How to get full DWM in Longhorn 5048 without any crash or error.
Go to Start-Run type services.msc and hit OK. Look for User Experience Session Management Service, set it to Automatic.
Open regedit and scrool to HKLM/software/microsoft/ and create a new key, DWM. Open that key and create these dwords:
EnableMachineCheck - set it to 0
Glass -set it to 1
Metal -set it to 0
UseAlternateButtons -set to 0
ForceSoftwareD3D (BE SURE TO SET IT CORRECTLY OR DWM WILL CRASH EXPLORER.EXE AND FREZE DISPLAY OR GET A BLANK SCREEN)-set to 0 if on VMWare, if on VPC or an old pc etc. set it to 1 or DWM will crash. :|
Now open notepad and type rundll32.exe udwm.dll DwmClientStartup. Save the file as DWM.bat ,file type "All files" and put it to the startup folder.
Restart the PC or VM and you will get DWM.

NOTE: Don't use VirtualBox, it isn't compatible with DWM. And if you are trying it on a PC with a LDDM driver, then skip the registry editing part. And sometimes animations don't work, if so restart the PC or VM.

I'm now installing 5048 and I will try what you say.

I want to ask you a question: How did you find it? I mean, why do you know that by setting these keys the DWM will work? You just try some keyword or searched in system and found sth about it?

Thank you!

And I found that keys on the Internet but it was crashing initially(only on my old PC). Then I found the ForceSoftwareD3D key, I set it to 1 and it was finally stable and working.

I did this and got black boxes around windows and some animations didn't work.

But this is the most stable build i found that works almost perfectly on my desktop.

I used my physical computer.
And used WinXP x64 drivers since there are no LDDM drivers for my card.

thats why you disable hardware check via registry
and it will use CPU for DWM and animations since ... again at the time many gpu's were not supported

Exactly, as there are no LDDM drivers for most GPUs, including VMware, graphics cards like Radeon 9600 and 9800 are the only ones that support LDDM.

Works great in VMware! I now have this and 4074 working perfectly in VMware 7.1.4. (if only I could get my favorite build, 4039, working on VMware) What does use alternate buttons do?

It makes the Close, Minimize/Restore and Maximize look like this: http://www.betaarchive.com/wiki/images/ ... 048DWM.png

Those look like the buttons on 4039 when DWM is active, interesting.

Weird... I had to set ForceSoftwareD3D to 1 in VMWare... Is it because of missing drivers? Also had to reset when changing resolution... However good tutorial! Got DWM after all

Is it normal for the animations to not work at all in VirtualBox?

ForceSoftwareD3D is unnecessary in 5048.

Yes it is. Virtual Box is incompatible with DWM. Use VMware.

No, it is necessary if you are trying to get DWM on VirtualPC or an older PC without a LDDM graphics card, otherwise DWM crashes.

It isn't. All you need is the UXSMS service to work properly which is also easy to fix, will place a tutorial here on how to do it later.
