    Yup! Unlike v6.0 & v7.0, this time you no need to buy WindowsBlinds to transform windows into Aero Glass effect. And it's also use 3DFlip (Rendered by WinFlip) featured that enable your windows flip on each others like real Vista effect! http://www.windowsxlive.net/screenshots/vtp/vtp8_flip.jpg

    They (Windowsxlive team) also fix some minor bug on previous version. Great Job!

    Yeah, anyone who has WinXP and wants the look and feel of Vista without the so called Bloatedness should definatly install this. Its really really good.

    Just for kicks I tried it out. It gave me an "Unsupported OS detected" error when running the exe. I'm on 64-bit Vista Business.

    The idea of this program is to make XP look like Vista and i would of thought vista does look like vista in the 1st place.

    I'm aware of that. I knew it probably wouldn't work.. I just tried it for the hell of it. Would of been a good laugh if it did install and change the skin.

    P.S. Thanks for the thanks :)

    I've seen people using this mostly on machines that cant run vista - and it makes their slow machines even slower, so i really dont get it...

    Just install it in the same way you install other software. Just tick & click 'next'. Leave as

    the default setting. Make sure you have enough memory(RAM)~512MB or more .

    Any processor, speed about 2.0Ghz or more(dual core is better) and any directx8 or later

    version of supported video card (Intel,ATI, or nVidia).




    Before installing this software, they recommended you to install

    Windows service pack, IE7 & WM Player 11. During the installation, it will ask Where do you

    want to apply Vista UI transformation to? You need choose the first choice. Because when

    you didn't want this software anymore, you be able to revert back windows system files

    back to the original ones. But if you choose the choice 2nd you can't undo it back.





    Then, choose the easy way to install it (choose Express Mode). Then it will ask the

    component you want to install, tick all options if you want like a 'real vista transformation'.

    On the last page click transform button and if they asked for restarting PC, do so.

    You mean you can't run the installer? maybe the installer corrupted when downloaded. what size of the downloaded file? the size should be 27.55MB.

    Actually, this version can run independently without WindowsBlind. You need WindowsBlind when you want Aero Glass effect like original Vista but only in older version of this software (like v6.0 & v7.0). WindowsBlind is not freeware.
