DWM also worked for me, in both VMware and Virtual PC 2004. It was extremely buggy and rather slow, but I did get some transparency and cool effects on minimise/open etc (though it seemed very random which effects were active after each restart).

There's a few regkeys that need to be set for it to work, EnableMachineCheck being the most important if yuo are to avoid that error.

you had to force it to work using some registry keys R2 said, once you had enabled them it is all luck to what you will get

This is the exact .reg file you should use. Should work without reboot on next start of uxss.exe.

Code: Select all

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\DWM
EnableMachineCheck=dword:00000000
ForceSoftwareD3D=dword:00000000

That is the joke, exactly.
