Glass CMD for Vista/Seven

A Small Compiled AutoIt Script that works in the background and enables aero on the background of any new cmd window

Virus Alert Issue: occurs because i use UPX compression, i won't use it in the next version, don't worry guys

Source code : [link]

How To Use :
1 - Open the exe file and it will sits in the tray
2 - Open any new cmd and aero will be applied on it

Works With :
Windows Vista 32Bits and 64Bits
Windows Seven 32Bits and 64Bits

Updates :
* Add Settings.ini File with HideTrayIcon option to hide the tray icon ( to hide it just set the value to 1 )

Updates :
*fix : running in a loop if the exe file was renamed to cmd.exe
*fix : starting in temp directory not in desktop
*changed icon to fediaFedia icon
*now it blurs any new cmd but it stays in taskbar :new:

Credits goes to fediaFedia for this Idea and also for the screenshots and beta testing

Please add a date to notes like "virus alert issue", and please do the next version that won't get me into trouble at work. Thanks.

Thanks for this. Any way you can set an option to strip the frame? Possibly as a settings in the ini. I've seen there are ways to in C++. I have an animated batch I wanted to run in the background on my desktop.
