Recommended Posts

HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I really can't apply the visual styles (.msstyles) in Windows Vista Home Premium!

I downloaded the themes, i thought they're .theme files and can be applied and opened...

Many-many themes were .msstyles

And when I try to install the Vista OS X, its says that I must install Windows Vista SP1 (Service Pack 1)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

THIS MADE ME A BIT HARD TO FIND THEMES BUT I STILL CAN FIND THE Themes (.theme) files FOR THE THEMES IN WINDOWS VISTA HOME PREMIUM I'M USING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The best I can do is suggest you use the " VistaGlazz " program ( tool )

It changes the system files which will allow you to install themes in Vista. Without

buying the Microsoft upgrade.

That is an oversimplification, but at the least this tool will let you make

Themes the old fashioned way. ie using the Windows Theme tool,

( Personalize / Theme ) than arrange the desktop how you like and save the

file using the " Save As... " Function . ( the one on the Theme Settings Screen

which opens when clicking Theme.

Beyond that, there are lots of Vista Themes available but they totally confuse me.

Some I cannot get to work at all, and some are terrific.

But the starting point is VistaGLazz. It will not hurt your system, It will reverse

the changes made with one click. I was using this before SP1 so I do not think

that, that matters.

As best I understand, those Downloadable Themes which have a Theme file

and are the " Msstyles " variety will work.

They are out there, Google " Vista Msstyles -XP ' The " -XP " helps to avoid the

XP themes which make XP look like vista. Watch out for these, they appear to be vista themes but are not.

Hope this helps.
