After installation I can't seem to find the wallpapers anywhere. Where are they stored?

They do not show up in that list. If they did, I wouldn't have asked. Anyhow, I found them myself. They were installed to C:\Windows\Web\Wallpaper.

That's odd, since Display Properties gets its list from x:\windows\web\wallpaper. I'm not sure why it's not working for you, sry.

Very nice, impressive. The installer works perfectly, without overtiring existing files. The sound scheme is bound to fool real users... :P

Nice job with the desktop wallpapers too; I prefer the aurora wallpapers personally. The fact that they install with theme files really makes it easier to switch between the themes.

I congratulate you.

Wow! I'm downloading this, but I don't have the program to un-zip the .rar

I've been looking for a set of Vista stuff for ages, and I'd say that this selection of wallpapers, the mouse icons and the noise will suffice greatly.

I think cursors in this pack are the best on the net for XP because they are the only that works with "enable shadow" option :)

I just found two cursors missing in the pack, the precision and text selection, all others are present... and they are easly detectable because style doesn't match :(

I tried to use them directly from my Vista installation but they don't work with shadows... if you want I can send them to you (or give a download link) so you can fix shadow issue and include in your pack :D

Thanks in advance

Little addiction:

alternative selection is missing as well (there is some kind of up arrow instead but it doesn't match with the cursor description) :( so missing cursors are 3

Very good sound scheme !
But you should change some of the sound:
1. Asterisk
2. Default Beep
3. Remove: Minimize, Restore Up/Down and etc. sound like Vista RTM ;)

Cursors: Weak :( ---> [link]
Change it !

Wallpapers: ...OK !

I'll wait for your next pack ;)

PJayZzz: I looked at the sounds and remembered why I configured them that way. Using the left over sound for system question gave people and myself heart attacks, so I substituted it with the asterisk sound after receiving much feedback. Some of the other arrangements are adjusted as well. People seem to like this arrangement so I left it as it is. Anyway, the pack is not a 1:1 replicate but one that is more aesthetically pleasing by preference. Just like the cursors, I improved it to taste. Maybe it's just not for everyone, but there won't be an update. :)

PJayZzz: I'll take a look at the sounds within these few days.

Cursors wise, you should read comments posted and you'll know why people prefer mine to the others. Others don't work in XP with pointer shadows and unavailable cursor is opaque. Why would I bother to fix mine if I just wanted to use other people's defective ones like the one you posted?

I've always loved the Aero cursors and sounds, but was disappointed to find that every set I came across on the internet did not have a transparent 'unavailable' cursor; small, but very annoying. Thank you for not overlooking this. Also, I noticed that the 'unavailable' cursor is cleanly cut and does not show jagged edges, etc. This basic pack covers everything I wanted without fundamentally altering Windows XP, like the Vista Transformation Pack. I have a pretty powerful computer, but I'm hesitant to try the transformation pack due to the transparency effects (would slow me down), etc. and the altering of system files. I also use your Royale Noir theme. Thanks!

Did you download the correct installer package? There's 32bit and 64bit. If your download gets corrupted, there's also some fast mirrors in the forum link above to try.

Looks great. 2 questions, though. Can I uninstall this afterwards if I need to? Also, does this install for all profiles on the PC or just the current one?
Reply
:iconoddbasket:
oddbasket Featured By Owner May 13, 2007   Interface Designer
1. Uninstallable from shortcut or 'Add/Remove Programs', complete uninstallation, no files/folders/registry traces left behind.

2. Installs only for current user profile. Lots of people get pissed easily otherwise...

Hi, I apologize for that. Seems like I botched up in a previous update I made to fix an issue for a particular user.
It should be fixed now, go ahead and try it. I've updated a few sounds in the scheme as well. :)
