Windows 7: Disabling titlebar transparency for one program

Disabling titlebar transparency for one program

I have two applications. One is a game, another is a helper (sadly, not updated any longer). The helper program modifies the titlebar of the game with some stats.

It displays correctly in XP, when I have Aero turned off and when I have clicked "Disable Desktop Composition" in compatability, but not when Aero is running.

I'd like to disable aero (or just the titlebar transparency) for only this program but keep Aero running for everything else, is that possible?

Hey
Ok I know there is a way to do it and Im sure there is a tutorial for it in the tutorials section. Once you know how to do it you probably will know how to disable it for the game and helper.

Hope this helps

Sadly there isn't, as I've already checked.

Sorry for bumping an old thread, but has this been fixed/added in the final release version of Windows 7?
