    BigMuscle said back on 3/21:

    As it is now released on MSDN, Microsoft is now serving the symbols updates. If you donated to BM, as of today around noon, it just downloaded them and it started working again.

    You can download them manually as well now.

    Guess it's because I tried in VMware, it posted a error about "not compatible DWM", and didn't go away even after reboot. :eek:

    1.3 is only for Windows 8 not 8.1

    I've never used Aero Glass before so I have a question: Isn't aero suppose to work out-of-the box with Aero Glass installed without the symbols folder copied to the installation folder?

    Also I need the watermark removed.

    You need to create C:\AeroGlass\symbols folder, then copy over the content of matching symbols folder from the archive. Do not copy any other files!

    And the AeroGlass setup creates a folder C:\AeroGlass itself during tht setup.Here is something wrong....After system restore as single way to make this computer works here I found two folders named AeroGlass in the root of C:\ :One created by me before setup,another one created by setup:eek::eek:

    As said, no clue what the other files are for. I copied only the content of symbols folder from the package and pasted to C:\AeroGlass\symbols, not the other files included, then installed AeroGlass 1.2.1.

    The Setup noticed that there already exists a folder and asked me whether to install to it anyway :g:.
