Classic theme addon?

Post by fly » Tue Jul 18, 2006 12:44 pm

Would it be possible to create an addon for the Windows Classic theme to be the default in XP? I'm obviously kinda new to this stuff and wondered if its something that could be done, or maybe already has been?

Cretèur Addon By Vier

Browse to the .theme file in C:\Windows\Resources\Themes and it will do the rest

But i dont know if there is a .theme file for the classic

Actually, it'd be easier to modify your WINNT.SIF file to have it load classic. I forget the exact parameter, but it can be found on the MSFN Unattended Guide.

@ricktendo64: There is. :)
