SevenVG RTM Theme for XP by Vishal-Gupta SevenVG RTM Theme for XP by Vishal-Gupta

Black version available - [link]

Normal Taskbar version available - [link]

*** For Windows XP ***

>>> First and Best Windows 7 look-like Theme for XP <<<

This theme has been created for Windows XP users so that they can enjoy the new Windows 7 look in their good old XP.

How to Use - [link]

SevenVG is the first theme for Windows XP which:

  • Brought Windows 7 look to XP

  • Introduced Superbar (re-designed Taskbar) in XP

And everyone here knows that almost all other Windows 7 themes are based on "SevenVG" theme. Although many theme creators are gentle enough to provide credits but some are not and I'm regularly getting PMs from people notifying me about various DeviantART members who are ripping SevenVG theme.

Anyway, lets talk about this new theme!

"SevenVG RTM" is an update over previous "SevenVG RC" theme. I have updated lots of resources in this theme and fixed various bugs reported by all of you. I really appreciate your valuable feedback.

Following are some major changes in this new theme:

[Changes List]

  • New Taskbar buttons similar to Windows 7 RTM (with round corners, updated colors and glow effect)

  • New User Pic frame in Startmenu similar to Windows 7 RTM

  • Windows 7 default Userpic is shown in Startmenu if Welcome Screen is not enabled

  • A brand new Startmenu in Basic style similar to Windows 7 RTM (Thanks to XibaD)

  • MSN icon replaced with Windows 7 logo in Basic Startmenu

  • New Menubar matching with Windows 7 RTM

  • New Quick Launch graphics and buttons spacing updated to match with Windows 7 RTM

  • Quick Launch "Large Icons" issue fixed. Now Taskbar height remains same.

  • A brand new "Styler" toolbar included to match Windows 7 RTM

  • Titlebar buttons graphics and position updated

  • System Tray icons position updated to take less space

  • New "Hide Inactive Icons" resources

  • "Details" view graphics in Explorer updated to match Windows 7 RTM

  • Taskbar resources updated for proper view in Top, Bottom, Left and Right sides

  • New "All Programs" Menu Background matching with Windows 7 RTM

  • And lots of other small graphics updated

  • At last many bugs fixed as usual

I have tried my best to make this theme absolutely look-like Windows 7 RTM and I hope you all will enjoy this new version.

Installing this theme is very easy. You simply need to run the "Theme.exe" file. If you are not sure where to start from, please take a look at following link which contains proper instructions:

Where is the theme file? I mean the file that would be named SevenVG.theme.
Vishal-Gupta Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2012
This theme comes with an automatic installer. You just need to run Theme.exe file and it'll copy the required files and folders to Windows. :)

This is great! Thanks!!! I've really been getting tired of the XP theme for a while now but have to have it on my work machine. I run Win7 at home which just makes it look that much worse. I do have one issue, though...after applying the theme my Start Menu icons on the righthand side (My Documents, Control Panel, etc.) are showing slightly truncated icons whereas in your screenshot there are no icons in that column. Is there some way to adjust the theme or the overall appearance to remove/hide those icons? Oh, and there's no "Undock" icon when I'm connected to my docking station...just the icons for "Log Off" and "Shut Down".

I downloaded it, unzipped it, extracted the files to my C drive. So then I went to the Theme thing, and double clicked to let it run.

Well then, after it installed, and the Change Your Theme thing came up, I had it set for this theme, and I clicked Apply, but it just made my computer have the original, old Windows look instead of the Windows 7 look.

Did I do something wrong, or is there something I need to do that I didn't?
Vishal-Gupta Featured By Owner May 30, 2010
Have you run UXTheme patcher?
Brackenleaf Featured By Owner May 30, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes, all it did was change it back to the same 'old Windows' style.
