Vistapack 2.6 released

264 posts in this topic

PS I saw a long list of very old bitmaps in wmploc.dll (even some WMP8 resources!), and I don't even know if they're still used... :blink:

I agree that there are many many old resources in wmploc.dll, and that something should be done about it. It's just idiotic that M$ left those, it's like they are doing that intentionally.

Another suggestion, I saw that the icon in the upper corner of Windows Media Player 11 was still the default one.

So I searched in wmploc.dll to find and replace that icon.

I found many of WMP11's default icons in BMP format, I replaced them all to be sure.

And this is the result...

wmpsd5.png

I replaced original BMPs with ResourceHacker, as I don't know how to add them in the pack...

I attached a ZIP file with the Bitmaps to replace: 101.bmp, 2178.bmp, 4012.bmp and 4013.bmp in wmploc.dll.

I hope you like it ;)

This is good suggestion. Damian you should definitely include this. Resource which needs to be replaced for this icon is 4012, but it won't hurt if you replace it all.

Cheers ;)

Damian666

Sure, why not. :D

Cheers ;)

EDIT: I just looked at my Windows Media Player and I sow that all resources already suggested should be replaced, because with that replace icon in WMP when it's minimized in toolbar is replaced too, so it's cool.

hmm... well you know... we not all use that theme, so i think i cant do that man.

it really is not a problem of the pack, more of that theme you see.

i never had that problem, so i think that guy has to fix his theme :D

sorry :D

I don't think so.

I think It's a problem of the pack if the original bmp is 25x20 and your is 16x16.

for those that are interested, i am moving the download location to a better host.

almost unlimited bandwith, and no problems with downloding :D

and because of that, i am creating a update module for the patcher.

it can check for a update on startup, and if its released, prompt the user to get the latest version :D

stay tuned.

well, above mentioned changes are aleady applied, and the little tweaks for the logofftext remover

and the refresher are done too.

i have found someone willing to make me a vista look-alike logon, but as you can see in teh poll, we are tied at the moment :D

so we wait, and for the rest... we will see.

i asked Mara to help me with the updater, i have trouble with the progressbar :D

I have a computer with 2000 on it but i don't have internet so i download files and stuff on a different computer on the a usb and the put it on my computer. When i install Vistapack and check files and then reload files and then pick from the extras and then push the link that reboots your computer all the icons and the taskbar disapear but it does not reboot. (i left the computer go for an hour before i rebooted it my self.)

I Have the Cursors_sounds, screensaver,Tbar,Wallpaper,Vistadrive,Fonts, and True Trans Installed

When i boot up these to things pop up

Problem with shortcut

The drive or network connection that the shortcut 'Tclock3.lnk' refers to is unavalibal. Make sure that the disk is properly inserted or the network resource is available, and then try again

vistapack.exe - Bad Image

The application or DLL F:\WINNT\system 32\uxtheme.dll is not valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette

I push ok on Problem with Shortcut and it goes away

I push ok on the vistapack.exe and this pops up

Vdrive.exe - Bad Image

The application or DLL F:\WINNT\system 32\uxtheme.dll is not valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette

I push ok on the Vdrive.exe and this pops up again

vistapack.exe - Bad Image

The application or DLL F:\WINNT\system 32\uxtheme.dll is not valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette

I push ok and it pops up again

I push ok again it goes away

The Backround, icons, and the Windows have changed

but the Taskbar looks the same but is darker and see through

Also if I have the Tclock3 installed it freazes my computer and I have Sign on as a new user and uninstall it.

I haven't used the atomatic update because i don't have the internet. Do i need to?

Am i doing something wrong? Can you help me? :(

ok, thast a very weird eror man, try uninstalling the true transparency and Tclock3.

try that, and if nothing works, uninstall the whole thing, and try again with a fresh install.

but without the above mentioned extra's.

please report back if done.

we go on from there :D

damian666

p.s, s***, you cant uninstall ofcourse, the patcher doesnt work right?

****...

i will be back in a few.

the " patcher" is the program that changes your files to the vista ones :D

i thought it didnt work becaus you said there was a weird message with the patcher.

but luckly there is no problem uninstalling then :)

so you have a " fresh" install now of 2000?

are you using the latest version? 2.5?

and is your 2000 uptodate? if so, plesae try a clean install of the pack.

let me know, i am currently installing a fresh copy of 2000 in my VM, and will test it too.
