    Aero Glass / Flip 3D with Vista Home Basic

    Hi there,

    We can easily find in several forums the registry change that must be done
    in order to activate the "Aero Glass" style.

    Regedit: HKCU/Software/Microsoft/Windows/DWM/
    Composition = 1
    CompositionPolicy = 2

    Right click Command Prompt and run as admin:
    net stop uxsms
    net start uxsms

    After changing registry I can see Aero was activated, however I don't have
    the glass and transparency styles as well as the Flip 3D. As information, my
    system supports Aero.
    Does Vista Home Basic have this feature? How to enable it then?

    Thanks,
    Gustavo.

    Hi Gustavo,

    You missed changing the ColorizationOpaqueBlend to 0. It is responsible for the tranparency feature.

    See this tutorial for how:

    Windows Vista Home Basic only supports Windows Aero 'Standard' not Glass,
    Flip 3D and the new Alt Tab are not supported in this edition of the OS, you
    will need to upgrade to a higher SKU such as Vista Home Premium, Business or
    Ultimate.
