VistaXT Release 2 by skate3214 VistaXT Release 2 by skate3214
This is the second version of my dark/purpley theme for Windows Vista called VistaXT

In this version there has been a lot of changes:

-Finally a Vista Basic skin is included

-Almost every resource like overlays on buttons, task bar buttons everything has been re-coloured purple. Pretty much anything that was blue is now purple

-New Start Button again

-New start Panel

-Double height start button now included instead of the stock vista one

-New login branding of "Windows VistaXT"

-Clear glass on the windows now

-"Winver" (Click run the type winver) branding of VistaXT

-New darker close minimize and maximize icons on the buttons

-Clear glass windows border, not foggy anymore

-New logon buttons

-Everything that was included before, and most of it has been redone

-And heaps of small little changes I can't remember at the time of writing this
Hope you enjoy it!

The problem is that is in the explorer-you must stop them in your taskmanager.
One way: Boot your system with a linux live,rename your explorer in explorer.bak and (perhaps you must make a backup than you have them for that)copy than the new one in your Windows folder

This is pretty good. Just one suggestion and I'd love it. Make the start menu a bit darker. It's too clear just now.

Hmm. Am using Vista and can't get the theme to apply.. I patched my files by using Vista Glazz.
Now to my knowledge that should of enabled me to use themes? Last time I manually patched my files, I had to reformat as they were missing some how. I'd hate that to happen again.

Try using the uxtheme patch in the included files, but remember to back up your old uxtheme.dll. Call it something like [link] and place it in the root of your C: drive, and if the patch messes up just replace the one in C:WINDOWSSystem32 with the one you backed up.

In the above where for some reason turned something into a link It says "Call it something like "uxtheme.dll.bak" without the quotes.

I applied just the skin, so I don't have the diagonal start button...I have the black/purple/white glow round one. Just one more compliment, and I'll stop blathering on. I've seen a lot of Vista start button re-doos, but yours makes all of the rest look absolutely sick. It's masterful. Okay...over and out.

Oh wait did you mean the progress bar or the animation at the top? Because I didn't change the animation because I couldn't find the resource

Sorry I wasn't more clear. OK...Suppose you copy an object from one drive to another (or delete something for that matter). You'll get a dialog box that says "Calculating Time Remaining" at the top, while directly underneath, there is a green strip about .5" wide when viewed at 1280x1024, that says "Copying 1 Item" It is that latter part that I find so maddening. Everytime I find a beautiful visual style such as yours, I am abruptly brought back to earth when I see this hideous POS which no visual style seems to be able to mask. I see you have purple progress bars though; that's a nice touch.

Does this replace that damned green stripe on the copy and move dialog box? I'm so sick of it, and so far, no Visual Styles seem to get rid of it. Thanks.

Are you talking about the icons in the documents folder, because if you are there not included with the skin there just some of the icons I'm making for an icon pack I'm releasing soon. Sorry but they'll be out soon!

By the way, how do you apply the icons? Since my icons aren't changed after a restart after applying all the .dll's.

This is due to the different language versions of Vista: [link]

Damn, this skin is sweet, really cool. Is it possible to run it in XP?
(without the glass effects of course).

Or could you maybe to a Xp mod of it?

Very clean and not too over cluttered.
Well done.

for sure! just one thing, the clear taskbar has brought a few glitches:

-there's something funky about the border, it varies depending the wallpaper used. some parts are light, others are dark.
-the "show inactive icons" button looks bad on a clear bright wallpaper.
-the clear taskbar took away most of the cool "darkness" about it. :)

but overall, it's the best vista theme I've seen so far. keep it up.
