Hello, how do you get the date AND the time on your bottom right when your taskbar is that slim? I can only get the time there. :( I have to choose the thick version of the taskbar on windows settings to get the date as well, but I want to keep it slim.

Nice theme, but sadly can't use.

Start orb doesn't change on mine, taskbar seems to be the old one still.
Also don't like how the minimize and maximize buttons are hidden.

Loving these blast from the past ports. Glad to see one of lassekongo's xp stuff on win7.

Quick question. When you are porting from xp to 7 in Stylebuilder debug mode, I know that you first port from XP to Vista (Vista mode) and then from Vista to 7 (7 mode). All the elements show up in Windows Basic theme. Do you pretty much have to manually transfer all the elements from that point to the Aero portions? Whenever I hit the test button it forces windows into basic mode. Is that normal?

I do it completley manual from the start.  no StyleBulder importing. :)

Some day I hope to reach a small fraction of what you know how to do in Stylebuilder. I've just started to use Stylebuilder and luckily have been able to remix/refine elements of existing themes. Porting an entire msstyle is still quite daunting so my hats off to you!

Very cool vs, Jamie----=)

In fact, after the latest Windows 8.1 update (KB2919355) totally FUBAR'd my slick setup that I worked so hard on ----flashing black screen, and yes I had updated graphics drivers, disabled my a.v., tried several methods to install this stupid update successfully---I'm back on 7 for a while it looks like.

So---maybe I'll give Lakrits a spin after I finish setting-up and patching!

Not sure if you've discovered this little tidbit yet, but the right-click function in the Windows 8.1 start-screen has changed (for un-pinning, re-sizing tiles, etc.)....No longer does the bar at the bottom of the screen pop up; now it's a small context-menu next to whatever tile you right-click. Well, here's the catch: it seems that 3rd-party themes cause that right-click action to not function. At least it doesn't with the Work vs anyway. Haven't tried any other vs yet. I hope you'll investigate it, Jamie, and update your visual styles with a fix? Especially the Work one, as it's really the ONLY one on the planet that I personally want to use on this os. Please? Pretty please?

Everything else seems to work ok with the new ui changes in the update, except that right-click action in the start-screen and All Apps interface. OldNewExplorer seems to work fine. With the addition of min and close buttons at the tops of metro-apps they've added, there's no need for Close Threshold now, so I haven't installed it.

Still slowly/carefully installing stuff, checking out ui functionality, restarting each time....trying to get a fix on what causes the black-screen failure to boot issue with my pc. I'm praying that after I get everything set-up (except the vs) I'll not experience it again.

Yeah I'm aware of the new feature and the bug.  Not sure if there's going to be a new way to fix this via StyleBuilder or not.  I'll be sure to investigate. :)

Good deal. Then, if someone manages to work around that situation, what's freaking NEXT?!

I like 8.1 a whole lot, hate the thought of having to use 7 after being on 8 for so long....But damn, how much does MS think the customer will put up with?

I would highly recommend using something like acronis trueimage to backup your ideal setups. You could also use VHD boots since that actually comes with Win7 Ultimate onward if you don't want to buy software or torrent search for it :P. Nothing worse than having your setup destroyed due to update changes...

:icony-n-1-f:
Y-N-1-F Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2014
Oh I have Acronis---and a full-disk backup of my favorite setup, pre-updates. I agree it's a must, and I've always preferred True Image.
But, since the latest update, the KB2919355 one, is a must I just have to find a way to customize with it installed. As soon as I do, then
I'll make a backup of THAT configuration.

Well, I'm answering this from a fresh install---again---of 8.1. Just woke up. Trying again. This time without installing anything until ALL UPDATES are installed. Then I'll do everything I normally do---one thing at a time---and try to figure out what causes the issue. I almost hate Microsoft these days! They can't leave well-enough alone can they; always freaking messing around with the codes and ui. 8.1 was fine as it was...now they have to "tweak" around with it even more, throwing a monkey wrench into people's setups, AGAIN. A Windows computer can't 'just work' these days. You have to be a freaking master techie to deal with what MS keeps throwing at you.
