There seems to be a bug in it where I cannot drag and drop to a minimized window.

Normally if you drag an object over the taskbar button of a minimized window, the window will be restored and you'll be able to drop the item to it. But if BorderSkin is running, the window isn't restored when you drag the object over the taskbar button.

Hi komalo and PeterRollar!

First I want to say that I'm really glad that you're back on work ;)
Second I heard that BorderSkin has a virus in it, but that's a fake, isn't that?
Third I have problems with BorderSkin.. It won't work at all.. I already put your fix file in the folder (And yes, I renamed it) but got still a crash.. It says: (For Peter: BorderSkin.exe hat ein Problem festgestellt und muss beendet werden.) Well, the BorderSkin.exe found a problem and has to be killed now.
Don't know how to fix it?

Sorry Komalo!
This version will absolutely not work for me. With or without fix makes no difference.I made a screenshot, that you can see it.

After starting BS i can reach the optionsmenu and the exclusion manager without problems.But nothing happens. After clicking the OK button in the little window, the trayicon disappears by mouseover.No error message or something.

did you rename the file to "BorderSkin.dll" ? i forgot to mention that, the purpose of that to replace the existing "BorderSkin.dll" with the new one

It works now, but only if not maximized.When i maximize the window, a part of the smaller window stays visible.
Look at it here:

Otherwise it works fine. No more 4096 bug.Who has made this skin btw.?

i still until now suffer from the maximizing problems, it is really annoying, but i currently use a new way to redefine the position of maximized windows, does it positioned correctly in all windows ?

Me, CeIIular gave me the frames of normal and explorer frames when i was developing 0.2.4, then i made a skin from it, but it still needs some configurations for color schemes, i only configured Clear, Default, Teal, Graphite, Frost
still haven't made the rest

Ok, so the only problem i seem to be having now is every once in awhile i see the default windows border UNDER your glass border skin. Then if i simply move the window a little bit it disappears again leaving on the glass border.
