You know, I've often tried to replace this to freshen up my laptop.

I can't do it. You've actually created the best Windows 7 VS on the internet. Congratulations.

I'm using the theme with firefox glass and this happens
Only half the screen is transparent, could this be a problem with detecting the window border? (disabling shadow allows the full window to be transparent)

Great theme thought, love the look

Can I use this with Win8 ? :D
I mean how to patch with the "Universal Theme Patcher" ?
It doesn't work with Win8, should I run it in compatibility mode or it will crash something else ? :D
Did they make a special one for Win8 ?
Thanks In advance ^__^

Something is wrong with directories. I had the same problem as LothairMantelar had. Sorry to say that but I'm not using this skin anymore ;'( Annoying bug...

Awesome theme, thanks a lot! Just one question, though: is it possible to change the color of taskbar window previews when you hover over them- the teal color?

You must take ownership of this file. Uncle Google knows how to do that.
