You can associate cursors in a theme file, then set that theme as default in WINNT.SIF. Have a look at the theme file within MrNxDmX's Tablet PC addon to see how to associate cursors. Then have a look at Nightwolf81's WINNT.SIF [Shell] example to set a theme as default.

You can enable the Quick Launch toolbar by default with a registry entry.

I'll defer to others here for your other requests.

5eraph,
You can associate sounds with a theme file as well, correct?

I'm trying to make an all-inclusive Vista addon that comes up as default.
Just need sounds.

:D

That sounds right, RaGhul. :)

You can see how that's done in the theme file from Microsoft's Egypt Nile Theme.

heh, try nlite. the addons here will still work but you get all those options using nlite and you do not have to mess with editing files. great place to start for a noobie :) it is how i started :)

RaGhul, here is a Vista Sound Pack, a silent installer. You need only to open the archive and to extract by yourself the sounds.Also i atached a regfile that will make them default. It maybe be useful. Good luck ! And waiting for the theme ....
