This is a Work from Hellas = Greece.
Is dedicated to All people of Earth who support : the Hellenic = Greek History, Philoshophy, Civilization and the Greek people.

********

PLEASE READ THE INSTRUCTIONS OF THE 64 BIT of this page VERY CAREFULLY.
THE SYSTEM FILES OF YOUR SYSWOW64 FOLDER MUST BE REPLACED FROM THE 32 BIT FILES THAT I HAVE INCLUDED TO MY Macos X for Windows 7 - 32bit [link] FROM FOLDER '32 bit Dll files'
So 64bit users must download also my 32bit version of the theme.
THE REST SYSTEM FILES, in C:\Windows\System32 and in C:\Windows MUST REPLACED FROM THE FILES INCLUDED TO THIS PACK FROM FOLDER '64 bit Dll files'.


Mac OS X style system behaviour with not 3rd party program .

Macos X is a Mac OS X port for WIndows 7, made by idas = ZEUS osX. (Pavlos Pitselas).


Macos X for windows 7 is MADE IN GREECE (= Hellas).


Macos (1)word meaning : 'mecos'= length in ancient Athenian also Ionian language and in Byzantine and in nowdays Greek, and 'macos' in doric and aeolian ancient greek dialects and in nowdays tsaconian= spartan dialect that still speaken in some villages in southeastern Pelloponese[south Greece], where is my hometown, and also in Ancient Greek Macedonian and Aeolian Thessalian dialects.
On screenshot , down window there exist some of a portrait of Alexander the Great(=Alexandros) who unified all Hellenes=Greeks ie (Peloponisians , Thessalians , Macedonians, Athenians, Cretans etc ].

IN ancient and in nowdays Hellenic (=Greek) [Active CODE] language, every letter, and every word is a specific number, and it has a specific meaning.
ZEUS ( or DEUS or DIAS) is Master of immortal Gods in Hellenic (=Greek) Active CODE [arithmetic machine logic] language, and APPLE is the given gift from ZEUS .

So the name of the THEME choosen from Hellenic = GREEK language and civilization.

-------------------------------

Macos X IS not just a theme. With new code added to Windows system files , Windows becomes behaving like Mac OS X .

When forinstance we select a folder as 'icon', we have separate mouse over image for the folder and other image for the text.

When we select a folder as 'details' we can have stripes, and mouse over images like mac os X , blue hover and white text .

Main categories of visual styles: Transparent, Brushed, Gray.

Names and styles of Themes:
Dion,- 4 versions ---> transparent
Alexander, - 4 --> brushed
Leopard - 4 --> gray

in each style that has number I (FOR EXAMPLE : 24 Dion I ) --> no visible folderband, and no addressbar image, and a designed button at the corner of titlebar.

in each style that has number II (FOR EXAMPLE : 24 Dion II ) --> no visible folderband, BUT with addressbar image,and NO designed button at the corner of titlebar.

in each style that has number III (FOR EXAMPLE : 24 Dion III) --> Visible folderband, and with addressbar image in eand NO designed button at the corner of titlebar.

each style that has number IIII (FOR EXAMPLE : 24 Dion IIII ) --> no visible folderband, and no addressbar image, BUT IT HAS some pseudo buttons in the place of addressbar so to look like MAC Finder, though its only design, without fuctionality as also the designed button at the corner of titlebar.

Also i use The Ave's application [still beta] , CloseButtonChanger which makes the close,max,min buttons more close.

My work is based on the spirit of os X, and not a copy of it.

Many images are designed in a similar but not same way with original os X.

I use font bold style in many places that original os X use regular font style.

I made this project to work only to 96 dpi font size.

For this project i have spent thousands of hours, and perchaps it is first time in the history of Windows, that without any 3rd party programm or explorer replacement, we have a so much close to mac os X style approaching.

The theme will have some limitations in use, as i have not enough time to complete in the way i want, as i am too tired.
--------

MAIN LIMITATIONS AND CONDITIONS OF USING

1. Be sure that in Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Display the Smaller - 100% categorie is checked . if there is not, check Smaller - 100% and restart.
Also do not change font size (leave it 96 dpi font size).

2. do not change border padings.

3. in the new themes there is no any taskbar problem.

4. for close distance between close,min,max buttons Ave's application [still beta] , CloseButtonChanger needed.

5. for adding shadows effect around your Windows, needed the freeware controlable application YzShadow.

MAKING SOME APPLICATION WHICH DOES NOT START WITH THE START OF WINDOWS, ENABLE TO START.

[ATTENTION, DO THIS ONLY IF YOU TRUST THOSE APPLICATION]
FOR leftsider, or Yz Shadow for example

For starting with windows start up , go to control panel/clasic view/folder options then go to view and select show hidden files and folders. then go to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup and add a shortcut of the leftsider or Yz Shadow

then go again go to control panel/clasic view/folder options then go to view and deselect show hidden files and folders.

(do the same for any other application, but only if you trust it, and does not automatically work with the start up of windows) [if you want also to uninstall an application , like leftsider and reinstall a new version of it, you have first go to "C:\Users\[enter your username here]\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\" and delete the folder called "leftsider" = delete the folder with the name of the application , in this case current "leftsider".]

------------------------------------------------------------

How to stop the music playing when you enter the Login Screen of window :

BelleHades00's avatar
You know, I would LOVE to see something like this, but based off of Mac OS X Jaguar, with small scanlines or whatever you call them in the titlebars, and the buttons with shadows beneath them, and all the blue places could be changed to a bluish greenish color, made by somebody else.

hi Zeus, looks great! very nice work on this!
i've got a problem tough: i can't replace the .dll and explorer.exe files from your folder to my windows, system32 and syswow64 folders... windows keeps telling me that the folder is being used already by another programm and i should close that programm. i've taken the ownership of all the files. UAC has been disabled a long time ago so that shouldn't be a problem

happy to hear from you, thanks!
ZEUSosX's avatar
i donr know if your anti virus , block the procedure. make a scan, see that indeed my files are clean, then close firewall and antivirus, restart, make all changes following my instructions, then restart, the re enable firewall and antivirus.

When I copy the ExplorerFrame.dll, imageres.dll and the other two they won't show up in the folder.. But I have optained the permissions and also changed the names to XX.old.dll
And I used the 64bis files and tried to copy them into system32.. why doesn't it work? :(
lilly-gerbil's avatar
So after I couldn't copy them still into where they belong, I restarted the PC. BAD IDEA!!!
Now everything is gone, ALL! Because the system couldn't find XX.dll. A person I know installed me new windows 7 here but still I am missing my whole data, mostly my picuters.
I mean it's not your fault, but MAYBE you should write somewhere in the discription that people who don't know that much about that shouldn't restart it..

everything is gone
ZEUSosX's avatar
propably because you did not set the  UAC button to the bottom:

before replacing files go to Control pane [view by category] -->so Go to Control Panel\User Accounts and Family Safety\User Accounts and press the folder 'Change User Account Control Settings' set the slider to the next window Never Notify. restart. do all your changes in code that u want. then again go to Control Panel\User Accounts and Family Safety\User Accounts and press the folder 'Change User Account Control Settings' set the slider to the next window to Default or to whatever u like, then restart

if this is not done, then even if you make copy/paste of the new files to system32 , those in action do not copying and the system is 'gone'.> its not the restART the problem> restart much be done according the instructions refer.> its the UAC that usually make the problem. just follow the instructions as is.

Hello there!
I really like your theme but I have just one problem. When I replace my explorer.exe and reboot the computer, after logging in I get this message that explorer.exe couldn`t start as "Class is not registered". Do you have some kind of a fix for it?
ZEUSosX's avatar
no, if you have an sp1 version go to my zeusosx.deviantart.com/art/Eos… and download my sp1 files from there.

if the problem is just explorer.exe  insist to your system , then do not use itthe specific file.
