-Download and install [link] and [link]
-Extract the contents of my skin's ZIP file
-Exit ViStart and ViGlance from the notification area
-Select "ViStart" and "ViGlance" in the extracted ZIP file and press Ctrl+C
-Navigate to C:\Program Files
-Press Ctrl+V and click OK on all dialogs

(Note: for Vista x64, the program files folder is in C:\Program Files (x86) )
__________________________________________________________________________
This theme perfectly stimulates the Windows 7 Superbar and Start Menu on XP and Vista.

ViGlance: Simulates Windows 7 Superbar
Improved images:
-GroupMenu
-Start_button
-Everything else

ViStart: Stimulates the Windows 7 Start Menu
Improved images:
-Everything
-Base
-All Rollovers
__________________________________________________________________________

Install Fonts:

You do not need to follow the following instructions if you are using Vista or 7.

To install Segoe UI font, just go in the "Segoe UI" folder and copy all of the files to C:\WINDOWS\Fonts.

You're done!

To enable cleartype for the optimal aero experience, right-click a blank area of the desktop,
click properties, click the appearance tab, click effects, check font smoothing, and from
the drop-down list, select cleartype. Click OK on all windows.

Extras (for advanced users):

Perfect Taskbar w/ blur: [link]

follow that tutorial with Visual style [link] and if you know how to use GIMP or Photoshop, use
[link] as the template and follow the instructions in [link] .

Border Skin (recommended, for n00bs): [link]

Show Desktop button: [link]

Notes:

In the preview I'm running WindowBlinds since I'm too lazy to configure another one of my XP VMs.
If you want the WB theme: [link]

I'm not using True Blur ViStart because it screws up the start orb.

If you have any:

Program-related problems: search for it on lee-soft.com or contact me and I'll give you the respective links.

After copying/pasting stuff to Program Files, I tried opening ViStart but got an error saying it needed to close.

In windows 7 home edition when you hover above the taskbar preview, you can see a large preview of the minimised window. Did you ever look at the boarder of that preview window. It is transparent but not glossy. That was awesome. If you know a win 7 theme such that please give me link. I need it so badly.. :D

I have windows 7 ultimate, but i don't know what you're talking about.

send me a screenshot and i'll see what i can do.

Please take a look at the window border. It is transparent but not glossy. You can get this preview window while hovering over the taskbar preview of a minimised window.

i see it. however, due to the limitations of viglance, this effect is not possible.

OK alpha. But thanks a lot for your help.

ainq Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2011
no prob. contact lee-soft if you want this feature though.

the effect you're specifying requires a multiply filter instead of the normal PNG overlay, which ViGlance does not support. Ask lee-soft if he can implement that.

I thought this was a remake of the Windows 7 theme for Windows 7, with some kind of different colouring but I couldn't figure out what it was looking different. It looks exactly like the Windows 7 theme, and then I saw this is for XP - great jazz.

and that's why it says for xp on the preview.

This deviation motivated me to give Viglance a new try. And i must say Lee improved it a lot. Looks better and is faster than SBar now. Only it's still unstable and buggy as hell. Lee should fix this and he should remove this ugly splashscreen. Your skin itself is great.:)

thanks! i know that sbar (in my opinion, and by comparisons) looks fake and milky, and viglance is so much better looking with your tutorial.

thanks!

why must we uncheck Viorb?
Reply
:iconrdtsod:
RDTSOD Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2011
because viorb and viglance both make orbs.
viglance tries to put the orb on top of vistart's one and you have 2 orbs, on 2 px top of the later orb and and the other on top of it.

viglance screws up in viorb mode. when you click the start button, it fades back to normal instead of going into down.

tested on 3 computers and 2 vms.
