Two, I'm in no position to be in any trouble. Unlike you. ;)

1.) It's the standard Vista-Theme as far as I know -> He's usining the Vista Beta
2.) and more possible: He's using a Vista-Theme for XP and I really want that too!

Where do you get that?

The vista transformation pack turns your theme and icons to look as if it was Vista, but really your still running XP :)

Luk3us
28-11-2006, 12:53 PM
In my experience, you usually have the shell file, which is what you have, and another file that goes with it. Either with the extension of ".msstyles" or ".theme"

Pehaps you are missing something? Also, you have to change the style for it to come into affect, via the dispaly properties window.


Note the Apple product placement :p

Subtle, I didn't even notice it till you mentioned it....;)

Ok, just for you I decided to go get a stupid looking Vista theme. Personally I think they make the toolbars to big and the dialog buttons to small. Anyway this is what I did.


Firstly I downloaded a theme from here (http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/42765381/?qo=25&q=boost%3Apopular+in%3Acustomization%2Fskins%2Fwin dows%2Fvisualstyle+vista)

After it downloaded I extracted all files from the rar archive, now go into the extract files it should be like this MVRTM\Visual Style\MVRTM, once you see the file, MVRTM.msstyles double click it, it should bring up the display properties box, it should have already selected the new theme, just hit ok and it will take a few seconds then boom its done. ;)

gmoney375
29-01-2007, 10:36 PM
ok sorry to say this but it still didnt work,
here is E X A C T L Y what i did:
downloaded from link
opened rar extracted
all files to desktop
opened the file (MVRTM/Visual Themes/MVRTM)
then clicked on the MVRTM visual style
it had the display properties/appeances opened
and windows xp style selected
then i clicked ok, nothing
i went to themes
and it wasnt there

=(

You do have Windows XP by the way right?

gmoney375
30-01-2007, 01:27 AM

Well I don't know why it isn't working. Maybe it doesn't like you or something...

You can always download this (http://www.tgtsoft.com/download.php) its a program that allows you to select and change themes... Though its shareware...
