Wow. Stunning theme. But why can't you change the border padding? I made mine smaller and nothing bad happened.
Also, when I first was switching between the different themes the window borders were all glass and I had to turn off desktop composition to make it look right. Not anymore though. I don't know why.
And something's up with the "imageres.dll" 64 and 32 bit files. I can't run Inkscape .47 with them on my system with this error.

But I remove them and I can run it. I'm sad because those files hold the wonderful song when you startup your computer
Besides that and the autohiding menu bar in explorer it's absolutely beautiful

about border padding : it 'destroyes' a little the osx symetry, in corners must be used different imges as they dont look as should and also do a very little streched [1 horizontal line if i remeber well] thats the reason i ask people not changing, not of afraid of any instability because of this.

about Inkscape .47 , it runs fine to my windows 7 32 bit, modified in mac os x style , operating system. have a look.


----------

perchaps needed to Uninstall it while you use the microsoft dll and reinstall it after you have added mines.

---
also for helping u i needed more informations, for example ,writte please if u use 32 or 64 system. have u replaced ALL system files? to 64 needed to be replaced to THE SYSTEM FILES OF YOUR SYSWOW64 FOLDER MUST BE REPLACED FROM THE 32 BIT FILES THAT I HAVE INCLUDED TO MY Macos X for Windows 7 - 32bit FROM FOLDER '32 bit Dll files'.

Any solution
do not delete the original dll, just rename it [after taken ownership] to shell32.old or shell32.bak etc now copy / paste my shell32.dll .
also do this first :

before replacing files go to Control pane [view by category] -->so Go to Control Panel\User Accounts and Family Safety\User Accounts and press the folder 'Change User Account Control Settings' set the slider to the next window Never Notify. restart. do all your changes in code that u want. then again go to Control Panel\User Accounts and Family Safety\User Accounts and press the folder 'Change User Account Control Settings' set the slider to the next window to Default or to whatever u like, then restart.

custom themes having Taskbar's height smaller than 24 pixels [i use to my theme a 22 pixel height taskbar, and setted to the top of desktop, similar to os x], when we log in doubles size.

This is a native windows 7 problem in code, for taskbars with smaller size than 24 pixels height.

For resizing i did, as i have written this : i must first deselect small icons, (deselect also Lock THE TASKBAR), so big size icons and taskbar appears.

Then i resize the big taskbar height, as small as possible. then i select small icons, and the taskbar becomes 22 pixels height.

The problem is this : every time i restart the taskbar becomes bigger size than 22 pixels so i have again to resize it.


So:

NEW METHOD FOR TASKBAR:
what you have to do is only 1 clik before shut down, or restart or log off your computer


----

How it works :

BEFORE shut down, or restart or log off , ---> SET aero theme.

[i will EXPLAIN after where you can set the aero style theme for ease access of it. instead of my solution you can set it everywhere you preffer or you right clik to desk top , personalize select aero.

to my method i setted to a toolbar of your taskbar for fast access by you]


Then copy to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup your favour custom theme.

so now when log in automatically the preffered theme will be in use. it works fine.

thats it.

--



so:
------------------------------------------------------

A ---. enabling quiq launch toolbar to the taskbar.
[u can set aero style theme in any toolbar of your taskbar, for example you can use 'links' toolbar]

1. Right clik to your windows taskbar. Deselect Lock the taskbar.

2. Again Right clik to your windows taskbar.

a.Then Right-click the taskbar -> Toolbars -> New toolbar

b. type the following into the "folder" field - "C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft

\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch", where username is your user name on your user account.

c. click 'Select folder'.

d. now you can rearrange the Quick Launch into it's classic position.

3. a. right-click the Quick Launch and uncheck "Show Text". right-click again to uncheck "Show

Title".

b. size the title-less and label-less Quick Launch area to your liking.

------

B---. RIGHT clik to your desktop, personalize, select aero theme, then change the desktop

background selecting forexample a mac style background wallpaper one as the 'DefaultDesktop'.

save changes.


then also select 'sounds', select mac osx, apply , ok, save the changes.

then, Save Theme with a name you preffer, for example Aero X.

THEN:

GO to C:/Users/Your User Name Here/AppData/Local/Microsoft/Windows/Themes

Drag the theme you just made it, to your quiq launch toolbar, in taskbar.
If you like you can right clik to the shortcut of the theme that has appeared after the drag to your quiq launch toolbar, in taskbar ,select properties, change icon, so select an icon you

preffer.

---------

C---. Go to C:/Users/Your User Name Here/AppData/Local/Microsoft/Windows/Themes or to

C:\Windows\Resources\Themes find your favourite 22 pixel taskbar's height mac style theme ,

copy it and paste it to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

D---. Before shut down, or restart or log off, go to your taskbar and select your aero style theme you have put there.

when log in , the mac style should be automatically will aplied it to your desktop.

thats it. [with only 1 clik before shut down, or restart or log off]

---
this is a solution for any custom theme with taskbar's [small icons] height size is smaller than 24 pixels, in windows 7.
(also added to 22 pixels height taskbar when restart becomes bigger ! also then can not be resized, must be first big(deselect small icons) for resizing! )
