Blur behind transparent WPF window

I am trying to create a WPF application with a semi transparent border-less window that blurs the background behind it.

Here is an example of what I want to do. Screenshot

I have tried to use

DwmEnableBlurBehindWindow
which works only on windows Vista/7.

I am trying to find a solution that will work on Windows 7, 8 and 10.

For anyone interested I have found a solution for Windows 10, It looks as though it isn't possible on Windows 8, like David Heffernan mentioned, DwmEnableBlurBehindWindow was removed from Windows 8, however Microsoft re-introduced a solution for achieving this effect in Windows 10.
