Important note:
1- In case of themes installation and specific types of files (.dll, .theme, .msstyle etc) which are not installers, you need to find a place C:WINDOWSResourcesThemes to copy those files there.
2- In case you are using SP1, SP2, SP3 with XP or SP1 or later with Vista, You first need to allow third party themes support before transforming OS. You will need some kind of UXTheme patcher.
3- Transformations are for advanced users, who can bear experimentation with OS.
4- Another software you will be needing is Resource Hacker (in some cases).
5- Mostly I have given links for installers. In some cases there are some files which you need to copy directly to exact right location or use the Resource Hacker to do the task. Install instructions will be with the software.
6- Ask if you are confused or finding problem in transforming OS.

Okay now let’s see what we have got here. Choose your transformation category, select post, download files, have fun.

    Dear Hiroshi,
    It’s Nice Man.

    @pIPZ: Just uninstall what you installed. Revert those changes back which you made. You should had created a restore point. Windows restore point changes back everything to whatever it was when you create a restore point. That is easiest way.

    I NEED HELP… I WANT TO KNOW IF HOW CAN I HAVE MY PREVIOUS OS BACK…. SURE THE WINDOWS 7 IS COOL BUT I WANT TO RETURN IT AS THE WAY IT IS…

  4. I’m agree with you Hiroshi.. I love these packs! I will transform my Vista in a Mac!

    @Robert: Okay. Definitely its look, but it also feel a bit, right! I mean you get visual style with some functionality shift also with transformations packs. If I am using Windows XP and I love to get a bit of a Windows 7 or vista but do not feel to purchase it just yet or install it yet, then why not I should have a transformation pack to get just really that. Its fun also. You can make your friends wonder that you are using Ubuntu or MAC OS X while using XP, right? If you want to upgrade then please buy the new OS. If you want fun and you want to give your old version a new look and feel and a bit of a new functionality, then go for transformation packs which you can enable, disable, install, uninstall or whatever you do, you have got complete control. Still developers like Win XP or MAC OS X. Think about a developer or network administrator who is using Linux and wants to have a look and feel of MAC OS X. Why not he should use Transformation Pack?

    Nice work, but if you like these OSes so much then go get it! THESE ONLY LOOK LIKE THE OS PROJECTED BUT IN *ALL* CASES THEY ARE PURELY VISUAL AND THE REAL OS IS MUCH DIFFERENT AT THE CORE! if you don’t believe me wiki windows and you find that, for example, windows XP is in the range of the 2000 builds where as vista is in the 5000 range.
