I have a 9800GT with full Aero glass effects enabled, all the button seems to do is show the desktop as normal. Does anyone have the transparent windows when using the preview desktop button, or does it only work in 6933?

It's a 6933 feature. In 6801 it just shows the desktop.

have you noticed the "preview desktop" option when you right-click on this part of the taskbar? Maybe you need to change a registrykey to enable it. Or you need a special video driver to run this feature.

im guessing you need to edit the registry or the feature isnt there. im only 30% on my download so someone else will have to start searching the registry.

i think that they just added it in the 6933 version cause in other way someone like an hacker would already found a trick to enable it and there will be already a tutorial on google to do it.
MAYBE I AM WRONG!

(sorry for my bad english)

You probably are wrong. Superbar resources are in 6801 (and indeed, there were superbar resources in 6519), so it's clear that they had developed them. Chances are they just cut these extra features at code level.
