Good Morning to all.
I'm proud to announce the KDE Vista Patcher.
It is in first beta stages but it is promising.
Credits should go to XPero for his vize code and off cource to oxygen team for the icons.
Here is a first screenshot, more are about to come and soon i will upload the first beta version.


[b]KDE Vista Patcher[/b]
KDE Vista Patcher is a project based in the fantastic code wonder or XPero, The Vize Project.
It's main goal is to bring the view and feel or KDE 4 GUI to Windows Vista Users.
The final Version 1.0 is intended to bring you the full experience of KDE 4 right on top of Windows Aero.
Below are some key steps in the development process.


Version 0.1 Edited by Doomangel

Just thinking or resource usage, will this use Aero as much as possible or will it try to implement Plasma and KDE4's graphical framework on top of Aero?

will replace resources inside dll's and add walls, theme and some other stuff similar to KDE4. The KDE team is working on KDE 4 project running natively in windows. I believe there is a lot of work to be done to have plasma running properly in windows. This pack is trying to make vista look like kde 4, but still Aero is far from the new KDE4 experience.

As I said above: That page requires people to register to view screenshots.

This requires too much commitment from a casual interested user to just see what people are talking about.

When patching shell32.dll and using creatives cmss for surround sound, cmss stops working. When replacing the back up of shell32.dll cmss works.

Something being patched in shell32.dll is causing creative cmss to stop working.

also had this with
vize and tize

something worth looking into, since i have no idea what could be causing it.
