A truely beautiful theme - but (there always seems to be a but) I guess I've missed something.
Parts of some windows (like the system properties) still show the original windows color, which makes text unreadable.

Please take a look at the atteached image t see what I'm talkign about:

I should add that I have not replaced the system files (yet). Maybe that's the trick? I don't really like to mess with system files...

Thanks anyway!

system file are responsible for this are of windows.
but you should not use the system files that come with the VS, as they are out of date for sure...

What am I missing here? I installed everything ok, I think. But the theme comes up looking dull. My computer had Aero and I expected the theme to show it. But all it shows is Windows basic. I figure it might be something I'm missing.

Hi! This win-skin is the greatest ever and the only one for me.
But Ive something what looks wrong.
1. different to your screenshot Ive above menu bar round corners and border like typical windows and trancparence.
2. Some Programs use status bar which is still in style of typical windows (for exaple Firefox).
3. Firefox tab bar is in typical windows blue white fading style mainly the inactive tabs.
4a. When I add a toolbar to the windowsbar the bar get taller and the "start"-symbol became uncenter.
4b. The toolbars havent the right mouseover effect and maybe shouldnt be white.
I wish it would look more elegant like not so much button(style) more free not so many borderlines and that the windows bar get up the fading style and darker like the dark gray what you used as well.
But actually the big problem is the first one. Hope you can help me and Thanks a lot.

Good Luck.

Of course i did.But as i remember i didn't changed any of system files but i had minimal theme.From that i assumed that hack for removing address bar is made in the theme's files?

Wow, this theme is amazing. Fully integrated and everything. Thanks to you and the others who helped out. Also, I have a "Take Ownership" registry entry for Windows 7 RTM and the remover for it if you want it. You should include it in the download...even though I have a full Admin Account activated I still had some trouble taking ownership of the files for some reason. I can put it on Rapid Share or something if you want. You, just to make it easier for the folks.

Great job!!!

How do you not get the blurred bit below the taskbar when you put your taskbar to the top?
