NT4 Visual Update 3 Release Candidate 1

133 posts in this topic

awergh great job :thumbup

Would it be possible to have some "minimalistic" version of your VU?

Ie just all the xp icons?

(or just the icons + patched explorer for n00bs)

I like your work, but to be honest Im not fan of vista's stuff, sorry :blushing:

NT4 Visual Update 1.01 3.72 MB

http://www.divshare.com/download/1450117-1da

This version isnt as nice as NT4VU2 but it still works and includes the XP icons you wanted rather than the Vista ones. It is almost the same as NT4VU 1.00 but a couple of bugs are fixed but i didnt test it further.

You could always run NT4 in a VM, afterall it has a really small footprint

oh i forgot to mention about the installer, yes im still using batch files but ive made it simpler you just need to run installer.exe and follow the buttons and stuff then you get your desired options and stuff and it will run the appropriate batch files without looking for them and stuff, however the uninstall batch files you need to run yourself

The Future of NT4VU

Well im thinking im going to make NT4VU2.1 which will have support for the shell update.

for NT4VU3 i have ideas but i really need to know what people think about it what they want the possible things that i could do, because there is only so much testing and thinking soft of stuff i can do by myself or almost by myself.

The only thing that I noticed was the great looking installer, then you click install and the commmand console opens and it's less streamlined.

It's not a big deal, but that's really all I can think of.
