Vista Mods On XP V2.0 by kampongboy92 Vista Mods On XP V2.0 by kampongboy92
:: Vista Mods On XP V2.0 ::

Hi Guys,

Since we all know that the past mods pack that I was created (Vista Mods On XP) looks cool but it still have some bugs. So, I will do the best to fixed some bugs in this mods pack.

The system files that include in this pack are:
1. explorer.exe
2. shell32.dll
3. xpsp2res.dll
4. sysdm.cpl
5. xpsp1res.dll (New)
6. msgina.dll (New)

BUG FIXED:
----------

1. xpsp1res.dll
- This file is needed to change the version number that display in About Windows box.
(For example, from version 5.1 to version 6.0)

2. msgina.dll
- This file needed to change the About Windows box (for bitmap file)

UPDATED:
--------

1. sysdm.cpl
- This file has been updated to look like Vista System Properties.

Important Note !!!
:greenprobe:- Please make backup before replace your system files.
:greenprobe:- These files can only work in Windows XP SP2 (English version ONLY).
:greenprobe:- Only do in SAFE MODE...

what is shall32.dll..??

starfox00 Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2007
Shell32.dll is the main graphical interface to the windows environment. without it, you wouldnt have things like the run dialog and the start menu: they are hidden away there and called via windows hooks.

One more thing. Please correct the comments of the pack.

1-msgina.dll is the Shutdown GINA dll and is used to control the interface of the Shutdown dialogue box.

2- Also about dialog box is changed by shell32.dll. :nod:

The packs good! It has a problem that when you want to View the pictures as thumbnails or Icons etc from the "Views" tab of the explorer toolbar it dosent work. I think its an error in the designing of shell32.dll. :-)

Actually I want update and fix this problem. But I need someone to make installer for this pack. If you can or know someone can make installer for this pack, I will update this pack as possible as I can.

Avoid this like the plague. Does not work. Changes everything back to XP default,because of Windows Update wanting to download a security patch.No wonder Jordan88 put this in the scraps pile.He probably had the same problem and /or complaints.

I didnt have any such problem Dakers. Infact your such a lame user that you dont even know how to use computer applications...Lol dont mind :D

dakers Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2007
I'm lame. You have a lot of nerve saying that. Well i did have those problems with Windows Update security issues when using your mods.Do you have Service Pack 2 in your computer. It was only by removing certain files in the Software Distribution file in C:\Windows that i was able to get it to work finally,but probably compromising safety and /or security at the same time. What you need to do is make your mods into a exe installer. That may solve the problems that i had. I have used computers for a while now. I do know what i'm talking about.OK.

Yes Dakers you might be experiencing problems but you called the Vista XP link a crap that was rather rude of you. Knowing that Microsoft had removed all links to the theme. I arranged it with great difficulty and you were rude with your comments. The link however works fine!

Yes it was .I regret saying anything about that. I found a different link with the same thing so no more problems. Let us end the hostility ok. I will check out your gallery and see what you have . And i will not make any more rude comments.

This mod is so great that i am planning to slipstream this into my install cd but i need to know if the replacement shell32.dll replace all icons or just some.

This does work, but there is a problem. Automatic updates from Windows Update keeps downloading a security update,and it changes half of my icons and this application back to XP default. What is the problem with this. Didn't you anticipate that this would happen when you change shell.dll file or any of those files in your mods pack. This is frustrating that i have to undo the mess already three times. Why should i have to compromise security for this stuff. If you have a workaround fix to this let me know.

I'm sorry for the problem, mate :).
I think it is better to use the Vista Mods On XP [link] if you still want to replace the files system..

:icondakers:
dakers Featured By Owner May 24, 2007
I can't use that one either kampongboy92. I still get the problem of Windows Update wanting to download that security update which prevents a remote computer from taking control of your system. I never had a problem with other Vista modifications,only this one and version 2.0. It must be the problem with the shell32.dll file or the xpsp2res.dll file. I won't use it until maybe you can figure it out or maybe there is someone out there that has a fix for that dll file problem. But otherwise it is a good mods pack except for that file problem.

This pack actually can replace the icons, windows explorer and about windows only.... other than that you may need to use Icon Packager to fix the icons that are missing... For the windows XP visual style, you need to use the WindowsBlind software...

No, i mean that Icons are the only thing that happens, everything else is jsut the old winXP theme.

Finally ver 2.0 is out. Gonna try it soon. Any chance this will be made into a .exe installer like Vista Icon pack 3.0? Its irritating to change maunally everytime whenever there is System Update and the files are changed back again.

very very nice! i love Vista too!
pakai bahasa ini aja ya :D mau tanya:
- jika saya install Vista Mods ini, apakah akan terlihat seperti di preview, maksud saya seperti efek transparan glass?
- bagaimana cara uninstall?
Reply
:iconkampongboy92:
kampongboy92 Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2007  Student Interface Designer
- Efek glass akan terlihat jika saudara menggunakan software Windowblinds 5.1 or later & memori grafik yg bagus... Masalah sebenar pc saya ialah menggunakan Pentium III dan mempunyai graphic card yg kurang memuaskan ...
- Cara unistall ialah... saudara perlulah pergi ke SAFE MODE (Normal mode pun boleh). Kemudian, gunakan 'Replacer' dan replace files yang sedia ada dengan original files. Selepas itu, restart balik pc saudara... Itu saje... :D

:nod: saya mengerti. PC saya juga kurang memuaskan, Celeron dan graphic card yg kurang....ya saudara mengerti kan :depressed: di PC saya juga sudah terinstall WindowBlinds, dan tidak bisa menimbulkan glass effect ketika meng-aplly sebuah theme. Untuk menghibur, saya memakai visual styles. :cry:
