Vista Xp Aero

Vista Xp Aero

Here's another tribute to a similar looking theme for XP

Works only with Windows Vista.

I can't provide a link to the Xp version but with enough searching (cough, cough, google) I'm sure you can find it.

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.)

It's a vista wallpaper. You should be able to find it in your windows wallpapers.
why when i apply the theme says "have not been able to apply visual styles" my vista is in spanish cuz iam from mexico traducing to spanish says "No se han podido aplicar los estilos visuales" if u can help me please?

What are you using to apply the theme?
Spanish: Que estas usando para aplicar el estilo visual?
hm i go to the propieties of my desktop and click on the themes i click on ur theme and apply and says that, i alredy patch my uxtheme.dll

Hmm, so you have it patched already? If you have tuneup utilites you should be able to apply with no problems. Are you running x64 bit or x32 bit? Vista?

I can't find the originality in this...
nopd11's avatar
It's more of a port than an original.

So its a port of a port, of a vista theme for xp...for vista :/

I think you're confused. It was originally a visual style made for windows Xp prior to Vista's release.
I really like this theme for Xp and couldn't find a Vista version so I decided to convert it. Make sense?
firekitsuna's avatar
I wasn't confused.

Ok good, glad it all works out. ;)
nopd11's avatar
Ok sounds cool thanks for the tip.
*borat accent* "How do you make this magical topshell?"
nopd11's avatar
Nope, never really considered it. It's kinda awkward for me to have shell on top. Do you think that would be appropriate to include?
dafmat71's avatar
no, cause poeple who put your style can find a topshell on DA!! But in the past i not really like a topshell, but now yes!! It's better to see information and more estetic!!
dafmat71's avatar
did you tried with a topshell?
