Force Enable Windows Aero Glass or WDM on Unsupported and WDDM-Incomptible Graphics Card

Posted by Zwe on March 26, 2009

If your graphic card doesn’t support Windows Aero Glass, here a trick that you can try to force Windows Vista to enable Windows Aero Glass on Non-WDDM Compatible or Not Aero Supported graphics accelerator card or processor, by disabling the check Windows Vista made to determines if your system hardware fulfills minimum requirements for Aero Glass window frame transparency.

Note: This method may or may not works with current RTM release of Windows Vista (user feedback welcome), and may cause a blue screen loop or constant flicker, so use with care and proper backup is a must.

1. Click on Start button, then select Run.
2. Type “regedit” (without the quotes). (If you do not turn of UAC, you have to run as administrator: Right click on Command Prompt accessible from All Programs -> Accessories, then select “Run as Administrator”, click on “Allow” from the Windows Security dialog, then run “regedit”.)
3. Browse or navigate to the following registry branch:

4. Create a new registry branch called DWM. (If DWM doesn’t work, try to create and use WDM registry branch instead.)
5. Inside the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\DWM\ registry branch, create a new DWORD subkey called EnableMachineCheck.
6. Right click on EnableMachineCheck (or double click on it) to set the value to 0.
7. Repeat above two steps to create another DWORD called Blur, and set the value to 0.
8. Repeat again the steps to create another DWORD called Animations and set that to 0.

Last two steps is to disable the blurring and animations effects to lessen the load burden on your graphics card so that the system will be responsive.

You can also disable slow animation effect, which slowly minimize or slowly close the window(s) when the “Shift” Key is held when you minimize or close a window with “AnimationsShiftKey”, disable use of Elongated Buttons with “UseAlternateButtons”, or disable Aero Glass Copy and Paste with “Glass”. To enable any of them, simply modify the value to 1.

    one more thing, after you do all of that, in run type in “CMD” and then right-click cmd, and click “Run as administrator“then type in “net stop uxsms” then “net start uxsms” and then right-click on your deskop, and click “personalize” and then click “windows color and appearance” and then in the drop down menu,
    click the windows aero theme.

    i tried hard to find wddm driver for 915 gm it doesn’t. i think that windows 7 has nothing different then windows xp without it’s awesome graphic so i am moving to windows xp or the great kali linux its my free advice that if windows 7 can’t give us aero then why our pc load so much i am moving to xp……………

  14. gamotdvs said

  15. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to
    be actually something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and very broad for me.
    I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

  16. Friends a simple software to make windows transparent just visit :-
