Version 2.5 has an installer with updater so i want to use it, it can also be uninstalled if required, the older manual way you can't... but thanks for the reply anyway

yo xp addict :P, any idea when a new version is coming out?

I have almost finished XPize 3 (codenamed: Best viewed with Royale) :P I'm just finishing the AVIs...I'm having transparency problems with "classic" style, but it will be fixed. Also I have to design some wallpapers and fix some minor bugs. I will try to include some extras if I can: TaskswitchXP, a WinRAR mod (finished), Royale Logon, Adobe Gamma (finished), a Royale VS mod...

After all that, I have to give all the files to flyakite, so he can start working on the installer. And the more important thing...I have to finish all my university exams (end of february) :puke: So...the release will take a month or so.

EDIT: Metal and Gothik! I think we should talk :P

hallo again

i just have some important questions

can you send me the source files for all the stuff, becouse i need to finish an internal project for my work - and i do not know if everything is working if i integrate the xpize install version in my i386 folder - it has a lot of updates and fixes so i don't want to loose it - it will run on our company's ris in nearly 2 weeks or so - if i get the script files ready

so i have to implement other logons and logos in shell32 and msgina and so on so source files will be very helpful (i got some CI in the total modded version - i asked all amployees and they said, that a special version for our company on base of xpize is cool because of most new logos - but i must insert some logon and background screens and branding features)

cabbed files ar also ok, if you do that - if this is done by installer i will compile everything myself *gg*

pm me if you have some time

thanks

Sorry to spoil the party but I installed XPize on my Windows XP PS2 French version and it screwed up Internet Explorer and Wordpad as well!

I am now using a backup of Internet Explorer I found in C:\WINDOWS\system32\dllcache\iexplore.exe

Even if I uninstalled your program, I didn't came back... :thumbdown

You mean XPize 2.5? I haven't the files right now, I'm not in my PC. You can ask bombtrack or Injecter, maybe they have it.

If you are talking about 3.0, my answer is NO. It is finished, but I'm not planning releasing it as the "classic packs". The installer is being developed and it will include (if nothing bad happens) an option to patch a i386 directory, which is very useful for what you are planning to do.

mmm...I've never heard about it and never happened to me and XPize users I know. Anyway, thanks for reporting, I will look closely to this in the first beta of 3.0

Some useful info: The backup of the original files is in C:\WINDOWS\XPize (hidden by default).

I don't know if this could be related but my %ProgramFiles% is located on the D: drive, not on C:

Maybe, I will take all that into account for 3.0. Sorry for the inconveniences, but that's the world of shell packs :P

EDIT: is all other XPize stuff working ok?

Well I can test until I will reinstall my Windows. Not that it is outdated but I have to move some partition because of that stupid HL2 installer

Have you noticed you cannot change the Destination drive when installing Half-Life2? It wants to go into %ProgramFiles% and you cannot change that. C R A P **** Valve + Vivendi

OK I will send you a PM when first beta is available. It will take some weeks.

Oh, crappy HL2 installer :P

no i meant the brand new "royale looking" files of xpize 3.0

i had read that nearly everything is together and that it will get an installer to integrate in an i386 dir of a cd or dvd or ris share

so i plan to use this version at my work but i have to integrate som CI (corporate identity also)

so i have everything together based on xpize 2.5

i request the xpize 3.0 sources so i do not need to use the installer - because if i use the installer, all ci changes i did to SHELL32, explorer, iexplore, MSGINA ... are gone

if i install on running system i will have to rip the sources myself from running config

bit i am sure that you tested (or still test) all xpize 3.0 content on an system where you can send me the sourcefiles

therefor there are two ways

1. you send me all bitmap files and avi and ico .... in folders named like the files where i have to integrate them - so i can insert my CI before inserting all into the new files and compressing them to *.**_

2. you could also send me the running files (shell32.dll) of your english or spanish or whatever test system so i will transfer everything myself to my files

now to the reason:

i have a project running and for all the ris templates, scripts ... i have only nearly two weeks left - and you wrote in some posts before that you finished everything except some avi files and send it to the person who creates the installer - but if installer is ready it will take a month or so - that is a bit to long i think - so it would be nice if i can get the sources or compiled files so i can integrate everything myself this weekend or one of the next two ones

so what is the metter with the new xpize exactly and is it possible to get something like that ?!?

thanks

flyakite is working on the installer.

it'l be released probably when xpero comes back from university.

or maybe a little while later, bacause the site can't be done good enough without xpero's help
