I have a Windows Vista Version that has completely nothing on it. I did this with vLite so my old 15GiG PC is a ble to use it. Now I just need these:

Windows Vista Original Theme
Windows Aero® Original Theme
Windows Sidebar Folder and Instruction on how to get it to load at start-up
Patch to force Aero
Windows Vista Activation Crack/Patch

And you can't force Aero unless you have a DX9 graphics card, it's impossible as it needs the hardware to be able to do it.

Why not extract them from your original Vista disc that you used to make the vLite copy?

You shouldn't be using vista if it takes too much space on your hard drive.
You can't install it even if we give you the installation disc and yes it is illegal and against the rules of this forum to distrubite any code from a retail version of anything that have an user agreement that disallow it.

In plain english it means: We can't rip the theme files and give it to you, it is illegal and against the law

PS: go get yourself a bigger hdd like now, cause that 15GB is really small!

Actually, as far as I know, distributing the files is not illegal, just as long as they're not used illegally. It's the keys that you're not to give out/share/request - It's like making backups, you can do it, just so long as you don't sell them or install on loads of machnes.

I do not need a key or anything. I have a Vista version that is legal, activated, and I have the key. The only problem is that it's 350MBs. There is nothing on it! I just need the themes and sidebar to make it look like the actual Vista. I do not need this for illegal purposes.

If you already have a legit Vista you already have access to all the things you requested.

Regardless, the themes, sidebar components etc are still considered "warez", and requesting such is prohibited on this forum. Those components are an integral part of Vista, thus covered by the license and copyright.

I suggest you look for other sources to get your components. A tip is to install Vista in VMWare or VPC and extract what you need there. But do not request those items here.

(VirtualPC is freeware from Microsoft, get it there. VMWare is avaliable as an evaluation license, you can download and use it during the trial period.)
