Currently ReLive is only possible when you have an Aero theme active.
My problem is: aero themes look awful as hell.
Is there any way to make ReLive work without an Aero theme?
Does Windows® 7 need Aero or DWM enabled for Radeon ReLive to function correctly?
Yes, Windows 7 needs to have Aero/DWM enabled to function."
I do have DWM enabled, at least windows is telling me that. (see screenshot)
