A long time ago i released a beta of mac for vista

I’m not impressed at all. I’ve seen alot better work then this. Sorry for the negative comments dude but go look at Steve Grenier’s OS X Tiger Windows Blind. Then you will know what you need to copy next time.

Hope this helps.

Give the guy some credit. The theme you are referring to is for XP btw…HUGE difference when it comes to theming Vista. And Steves theme is a decent effort. Not even close to the best Tiger themes for WB around. And this guy is going for a Leopard look..not Tiger. So think before you speak because your comments are very naive. And youre trying to help him by telling him what to copy? Thats really intelligent. Hats off to you!

As for the theme, its pretty good. Though im not a big fan of the brushed interface anymore. The shellstyle could use some tweaking.

it is my question, too - how to istall? you must have a *.theme file ti istall under vista. i only found a *.msstyle file…!?

Copy the folder containing .msstyle file into your C:\Windows\Resources\Themes folder. Then run the msstyle file from there…or simply go to the Desktop Properties and select the theme from there. Im assuming you have already patched the necessary system files to use third party visual/msstyles. Or better yet, if you havent, do it safely using the software Vista Glazz.

So…This Is Only A Theme, Not Like Flyakite That Changes The Whole GUI ??? So We Just PutItIn The Themes Folder And Pick This Theme As Our Theme ??? Huh ???
