FlyakiteOSX v3.5

FlyakiteOSX is a transformation pack. It will transform the look of an ordinary Windows XP+ system to resemble the look of Mac OS X. The installer simply automates the process of replacing critical system files, setting registry tweaks, and installing extras such as cursors, sounds, visual styles, etc.

In case you are not happy with the results of FlyakiteOSX, everything is completely removable. Just run the uninstaller from the Start Menu or from Add/Remove Programs.

FlyakiteOSX does not contain any spyware or ad-ware of any kind. All files needed for FlyakiteOSX are stored in the Windows directory in a folder named ‘FlyakiteOSX’ that is hidden by default. All registry values for FlyakiteOSX are written to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\FlyakiteOSX.

Developer : Chris Kite
Version : 3.5

what a freakin peace of useless stuff!!! D:<

Not even a breeze of the Mac OS Feeling… I’m gonna buy a real one!!!

This… peace of software ruined something in my system and now I cannot turn my folder icons to the default yellow folder look, they keep in that badly designed blue layout.

Try to make a new release that doesn’t messes up with the system so deeply, cuz I can not restore my folder icons, even with the restore feature in XP!!!

Ypu know what Jonathan, you are wrong!!! This piece of software is the greatst thing to hit the internet, also iTunes. Chris Kite You are a freaking genious!!!

I download the program and it doesnt run. why? it just puts my computer into hibernation mode.

Comment by J├Ârch on 2007-10-30 18:16:13

Its the main feature of flyakite osx to change the system icons in windows DIRECTLY, not with some kind of program, that must run in the background. Anyway you have a backup folder C:\WINDOWS\FlyakiteOSX\Backup, where all the original exe and dlls. lay in. OF COURSE YOU MUST HABE ADMIN RIGHTS DURING INSTALL / UNINSTALL: i HAVE “MACIFIED” DOZENDS OF COMPUTERS; ABSOLUTELY NO PROBLEM

I know how you feel. Sometimes things don’t always work out. But here’s a theme you can download (straight from Microsoft!) that might bring some happiness back into your world!

MS Zune Desktop theme

Comment by jay on 2008-01-02 16:55:47

1. create a blank icon at the dock, right click on that icon then click “Dock Entry Property”, at the link box (below title) click browse and find the directory of iTunes. Mine looks like this

C:\Program Files\iTunes\iTunes.exe

this didnt work mines till says something about the DLL?

Comment by Mike on 2008-04-27 14:58:19

Then that has nothing to do with the program. There is something wrong with your itunes download and u need to reinstall it.

Comment by Jeroen on 2008-02-28 01:14:38

Ehm, you have to deleted itunes im sorry for you.

Then you have to install itunes again!

hey i download flyakiteoxs v3.5 and i installed it on my pc which is windows2000 and when i uninstall it my systems all crashed , i can’t controal any thing ( my address bar gone , quick start not working , all things in start menu not working any more !!! ) i think he wrote something in my dll system and when he restore them , they became like factory setup . my msn plus gone daam i need help to fix this

Comment by internetworld7 on 2006-09-04 03:31:14

Wow emad, The description for Flyakite OSX clearly says it is for Windows XP. Then when you attempt to install it the software again tells you it is only compatible with Windows XP ONLY!

It’s pretty amazing that you overlooked all of this and installed it on a Windows 2000 system. If you ever upgrade to XP, Flyakite OSX works like a charm. :)

Comment by daniele on 2006-09-05 12:12:49

Absolutely true! In my computer it is just like having a mac!!!

This is really nice, but it really doesn’t give you the full OSX experience. Because it’s still windows xp. :-(

Comment by mk on 2007-12-23 04:27:00

to get more of a full feel of OSX try removing tour icons by right clicking on yer desktop, go to arange desktop icons, uncheck “display desktop icons”.
once you have done that try download yahoo widgets. it comes with a few widgets but you can download more.

also make sure you have installed EVERYTHING!!!!!!!! on the flyakiteOSX program

Erm, as soon as i start downloading.. no bars or progress goes… is that bad?

Comment by Osho Studios on 2006-09-23 23:53:24

This skin/theme is exellent. I get the nice apple GUI and basic gui features and I get the great Windows OS. This is why I like Windows XP. Lots of cool programs.

“Great Windows OS”?

Comment by Ben on 2007-12-17 15:54:39

WTF I agree this is a nice replacement for the crap XP UI, but anyone who thinks it makes it perform anything like OSX is a card short of deck.

OSX is unix based ie stable, fast & efficient

XP has it’s charm ie keeping PC ugly so they stay out of the living room :D

Comment by Lok on 2007-01-26 04:23:54

some curiousity… in the picture that show from this (windows xp) to this (mac osx), the looks of windows xp is also different from original xp? (for example, the right side of the taskbar, had silver color, while the original ones have the same color with the rest of the taskbar).

Is it using additional/3rd party themes? if so, where to download?


Comment by Kevin on 2007-01-31 13:23:48

Comment by Rufus D. on 2007-02-03 10:38:02

I love it!! Had minimal problems @ install, cos I forgot to turn off Scumware protection, but it works great!!! Its worth reading about it first, and picking the option you want to install… the QUICKLAUNCH bar emulator thingy (there are TWO different ones as options) didnt work so well for me, so I nuked that part. I put it on a Fujitsu A3110 Lifebook w/ Win MCE, its not a problem. The Lifebook is white just like a MAC anyway… nobody will even know if I dont want them to. No real functional difference, but the added memory resident apps (4 or 5) could add to lag on an older XP install…. rally have to have the thing tuned ahead of time, or it’ll slow down older bloated installs. Again… I love it so far!
Since its made of a few different programs (indipendant), each one has options, skins, and plug-ins.
