WMP11 Vista Basic v2

Windows Media Player 11 Vista Basic v2 (resource)

For Windows XP only!

Enhanced version of the vista basic skin for WMP11. Items fixed:
*New seek png (original from vista)
*Rectangle edges added lke in vista
*Moved title bar controls and the wmp logo. (not a perfect match to vista's but closest possible)
*Minor pixels and lines fixed to match the vista's wmp
*Added light (inactive window like) version with working color choser(!). (The main version has color choser also, but it colors a part of the border too, impossible to fix.)

Known bugs which are (almost) impossible to fix:

Media Player frame size - in Vista the wmp 11 is few pixels bigger (fater frames).
Text - titlebar and bottom bar text is white. I couldn't find any codes which control the font colors, (probably dependent from color choser)
Fullscreen - in vista the fullscreen bottom control background is transparent.

Nevertheless, it's close as possible to Vista's wmp11

This skin is for the latest version of windows media player 11. (11.0.5721.5145)

Instructions inside.

Credit also goes to pierdelp [link] , since he made the wmp11 basic skin for WMP11 Final (Inspired from my early beta style for WMP11 Beta2)

Any help with the wmp11 font colors would be greately appreciated.
