Great Theme!
Please port to Windows 8 using the latest BETA of Windows/Vista Style Builder.
And thanks for all the hard work!

thanks, been working on it and it will take time,

WSB is still not compatible with Win8 64bit i suppose..:(

Hey erelchris,

Not sure what you mean by no Win8 64bit support.
Some people are porting to Win8 and including 64 bit Shell32.dll without issues:
Apparently 1.5.5 version of WSB also does ribbon without issues...

Could you also include a version with gradiented dark background to folders in windows file explorer similar to here:
but with more gradient.
The key is for this not to be affecting white background of Office/CAD/Content Creation apps. Is it possible?

dont have the latest version of WSB yet. Cant afford. :D
so i'll need someone to port it to windows 8..haha

For the background, it will always affect the Office and other apps too,
that's why i chose it to be a white background.
haven't searched for a workaround though..

and here is a version with dark windows explorer background that does not affect content creation apps:

guess there are no more excuses left... :)

A couple more dark Win8 theme examples:
[link] - this with more non-linear dark gradient
[link] - this is good but I think it makes Office and rest of apps have black background.

I must be a bit stupid, 'cause I can't figure how to install it ! Looks amazing though!

Please download first >>>>>>>>>>

you will download a file, where it contains the link for the theme..
(deviantart has not allowed archives/exe)

if you're on Windows 7 32bit, just open the download (WinRAR must be installed) and open the APPLICATION and be guided..
