Well guys, for the people that missed the old Windows 98 Plus! themes, I got these from my old Windows 98 and tried it on Windows 7. Extremely surpising that it worked. Extract the .zip folder and I've learned that you must keep the Plus! folder on the desktop for it to run properly. Otherwise, runs perfectly. Curently running the Nature theme :)

It works perfectly on Windows 2000, my brother used it, but on Windows 7 it doesn't change the icons or wallpaper. You have to do it manually.

Aside from not changing the icons or wallpaper (which will be no problem since i can do it manually), it does everything else correctly?

Sucks it all works but the icons and wallpapers. You gotta do that part manually if you really wanna.

It did work, but no longer worked later. I think windows update patched it. It just always crashes now.

I'm using Windows 7 64 bit and tried to apply the Windows Classic theme. But all it seemed to do was change my desktop wallpaper. The windows, taskbar, icons, ect all remain unchanged. And the wallpaper eventually cycles back to normal after a few minutes. Not sure what went wrong.

Excellent. Thank you.

Well it doesn't work well in Win7 Pro 64-bit Spanish, updated patches: wallpapers won't be set, and in themes it clearly shows a black screen and when I apply the theme the black screen will be the desktop background, fonts won't be applied, cursors and sounds and font sizes will be applied, any suggestions?

I ran the themes.exe from a non-desktop location, them I copied the Plus! folder to the desktop and nothing changed, some things are missing somehow, but thanks anyway, I'll update this post if I find something on The Net.

Will this work for windows vista?

Also, can this make it look like the Jungle theme for the toolbar? (the start button & things)
