xp themes?


Recommended Posts

This is the one I'm using right now:

http://www.neowin.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=559182

I use it because it looks like an early release Vista Home Basic and Home Basic doesn't have Aurora [glass windows], so it all works perfectly :D

In the meantime, you should also download this:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/deta ... laylang=en

It contains 2 fonts that are famous for being default on Vista-- Segoe UI and Calibri.

I did a complete (sounds, icons, cursors, toolbars, windows (except glass), boot screen, logon screen, system tray clock, start button, start menu, font, dock, sidebar, pretty much everything) transformation of my XP to Vista. It is awesome.

Try googling "Windows X Vista Transformation Pack" and the first link I think.

I don't know if they've updated, but when I tried that - and later uninstalled - it left half of the changes behind, which for the icons weren't so bad but it was the other things that wasn't so good :evil:

Which is why I go for visual styles only and not these packs.

Having said that though, Flyakite is an excellent PC to Mac pack, and free.

The whole uxtheme.dll thing is bad for me... the auto replacers never work...

I know how to manually replace it by searching and renaming all the other uxtheme's but I just don't feel like taking a risk.

I've done the uxtheme patcher 2 times (one on each of my computers) and it worked flawlessly.

BTW, there isn't any risk unless you forget to copy your current uztheme.dll.
