Windows 7 Classic for XP by DopeySneezy Windows 7 Classic for XP by DopeySneezy
Windows 7 Classic Edition for XP SP3

Standard Windows 7 RC1 Light Blue Theme.

UPDATED System Files! (If you have downloaded and installed my previous versions of Shell.dll and Sysdm.cpl, this pack will replace them.) If you haven't, these files will replace your existing ones.

Download contains:
Explorer.exe (an all new Windows Explorer with 7 style bitmaps and icons)
MyDocs.dll
Shell32.dll
Msgina.dll
Mmsys.cpl
Themeui.dll
Sysdm.cpl
Xpsp1res.dll
Logonui.exe
An optional Recycle Bin entry (just click and follow directions.)
Replacer Utility
Refresh utility.

Directions: Use the enclosed Replacer utility to put Logonui.exe, MyDocs.dll, Shell32.dll, Themeui.dll, Msgina.dll, Xpsp1res.dll, Sysdm.cpl and Mmsys.cpl into your Windows/System32 directory.
IMPORTANT! Place Explorer.exe in the WINDOWS main directory.
Restart Windows.
Click on (emptyrecyclebin.reg) if you want to add that to your context menu.
Note: It's always a good idea to back up system files you're replacing. If you don't notice a change in system icons after restarting Windows, use the enclosed refresh utility.

Special thanks to:
CoLnE (~alkhan) [link] for his Windows 7 Base Icons
Peter Rollar [link] for his Log On template
Desktop Squared at [link] for bitmaps and advice.
Microsoft and Google Image Search for the sidepanel bitmaps

Quite a few people have requested this particular Trans-Pack in emails and dA notes. I hope it's of some use.

If you followed the installation instructions included with your download, Brandon, it should be quite easy.

1. Go to your C:\Windows directory and find the file called explorer.backup.

2.Copy the file explorer.backup to your desktop.

3. Change the name of the file 'explorer.backup' to explorer.exe.

4. Using the Replacer utility that comes with this pack, copy the new explorer.exe to your C:\WINDOWS directory, and restart your machine.

5. This will get your PC back to the XP look, which is presumably what you want.

Hope that helps. :D

Yeah, I get that bug once in awhile too. I guess the only perfect Windows 7 pack is, well...Windows 7. But it's not out on the market yet. Just Betas and RCs.

Hey, nice work! The bitmaps are much improved over your previous versions. Check out my PDA desktop [link] Let me know what you think.

:icondopeysneezy:
DopeySneezy Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2009
I wonder if you mean that the bitmaps are more to your liking, Dustin, since they ape the windows 7 beta ones more closely? I find them generic and boring. If we upgrade the PCs on our household LAN from Vista to Windows 7 it will be because of winmain technology, new features and improved functionality, not because of the pastel quasi-XP GUI.

No, seriously, the quality of the images is better... poor quality makes them look generic, at least in my mind. Nice work.

Thank you Gamer. :) But much of it is based on work done by others before me, some of it going back years. System modders like Kampongboy, Desktop Squared, Picassa243 and fediaFedia. I would never have known about Styler toolbar, Findexer and Qt TabBar if it weren't for deviants who "hang out" in Skins and Themes/ Windows Utilities/ Miscellaneous. All credit to my teachers.

OK. This is for AJ-XDX.

The things you mentioned, like the start menu though you see them in my screenshots, are not in the download pack, because they belong to what are known as 'Msstyles" or "shell styles". DeviantART has a whole section devoted exclusively to them right here: [link] and they are free.

For large icons in your taskbar, download read and apply the VERY SIMPLE 4 steps right here:
[link]

For Windows Transparencies, go here and carefully read the artist's comments, then download the freeware apps: [link]

If you wonder why I don't include these small freeware apps in my downloads, it's because they are not properly my programs. All I can do is post links to them.

Hope this helps.
