0 Vista Transformation Pack 8.0.1

Vista Transformation Pack 6 was just released yesterday with all kinds of new goodies including 3rd-party applications for providing features like Taskbar thumbnail previews and a remarkable sidebar just like Vista’s. In case you are unfamiliar with this application I will forewarn you that there is a tendency for it not to uninstall all the way in case you decide that you don’t like it. I think most of the time the problem lies within replacing the icons with the old Windows XP ones, but I have personally never had issues.

With that being said I want to give credit to “Windows X” for making this release better than all previous versions. After installing the Vista Transformation Pack you’ll notice that all of the following have been changed to appear more like Vista:
  • Boot screen
  • Welcome Screen / Logon Screen
  • New msstyles files (visual styles)
  • New desktop and file icons
  • New toolbar icons
  • Progress Dialogs
  • Sounds scheme
  • System Tray icons
  • New Wallpapers
  • Windows Media Player Skins
Besides for bug fixes, here is a list of what’s new in version 8:

-Additional Vista related applications
  • Vista Sidebar
  • VisualTooltip (Taskbar thumbnail view and also have docking mode)
  • Styler with Kaye Irene’s Vista Perfection X4 Styler Toolbar
  • Start Orb (fix cutting edge start orb in msstyles)
  • Vista Live Messenger RC skin
-Applying Vista setup screen transformation in setup integration
-Browsable System files source for uninstallation so user can restore original system files from setup CD during uninstallation
-Display configuration for the best view of machine’s display
-Fixing file’s PE checksum after resource patching to keep files more secure
-Launch & Maintenance Center in transformation destination in case user already have transformed the system
-Partially x64 support for Vista visual stuff but not for system files (experimental)
-Option to reserved updated system files after uninstallation or not
-Skipping system file verification patch on setup integration
-Vista RTM system applications transformation:
  • Photo printing wizard
  • Remote Desktop Connection
  • Volume Control
  • Windows Task Manager
  • System Restore
  • Connection Manager
  • Windows Update Client
  • Media Center
Those of you attempting to upgrade from a previous version of Vista Transformation Pack shouldn’t have a problem, but if you do please mention it in the comments so others know what to expect. This application is so close to Vista that I bet you could trick 99% of the population that don’t have hands-on experience with Vista. So if you are looking to give your XP machine a fresh new look you should check out the new Vista Transformation Pack 8!
