***June 20, 2010 update***
This update was the result of the requests of many people for a white icon version of the system tray. There is now the option for you to choose between the standard OS X tray with black icons or the white icon version if you use a darker OS X theme. Enjoy the new addition, you asked for it!***
Welcome! I decided that its time to compile all of the most useful FREE Leopard resources on one page so that all Windows XP users can enjoy the look of Leopard quickly and easily. This is the final version of this pack. Any updates from here on out (if there are any) will be for bugs only, if there are any.
-xpsp2res.dll added for wireless system tray icons
-safely remove hardware icon changed
-Black and white icon versions of the system tray added
-stobject.dll and netshell.dll updated.
-Now added a stobject.dll and netshell.dll to the download so you can emulate the OS X system tray with fewer applications!
-Added a DisableRollback registry edit to the download (prevents windows from reverting the shell32.dll file to its normal state) If you experience issues with a reoccuring autorun update, see this link for assistance [link]
-New log out icon (in log off windows dialog) and better themeui/shell32 sidebar bitmaps.
-Added a smart folder icon for findexer sidebar.
-Added a mydocs.dll and xpsp1res.dll.
-Added Mac Sounds! Tweaked msgina.dll and shell32.dll so they have matching logout/shutdown dialogs and better, more leopard-feeling buttons.
-Tweaked some more bitmaps for accuracy and consistency.
-Added an all new msgina.dll so the log off and shutdown dialogs have a Mac feel.
-Completely new explorer, with all new icons and start menu tooltip! My apologies for the first explorer... it was totally inaccurate, I should not have included it.
-Tweaked themeui with some new bitmaps.
Last update issued: May 16, 2009
The download on this page contains a shell32.dll, themeui.dll, msgina.dll, mydocs.dll, xpsp1res.dll, xpsp2res.dll, explorer.exe, stobject.dll, netshell.dll, icon refresh utility, registry keys (these are all for XP only!), Desktop4ever mod, Leopard sounds, and all the bitmaps I used to create or modify the previous items. Download them, and using the read me file, install those files on your system. Full directions are provided with the download. You can also use the bitmaps and the screenshot provided on this page to help guide you.
