.:Clear Vision:.

Wanted to make a more aero looking Visual style to match Vision, so here's the final product.

Works only with Windows Vista!

New improvements:

-New taskbar
-New shell style
-Transparency working with maximized windows (check preview)
-Aero enabled start menu

To enable this theme you must use Tuneup utilities that supports visual styles (worked great for me),
or patch your uxtheme files using vista glazz by codegazer (didn't work for me).


I recommend using Style selector simply because it works, and because you don't have to patch any system files or any files for that matter.

(Style Selector is a free 200 Kilobyte portable application that runs on 32-bit editions of Windows Vista.)


More info and download via ghacks:

Hope you all enjoy it, any questions or comments welcome.

Cheers!

Update:

Fixed shellstlye contrast issues and replaced the stream with a more suitable one.

Never mind it worked after another reboot. Weird.

I am unable to apply this theme or the original Vision theme any longer after running Windows Update today. Something in the latest batch of Microsoft patches must have broken it (I would be inclined to think the optional/recommended cumulative update for Media Center).
Wallpaper link, please.

Pretty nice theme. The stream is a bit short and stops about 1/3 the way from the top of my screen. Not a huge deal, though I like the blurry effect rather than a clear look for the top 1/3 of the screen.

Yeah I see what you mean, thanks for pointing that out, I was able to fix that so now it looks much better! Thanks friend!

Wonderful! I'm using it now, though I'm also using the taskbar resize tool to make minimized windows fit a larger (win7 sized) taskbar. If you could make this theme based on one of the many win7 themes with the superbar sized taskbar, that would be awesome! Thanks for a cool theme! ;)

No prob...I could remake it for you in about an hour. ;)
Strangely, I am unable to apply this theme although others work fine :(

Sorry friend, are you using Tuneup?
no, i can if it works with tuneup

Ok, well I added some updates to make CV allowing it to work with style selector; I also added style selector to the pack. Just re-download to get all these updates. Should work, if not PM me.
Cheers!
Strangely, it forces the skin in Basic mode even after unchecking that option, has it got something to do with the fact that the dll files were patched.

Hmm could be, can you run other aero themes without any problems?
yes, no worries, i will figure something out, thank you for your assistance,
Thanks Chris.. Much Appriciaso.. PEACE
