imac theme for Windows 8 RTM 64bit made by Pavlos Pitselas.

imac is an osx style theme under my personal view for Windows 8 RTM 64bit.

see some preview screenshots of the theme zeusosx.deviantart.com/art/ima…

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

Special Thanks to DM-moinmoin www.deskmodder.de/blog/ for uploading the 64bit system files, so to be this modification for 64 bit systems.
------------------------------------------------------

the theme is made to work when to default size, so go to Control PanelAppearance and PersonalizationDisplay and be sure that you have select (default) Smaller 100% .

There are on this download, system files that can be used only on 64 versions of windows 8 RTM (64 bit), and including instructions text.

But you have to replcace also system files that exist to c:windowssyswow64 folder which are 32 bit ones, so you have to copy also my imac theme for Windows 8 RTM 32bit zeusosx.deviantart.com/art/ima… and copy those files from there.
There is instructions text which explain those.

Please download 7zip www.7-zip.org/download.html for unzip the files and follow carefully the instructions included.
as also please, about taking ownership in files of windows 8 have a look to this www.intowindows.com/take-owner… to this www.addictivetips.com/windows-…
i recomend after unzip the file to take ownership to the folder [selecting during the procedure this to be applied to all subfolders of it]

before doing anything make a restore point .

as also after you copy paste the system files dll, following the instructions, to C:WindowsSystem32 take again the ownership of them.

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

I do not allow any modifications of my work.

I N S T R U C T I O N S      

There are on this download, Themes and visual styles that can be used only on 64 versions of windows 8  RTM  (64 bit).

------

so here :  UNZIP the file using 7zip  www.7-zip.org/download.html

go to Control Panel\User Accounts and Family Safety\User Accounts  select 'Change User Acount Control settings' and set the

slider down to 'never notify' position.

1. To use the visual styles ( mstyle) , you must install specific files to C:\Windows\System32,

or use a patcher download from  www.syssel.net/hoefs/software_…

or use a UxTheme patch, as this from Woot332 at WinUnleaked: dl.dropbox.com/u/2073343/UxThe…

or  use this utility  from Raphael  www.uxstyle.com/

take ownership of the original files and replace them with the new ones.

see How To Take Ownership And Grant Permissions To Access Files & Folders In Windows 8

www.addictivetips.com/windows-…

then take permitions and ownership of shell32.dll, imageres.dll and explorerframe.dll that exist to C:\Windows\System32

rename the :

imageres.dll         ,    shell32.dll                 and        explorerframe.dll                                that exist to C:\Windows\System32, to :

imageres.original  ,  shell32.original     and to    explorerframe.original       respectively.  

copy paste the new ones from the ' 64 bit system files '  folder, that is included to my 'ZEUS os X imac/ZEUS os X imac 64bit version' folder.

take permitions and ownership also of the new shell32.dll, imageres.dll and explorerframe.dll that exist to C:\Windows\System32


Now be carefull, you have also to replcace also system files that exist to c:\windows\syswow64 folder which are 32 bit ones, so you have to copy also my

imac theme for Windows 8 RTM 32bit  zeusosx.deviantart.com/art/ima…

and copy those files from there.

so : download my imac theme for Windows 8 RTM 32bit    -->   zeusosx.deviantart.com/art/ima…

then take permitions and ownership of shell32.dll, imageres.dll and explorerframe.dll that exist to c:\windows\syswow64

the system files that exist to c:\windows\syswow64  are 32 bit ones, so be carefull.

rename the :

imageres.dll         ,    shell32.dll                 and        explorerframe.dll                                that exist to C:\Windows\System32, to :

imageres.original  ,  shell32.original     and to    explorerframe.original       respectively.  

copy paste the new ones from the ' 32 bit system files '  folder, that is included to my 'ZEUS os X imac/ZEUS os X imac 32bit version' folder.

take permitions and ownership also of the new shell32.dll, imageres.dll and explorerframe.dll that exist to  c:\windows\syswow64

Then restart your system.

2. Copy the folder 'OS X  Cursors' , to C:\Windows\Cursors .

Copy the 'Mac os X  Wallpapers'  of this pack  to  C:\Windows\Web\Wallpaper.

Copy the  'Mac os X  sounds'  of this pack  to  C:\Windows\Media  .

3. Copy all the folders included in the folder  ' Themes ' [after unzip all files, and copy them  to  C:\Windows\Resources\Themes  ,

provided C is your Windows drive).

4. Open  ["C:\Windows\Resources\Themes"] and choose the theme u want, select it, double clik to .

5. Copy the folder  TASKBAR'S FOLDERS from  zeusosx.deviantart.com/art/tas…
to  C:\    
Then drag with your mouse any of the folders exist to yoyr taskbar for 'PIN' each you choose.
There are some folders having shape of separator so you can divide your taskbar to sections.

go to Control Panel\User Accounts and Family Safety\User Accounts  select 'Change User Acount Control settings' and set the

slider up to the default 'notify me when apps try to make changes to my  computer' position.

Fine fine I'm sorry, okay? My Windows 8 is completely messed up. Thanks to myself.

Hey where did you get the OSX Icons from?
How would one go about making the drop shadow way bigger on the windows? Lion's drop-shadows are ridiculously big but i love them, and would love to have that in windows 8.
