Hi there, I'm new to this forum and so I hope I posted this topic into the right category.

First of all, I installed Longhorn 4074 on my 2nd PC and after installing many registry fixes it runs better and faster than Windows 2000 (Intel Celeron 1,2GHz; 384 MB RAM)

I replaced most of the icons in Shell32.dll and so on with those from Vista with the Resource Hacker.

But I wanted to know where are those stylish file copy/move animations from Vista? In the imageres.dll there are just those stupid Aero backgrounds and icons.
Also I wondered where the Dialogs are gone in Shell32.dll. The Resource Hacker doesn't display neither Dialogs from 4074 nor the Windows Banners. (I wanted to remove this "Code Name" tag :) )

Last question: Is there any possibility to run this great Windows Picture Viewer from 4074 under XP? Because the feature to fix exposure works fine... Yes, it isn't a replacement for a professional imaging tool but it'll do its job.

Why doesn't networking work properly? I see the PC in the Network Neighboorhood in XP but I can't access... Ping on the local IP 192.168.1.11 doen't work, but using the Internet connection to Ping it works. If I create an Apache server I can transfer files to the other PC but this is... stupid

Thanks for any related answers.

(If you wonder that I posted this topic at 5am, I'm from Germany, this should also explain my bad english 8-| )


EDIT: And where are the tray icons for the networking status and so on? In netshell.dll there are just the old ones from XP (or I didn't found them because Ressource Hacker refused to display some Icons with "Access Denied") and in systray.exe there are no icons.

Can you provide a screenshot of which animations you need, it may help to identify the parts you are wanting to port?

I wanted to know where those animations are, when copying/deleting/moving/etc files

That was my first guess, but when I open those files in the AVI sections, they're just empty magenta files...
Well, I'm going to try to export them but I don't think this will solve the problem

EDIT: Resource Heacker just exported me an 684 Byte magenta AVI file, no matter which of those files I export

But further down there it is said that the animation is an .avi which is hard to extract in a viewable format.

With the release of Vista, Microsoft has developed a new method of animation in explorer instead of AVIs (Video Clip)

32-bit .avi ???
this tutorial on joejoe says how to change background of animation so that means that .avi file must be a 32-bit, i assume, but that is just me i never tried that tutorial

i'm sorry, but why would you like to make 4074 longhorn look like vista?
4074's looks are part of its charm...

I just want the cool things from Vista...

I'm currently porting things from 4093 to 4074.
But I don't think I succeed in copying the explorer to 4074. Because I like the way the shut down question is done. ("Windows will shut down in 10 seconds....") ;)
