Im looking for someone who can help me with some DWM stuff. I need to know more about DWM and what files belong to it. After that I want to find a way to replace these files in Windows 8 RTM with the files of the Consumer Preview.
I’ve got a Tablet with the Z670 / GMA 600. And ever since the Release Preview, there are a couple of performance issues related to the DWM. How do I know that?
For example inking isn’t smooth at all. I use a Q550 with a Digitizer and with the CP inking was a lot smoother. There is a workaround for some apps like Windows Journal. There you can go to ‘fullscreen’ mode and it works well again. This is the same with basically everything. Watching a movie in window mode? Not possible. In fullscreen it works.
I already tried the AeroLite Style to get a little bit more performance out of it, but it doesn’t seem enough. Somehow the screen seems to overly refresh it self or something. It gets a lot better if there isn’t any chrome left (no Taskbar / Windowborder).
It would be really great if someone here had an idea how to make it possible. There’s no hope for better WDDM drivers, so it seems to be the only way.
