Passion WB for Vista+XP by barberioX Passion WB for Vista+XP by barberioX
My 2nd Window Blinds theme for Vista and XP.

A million thanks to ~amaeli for creating the shellstyle.dll's for the Vista styles.
Without replacing it in Vista, some parts look crappy and some text isn't readable very well.
Also many thanks to ~godlike86 for letting me use his amazing lady in red, which fits perfectly in my preview. :bow:
Oh! And thanks to my friend ^OtisBee for letting me use his Abandon Otis Wallpaper.
It enhances my cheap preview a lot! :)

If you don't like the red color, you are able to change it in WindowBlinds (like many other settings).

This WB is "Open Source" and can be used, modded, burnt, copied (or whatever) as you like.
But please send me a link if you mod it, cause I would be eager to see what you made out of it.

I hope you like it. :)

Note: You need WindowBlinds to use this skin!

He,he... Yes it's a CAD skin.
I never released it. But if you want it, just click here. ;)
A click on the cover opens the panel.

Thank you very much! :bow: I remember there were some difficulties in XP. By that time I was only using Vista.
But other useres said it works fine in XP too.
So you could try it. ;)

Do you think I should have made it simplier?
Or you like it, because it's a simple theme?

Thank you very much for creating this. I went ahead and got the wallpaper and inset as well because they do compliment each other. Meditative atmosphere is what I wanted and you delivered. Thanks again !

Wow! That's great news! :)
So 1 Vista style covers both OS?
This would spare much time then. I'm just steps away from buying 7... :)

It covers XP too, because I was using it on my old laptop. Good work!

So I do WindowBlinds themes instead.

You need WindowBlinds by Stardock to use it (This isn't freeware).
If you have installed the application, just doubleclick the .wba file and replace the shellstyle.dll with the new one.
After restarting the system, it should look like in the preview. :)

Thanks.
But i can't install it.
It says that "the program it's not compatible with my OS"

Impossible! WB works with both - XP and Vista!
Please take a look at this link. I don't know if the download is a demo or not. But it should work.
Again: WB is no freeware. You can keep it updated by using Impulse (a platform similar to Steam). :)

Hope you can run it on your Vista...

Sorry for the late reply. I wasn't at home.
You can find the icons here on DA.
The CAD skin isn't released. I wasn't satisfied with it and buried it on my HDD. ;)

I don't know how I missed this, but I'm glad I came across it in someone's favorites! Classy, dark skin, love the start button, won't have to use startkiller on this one! And thanks for including a version with buttons on the right side, much appreciated!
