XP-Leopard Resource Page FINAL by asilaydyingdl XP-Leopard Resource Page FINAL by asilaydyingdl
I am no longer supporting this project. If you are interested in continuing the project, please see my journal for my project policies!

***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.

Complete Changelog:
-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
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Download information:

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.

Next, I will list resources that will help you achieve the look of Mac OS X Leopard on your system. Be sure to follow the instructions the authors provide with these items, and all will go well with you and will go quickly. Let me know if any links are broken.

***I would recommend a minimum of 512 MB of RAM for anyone planning to use the freeware applications below. I heard a report of these apps working decently down to 256 MB, however.***

You do not need to do nothing involving the registry except what the downloads instruct you to do. As always, modifying the registry can be dangerous if done incorrectly so modify it at your own risk. You need to disable Windows File Protection and patch your uxtheme.dll before you can use this. The directions are provided in the description and the download.

No, because not everyone wants everything. Plus the download file would be huge.

Thanks! I'm not doing anything with it anymore since 7 is my primary OS and my XP is only for working on other PCs. I also have Vista 64 bit. I get a 64 bit version every other OS that way I'm always able to run anything, but don't have to fork out a butt-ton of money every time Windows launches a new OS lol.

I really can't do much for you honestly, I don't even run this setup anymore. The only possible way I could give you some ideas would be to see a screenshot of the problem. Everything you need to know should be available in tutorials on DA though. If you are referring to making your left sidebar in your explorer windows look macish, you need to download findexer and install it first, then the icon sets so you can change the icons to the mac icons. There are links to icon sets and findexer and there are some available in my download also. If you can't download findexer from the host, google search for it. Goodluck.

I believe you have to enable it, sort of like when you customize your explorer's menus or your internet browsers menus. Try right clicking on your command bar (the bar below the address bar in your explorer windows) and see if findexer is in the list. If so, select it so it's checked. It should launch. If that doesn't work, try googling your problem.

Well, try the nightly build section. If that doesn't work, try browsing for findexer on the a file hosting site. Someone will have it posted.

I've never worked with chrome. I changed the side panel of my Explorer windows using Findexer. The link is in the description. If not, google "Findexer Tom's Effect" and it will come up.

Sounds like you either deleted something in the process, or the Windows File Protection isn't shut off properly. Make sure that WFP is properly disabled and try again. That's all can suggest.
