Hey all, Ive been playing around with some themes for Windows XP, particuarly Longhorn replicas.

http://www.soft32.com/download_3720.html is a pretty complete transformation package (my favorite, I think). This was written by a guy from Taiwan, so the English on the instructions isnt the best. I used the uxtheme multipatcher first, instructions and link given here: http://www.tweakguides.com/Vista_Theme.html .

When you use the multipatcher pick the install that doesnt change system files and itll work fine. Also on the previous link is another Longhorn replica "Longhorn 5203" which is pretty good also. Follow instructions carefully and you shouldnt have any problems installing.

The only problem I had with "Longhorn 5203" was I had to launch it from my windows\resources\themes folder, it didnt show up in my appearance settings tab. This may have been a faulty install on my part. I got it to work so I didnt fool with it anymore.

Edit: apparantly Koroush Ghazi, owner of the Tweak Guides site is having problems with Microsofts lawyers, as detailed on his home page. If the link for the uxtheme multipatcher goes down, I have copied it and can pm it to anyone interested.
