Aero_Theme_8.zip required install guide:
1. If your OS is not patched you MUST make it so:
http://uxstyle.com/builds/UxStyle_sep23_x86_x64_possibly_bugged.zip
If the theme does not apply properly, you may need to restart Unsigned Theme services in Task Manager -> Services tab.
Or Run as Administrator the BATch included in \Required folder.
Copy the theme files to:
C:\Windows\Resources\Themes
2. Aero Glass MUST be installed to have rounded borders and to remove fill color behind caption text:
http://glass8.eu/
Configure Aero Glass:
http://www.glass8.eu/files/AeroGlassGUI.7z
There is a Registry file in \Required folder that MUST be merged to get windows 7 Glass values.
3. In order to make Explorer look same as in the preview you MUST install OldNewExplorer [does NOT work without it!]:
http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/170375-oldnewexplorer-make-your-81-explorer-work-like-win78-one/
MUST select ONLY these options BEFORE you click Install:
- Use command bar instead of Ribbon;
- Show details pane on the bottom;
- Enable glass on navigation bar.
4. If you want themed Start Menu/Ribbon +/- Start Button/Orb you MUST install StartIsBack (SIB):
Copy SIB folders to:
C:\Users\%UserProfile%\AppData\Local\StartIsBack
After installing SIB you can apply Styles:
http://startisback.com/
5. Reboot.
