Just thought Id mention that I upgraded to win 7 7068 64-bit build yesterday and so far mirc has not lost its aero. Whereas all the other builds and vista it did. Just thought Id throw that in.

All applications lose Aero in vista when maximised, but this isn't the case in Windows 7.

There's one other case where mIRC might lose glass borders, and that's when there's unicode text in the title bar. mIRC custom draws titlebars with unicode text.

Yeah it was the unicode that was causing the problem, but doesnt appear to be an issue in this version of win 7. I wasnt minimising mirc either.

Dethemeing on UTF8 encoded text drawn to the titlebar still seems to be a problem. I'm running Windows 7 (#7057), my friend is running #7068. We both got dethemed today.

I think I'll just use /titlebar $str($chr(160),600), until this issue is resolved or something.

Oh! Is this why some versions of my mIRC show my curved bottom corners while 6.35's bottom corners are sharp? I like my rounded aero broders. :p
