:: Lumen VS ::

Lumen VS
Aero Only

-Visual Style (32 or 64bit)
-Browseui.dll and Shell32.dll (32bit SP1 Only)

Get 64bit files here.

May be too little too late, but here it is. I used this as a base to make up for lost time.

Because the borders are/almost a pure white, be careful on choosing a wallpaper. The taskbar and borders get "washed out" real easy on bright wallpapers. I suggest a dark one or at least one that has consistent color without bright spots. The taskbar only looks right when used on the bottom, where a Windows taskbar belongs. Browseui.dll does not display correctly on Basic mode. I may update to show the search on start menu. Finally, the shellstyle is designed for the top shell mod (included shell32.dll). If you don't use top shell, modify the shell/find another/turn off by Organize -> Layout -> Details Pane.

I may modify later to show the search on the start menu.

You are free to distribute if you modify. But link back to the original. Also, your modification must be shared under the same terms and license.

Will it work on Windows 7?

This was by far the most beautiful VS I had ever used when I was on Vista, and the only thing I don't like about Windows 7 is that I'm unable to use this VS on it. Please, for the sake of a truly beautiful user experience, will you port this to Windows 7, or even update it to Windows 8? Something this simplistic and minimalistic should be used by Microsoft themselves.

Did you use Aves Style Builder? Cuz i tried open up the .msstyle in Restorator and in the Version folder it said: Product Name: AveStyle DLL

CooL! I got Windows 7... but I want Vista back! Themes for Vista are more beautiful (even default)! This one is not an exception - it is beautiful! Who will make the same for Windows 7?
Wow, great theme. Thanks a bunch!

Very nice style, but i can't get the search bar on the start menu to show up when clicking the start button. Did I not install it properly or is it a bug?

This is a nice Visual Stryle, it blaneds the bright colours with the darker colours very well. Overall it looks awesome, worth the download in my opinion. The white also helps break up the constant dark desktop themes we see here on Deviant Art. It looks amazing even without using the Browseui.dll.

I loved this when I was on Vista, but you've gotta update this thing to 7. x.x ...x64, too. ^^;

Love it - how do I get the explorer icons to look correctly? Since I have Vista SP2 I can't use the supplied browseui.dll. Am I out of luck :)?
TropicalTuna's avatar
Forget my previous comment - browseui.dll works like a charm. Great VS! :+fav:
