Hey found this ThemeSwitcher off WinAero and it works pretty good, supports switching your themes via command line as well.. DPPosted Image

Here is screenshot of vista theme with authentic desktop icons for User files and Network, I made a vista.dll file with all vista icons, You can use it with any of the Vista themes on here to complete the vista desktop experience, if anyone is interested let me know and I can post the file with instructions on here..DP

There is a TON of gorgeous work shown in this thread, but this is my favorite (so far)! :thumbup (For the reason, just check what I have as my OS over on the left...) It seems to complete the beautiful theme xXiNightXx created.

Please do post the file and instructions. Maybe you can list everything that the image that we see above involves in terms of OS tweaks?

Also, would this theme work on a Windows 7 machine?

Thanks very much.

Because of all the requests, I am updating my VistaSe7en Aero Theme which includes a lot of bonus software and easy installer, should have something by end of the week or first part of next week, In meantime xXiNightXx has a great Aero theme and Vista theme posted on here with the rounded corners similar to my screen shot, then you can just update the desktop icons etc. DP

It would have to be Windows 7, the explorer windows don't look like that in Windows 8, the part behind the address bar and navigation buttons can not be aero glass and also there is no up arrow next to the nav buttons.

Nice Looking Theme!!

Only thing is your installer is showing 3 Trojan virus hits with VirusTotal,  probably false-positive because of a cracked version of winrar and sfx.. DP

Strange, my copy of winrar is legit. I just updated to the latest version of it, should not be popping up any issues. Its most likely the command that it uses at the end to open the personalization window. "control.exe desktop"

Is that on Windows 8?

If so, how did you get the transparent address bar, etc?

an_old_version_of_windows_8_by_supershad

 

 

 

I'd like to know if there's any way possible to port this theme of this old version of Windows 8, including the non-flat Ribbon UI, and port it to the final of 8 and 8.1. 

 

This is the Consumer Preview  Winver 6.2 Build 8250.

Non flat is no problem. Just replace the uiribbon.dll and the corresponding mui files with the ones from the Consumer Preview. Done that some time ago.

Can you tell me the files of the ones to get from Consumer Preview other than the UIRibbon file and the corresponding mui ones from the en-US folder, just to make sure I'm getting the right ones? If you can, that'd be great. I've always remembered the Non-Flat Ribbon that use to be in Consumer Preview. I thought to myself, Why couldn't Microsoft leave that alone?

You need 3 files, UIRibbon.dll, UIRibbonRes.dll and UIRibbon.dll.mui, just tried it and it worked.

I believe you have to use the Security Tab on the properties of the 3 files
