    Not bad 'cept the debug window has to run in the background.
    It also breaks the Windows 'Fluent Design', aka 'Project Neon'

    Hi,
    the debug window has to run in the background.
    - could you explain further? Thanks.

    Fluent design- yes, well, intrinsically so.

    I followed the instructions here:

    Aero Glass and transparency for Windows 10 Creators Update - Winaero

    The DWM.exe debug prompt runs in the background for a bit then Explorer crashes!

    Broken glass... nasty. Well, it is an experimental build at present. Any feedback would be welcome I guess...
    Aero Glass For Windows 8+ - MSFN

    My plan is not to upgrade to the CU until a stable build of Aeroglass comes out.

    I just made a video yesterday on this beta ( keep in mind you get debug windows and so till the final release ) under CU.
    Aeroglass 1.5.4 BETA et windows 10 creator update ( 1703 ou 15063 ) - YouTube
    Because I have many followers running CU and I just wanted to show them as aeroglass 1.5.4 beta works on 32 apps and modern apps - Got no crash and as Edwin noticed , aeroglass breaks fluent neon design .
    That said , I prefer anniversary update to keep all my OS customisation working and don't plan to upgrade

    Dalchina , you may encounter other issues when fall update will release in September , endless story with aeroglass

    Care to post a screenshot for interest?I have the impression that gives full transparency, not semi-opaque borders.
