Forum rules


Please read the following rules before posting a download request in this area:

1. Don't post a request if you have under 10 posts as stated on the front page. If you do anyway, it will be deleted without further notice. This also applies to other members: If you see a request by someone with less than 10 posts and it hasn't been deleted yet, please don't reply to it.
2. Don't request for warez or any copyrighted software. Only betas (no matter how old or new) and finals of operating systems and applications that are at least 10 years old and therefore classified as abandonware are allowed to be uploaded to and shared on the BetaArchive FTP server.
3. If you have your own FTP server where you'd like other members to upload what you're looking for to, please don't post its login details in any open forum as that will probably lead to abuse. Post the login details in the Private Servers section instead.
4. Check that we don't already have the file on our FTP servers. If you don't have access to the FTP servers then ask someone who has (a moderator for example).

I was digging thru some old archives, and came across the bluePlex patches for Longhorn 3718. Would anyone want me to upload? I didn't know if anyone would like this or not so I am asking.
Some screenshots included with it:

WOW, I remember testing this a long time ago. Its been almost 3 or 4 years, never gets old! Sadly like all Longhorn projects this was never completed. Although this was the best fix for 3718. I even see my old screen name on one of the screenshots. :cool:

there were actually four themes:

bluePlex, which was the only one ready for the release that I made.

a greenPlex that was a colour-shifted bluePlex, which was readied for Beta 1, along with a minor update to bluePlex.

a greenPlex that was a theme in it's own right, which is the one seen in all greenPlex screenshots, though this never got very advanced.

"alphaPlex" - which was Stass's (from Joejoe) remixed blue plex theme for 3718, which he offered to the protoPlex project and was integrated ready for a beta 1 release.

Frankly, the beta 1 release was quite ready, it's just our install-creater at the time disappeared, and it never really regained the momentum that it lost, and then the other themer besides me left and I was uninterested in pushing it along myself.
protoPlex was always about more than just themes though, it targetted a number of functionality changes. Not least the inclusion of server and client components, including both Media Center and Tablet components. We also intended to make it more prepared for modern software, and spent ages trying to perfect .NET 2.0 on 3718, something which I have since perfected. (I actually perfected it at the time, then promptly forgot how I did it, meaning we had to start all over again >_<)

Currently uploading. It will be done soon (the ISO is 79.23MB so it will take a few minutes).

EDIT: Here you go:

I'm interested to know who packed it in that ISO that's been circulating, I know we just released it as a single EXE.

Here's some "Beta 1" bluePlex Screenshots I dug up.

Well, the ISO has DX9c for Longhorn, and some other customization things.

Thanks for the bluePlex style, DBlake. Now let me get this straight... this patch only works on... Longhorn 3xxx right or does it work on Windows XP RTM? Sorry if this is a stupid question, I'm a little bit confused.

Edit: Nevermind, I read the .txt files on the ISO. But can this patch work with other 3xxx Longhorn builds?

Follow this instructions for making Longhorn appear as Windows XP:
http://www.betaarchive.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=27164
This happens because WMP10 is WHQL'd for 5.1.2600 and longhorn is 6.0.3718
If you still can't install it,download WMP10 from Microsoft website:
