Hi Guys'n'girls,

As some know, my own "personal" laptop, runs Longhorn 4074, and have been running that for quite some time.

Anyway, i got the idea that i wanted to create a couple of new themes for it.

Can anyone suggest a good theme/style editor ?

I have tried StyleBuilder, but that dosent work as expected, offcourse "RedHacker" works, but its a clumpsy tool to use for it.

so.. any good suggestions ?

Because Windows Longhorn was in beta. There weren't created any programs for it because it might not work in further builds or the final (RTM). So cause of that reason there weren't created applications for it.

Yeh, you're stuck with Reshacker, PE Explorer, ResEdit, XN Resource Editor, etc.

Much of the Longhorn Reloaded 'themes' demoed didn't actually exist. I have the Onyx theme from the LHR project, and it's quarter done at best, despite them showing almost complete themes.

As for the format of the resources - Most are still XP-style BMPs, but the 'New' Taskbar (Enabled as part of the sidebar in 4074), Sidebar and Aero use Transparent PNGs.

Contact Bryant over at AeroXP, he made quite a few themes for 4074 back in the day (GCNaddict I think his old nick was), so he can probably point you in the right direction.
