I asked for an Option to deactivate the windows frames month ago!
I hope compatibility mode does not provoke errors... so i still have to force it that way :o

The MediaMonkey Developer should be aware, that this can be essential for success of the software. The frames should be default off and there has to be an option in the settings.

--
I am using MM for Windows and Android incl. sync because it is the only software, not spying and able to do everything i need.
I really hope the developers have changed the default sync paths / settings to my suggestions in an other topic to prevent the missing songs bug @sync to new users by now?!

I searched the whole forum for this. Thank you very much. Compatibility Mode Windows XP SP 3 does remove the windows window frame. Nice!

I hope this does not affect the performance.

I don't think they worded it correctly to get across what they meant. They weren't trying to say to run it in compatibility mode with it set as those two OSes. Instead, they're saying that in those two OSes, you have to run compatibility mode (set to a non-Aero OS, thus XP)

I found that running it in Windows 7 or Vista and any of its service packs didn't help. Only when I ran MM4 in XP Service Pack 3 did the aero (glass) frame disappear.

Depends what you want aero and what you dont want aero. Majority of MM4 skins have aero frame however there's about a half-half split when it comes to whether the player is aero or not. For convenience, make non-aero player with aero frame, makes skinning a little bit easier.

Yes. This settings.ini is located inside the skin folder.

Ahhh. yes, I totally agree there.
I misunderstood, I thought the settings.ini wasn't in the skin and was comparing it to that.

In fact.. that almost sounds like the same option..

So while before the skin could look how it wanted and you could overide it with windows if you wanted, now, the skins is very limited, and you can overide it if you like editing settings files manually..

hmm.
I disagree.

It's the skiner's choice to decide if the aero frame suits his skin or not. And it should stay that way.

Most other MM4 skinning features are added to the wiki:

There's only one Settings.ini file. It's called 'Settings.ini' right in the root folder of the skin.

you can make a entry in the Settings.ini :

[System]
ForceDisableAero=0/1 - allows skin to disable Aero for MM (introduced in MM4 build 1415)

This disable the Aero frame and other Aero feature's
and you can skin the frame like in MM3 .
Completely forgot that :oops:
