A recent AVG and Avast antivirus update is preventing DisplayFusion 9.9 from launching on some systems.
If you're running into this issue, please update to the latest DisplayFusion 10.0 Beta.

Close Window Attractively

I noticed that when I use BFS.Window.Close on a minimized window, the window is briefly restored before being closed. The result is a flash of the window on the screen before it is closed. I didn't like this.
This script forces the window to minimize and then become transparent. The 300ms pause is to let the minimize animation complete. Only then is it closed, and the flash of the window restoring and closing is invisible. The end product is a more attractive close of windows.
