Can we get this ported to Windows 7? There are a lot of so-so Styles out for Se7en, but all the good Aero Styles are for Vista - which is to say, this is a good VS, and I want it!

A wonderfully done style for Vista and its working flawlessly for me too.

love the skin but how do i use the explorer?

Thanks a lot! You have to back up your old explorer.exe in windows folder. To do this you must take ownership. (More info here>[link]) Then rename explorer.exe to explorer2.exe, then just drag and drop the other explorer into that folder, end explorer.exe in taskmanager, open file tab right above the taskmanager icon and "start new task" (run), type explorer.exe in the box and press enter. This will reset explorer and re-open it with the new features. Just thought I should mention I have 32bit Vista. If you have x64 send me the explorer.exe and I can fix it for you. Hope that's clear enough, if not send me a note and I can walk you through it.
Cheers! and thanks for downloading! :w00t:

I love what you've donw with it. The only criticism I have is the change you amde to the White start bar, the new white borders break it up too much. Would love to see it back to the standard Lucid² style.

Other than that, frickin' great! :D

Do i need VistaGlazz([link]) to apply this style? Or do i just place the folder inside the resources/themes folder?
nopd11's avatar
You will ned to patch your system files unless you have tuneup utilities or style selector. Hope that helps you.

Remove or lighten shadows and this will become my favorite VS! Nice Job! :D

This theme looks very promising but I'm having some issues with it. First the explorer.exe that is supplied constantly crashes. So I can't use that, I'm guessing it's not for 64-bit Vista? Second the clock is overlapping the rectangle thing next to it a little. Third...I can only use the basic versions and get the aero affect. Besides all that it looks really great! Keep up the good work.
nopd11's avatar
Thank you very much! Will do!
If you would like to send me your explorer.exe (64bit) I would be happy to edit the resources and upload it. Could you provide a screen shot of your issues? That would really help me understand better.
Not sure I know what you mean by using the basic version you obtain the aero effect. :confused:
trag3dy's avatar
Sorry, what I meant was using the version that has the Win7 orb or the User pic turns aero affects off for me. That happens with both the color and white versions, too.

At any rate, the theme is awesome. Not very many nice looking themes with squared corners out there imo.

I would also like to request a thin taskbar version. 24px would be awesome. I'll see about getting you a copy of my explorer. But I'm not sure I would be the best one to get it from because I've made modifications to mine.
trag3dy's avatar
Oh yeah, my shell style appears different than the one in the screen shots, too, is there a reason for that? I much prefer the look of the one in the screen shots to the blue one that I've got now.

Thanks for pointing that out, I was offline for a few days. I've been moving. All done! :dance:
