Aero Patch change log

Aero Patch 1.4
"This copy of Windows is not genuine" fixed. Probably you'll never see it again.
Warning!Actually your Windows will be not genuine, but you will not receive notification messages. Aero Patch is still harmful for your OS, use it if you strongly sure what you need Aero.
Aero Patch 1.2
Added uninstaller. Go to Control Panel - Programs - Uninstall a program to completely remove Aero patch and rollback all changes.
Aero Patch 1.0
Initial release.

How to install Aero Patch
1. Uninstall our Personalization Panel and Personalization panel DWM controller sowtare if they was installed. They are incompatible with Aero Patch.
2. Unpack Aeropatch1.4.exe from downloaded zip archive. Right click on the extracted file and select "Run as administrator". Your Windows will be rebooted. Just wait when it will be done.
3. Enjoy Aero and native personalization.

Both x86 and x64 systems are supported.

Here is the video of Windows 7 Starter.

    >>It reboots but nothing happens.
    After this you have to right click on desktop and select personalization. You will able to use it like in Windows 7 Ultimate

  29. Sergey
    21 Aug 11

    I think you can't because this patch unlocks Aero where it locked programmatically. In your case it is hardware limitations.

    for starter this patch does following:

    adds uDWM.DLL
    renames slc.dll to sl2.dll
    adds new slc.dll (patch core)

    01 Sep 11

    Is it safe? Could I use Windows Update after applying it?

  41. johnlth93
    01 Sep 11

    Yo thanks for quick reply but i saw the install log just now

    Here's the log : http;//pastebin,com/whX6yNGh
    Those are the changes on my Win 7 Starter x86(32bit)

    And btw a notice for all, you're adviced to validate your Windows before patching. You can try validate after patch, it will say that you maybe have alter files that required to do validation. No harm done i believe, just some md5/sha1 check for files integrity.

    @above, i do believe that Windows Update is alright after that, as long as your copy of Windows is validated as Genuine.

    Thanks and nice tools btw.

    I reported in an earlier post that the ability to change the desktop wallpaper had stopped working after about a week. I have found that if I select a new wallpaper (selection does not happen and does not show) and then reboot my computer the new wallpaper will be applied. I'm hoping a future update will to this patch will fix this little bug. Other than that minor inconvenience, this is a great patch.

    It does not pick up *.themepack like your other program does pls make it associated with this program in the next version

    Since its not picking up the theme's automatically how do i install them?

  47. Sergey
    05 Sep 11

    Actually, that patch is not my program. It was developed by Mr .dUSHA and was shared at russian forum. I have uploaded it here to provide useful download for non-russian spoken users.
    For themepacks you can use 7-zip archiver. Using 7-zip you can extract all wallpapers and theme file.
    Also, you can use this

  48. AtoS
    05 Sep 11

    Crap this is actually quite nice with shell integration. Ohh well the other question is that would installing your program along with this result in any kind of compatibility issues.

    You should make a small utility to install themas i tried to install using winrar/7zip method but it did not show up in the personalization choices.

    I keep getting this pop up message from Windows activation saying. "This copy of Windows may not be gueniune,Windows will restart your computer to apply repairs." And then after my computer restarts I find that Windows has disabled the Aero patch. But when I reinstall it again it works and then a few minutes later,I get the same pop up message.

    But my Windows is activated but it seems every time I renable the Aero patch,I get the same mesage and Windows just uninstalls it again.

    actually Windows 8 has no start button. that's why it was hidden in 8 skin pack. unfortunately, I don't know skinpack better than this.

    Can I change wallpaper too with this patch after I uninstall Personalization panel as you say? What will happen to context menu Personalize item? Also how it is Harmful for Os, will I be able to get updates from windows after installing it? Thanks for looking at my Q.s!

    You will able to receive updates. Also you will get native "personalization" menu. This patch completely unlocks Wallpaper, Aero/Glass and all other personalization features including desktop context menu.

    ¿Que tal? Antes que nada, te agradezco mucho por este programita, está muy bueno. Sin embargo, me ha ocurrido algo raro últimamente, y es que después de instalarlo no me sale la opción Personalizar haciendo click derecho sobre el Escritorio.

    Dogma_central, try to reinstall the Aero Patch.
    Depending of version you have you may run it two times to reinstall, or, if you are user of version 1.4, you can use "Unistall a program" control panel feature to remove it and then install it again.

    What is your version of AeroPatch?
    If it is 1.4, it has line at Control Panel - Uninstall a program.
    Click on it and uninstall Aero patch
    Then install it again.
    If your version of Aero Patch is below 1.4, you just need to run aero patch twice: first to uninstall and second to install it again.
    I do hope this was helpful for you.

    Hello, and sorry if this has been asked before, but I run the patch and apparently nothing happens at first for a long time, so I rebooted my computer and now Aero is clearly working (I have transparent bars and effects and that kind of stuff) but I didn't get the "Personalize" button on my menu nor I can get to the personalization window. I have Windows 7 Home Basic BTW and used to have personalization panel, but uninstalled it before I downloaded this patch just as I was told to.

  169. Sergey
    12 Jun 12

    It seems to be a bug in version 1.4
    Mick92, I will contact the author. It will be fixed.
    Use 7-zip software and unpack patch content. You will see Persionalization.inf file. Right click and choose "install". You will get Peronalization option in the menu

    I have included the previous version in atchive. Use it if 1.4 does not works for you.

    Use 1.2 patch if v1.4 fails for you.
    I have contacted with author and he found no issue with version 1.4
    I guess I have to look closely to patch by myslef.
    Before this you you can try with version 1.2 .

    For those having problems changing wallpaper, in my case it was because the wallpaper was being used by another process. On my machine it was Samsung Easy Display Manager, known in Task Manager as dmhkcore.exe. Stop the process in Task Manager, make your wallpaper change, then restart the program from the start menu.

    The latest version won't uninstall.
    I was having trouble when using the previous version, [1.2] so I uninstalled and then installed 1.4; the personalise option won't appear in the control panel or when I right click on the desktop, although my windows now use Aero Glass. And it won't uninstall...

  222. Thx

    Correction(s): It uninstalls from "Default Programs"; the remaining problems are:
    ‣1.4:the personalise option won't appear in the control panel or when I right click on the desktop.
    ‣1.2:The slideshow isn't working and the icons and the themes applied are mismatched. And before the trouble started I'd been using it without trouble since February.

    Anyone have any idea why I can't get this to install on a HP Mini netbook? I ran it on an Acer Aspire netbook and it installed no problem (and works beautifully, yes!). Both netbooks are Windows 7 Starter. On the Acer I see it in CCleaner's installed programs list (X PROJECT Personalization Panel 1.4). No matter how times I run it on the HP it never installs nor shows as installed in CCleaner. I'm running the install with avast anti-virus disabled (and avast never reports it on restart nor nothing in it's chest). I'm running the installer as Administrator and the user profile is Administrator as well. I tried it with a different Administrator account. I also checked "personalize" in regedit via a search and it's not returning anything. I'm stumped! Any ideas? The only difference I know of between the two netbooks is the HP had Personalization Panel DWB v2.5 installed on it but it's been uninstalled (and isn't showing as installed). thanks!---

    This is awesome!!! At first it did not work, and had to reboot my netbook twice, still wasnt working for me. I even tried going through Computer>rightclick>Properties>Advance System Settings>Performance> Data Execution Prevention - to bypass the aero patch just to try and see if it works but no luck. Then I had customized my Visual Effect settings in Control Panel > Performance Information and Tools > Adjust Visual Effects and made sure that these three are enabled :
    *Animate controls and elements inside windows
    *Enable desktop composition
    *Use visual styles on windows and buttons.
    Then went on to the Services and made sure that The Desktop Window Manager Session Manager and Themes Services need to be set as Started and Automatic. It only gave me two option Stop and Restarted, so I hit Restarted and voila!!! its perfect!!!^_^ thank you so much for sharing this ^_^

    The first time I tried this patch, it worked and I had Personalization Panel installed with it but then I removed everything from my netbook because I wanted to give Linux a try. Now, Personalization Panel works fine but whenever I try the patch, when I reboot my netbook I end up getting that dreaded blue screen and I have to get Windows to repair whatever happened. This is really frustrating because this happens whether Personalization Panel is installed or not.

    Thank you it works perfectly in seven home basic.

    But i had problems with windows (not because of aero path) and had to do "sfc /scannow". When i restarted pc the path did not work anymore but the personalization button was still there. When i clicked it, windows said aero was not enabled in basic version.

    The problem is when i tried to reinstall it, because is known that to uninstall aero path all you have to do is run it again.
    I tried to install again but nothing happened. The button was still there but did not work. So i tried the "previous" version and then button disapeared. I restarted and tried to install again. Nothing!

    In the end i had to restore system to a very previous point, run sfc /scannow and then reinstall the path.

    All im trying to say is that there should be two separated files in the path.
    One to install and the other only to uninstall. Because what if windows update causes that problem too?

    I have extracted it. When I run "aeropatch1.4.exe" ad Administrator, it asks for UAC prompt. When i click on YES, nothing happens. It doesn't get rebooted. Please help.

    I wasn't care about Uninstall our Personalization Panel and Personalization panel DWM controller sowtare if they was installed. They are incompatible with Aero Patch, then because I like this, I will reinstall this patch after uninstall the personalization panel. The bug is the system color scheme was not shown (I ignored that), however, working with things like AeroRainbow and Windows 7 Home Basic Color Changer is nice at all.
