Would you be willing to give permission for this visual style to be ported to windows 8?
ImaginedTruths Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2011
This is simply beautiful. I'd give a lot if anyone could update this theme for Windows 7.

Ok, so you just simply double click the ".msstyle" file after placing it in the Themes folder - very funny! :stupidme: Can't help wondering if that couldn't have been mentioned more clearly in the comments! Anyway, for you other newbies here's a good link covering most of the question asked here (google doesn't always give you what you're looking for). You can also download the UXTheme MultiPatcher there. :ambulance:


The additionally required "StylerToolbar [theme] by Susumu", which StefanKa refers to I believe is STOMP v1.1 (it's rather unclear as the previous link to "stylefantasist" is dead and I've yet to try it). It can be downloaded here:


And the Styler Toolbar v1.401 for XP can be download here:


I'm using XP SP3 and "half" (if you will) of this theme is working so far (!)

...and yes, I almost forgot - very nice theme! :phew:

Following the comments I've used UXTheme MuliPatcher and placed the two files (compact/normal) in WINDOWS/Resources/Themes but there are no theme-files for them. Hence they don't show up in [...]/Windows and Buttons drop down. How do I proceed?

Using XP SP3.

I love this VS,
but could you please tell me how i can change the color of marked elements ?
changing them through windows doesnt work, and white on white is quite annoying, because i can never tell if a word is marked or not.
thanks !

Get uxtheme.dll patched (Google it) and then go to C:\\Windows\Resources\Themes and drop the theme's folder in there.

ahm, can someone tell me how to install the visual style and where? please... many thanks for those who will reply....
Aasimov Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2007
Aaaand, I made one tiny little error in my tutorial.
You don't copy the Visual Style folder, just the two folders inside it.

x_x I appologize for any inconvenience.
TaiLei Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2010
Um, sorry, know this is an old post but shouldn't the two folders you mentioned above also have two theme-files with them and (".theme") extension? Couse I don't get this otherwise. Just placing the two files from "Visual Style" into ("WINDOWS/Resources/Themes"), after patched with UXTheme mulipatcher, makes no difference - i.e. doesn't show up in properties > appearence tab > windows & buttons! Well, unless I'm missing something here?

Using XP SP3.
jkmsda Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2007
oh thank u so much for the help , i totally appreciate it. i tried it and didn't work for me. does this apply for vista?
Aasimov Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2007
Ah, my instructions were for XP.
So if you're running Vista, I can't really help, seeing as I don't have Vista myself. If I'm not TOTALLY mistaken, Visual Styles like this are made pretty exclusively for XP.

It just so happens there's a Visual Styles for Vista section here on dA!
I have no idea how to install these because, as I said before, I don't own Vista. So you're kinda on your own from here on in.
However, it can't be that complex, and I'm sure there's tutorials out there. There's no reason to need a 3rd party program to install these (like how you really don't need StyleXP for XP Visual Styles) unless Vista is COMPLETELY different from XP.
Whatever happens, do some research into it before trying to install.
Hope I've been of some assistance! ;D
Aasimov Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2007
Actually, with all due respect to spymerinator, you don't have to have StyleXP.

Once you've downloaded the visual style of your choosing, open up the zip and copy the folder out to wherever you want it.
Then take the folder, check inside to ensure it has a .msstyle file; in this case, it's in InspiratSE/Visual Style. You'll see 2 folders, and in each is the two style choices you get with this theme.
Go up a folder from Visual Style, and then copy the Visual Style folder.
Go to My Computer, then hit your main drive, probably (C:).
Go to your Windows folder and once there, find a folder called "Resources". Under Resources, you'll find "Themes".
Paste the Visual Style folder from InspiratSE in there, and rename it from Visual Style to InspiratSE.

Once you've done all that, go to your desktop, right click, and hit properties.
In the Display Properties window, go to the Appearance tab. Under the Windows and Buttons drop down menu, you should find your visual style, if you've done everything correctly.
;D Hope that helps.
spymercinator Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2007
You need a program called StyleXP.
When/if you get it, go to the visual styles tab and click add visual style on the bottom left corner. Then browse to where you dled the .zip file, and open it. Voila, you have the style.
jkmsda Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2007
thank you very much. but does StyleXP works with vista?
spymercinator Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2007
Yes, I think it does.
