What SteveJobs was using on his Windows!

UPDATED: 6/29/12
full mac system tray icons.. (preview not updated)


theme tested only for Windows 7 x86 Service Pack 1

NOTE: for Windows 7 x64 PLEASE USE ONLY THE VISUAL STYLE and DONT INSTALL ICONS


REMIND you, this is not another Lion Theme for windows :)

This theme will provide you:
..full Mac Experience on your Windows 7
..best fonts + best icons (i've tried a lot of Lion Themes here and a lot failed on these)
..theme was made for everyday use
..improved compatibility (tested it on several computers and found no problems at all)

Rocketdock + icons not included ..

If you like the Close Button (x) to be closer at the edge, please use
Windows Close Button Resizer [link] and set it to 1.5 or 1.6

Best if used with LeftSider [link]
to move caption buttons on the left side


even newbies can install this..;)
Hope you enjoy these..

God Bless Deviantart.com!!
credits to giannisgx89 [link]


this file contains:
a Winrar-self extracting archive (.exe)
Visual Style + Start Orb + Icons + Cursors + Wallpaper + Uninstaller ..

FOR A BLACK VERSION of this: [link]
NEXT UPDATE: perfect caption buttons and some minor mods

Please comment if you like it ;) its better than fave

I tried to download this, but my Antivirus flagged it with this: Win32.Troj.kcloud.bm.gen I couldn't find much via search, so do you know what it is? False positive?

its definitely a false positive..

the exe file is just a Self-Extract WINRAR and having a .bat file to run after..(you can extract the contents of the exe using winrar to check for viruses)


you're good to go as long as your system is 32bit...:D

I thought it would be a false positive. Only my Kingsoft AV flagged it. MSE didn't, nor did 33 out of 36 AVs on virustotal.com. I just wanted to run it by you since no other commenter said they had the same issue. I didn't want to get a download that was somehow modified with a virus from a hacker or something. Anyway I downloaded it, and extracted the rar since I'm running 64x. The theme installed perfectly, and I love it. I also submitted the file to Kingsoft as a false positive. Thank you.

Hi Chris,

I installed the pack but i don't get a theme of Lion. Instead i can only see the Classic Windows 98 style on my computer. I tried going to Personalize and Change the theme but all i get is a Win 98 style Windows. Any pointers on where i might have gone wrong ?

Eagerly waiting for the black version. :)

I have a question though. I didn't install the theme with the automatic installer. I extracted it's contents and replaced the system files manually, not all the files though. The shell32.dll file in the themepack has version 6.1.7601.17514 while the shell32.dll present on my system is of version 6.1.7601.17859. Will it be safe to replace my shell32.dll with the one provided with the theme?

as far as i know, it is compatible as long as you are using Windows 7 x86 Service Pack,
probably yours is just an update,

but if you're really cautious, you will need to create a RESTORE point, and have an available Windows 7 DVD at hand..


i had turned my updates since last year..

::i have just uploaded the black version a few minutes ago.. ;)

Had no option other than being cautious. I messed up my system once. :roll:

Could you please tell me what exactly does shell32.dll change in the system? As far as I know, it changes something in the control panel, maybe the left panel. Anything else I'm missing? If it doesn't to anything major I might skip replacing this one.

Btw, the screenshot of the black version looks great. I'm willing to try it out soon. :)

yup, me too..
but if you have a boot cd/usb with you, its easy to fix. you can just restore a file if anything goes wrong, a simple copy and paste would do, even a simple restore or startup repair will do ;)

just create a system restore..and trust me..
tried this on different PC's..
(actually that's the hardest part on making this theme, even more complicated in my another theme called Dockbar7)

with the installer, it automatically creates a backup, so you dont need to worry about that
-------------------------------------------------------

for the shell32.dll it contains some of the very small icons..the one's when you are saving a file, then there's a different window that pops out.

i think even its corrupted windows will still be able to run, have tried it before ;)



but if still you're afraid, you dont need to install that..cause it would not really affect the oveall appearance of the theme, just when you're working on your PC that you'll notice ;)


but of course NO GUTS NO GLORY ..:D

this is a masterpiece but unfortunately is overshadowed by its lack of compatibility with x64
64x is more currently used ;)

but thank you very much

still, the Visual Style can be use for x64 ;) that would be enough for them..ahaha

They would just need to find some Lion icon packs, orbs and explorerframe..and that's all set ;)

Hi Chris,

Okay so I found the uninstaller.., a note of it's whereabouts would have been useful. Anyone else trying to find it..., you have to re-run the install 'exe' file and select undo changes.

Now the the bad bit.., the uninstaller does not do a thorough job! Half my icons returned to Windows 7 default, the other half were still blue custom icons.., NOT GOOD!!!!

A system restart did not solve this issue, neither did restoring my computer to the day before install. I also rebuilt the 'iconcache.db' which also had no effect! I have had to manually select the properties of every unchanged file and reset the icon back to it's default icon. User's wishing to try this theme should air on the side of caution, it may screw your machine up too!

However, negative comments asside, I do commend you for your efforts with making an installer but I would recommend working on your uninstaller so it works correctly.

Slinky

yes, i included a caution on the READ me file..


about the uninstaller, i've tried it to around 5 computers and have not found any problems at all. If you have any problems with that, try zooming in and out the icons (large icons to small icons). That way, the icon cache on your computer will be refreshed. a few reboot (in some computer) will also do the job. You can also use CCLEANER :)

backups are all located here
C:\windows\resources\themes\Mac7\Icons\backup

before even installing the theme, it should had created a backup and UNINSTALLER just restore the backup as it should be because its a command..


if you have any problems, feel free to post it here, i would be glad to answer :D
Thanks for trying my theme.
