Ummm I just did a re-install and I only have one question.

What happened to my start button??

I don't really like my start button almost non-existent.

Which file did this so I can take it out or could you please send me a modified file that doesn't change my start button. PLEASE...

2.1 Final

Integrated into XPCD and then upgrade installed.

P.S. Jcarle's compression bin worked very nicely to cab files.

I highlighted all of the files and dropped them into the bin and after a minute all where done nicely.

EDIT: Just read your edit and did the changes. Thank you very much beautiful pack by the way.

ok, im the "german guy from the other board" lol

2 questions now

what did you change in browselc.dll ?

where do i find xpsp2res.dll ?

i am using a slipstreamed SP2 CD, and the files i will be giving on (or you will be giving on, as far as you are willing to host them) will also be for direct slipstreaming to the CD.


thx in advance, and great work.

thx for the fast reply :) ok i found it in system32, but where would it be on the windows cd ? since i would like to make it "slipstream-able"

edit: or let me ask this question: are the modifications in this file very important to the "windows style pack" ? sorry, but i dont even know what this file is realy for *g* :blushing:

Which file is it that shows when you are downloading, moving or deleting files?? The little animation box is what I am looking for.

@kelsenellenelvian:

Look in shell32.dll (copying, deleting...) and shdocvw.dll (downloading)

The shutdown box is part of msgina.dll. The "Shutdown", "Restart" and "Suspend" buttons are NOT icons. You can find them in BMP 20150.

omg... thank you microsoft for making lokalized version of xpsp2res.dll different...

thanks to layout.inf i learned that xpsp2res.dll isnt called xpsp2res on the german lokalized version of windows. on the CD the file is called sprt0407.dll

quote from layout.inf
sprt0407.dll = 100,,2981888,,,,,2,0,0,xpsp2res.dll,1,2

(on the CD = i386\sprt0407.dl_ , after install %windir%\system32\xpsp2res.dll)

i will now modify this file, and then test everything again in virtual machine.
if everything works i could then send u the files for "further testing" (if u want to ;)) and then u could host them for german ppl :)

i added you to my msn messenger buddy list. talk to you later there, or here in this topic ;)

EDIT: im done, tested in VM (slipstreamed files and installed windows...) and working.

Suggestion:

Replace the bitmaps from explorer.exe (7010 and 7011). They are the logoff and shutdown images when used the classic start menu. The originals are 16 colors!

If you want the high color version of them just send me a pm.

Another thing ... why you don't compress the files using the high compression option:

makecab /D CompressionType=LZX file.xyz

also apply to all the files the "modifype.exe -c file.xyz" to recalculate the crc (this part i'm not sure if it is already done. if yes sorry)

I just had a strange error: The whole Start button just disappeared after applying Royale Theme. I know that the Text 'Start' was removed, but usually the green button itself is still there but now there's just nothing.
I need to press the windows key on my keyboard to open the start menu. Even after going back to Windows Classic Style the start button won't appear again. Using xpize 2.1 on winxp sp2

That's actually pretty cool.

If you figure that out.... let me know.


B)

but I've never had that problem with XPize.


(SP2 here as well)
