost startup.
    tskill dwm
    schtasks /run /tn "aero glass"
    start c:\aeroglass\aerohost.exe
    net stop themes
    net start themes
    
    :pnukeaero startup and conhost shutdown.
    tskill pnukeaero
    start c:\aeroglass\pnukeaero.exe
    timeout /t 1
    tskill conhost

    Timebomb, does not restart anything, it just turns Aero Glass OFF every hour or so, but Restart AeroGlass.cmd will turn it back on from desktop.

    Great job Ace2, it works a lot better this time. For those of us who still have EnableBlur.exe how would we get it to work with this method please?

    There is no public DWMGlass.dll v1.2.6 release, at the moment.

    This method works with windows 10 tp build 9879 as well, and needed symbol is now online (uDWM.pdb).

    Why can't the current version of DWMGlass.dll work for. It annoying having to switch it on every hour. Isn't there a way to make it say on permanently. Also hoping it not long until BigMuscle releases a Beta for it.

    Because the current version is intended for Windows 8.1 which has different DWM.
