Longhorn 4093

Post by jontyrocks3 »

Hey all,
A few questions!
1. Graphics drivers for ATI Radeon X1150 for LH 4093?
2. Enable Aero Glass
3. Enable DWM
4. Is DWM like Winflip etc?

Thanks for your time,
Jonty

1. Use 2004/05 drivers
2-3. You can enable aero taskbar and sidebar - look here. The full Aero Glass can't be just enabled. You will have to replace some files from 4074 and than activate it just like 4074
4. Effect that WinFlip emulates is just a part of DWM. Desktop Windows Manager is also Aero Taskbar and Sidebar, glass windows borders, aero stars, and many other effects.

Hello, thanks for all your fast replies.
FiFi, that page on enabling does not have instructions for 4093 build.
If possible could you explain fully?
Thanks,
Jonty

1) Open C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\
2) Copy the folder Jade and rename it to Aero
3) Open the new folder, and rename the jade.msstyles to aero.msstyles
4) Apply the new file as theme
5) You now can kill and re-run explorer.exe or reboot the system

Lol. Iwrote it on my second PC (Old keyboard). It meant:

you can have DWM, although it is not recommended to do that...
