As title? I preferably want a free one if it exists!
Styler 1.4 best piece of software on earth , no spyware no crap , no need to even install i dont think!
I use a custom version of the Royale theme (black) without any nasty third party apps . Why not just patch the uxtheme.dll and not have to bother wasting precious resources running third party apps to use themes?
patching the UXtheme.dll doesent work on all versions of windows , doesent work on mine anyway
Xpize. only works on 32bit, but it allows custom themes and patchs hundereds of icons. makes a huge difference to how windows looks and goes far beyond what simple themes can do
I just installed that. Nice looking. Could you link where you can download different styles as I cant find one.
you can use any theme you would with style xp or a hacked dll. deviantART has loads of quality themes you can use
edit: actually, xpize + styler = winnOr
Yeah i could never get the uxtheme patch to work, so i managed to find a "Universal Theme Patcher" which you can get from here: http://www.aqua-soft.org/board/showthread.php?t=30500
Just downloaded it, double clicked it and it worked first time for me
Edit:OK, sorry, just spotted you said it didn't work on your version of windows? This universal patcher will work on 32bit versions of XP, but not on 64bit versions.
help i installed xpize and styler, i hate them both.
Ive got rid of xpize but it removed my start bar theme, it is a offical but i cant remember what its called, i was form the micrsoft site, also i cant remove styler as i see no option too
whats wrong with them? lol. i dont know anybody who prefers the old crap icons lol.
as for removing styler, have you looked at the add/remove programs list? its on mine...
lol i just hate the boot up screen and the new log on screen, i dont like change very much lol, its all gone now, i had a bit of a blonde moment and didnt check the add/remove. what i HATE most is the stansard windows xp start bar which has decided to make a reappearance at the cost of removing my old one which was similar but blend together and was more shiny/futuristic, now i cant remember what it was called tho, heres the start bar i used to have
ive just installed xpize. it looks sweet. just one question, whats that manifest tab do in the settings?
ugh, xpize has serious crash issues with my machine!!
Are there any others out there?
apparently it makes old apps 'xp-style aware'. whatever that means lol. Probably means you cna skin them.
Use windowsblinds, samurize and object dock. Best combination ever
He said free so...
I like using LiteStep but its not for everbody...
you're using a duff patcher then, the version 5 multi patcher works with all xp/2003/64bit os's
i just use nlite to patch it before installing windows, also works with all versions
^nicest style there is imo, either that or google for 'b0se'
Lol dirty thread revivers
/points the blame at bigmouse64!
