WIN ZEUS os X II for vista



WIN ZEUS os X (II)THEME for Windows Vista (32bit version)

Thank You for Downloading WIN ZEUS os X UPDATING2 FOR THE 32 BIT vista VERSION , WHICH IS PART OF Win ZEUS os X THEME.

Win ZEUS os X is a Mac OSX port for WIndows (VISTA), made by IDAS = ZEUS osX.



I redesigned some elements and colors to forms that follow and continue the Aqua version of os X , giving my personal touch and feeling.

NEW WALLPAPER AQUA HYDRO modified by me, for my Win ZEUS os X theme NEW UPDATING (2) , also new buttons (1 CIRCLE old AND 2 NEW SQUARE TYPE FINDER STYLE BUTTONS = browseui.dll) and elements (NEW COLORS ON LISTVIEWHEADER, NEW COLORS ON HELP AND SUPPORT, etc) .

All the project of the theme from November 2006 (1 year before) had inmind to give the continuity (not a copy) of the fantastic brushed surfaces of os X + beautifull aqua style colors (a style which has soul,a style that can make you Feel it), modified by me, giving my personal view for os X (looking) for the
world of Windows (Vista),
a combination of crystal glass (aero) and brushed surfaces, ofcource under the limitations of the Windows os and my little knowledge also.

Please see video : [link]

Win ZEUS os X designing rules, follow the principles of abstractiveness and simplicity, under Zeus inspiration.
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.
His Main weapon is lightning and lightnes. He could transformate his alive code MATERIAL BEING to whatever He likes.
APPLE is the given gift from ZEUS, in this Hellenic (=Greek) tradition.(so the using of apple logo i choose)
SO , i am trying to show the relations of the clasic hellenic=greek with modern times and eternity.
The light comes from apple's technology, interface also looking, and i Think that it is our choice to transforn it as a part of progress in our tradition style.

All features referenced in the Win ZEUS os X THEME are subject to change.



1. To use the ZEUS os X mstyle style , you must install a Patched uxtheme.dll ,
[ i.e. Go to website: [link] . Also because of possible problems with microsoft updates of your system please also see this page [link] . ]

Patrickgs[link] ]

OR [ Also If you want to see quiqly the visual style (without the other system files have to be replaced , forexample without ZEUS Back & Forward Buttons ) and the procces changing uxtheme is difficult, then use VistaGlazz, [link]

BECAUSE the vista shows all the visual styles as aero and aero basic please download DeskHack for Windows Vista, [link] and make enable to see the visual styles on vista with their real name.

2. Copy folder ZEUSosX cursors , to C: \ WINDOWS \ Cursors \ OS X Cursors

Copy THE WALLPAPERS INCLUDED from the folder of the theme Wallpaper to C: \ WINDOWS \ Web \ Wallpaper.

3. Copy ZEUS os X (VISUAL STYLE FOLDER) , to "C:\ windows \ Resources / Themes /" (provided C is your Windows drive).

See if the normal shellstyle has problems.
If it has problems,replace it from the shellstyle.dll which include in the file normal shellstyle.dll NOT AUTOHIDE FOLDERBAND.

a. Obtain Permisions and Ownership of Both browseui.dll and oobefldr.dll
Located in Windows\System32 [usually in C: drive]
b. Backup you original browseui.dll and oobefldr.dll by renaming them Browseui.old and oobefldr.old
c. Copy browseui.dll and oobefldr.dll from this pack to Windows\System32
d. Log off and back on to see changes.
(use the "Obtaining Permissions and ownership.txt" for help on installing)

The theme will have some limitations in use, as i have not enough time to complete, in the way i want, and the modification of the designing rules follow the principles of abstractiveness and simplicity under Zeus inspiration.


1. do not change border padings

2. do not change font size (leave it 96 dpi font size)

3. on menu, the number of recent programs to display must be 10 (= X),
[or whatever value it makes the lines on menu, having equal positions] via right
clik to your taskbar appears Taskbar and start menu propperties
and then select start menu/customize/ start menu size, number of recent programs to display change it to 10(OR 9, OR WHATEVER).

4. circle style image 515 does not looking well, to long shape elements that they use it, as i have not the answers i expect about this since now.

5. i give you 2 kind of shellstyles , the one of them it is slightly
better on aero and autohide the folderband, but to this you must not dissapear/deselect navigation pane via organize/layout/ navigation pane, or simply use the other kind of shellstyle i will post, in which the folderband is always open.
To appear the folderband you have to right clik over file 'Folders' on your navigation pane, when using autohide folderband shellstyle.dll.

6. for better of the theme looking, special for aero basic please use YzShadow .(my oppiion for working correct is to use it on vista as compatible with windows xp, via right click on YzShadow properties/copatibilities/ run this program in compatibiity mode, select windows xp).
YzShadow [link]

7. for left side buttons use please leftsider.[link]

8. Download RK Launcher 0.41 Leopard Inspired [link] (by Yoni)
[RK Launcher created by RaduKing.RK Launcher 0.41 Leopard Inspired project by Yoni] ÜberIcon [link] with Blur Plugins

10. download iColorFolder [link]

For having expose style effect:
for aero style only : Download Switcher from [link]
for basic style only : Download WinExposé from [link]


FOR RK Launcher 0.41 Leopard Inspired
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 RK Launcher 0.41 Leopard Inspired program
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 RK Launcher 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 "RK Launcher\RK Launcher 0.41 Beta Nightly" = felete the folder with the name of the
application , in this case current RK Launcher folder.]

Also see adding a SEPARATOR on navigation pane to the left side of the window i made [link]

Win ZEUS os X is based in the spirit of Apple, not a kind of copy.

Win ZEUS os X is ONLY for private use, and in any copy of it, you must allways include THE Read me file.
