  1. This is by-design. Ideally you should uninstall xpize before re-installing. The software doesn't yet fully support the "reload" or "change just the scheme" scenarios.
  2. Does the installer detect file changes and automatically run like the old reloader did? I'll add some kind of intelligent reloader in Release 6.

    Updated Translations

    Why don't you make a translation for Portuguese Digitalfox? You can start from the Brazilian local, which should make it way easier. The differences between Portuguese and Brazilian Portugese are analogous to British English vs. American English, there's nothing to be gained.
  4. I've finally thought up a way to implement the "simple selector" thing, so here it is: I'll be making xpize 5 Release 5 tomorrow.

    Updated Translations

    Wrong Seriously, there was only a couple hundred downloads from Portugal, whereas Brazil has at least 10,000.

    Updated Translations

    I'll update it with a split Brazilian/Portuguese flag in Release 5. UPDATE: The flag (16x8) is too small to show up when split. I'll just stick with the Brazilian flag, there aren't that many users from Portugal anyway.
  7. A Ukrainian magazine has requested to include a copy of xpize 5 in their demodisc. I was wondering if anyone can read and write Ukrainian and can translate it ASAP?

    xpize 5 Release 4

    Tempting as it is to include additional visual styles, I must resist. There's simply far too many good ones. What's needed is a site that only accepts high-quality and original submissions. There are so many variations on Royale (including the "official" ones: Embedded, Zune, and Royale Noir) that you just grow sick at the very sight of them. Little fun fact: the Zune, Embedded, and Royale Noir visual styles were all made by the same graphic designer working for Microsoft who was just playing around with some ideas at the time. Since he had access to the private key to sign them they were wide

    fatal error

    Yeah, don't do that When you install an Anolis package, like xpize, it records the MD5 hash of each file after it's been patched, and then it makes a backup copy of the original. It replaces the patched file with the original only if the hash matches, which is an improvement on XPize 4.x which just overwrites it anyway (more or less). It does the overwriting using the PFRO table (aka MoveFileEx) which is done during restarts, which can conflict with updates from Microsoft. For this reason NEVER install (or uninstall) xpize (or any other Anolis package) at the same time as any Windows updates)

    Vize 2.0 Release 1

    That should work, yes.
  12. There's been a lot of submissions for new and updated resources that I don't think I'll be able to get into Release 5 if I want it out in the next couple of days. With that in mind, Release 5 will be out tomorrow hopefully (hot on the heels of Vize 2.0 Release 1, released only an hour ago) that will fix the major bugs (such as a lot of the icons not being updated, whoops!) and other new stuff. Release 6 will follow, later on in August and will include as many of the more recent resources that I can do. If you've got suggestions you want to see included in Release 6 you can make things much eas

    Vize 2.0 Release 1

    Get it from the downloads page http://www.vizeos.net/download.php
  14. Please refer to the thread on the Vize forums.
  15. I've made another screencast in my horrible little voice again, this time walking through the process of creating an Anolis package and then embedding it in a customized installer. . , it's nothing special and not required watching.Enjoy.

    Vize 2.0 Release 1

    Uh.... give me about another 10 hours, it's 2am and I was interrupted by family so I couldn't get it posted, and I need my sleep.

    Vize 2

    I've configured Vize so it won't install on Windows 7, this is by design (although you can always use the /ignoreCondition switch to force an install, this is not recommended, however). There will be a separate project for Windows 7 once it hits RTM in later August.

    Vize 2.0 Release 1

    Check it out, yo!

    Vize 2.0 Release 1

    So... this is Vize 2.0 Release 1, which is more of a beta than anything else. It includes all the resources patched by Vize 1.1 Beta, and then some, including the fixes developed by Saarineames ( http://saarineames.deviantart.com ), including: 256x256 Flip3D icon Fixed the back/forward button background hover stretch when in Classic mode (great for WS2008 users!) x64 support (untested, which is what this beta is for) Uses the same installation system as xpize 5 And some other stuff What doesn't work: UxTheme patching system. I need to modify my code (which is based off Deepxw's) first. Vize

    Problems on Vista

    Just a quick announcement to say I've developed a workaround (by removing the RC Config whilst it saves it, then restoring the RC Config immediately afterwards).

    xpize 5 Release 4

    That's mshtml.dll with bitmaps 2033, 2034, and 2035. Can you test out your replacements for me? I don't have the time to do it myself.Note that I don't think 32-bit BMPs would work. Right now those bitmaps are 4bpp (aka 16-color).

    Problems on Vista

    I've been working on Vize, and it seems my resource patching framework is sort-of incompatible with Windows Vista's system files: For ordinary files, patching resources is handled fine, nothing special; but Vista's system files have an "RC Config" set which restricts how resources can be modified when using the Win32 resource functions (which is indeed a right problem). I'm looking for ways around this. This problem doesn't affect ResHacker because it parses Win32 PE/COFF files by itself (which is why it's incompatible with x64). I'll keep you informed.

    xpize 5 Release 4

    TweakUI is incompatible with x64, and there are a few settings changed by TweakUI that are also done by xpize with the <systemParameter /> operation.
  24. The Windows XP logo font is ITC Franklin Gothic, not Tahoma.
  25. Wow, that /is/ weird, and yet I can't think of anything that would prompt it. I've spoken to a friend of mine who works on Windows, and he's seen it before but can't put his finger on it. Does it happen in any other folders or just the root of D:\ ?
