Vista Classic - BETA 2.6 by UkIntel Vista Classic - BETA 2.6 by UkIntel
*For windows VISTA only*

THIS IS A BETA ONLY... STILL UNDER CONSTRUCTION

VISTA CLASSIC
-------------------
DWM Enabled Windows Classic Style.

I have created this Theme/visual style for those of you that want the "Classic Look" along with Aero's DWM features
such as Flip3D, Live thumbnails, Colourization & Transperency!.

Ideal for the work place

A basic theme is included, however to take advantage of the DWM Features, your system must be capable of running the Aero based style.

Packed into "easy to use" installers

Requires uxtheme patch
-------------------------------
Download Auto-Patcher [link]
Download Manual Patch Files [link]

Enjoy!

See the making of this theme here [link]

Thanks for the great theme. Now I can finally use aero features with classic theme.

But there something wrong with the explorer status bar, it isn't always displaying file information. It would be great if you could fix this. [link]

Good idea but the color adjustment results are a bit dull. Will you fix it by next release? If so, I'll "watch."

I got a similar theme by accident. Installed WindowBlinds, it fucked up and then it resulted to the removal of Aero and the theme I was applying. All I could see was a classic style of Vista which looked fairly similar to yours. ^_^

when you use microsoft's windows classic theme, many of the cooler themes (shadow, flip3d ect.) this theme allows these features to run and it has the looks of windows classic.

First of all really nice work I like this style alot. A couple of questions thu, 1)When I installed it it seems that for some reason the shutdown buttons on the start menu seem to be too big and kinnda hang off the side and the options box that comes up when you hover over the arrow is detached from the start menu, what I mean is theres a space between the two that you can see the desktop thru any ideas why? 2)Do you know of a way to get rid of the outline boxes that surround the icons on the desktop and windows explorer windows when you hover the mouse over them? 3)Is there a way to make the start menu any smaller then the default size? Again very nice work on this UkIntel

...but that doesn't look like the "Classic" look.

the minimize/maximize/close buttons are weird shapes.

I'm not a fan of Classic whether it is 'real' 98/2000 or a theme like XP. However this is really impressive work and you are to be commended.

it's good but I think there are a little bit too much glossy effects. A classic theme had nothing of these effects.

This is SUPER hot. Ironically I have Windows XP, and am running a near flawless Vista Aero transparency skin, but I want this.

Dare I say this is better than HmmXp?

When i first made the switch to vista, i couldnt really notice the diference.
But Once you have set everything up the way you want it, and get a skin that you like... Well now i LOVE vista... and would never go back.
