UPDATE // 04.02.2011:
/ Fixed some minor bugs
/ Thanks to ~martin10018 now with a basic.theme file

The package includes two Visual Styles for Windows 7
and custom images to change the explorerframe.dll

Basic Support is enabled. Now with a custom basic.theme file.


For installation instructions read this: [link]

To change the explorerframe I suggest you to use this wonderful tool: [link]

The start button is made by =kiko11 and you can find it here: [link]

Excellent theme. However, can you make the radio buttons into black? Light gray one white is very hard to distinguish. Hoping for your reply.

I have no idea what I have done wrong, but the theme is not working whatsoever. 
Thanks for including basic support. Great looking theme!

Hey there, how's it going? So nice to hear from you!
I really wanted to get started with the Windows 8 stuff...
The i decided to wait for windows 8.1 to come out, but i just didn't manage to even install it.
For now i really need a working and well functioning computer for university and it takes so much time 
to get things sorted out and everything properly running. 
I miss customizing a lot, but i don't know when i'll be able to start again.

Does this work on windows 8?
This is allmost damn hear perfect. have been looking for a good dark theme for ages that also works when aero is disabled (when i use my streaming software).

I'd like to request just one thing. could you make a variant that deplaces the orange with a different color? like a green akin to Android 2.3.x or a blue like in android 4.x?
