you just need to run it on compatible mode "windows xp" On installer

it will work on longhorn 4074 too i think you will just need to disable the sidebar
and the desktop manager sidebar tile has no porblem about windowblinds

but it has some issue the button down on taskbar is black yo fix it just disable the sidebar See it on screen shot.
the x button on search is black
background wallpaper don't works

I don't understand the point. You want to use WB? Might as well use it on a stable and secure platform such as XP or Vista.

The only thing left about Longhorn is how it looks, and you remove that and call it a success?

im not hurting longhorn style/looks as i said i dont have an dwm/dce to activate "DWM or DCE" compatible video card (not on longhorn 3683)

and..
im just saying that wb 6 works on longhorn since many people dont try or dont have a time to install it on longhorn builds or maybe their os would screw up ,some people want transparent border,it is alternate as theme cuz there is no available theme on longhorn if you want to make your longhorn theme to vista style like that.

and again just saying that Windows blinds 6 Works on Windows OS Beta WOW!!!

You can force it in the early builds.

The beauty of Longhorn (especially the late 40XX builds) is how well thought out the UI is, especially the non-Aero UI.
You've actually made it look like Xp with a dodgy sidebar...

Nice find by you. But i think nobody will benefit from it. Because nobody uses Longhorn as a main OS. Its not a good OS. The thing which people like very much in Longhron is it's appearance. Nothing else except this and WinFS, maybe. If we use WindowBlinds, Longhorn is just XP with a theme and a sidebar and just some buggy new features, nothing more

Again, I congratulate you for your find, because I didn't know that
