xpize 5 lite

21 posts in this topic

Okay, there's no possibility to save selections during xpize install and I do a lot of them :), e.g. I don't install visual styles (except some Luna Element bitmaps for wizards), themes, cursors and skins, also I have to remove some files from temp directory during install to keep logon/logoff buttons unpatched. Therefore I decided to try to create some lite package without all of these elements just for myself, which exactly meets my personal needs. Well, I still can't believe it, but it seems like it works :). The question is: does anyone also interested in the xpize 5 lite? Remember that it only patches icons, bitmaps and animations.

I do a lot of un-selections too.

I just install all icons, Blue element bitmaps and the Microsoft signed themes.

I'll like it!

I just want to make my XP became a XP, i don't want it:

neater it:

I think it neads a new option to just patch icons and add the blues wizards (), and no logonui, and others themes (just the signed by MS)

I like the idea a lot

Okay, I've uploaded it here - http://www.filesavr.com/xpize5lite01 . Remember this is customized package that I use myself, and it may not meet your personal needs. Also this is my first experience and it may contain some bugs (and I'm sure it does :)). Thanks :)

I do support on your project. The aim of xpize is to make Windows XP more XP (style-matched), this is what I have mentioned in this forum many many times. All other customizations should theoretically not included in the application. If those users wanna make their XP more fashioned or stylish, they may download this type of software on the web for another purpose.

By the way, it is unreachable about your upload "http://www.filesavr.com/xpize5lite01", is it available if you put it on another upload server?

Yeah, it has been downloaded 8 times, and it was removed automatically after a week of non activity. Please advise me some nice upload server, and I'll upload it once more :).

Sendspace, Rapidshare, Megaupload and Yousendit are all upload servers I am used to. You can choose one which all xpize users are permitted by their ISP.

@Hellraiser

Try Windows Live Skydrive. You get 25gb free disk space. You make any portion of the space available to public by a hyperlink, supports drag n' drop with XP Windows Explorer, and the account does not expire.

Also Adrive, my favorite provides 50gb of free disk space, but no drag n' drop with free service.

Lastly, Dropbox which only provides 2gb of space but upgradeable by paid subscription, buts support real disk syncing form your desktop. Basically, you use the space as a Windows Share, and if you want to sync you copy your file to your Dropbox share. Great for documentation or small .exe files.

@Hell Racer

The plugin is a little hard to find. You have to use IE to see it and download it. If you want, I can upload it to Skydrive and provide a link. Let me know.

** A NEW XPIZE r6 LITE MOD!! **

Hi guys!!

I just finished packing an XPIZE MOD based on HELL RACER's release6b. (so all credits to w3bbo and hellracer) ;)

@hell racer: I added a "C" in the info, to show that is based on your mod. If you have any problems with it, I don't mind renaming it.

CHANGE LIST:

What was REMOVED in this "lite version":

* black and embedded themes

* MCE theme replaced by the BLUE theme (although it will still be named as "MCE" in the setup)

* hardware-specific mods (bluetooth, realtek audio, etc)

* xpize screensaver (I kept XP 3D flag!)

* xpize system info

* the blue boot screen

* WinRAR and 7Zip customizations ('cause I use powerarchiver :P)

* SOME visual styles (just kept Luna and Luna Royale)

* SOME of the wallpapers removed too

* removed support of remote desktop 5.2

* removed the "optional" timedate.cpl tweak (makes clock look uglier)

* old 3d cursor

* file icons (pdf, wav, etc..)

etc... check it out ;)

ENHANCEMENTS:

* Support for Remote Desktop Connection 6.1

* mstask.dll bug fixed

* Support for 32-bit icons REGEDIT AND TASKMGR.EXE (you still need to do the HEX editing by yourself)

* Minor changes in the setup tree...

size: 11.2MB SHA-1: D024A14DCF4AE2C06AA573578FC65BEE93ED367A

DOWNLOAD HERE

:hello:

ps: I didn't bother adding notes to CHANGELIST.TXT XD

Hell Racer, can you re-upload your lite version of XPize? I'm rather late to the party and the links have all expired. >.<
