Vista Port of Alduin

- Visual Style
- 32+64bit Vista

Updated June 3, '09:
-Thinner window borders
-New start menu shutdown (thanks to =jg-visuals for the find)
-Went back to the more XP style
-Changed fonts to Avant Garde
-And more (honestly, I can't remember)

Not designed for use with details pane (bottom shell). Turn off by opening an explorer window, select Organize in the upper left, from the drop down list select Layout, then click on Details Pane.

Special thanks to Lassekongo83 for his generosity.
If you like, also give a fave to the original.

HELP: If the Start Button does not display correctly when you first apply the style, log off, then log back on. Also, make sure you use 96dpi.

Right click the taskbar and select "Properties". Then choose the Start Menu tab on the top. Click the "Customize" button and choose what you want to show in the Start Menu.

How do I change the default radio button that's used in IE? I use IE for some work web applications and the radio button is tiny with just some horizontal lines. This isn't a problem in Firefox. I've been trying to figure out how to change it, but can't seem to find any info on where the default radio button is used.

Here's a screen. The buttons right under the search field

Love everything else!

I knew you didn't like when I switched most to the default font, SegoeUI.

I love this visual style, and I'm using it right now,
but do you know why I can't use Aero features such as window thumbnails in taskbar, shadowed windows, or even a search bar in the Start menu? Thanks

I installed it once and it worked fine (you can see in my screenshot).

...But I recently re-installed it and now the start button is a little off-alignment. I even logged out and made sure that I was using 96 dpi. Any suggestions?

Perfect. Officially the new Vista theme here in the studio - thanks ever so much for your time and such high quality work. I too am a fan of Lassekongo83 - you have done him justice indeed. My machines here were loaded with XP until recently, and now have the slick polished look they enjoyed before (aero=yuck). Again,many thanks to the author AND porter in equal measure. Peace -

So, do you use Ave's Vista Style Builder to port these, or is it all the hard way? I'd love to use a program like VSB, but 22.50 is far too much for my jobless pockets. :(

I noticed you are using style selector, quit unchecking the "Basic Only" box.
Reply
:iconsweatyfish:
sweatyfish Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2008
It's your setup and not the visual style. This is a basic only style and you somehow forced it to use aero. There is nothing wrong with the style.

would you share "style selector" with me cause its unavailable? do you also have "font selector"?

(answer is optional ;) )

you can also select the font with the style selector, just give me your e-mail :)
