This is a really nice Vista and XP Classic Theme Mod. Included the fonts in my addon thanks to WPI's FontInstaller.exe and also some Custom My Computer, Docs, Net Places and Recycle Bin Icons

I like it but I think the VS itself needs tweaking.

And maybe add a All Windows version

The Font installer inside this Addon "classicfonts.exe" is not 8.3 Complaint...

rick,
You really should consider using that as your avatar!!

Now, I know I'm gonna sound like an idiot here, but how is this theme different from the Windows Classic already included in XP?

[edit]
Extracted it, and played with the msstyles file. Good stuff. Forgive me for ever doubting you.

PS: Does this overwrite the default Windows Classic theme?

Its not M$ built :lol:
When you see its page on devianart (or just the picture), you will see differences in it. Modified start menu, new start button. Its vista like :)
And one more, you have to hack your uxtheme.dll for using it. Thats the biggest difference :wink:
