I saw some video from Namronia on YouTube which shows the moving stars in DWM. But how can I activate these?

Thank you in advance.

Way back in February 2005 this is what I was using.
You might search to see if its still available somewhere...

You have to create next key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer
MILDesktop:DWORD=1

Then restart shell(logoff/logon or kill & run again explorer.exe)

Scroll down to "User Experience Session Management Service" right-click, click on Properties, and choose Automaitc in the Start-up Type drop-down list. This is required for the animations and transition effects to work.

create a file dwm.reg and type in it:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\DWM]
"EnableMachineCheck"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\explorer]
"MILDesktop"=dword:00000001
"MILExplorer"=dword:00000001

,then double-click on it and click on YES.
The first key is required for you videocard to work with DWM, and the last two keys are required to enable the transparencies in windows and to chage the minimise,maximise and close buttons on windows.

Source page no longer exist.

Read the stickies - DWM Reg keys are listed in the DWM topic.

And the machine check has no effect on 4074 anyway. It'll start on any machine, but if the machine is not powerful enough to run it, it'll simply fail to work.
