Daily Deviation

Given 2007-09-20
The first Visual Style for Windows Vista that got featured with a Daily Deviation had to be amazingly-done. I just found it! Check out the Satin2 VS by ~Michel8170. ( Featured by mauricioestrella )

The preview image depicts an Aero style theme, eventhough

 it is basic?

That time I updated only Vista SP1 systemfiles, but I'm sure you can grab the proper SP2 shell32.dll here at dA as well :)

This looks really great<3
But, ah, the theme doesn't apply for some reason? I double click the "Satin2.msstyles" file but the theme doesn't apply... What am I doing wrong?

Well, to be honest... I don't know
Did u patch all necessary system files? There is no problem with the theme for sure. Is it in the proper folder? (windows/resources/themes)?

Yes I patched all the files with VistaGlazz and it is indeed in the proper folder. ;x;

Hallo Michel

möchte mich auf diesen Wege bedanken für das Theme für Win7,vllt kannst Du es sagorpirbd übermitteln, leider lässt sich die explorer.exe für ein 64 bit System nicht nutzen. Währe es mögchlich das für Win 7 +64bit zu machen ?

Dir und deiner Familie ein erfolgreiches 2010

:iconmichel8170:

Also Sagor ist es leider nicht möglich auf seinem 32bit System die 64bit Explorer.exe zu modifizieren.

Tut mir leid..

Michel8170 Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2010
Deinen Dank und die Nachfrage bezügl. x64 explorer.exe habe ich an ihn weitergeleitet und gebe dir dann nochmal bescheid. Persönlich nutze ich die explorer.exe aber nicht und bin mit dem Port sehr zufrieden.

Dir ebenfalls alles Gute für 2K10 :)

hallo michel8170,

da mein englisch leider sehr schlecht ist, möchte ich meine frage in landessprache stellen.
wird es einen visuelstyle für win 7 geben ?
satin 2 war mein einziger style für vista weil der für mich der absolute style war. nun habe ich win 7.
falls ja ich habe ein x64 bit system.

mit freundlichen grüßen

Hallo Komaro

Vielen Dank. Freut mich sehr, dass dir Satin so gut gefällt.

Da ich derzeit nicht dazu komme, arbeitet Sagor an einem Satin Port für Win7. Momentan versuchen wir gerade das Benutzerbild im Startmenü zu entfernen ;)
Wenn alles klappt, kommt der Style noch vor Weihnachten raus & müsste auch auf x64 laufen.

Pardon my stupidity, but in your preview, your music folder has that large black section above the files in the folder, what is that called and how do you activate it?
Reply
:iconmichel8170:
Michel8170 Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2009
That large dark area is the shellstyle. You usually find the shellstyle on the top and the bottom of the windows.

With the modified shell32.dll in the package, the whole shellstyle image is dispayed on top, like you can see in the preview. It's actually same with Satin (1) and here I use the topshellstyle as well: [link]
