NOTE: THE SOFTWARES IN THIS PACK ARE NOT MADE BY ME. I HAVE ONLY PUT THEM TOGETHER IN THIS PACK.


Hey friends!! This is my first pack for XP which will transform its looks and interface somewhat similar to that of Vista Home Premium Edition.

This pack contains:

1. Firefox Vista skin
2. LClock (Vista style)
3. Styler Toolbar (setup) with Vista theme
4. True Transparency for transparent titlebars
5. ViOrb (Blue and Green) for Vista style Start menu orb
6. Vista Cursors
7. Vista Drives (setup)
8. Vista Home Edition Visual Style
9. Vista Icon Packager Theme
10. Vista Sounds
11. Vista System Properties
12. ViStart for Vista style Start menu with working search
13. Windows Sidebar (setup)+(Min Add-ons)
14. Y'Z Toolbar (setup) with VistaXP theme

THE SPECIALITY OF THIS PACK IS THAT IT CONSUMES THE LEAST SYSTEM MEMORY (RAM) AND DOES NOT MAKE THE SYSTEM SLOW.

Tested on:
- P4 1.7 GHz
- Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 2
- 256MB SD RAM
- Onboard S3 Graphics ProSavageDDR (32MB shared)

Despite of the above configuration (good for nothing), my system performance was optimum.

True Transparency is a software that makes the titlebar transparent...consuming the least resources.

I didn't get time to make a help file for installing each component separately but they all are simple to use and easily removable when not needed. They don't hamper the XP System files at all.

And I haven't included Vista wallpapers because they were increasing the size of the pack to 30MB+.

Credits To: Pgase, Ductien and Lee for making the above softwares.

For any querries regarding the installation, please scrap below!!

Hope you all like this...!!

True Transparency is no good. I mean, it looks like it should, but there is something wrong with it. when you move the window, it lags and when you go from maximise to minimize, it looks all weird. I'm sorry I can't explain it that well, but there is something wrong with it.

Great job putting this together! I preferred Vista Rainbar for my sidebar app when I had XP, but its for more advanced users like myself.

copy all the sound files in the windows/media folder folder. then open sound option from control panel, select windows sound scheme and then edit each windows sound from the menu. after all the sound files have been edited (changed), save it as a new vista sound scheme and enable it...done

I used a few of your sounds and cursors. Check my gallery. I have posted a pic of my new OS, which contains parts from your design, as well as others, to achieve the perfect shell.
