Ambient Vista Port by Satukoro Ambient Vista Port by Satukoro
Original XP: [link]
Thanks to ~tornado5 for submitting such great art =D
-
Included:
+ Ambient Visual Style
+ Ambient Explorer.exe

Explorer.exe is required for the user picture border and the logoff buttons.
-
Instructions for explorer.exe: *Note! Read ALL steps before you attempt.*

1: Download TakeControlb2.zip and extract.

2: Open the program and select 'Add'. Navigate to 'C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe' and then select 'Take Control'. It will process the file.

3: Open up explorer (:windows:+E) and navigate to 'C:\WINDOWS\'. Find explorer.exe and rename it to 'explorer.exe.bak' (or something that represents a backup file. don't worry, your original explorer hasn't been altered) and copy+paste the 'explorer.exe' included in this .zip

4: Hit Ctrl+Shift+Esc to open up the Task Manager. Under the processes tab, right click 'explorer.exe' and click end process.

5: While still in Task Manager, click 'File' > 'New Task (Run...)' and in the box, type 'explorer'.

Any problems, post.

One of the best themes for XP and Vista.

Does this also works with Win7?

this creator will have to port it to 7 as the theme format is different.

Oh wow, this is amazing! My main PC is still using XP Pro because I'm old and hate change, luckily Ambient at least gives me something nice to look at when I'm using it. Ambient is like good food for the eyes for me, it's perfect - so restful, complete and harmonious. Unfortunately my laptop came with Vista and I can't be bothered down(UP!)-grading it to XP, or up(meh)-grading it to Windows 7 so I'm stuck with ... the default visual style Aero, my visual nemesis - I DESPISE IT!!! I'll leave it at that because I could write an essay about horrible I think it is - but I want to thank you for both the actual port and also the extra work you put in to make sure it all worked properly - your effort has given me enormous pleasure, er ... anyway, I keep looking at my laptop, I've hardly used it since I bought it, that might change now it's looking awesome ... Thanks again!

I had a similar problem because I needed a 32bit XP but with 4GB RAM. I found Windows 2003 Server Edition. Its just a better XP, fully compatible. 32bit with full 4GB RAM.

Hm, I'm only finding how to install it like how I did. Nothing about basic. What do you use? I'll give that a go.
