  1. Quick question:

    Program has worked great for me, no issues, nice eye candy. I installed it in my laptop and my desktop as well. In my laptop the close/minimize/max buttons are in the right hand side, which really works for me.. but in my desktop those buttons switched to the left hand side which do NOT work for my purposes.

    Is there a way to move the close/minimize/max buttons back to the right hand side?

    Thanks in advance

  4. You guys want know how i install vistaOSX v4?

    Before i install vistaOSX v4.The things that i do are :-

    No1.
    I un-install my anti-virus Software.
    No2.
    Turn off my User Account Control (UAC).
    No.3
    Restart PC/Laptop *MUST*!!!!

    Then install the “vistaOSX v4″

    After you already install your vistaOSX v4.Don’t turn on your UAC on! These can cause some errors.I try on it once and i got some errors after i restart my laptop and i use “SAFE MODE” to turn it off back.Hahaha :P

  7. Here’s my problem. Sigh.

    I installed this back in March or so (V3). I ran the uninstall and no good; I restored and no good. Recently, I went into my system via Ubuntu and restored the backed-up files. However, I still see “OSX Edition” in the log-on screen AND I cannot turn UAC on. If I do, the system fails to load a mess of files on reboot.

    Now I need UAC in order to install a network printer at school…but I’m up a creek. I’ve done all that I could do in terms of restoring the system from back-ups…does anyone have any ideas to help?

  8. Ok so I downloaded this [not from here though!] installed it ran and I got the dock part which I was pretty happy about as I got to play about with it [and the fan extension], wallpaper, sounds etc. But the only disappointment was with the theme overall or should I say the colour and appearance. As it looks nothing like this [http://www.vistaosx.net/media.htm] but more like windows classic, which I hate and still has the normal dash, square & X’ ‘buttons instead of the red, yellow and green ones. Also i thought there would’ve been a log in screen or am I thinking of Flyakite. Anyways if someone could reply back with a solution or just e-mail at dannyb2009@hotmail.co.uk [no spam!] that’d be great as I could have my Mac experience complete. I love the designs of Macs and their software appearances but I gotta stay with Windows for gaming power! Btw I made sure I downloaded lastest version and I’m running 32 bit system please please help!

  16. If you download the correct version, everything will work fine, it looks good, and it comes with an uninstaller. HOWEVER, there was, at one time, a fake file on rapidshare that had malware on it. I don’t know if it has since been removed, but make sure you download it from a good source.

  19. Man, this is one beautiful package for Vista! I have installed it several times on several machines and I love it. Very complete and with all the tweaking available you can really have a good old fashioned OS X-like experience without all the performance hits. I use it with ObjectBar to complete the Mac-like look. Thanks for all the hard work, it installs flawlessly and works like a charm. With the UXTheme patch it is fast and not a resource hog. And the trojan comments above? Duh, it is doing trojan-like activities (like replacing system files) so of course you’ll get trojan warnings. Did you stop to read what they said? Shees. A question, it used to skin my Office 2007 apps, now it doesn’t. I monkeyed with some other stuff like VistaGlazz too (I tweak everything) and that might be the cause. How do I get my office skinning again?

  22. BTW, there is no malware in Vista OS X. For all of you that don’t understand computer as much as the geeks, the reason why your antivirus programs tell you that it is a trojan is because it’s doing what a trojan does, changing system files. Well, in order for the skin to work, it’s gotta change the system files, right? The transformation pack changes the system files safely and will not cause a problem to your system.

  24. OK guys alot of you have been having trouble with this theme as have I……The main problem is the uninstaller actually uninstalls all of the components it changes in the startup and theme settings from windows so instead of putting back the original files it just deletes them totally…..I like the way Vista OS X looks and works but not being able to use the Open With feature in all of windows is a major negative……The other downfall is not being able to use the open…save…save as…etc…..there is a slight bypass for this…….when opening a program such as word right click and open as admin. instead of just double clicking…….it is an extra step but it works……If you do not want this on your PC anymore it can be a pain to get rid of as the uninstaller doesnt work……the only way I have found and read successful is to save all the files you really need to a backup drive and actually do a factory reboot……yes it sucks!

  30. This theme is perfectly safe, and looks like a good quality Mac. The only problem is that the Dock that comes with it is insecure, so i recommend that you download RocketDock. Looks fine and all, if i was you I’d buy a mac but this theme is brilliant if you cannot.

  31. To the above mac heads (why this is way better than a mac): a real Mac has good things and terrible things. The UI and features are great (and you get those with this mods) the fact I cannot run 3DS Max, Softimage XSI, or play DeadSpace, Mass Effect, Crysis, The Witcher and a godzillion others is the bad part. (don’t even start me on “I have a console” as I don’t like to overpay games -$60???- that run at 30FPS with stutters, aliasing and what not).
    Why on earth one should overpay a computer that doesn’t run all softwares and games it’s beyond me…

  33. If you’ve read through this whole thread, you’ve probably notice that the only people who praise this Theme are people who haven’t tried to remove it. I installed it today, and regretted it. The Theme was snazzy. But the Themes service was broken. Running System Resore failed no matter which point I used. I’m running Vista Business SP1.

    I just successfully removed it. Here’s to do it:

    1) Make sure UAC is disabled (there are posts above that will help you do that).

    2) Start > Run > type “sfc /scannow” without the quotes > Enter. Let System File Checker run. You may need your Windows Install media to do this.

    3) Start > Run > type “msconfig” without the quotes > Enter > Startup tab > uncheck the line that references “OSX” > close msconfig.

    4) Reboot in Safe Mode.

    5) Use System Restore to restore to an earlier point before you installed Vista OSX 09.

    6) Once System Restore is complete and you’ve booted to standard mode, delete the folder/files at c:\VisaOSX09.

  34. Hello.

    Yeah I have been waiting for the 64bit version. Finally came. Made a restore point. Installed vista os x. Had some major issues in the begging. Vista os x theme was set and applied and everytime i restart the computer all i got was the vista os x startup screen and when windows loaded it was a normal windows setup. Then i went to the themes and there were 2 vista os x themes. Both different. Anyways got it to work but some of the features did not install correctly for some reason. When i go to my computer my dvd drive has a windows icon then later it changed to a green mac icon now back to windows. If i am on a site where i need to upload a photo and browse my hardrive i cannot do the list/large/medium/small/detail icon view. Also in the screenshots of vista os x the windows welcome center shows the mac X mine does not. My internet explorer back and foward buttons did not change either. If anyone had better luck with these things and know how to get them to work reply to the thread. Thanks

  35. To all those who are curious, don’t waste your time. I installed vista os x, and while the visuals were enjoyable, when I went to save a word document, i found myself unable to do so. I know several other users have had the same problem. I have been trying to uninstall it for a day or so, but to no avail. the uninstaller that came with it is completely useless and does absolutely nothing, and it doesnt show up in the add/remove program menu. i’ve tried removing it in safe mode with no luck, and i have also tried using a restore point, at which time my computer freezes.
    my next option is to format my hard drive (not that I would mind doing this, just inconvenient)
    to all of you reading this who want to download vista os x, think again. unless of course you have no problems with never being able to save a document again

  36. This is a pretty good program worth downloading if want your vista computer to look like a mac. Just go to the real link,

    http://www.vistaosx.net

    I downloaded it and got bored with it in about three days, so I tried uninstalling. Didn’t work. So I followed some other users directions and uninstalled it perfectly. Here’s the directions (again),

    1. Start windows in safe mode. (restart computer and tap F8.)
    2. Once in Safe Mode go Start- All Programs-Accessories-System Tools-System Restore.
    3. Choose a date when Vista OS X was not installed and restore.

    I hope this helps all the people still freaking out. Other wise I thought this was a great program.

  38. To the RIch guy…The reason internet explorer isnt working is because you have to redirect the file, right click the icon in the dock and hit folder, go to program files, internet explorer, and then “iexplore.” Now this should work, also everyone who says there is trojans please read Mrsoymilks commment. He knows what he is talking about..
