Hello guys!
I made a Windows XP Logon based on Windows 2008 Server Logon Screen.

Windows Fundamentals for Legacy PCs Version is available.
Windows XP Version is available.
Windows Vista Version is available.

(These versions are all for Windows XP, it's the bmp in the bottom that is changed. Windows XP Version has the bitmap saying "Windows XP" as on the picture, and so on...)

That looks awesome. I prefer this one WAY over the default one Vista has.

Whenever i replace the file in c:\windows\system32, windows automatically replaces it with the logoui.exe. I realise I'm probably making a nooby mistake, any help?

Thanks

Replace it, then press the reset button on your computer

Don't shutdown normally. That worked for me.

Did anyone border to try the SAFE MODE of Windows, before GUI boot press F8.

Then the file protection is disabled and you can replace anyfile (as long as its valid).

Or just replace the file in system32\dllcache first, then in system32.
After this you should get a system file protection message, click on cancel,
and make sure that there is no Windows XP cd-rom in your drive ;)

Yes, check that the file is not in dllcache and/or Windows\ServicePackFiles\i386 and/or C:\i386 first, then replace the actual file.

or you can use bartpe to replace the file as long as the drive is accessible by everyone (for those who dont care/dislike ntfs security)

Thanks that worked.

I love this logon, much better than standard XP. Shame it doesnt use your actual user picture though.

EDIT - Now that Ive restarted windows its changed back again. :(

Don't replace the Logonui.exe in your Windows\System32 folder. Just copy the EXE to the folder with a different name, then go into the registry, go to HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon and change the UIHost value to the name of the EXE. Changes take effect immediately.

BTW: It looks nice. :D

Hey, it looks cool!
marxo, I don't really like your ideas all the time, but this logon rocked on Vista, and I think it'll rock just as much on XP, maybe even more!

Thanks in advance! Will test this awesome thingie later.

Try it.
If your logonui.exe is corrupted, Windows will use the classic & old login.

Maybe port the code thats in the .exe to the loginui from XP and not the .exe it self?

(may sound stupid, but then you can get the clock, i think), its a neat feature.

If this Longhorn build is already using those MUI-files, try adding all the MUI-Strings (Dialogs, String Table, Message Table) to the EXE using Resource Hacker or try copying the MUI file in the system32 folder or the same folder structure (mui\fallback\......)

As far as I remember, Longhorn never had a logonui.exe.mui

And many of the features are implemented using calls from system files that don't exist in XP iirc.
