I don't know if you guys care or not, but when running the beta version, Vue won't work.. Just thought you might like to know.. It seemed like with not beta versions it was alright but now I have to stop it to run Vue..

Can you not set WB 8 to not skin Vue, in the exception list?

Yea, it still won't work unless I stop it altogether... Also have to stop WBCore.exe in task manager..

I see in the feature section of per app skinning Chrome is skinned.  Finally Chrome doesn't default to Windows basic!

So even if you have Windows Aero as the skin and reboot the app does not work?

That's odd. WIndowblinds has been skinning Chrome since I installed it before the betas came out.

Neil,

It will work like that but as soon as I pick a windowblinds skin & run it, it won't start anymore. Windows 7 x64 by the way..

 Skins have been running fine on Chrome for me. I think if you have any theme activated in Chrome than that overrides the Windowsblnd theme.

I use VUE and it works fine. I had to add it to the not to be skinned list but it runs great.

What problems were you having with it?

A minor issue. The line go's all the way around the window even though the preview window. That's why I added it to the do not skin list. I tried both betas .90 and.95

Ahh, the line issue should be gone in the next update which I believe may be on the downloads page already.

Do we have a bug thread yet?

Or do we use the one for the last beta?
