Not by me though. Win 7 is an old OS. I would never go back to it. I could remake for 8.1. But that is as far back i would go.

Can you possibly convert this for Windows 10?

Hello, I don't know if you're still answering questions about this theme, but I figured I'd comment in case. I have been trying to install it for some time now, but although I have been reviewing your read me file time and time again, I can't seem to get it right.

I have moved all the files from the .zip into the Resources\Themes folder, but when I click on the "Luna" theme that shows up on my Personalization menu, it does not change the title bars of any windows. They don't seem to take on the Windows XP skin. It does, however, take on the Bliss wallpaper, the start bar, and the sounds.

I have installed Aero Glass for Windows 8.1 x64 and it is functioning. I have merged the Required files into the regedit. I have downloaded Old New Explorer and checked the settings advised on the read me. Alas, I am still encountering problems.

The explorer also is not looking like it does in the preview; the arrows are not turning green, rather, remaining blue. The control panel is also not in the correct format, although the background is blue.

Also, on the read me, it appears that the link for the configuration guide of Aero is no longer active. The same for the Old New Explorer.

I am wondering if perhaps the issue is the way I'm transferring the files into the themes folder. Do you have any insight to this? Is there a particular way to distribute the files?

I am more than happy to supply any screenshots you may want to see. Also, I happen to be using Classic Shell, if that is of any significance.

Thank you.

My apologies for the confusing "XP Luna 8.1" file, it's another luna theme I've been using until I can get this one to work as intended.

Would you mind if I built a Visual Style off of this? (I promise to give full credit, ofc :3 )

...if you'd like to know what the style is before deciding, just say so ._.

Windows 10 is a lost cause. That's why i downgraded to Windows 8.1 pro. It's all XAML crap.

you need to apply thin borders registry file and reboot. Otherwise you get that error.

or you can try this Tiny Windows Borders for Windows 8 by hb860

i don't see thin borders registry file in zip file, can you give me one plz? i don't want to use TinyWindowsBorders tiny app
Reply
:iconsimplexdesignsart:
SimplexDesignsART Featured By Owner Edited Feb 13, 2015  Hobbyist Interface Designer
that app just sets the registry file to have thin borders the same way. Its too much work to update the theme file for such a small thing.

if you are lazy to google the setting here you go  www.askvg.com/registry-tweak-t…

you need to read install instructions. It states you need OldNewExplorer. That is needed for the explorer mods.

Hehe, this is quite awesome indeed. Shall use when I'm having a nostalgic moment. ;)

I really wish MS would ramp up their customisation feature-set in Windows. Like the rectangle caption buttons kinda make it weird. They should allow us to change the metrics of the caption buttons, and the alignment of the window title...

Anyways, great work :)
