AeroWorks FREE is now released.
There will be three versions, FREE, Basic, and Ultimate.

This version of AeroWorks, the Free edition will only Skin/Texturize the Taskbar. You can load from the included skins, and make changes, but you can not save to a skin folder. The app will remember what changes you have made.

This app works only under Vista and Windows 7.


Sorry, XP users. you can still download and use Texturized Taskbar but it wont be updated or supported.


Prices are not final, but Basic should run between $3-$5 USD, and Ultimate will be $10 USD

Credit goes to PCModer and CommonSense for helping me out and being my testers.

just delete the folder that you unzipped it to. thats if there was not an installer. if it did have an installer, see Control Panel > Add / Remove Application"

All it does is put an image over the top of your taskbar. Pretty useless if you ask me, no offence intended.

actually it puts the image under the task bar.
GenuineMuffins's avatar
Maybe so, put i noticed that it does reduce the clarity of everything on the taskbar, which some might find irritating (me).

This is... a VB6 app that puts a click-through window with a png as background?

I have Win7 PROx64. I get the "C\Windows\system32\stdole2.tlb // Unable to register the type library : Register TypeLib Failed" error unles I run in compatibility for Vista. While it does change the TASKBAR part of Aero, it doesn't affect windows and window borders.

itis not supposed to affect the borders yet, just the task bar. that is why it is free, it has none of the advanced features.
however, the window skinning has been dropped, due to xp/vista/7 compatability.

sorry if it was misleading.

where can i find more skins?

you can choose more through the Base and FX layers, ones that you have made. when Basic edition comes out, it will be a small Pay software, it will have more skins and the ability to zip up skins or internet, and to import them in from the internet / downloaded file for you to install and use.

and how do i make a skin
SuprVillain's avatar

tiy can look at the files in the folders in the skins folder. it is simply as easy as making a solid background, normally 1024 width x 30 height. then use the same measurements for a FX overlay (png only).

then use the buttons in the app (base skin = the first image you did, FX is the png that you did.)

the app will auto apply them. you cant "save" them to the skins folder, but as long as you dont change the skin, your will show up and be the last one used.



When you upgrade to the Basic edition, you CAN save them for later use, but that will be a pay app, probally all of $3-$5.
