after 3/4 hours of work have replace most of the neptune/2k icons with better ones

Image

Image


im not trying to turn neptune into vista .. i just like the style, the vista look is thanks to a program called Truetransparency (not made by me)

the wireless program is a reshacked version of a broadcom wireless manager program , bundled with my Belkin wifi card

Edit: i know this is a bump but it didnt deserve a new topic for this
Eedit 2: i just realise i spelt the topic title wrong , could a mod change it ?

That "about" box you're showing is the "about notepad" box,
I meant the "about internet explorer" box, from the help\about link within internet explorer.
Just curious about the internet explorer build number after your transparency tweak.
Thanks.

It would be really nice if someone would test the Daedalus - Alpha Blended Icon Enabler for NT/2000 on Windows Neptune to try and enable 32-bit icons.

Great job dans34!

IE6? or IE5.5, with shdoclc.dll, shdocvw.dll and whatnot fileversion showing 6.0.2600.0000, indicating the file was pulled from a non serviced pack XP.
probably used by the truetransparency program.
That was the reason I asked to see the IE version in the above post of mine.

AFAIK , Truetransparency hast updated any system files it only hooks into the GDI

the IE version could be because i tried to upgrade to 6 and it failed half way though ( but not matter , i dont use IE anyway)

i tested http://www.winprj.net/board/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=399 , and couldnt get it to work
