Vista Port of Muin VS

-Visual Style (32 or 64bit)

Updated June 3, '09:
-Thinner window borders
-New start menu shutdown (thanks to =jg-visuals for the find)
-Went back to the more XP style
-Changed fonts to Avant Garde
-And more (honestly, I can't remember)

Not designed for use with details pane (bottom shell). Turn off by opening an explorer window, select Organize in the upper left, from the drop down list select Layout, then click on Details Pane.

Special thanks to Lassekongo83 for his generosity.
If you like, also give a fave to the original.

HELP: If the Start Button does not display correctly when you first apply the style, log off, then log back on. Also, make sure you use 96dpi.

Fantastic work, been using this theme for a long time now. I only wish it had that start menu search function, it's pretty handy.

Love the theme, it's a good minimalistic, black theme with some nice shape in the gloss effect. I was hoping to find a port to Windows 7 though.

Can you make a version with a regular font size. Thanks.

Wow, great stuff. Thanks for your awesome work and keep it coming!

OT: Does anybody know if it works on Windows 7, too? If so... how?

This theme simply rocks. It's my favorite one so far.

Is there any way I can get the same toolbar as yours? I mean the arrows/organize/views icons etc.

I read your comment on that and I got the Auriel browserui to work, but I like this one better. :)

Thank you for sharing!

In my gallery I have the Tango browseui.dll like the one in the screenshot

This is a great theme! I love this theme. Is there anyway to make it display in Aero without the weird looking oversized buttons?

It seems to dislike displaying properly in my Start menu as well - any ways to fix this?
sweatyfish's avatar
No, the way the captions are set only allow for use in Basic mode. I've tried to work around, but Aero's buttons are unforgiving :)

Can you please update this for Vista SP2? I am unbelievably pissed that it doesn't work with the new SP.
ejiang9's avatar
Ok nevermind...I uninstalled the new SP and it STILL wouldn't work. It was working great before I installed the SP2. Do you know what could be the problem? the theme just shows up as Windows Standard theme.

@sweatyfish Can you please not remove your old uploads when you post a new version. If deviantart doesn't have this provision, could you post it some place else for download. Thanks!

The reason why I ask is:
I am looking at this post [link] from your April port and like the font and the fact that there is no line between the Address bar and Quick access menu (Organize, Views, System Properties etc). I don't seem to find a way to download that anymore.

BTW, how did you apply the Tango icon set? I used Tango Patcher from ~vertigosity, but it didn't make it look like what you have. Any help is much appreciated.

Did I say, your themes are simple and mellifluous :)
sweatyfish's avatar
I didn't apply the Tango patcher. I edited some system files and used my Tango iconpackage.
