Funcionaba con un programa antiguo llamado StyleXP o con un patch de Neowin.net (forums) para Windows XP. Actualmente tendría que buscar en Google si existe algún programa o patch para que los Visual Styles funcionen con Windows 7 u 8.

this theme->:hump:<- me ..lol

WoW .. im so glad i found this theme i just swapped over from netscape to firefox .. upgraded the skin on firefox to the Redshift v2 red&black theme only to be horrified in realising i still got that nasty electric blue titlebar and taskbar at the top and bottom which spoilt the whole thing , so after staying up til 4am i managed to get this VS installed along with the cursor icons , objectdock (plus background) and a few other things , .. i downloaded the aries black icon set as there was nothing labelled acrylic for desktop icons :confused: .. is that the set you used with it ?

im in the middle of trying to get a yahoo messenger skin to match everything which is why i'd like to ask a question .. when someone messages me on msn or yahoo i dont get a flashing taskbar button if im viewing something else (ie.. my web browser is infront of my instant message window) ... tell a lie it does sort of flash but only the red outline blinks .. im wondering if theres a way i can sort this out so that the whole thing will flash red and black so i see the alert more clearly.. and if youd be so kind as to tell me how i'd appreciate it more than you 'll ever know
:flirty::please:
apart from this its a fantastic skin and has now encouraged me to transform my whole pc into red and black theme :excited:.. i can't fault it .. (well except maybe the start button is too big) ..lol :fear:

Thanks in advance for the help .. and also for the Themes :D

There are 2 ways I know of using Visual Styles:

1. With the program StyleXP, visit tgtsoft.com

2. Using UXTheme Multi-Patcher, visit neowin.net

They are downloaded separately. Using the program StyleXP is easy to install them.

Unzip the file and place the folder in the Object Dock's Background folder.
Usually C:\Program Files\ObjectDock\Backgrounds

I really like this, like someone else said, not usually a fan of red but I'm using this on my recently formatted laptop (every time I format a computer I change theme, helps me keep track of things). There are a couple of things I'm not so hot on though, the main one is the large buttons on the explorer window you have open (like the back button) - just not a fan of the outline effect, I love the 3D effect used on the taskbar, something like that would be cooler. The other things are the start button - I think it might look better with the flag just embossed rather than being quad-coloured, or something, and the highlight on the start menu items - the red used is totally new to the theme, and the 2d-ness of it all doesn't seem to fit in to me.

That said, I still think this is a top-notch theme, good job!

Thanks for liking it.

Because the visual style supports Multiple Font Size, the buttons match the size of the font. The size of the buttons will change if you increase or decrease the size of the font.

Also, it supports Multiple DPI Sizes for higher resolution monitors.

The outline effect is to have some contrast if a dark background/wallpaper is used. The color of the highlight of the start menu is for the same contrast reason.

I agree with you that the start button can be improved.
