VistaXT Version 2.0, Release 2 by skate3214 VistaXT Version 2.0, Release 2 by skate3214
Well here it FINALLY is, after months with no release I bring you VistaXT V2 Release 2.

This if for the english version of vista, if you want me to fix
anything for your language please send me a screenshot about the problem and I will make a seperate VistaXT.msstyles for you. :D

This HASN'T BEEN TESTED ON VISTA 64 BIT, so tell me of any problems

This pretty much should call for a new version number, but I already did the graphics and read me for release 2 so thats what it's called :D. Think of it as 3.0 though.

Whats new in this version you might ask:

-Updated start menu.
-New right hand column
-New picture frame
-New “All Programs” button
-Fixed border on start menu
-New window look, Smooth.
-Taskbar now has buttons, instead of the Glows.
-Less reflective taskbar
-Completely redesigned login screen
-New Background
-New picture frames
-New buttons
-WinVer graphic updated
-New Navigation buttons in explorer
-New progress bar graphics
-Fixed window borders rough edges
-Personalise sidebar: colour and graphic changed
-New bootscreen
-New Pushbuttons
-New check boxes
-New round check boxes
-New close, minimise and maximize buttons
-Updated Basic theme to match the new look
-Includes VistaXT wallpapers
-MAJOR BUG FIXES, where office goes into a weird theme
when using this theme. It's all good now though :P

Well there you have it, hope you like it and be sure to tell me of any bugs that you may encounter :)

I absolutely LOVE this theme! Except the disappearing close, maximize, and minimize buttons... Everything looks perfect, except for that... and because of that, I can't use the theme. After five minutes of using it, I got so pissed off at them I had to change vista back to the original theme. Also, the close button and maximize button have uneven spacing. Thanks for making the cool theme though!

How come the background for "All Programs" in the start menu cuts off at the "m" , ive only applied the visual style.

Ahh yeah that occurs when using large icons, use small icons for a temporary fix. It's been a while since I released a new version but I want it to be pretty much complete so it'll be a while but it will fix this problem :D

But other then that it's a very good theme. :)

When you have big icons enabled in the Start menu the "All Programs" text is shifted to the right (like it has a big icon in front of it).

Other then that it's a great theme! :)

I'd like to see more work done on the upper-right-hand side of the Start menu. Other than that, this is a spectacular style. :)

In the new start menu look, you put a new beautiful image for All Programs, but in my system (italian) "All programs" is "Tutti i programmi", more long than english and for this appear "Tutti i progr".....
It's possible for you change to more space ??

Thank for your work

It's really nice, but buggy with a german version of vista. In startmenu the button for All Programs is to short.

Can you please change it? I love this skin.
