I really don't enjoy in transform my OS in something else, if I want to experience the real deal I prefer the original experience, samething with the "Flyakite OS X Transformation pack", I used this last application just to experiment and the only thing that do to your sytem is slow down and make all applications run slow.

Did anyone get this to actually do anything?

I followed the instructions exactly, set a System Restore point, booted to Safe Mode, completed the install, rebooted once done, and then... nothing!

I went into the Display Properties, no Vista themes to pick, nothing new in the Appearance tab either.

There were only 2 things I noticed: (1) A Visual ToolTip icon in the Notification Area and (2) a different icon for the C Drive. Everything else is XP style. I also tried doing a 'Repair' using the Change/Remove button in Add/Remove Programs.

Anyone else experience this?

This transformation pack has ruined a lot of peoples computers, make sure you backup stuff before you install, or create a restore point.

Don't worry, if you want to uninstall, copy folder in \windows\system32\VI_Trans and save different name, these are the files saved during install.

No matter how much Windows X claims that his transformation packs patch over Windows' system files smoothly, there is always a problem, so when it comes to uninstalling, something goes wrong. And because we're talking about the core elements of Explorer messing up, problems often occur. Sometimes it can be something small, like a graphical glitch that you can't fix, or something major, like the whole OS breaking.

-That is right, before you install VIsta Transformation Pack 6 i'd say you save a point for system restore unless you fully understand what is going on you don't have to, so far I installed it without making a system restore point and everything seems fine.

I don't really understand this. So we're supposed to copy that folder, rename it and do what with it?
