Static 2.0 by snipes2 Static 2.0 by snipes2
Inspired by the windows 7 phone gui and the awesome rainmeter skin omnium [link]

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks to Lumen-Melano here [link] i can now present to you the solution to the MS Office bug some people encountered. Here's what Lumen-Melano wrote:

Right click anywhere on the desktop and click personalise.
Make sure you have selected one of the Static themes as your current theme.
Click on "Window Color" at the buttom of the window.
Then click "Advanced appearance settings".
Then on the new window find 3D Objects in the dropdown menu under "Item:"
Then just make sure that both "Color 1" and "Color" are white.
Click OK and Save Changes and you should be done.

Update:
Because both colours are white it can affect some programs so that toolbars appear all white. You can in fact change it to any colour, as long as it isn't black.

So to prevent those issues instead of selecting white for "Color" select Other.
Then select black in the bottom lefthand corner of "Basic colors".
Then drag the arrow on the far right up a little bit and then click "Add to Custom Colors".
Make sure that colour is selected before you click "OK".

So even though it looks pretty much like black it isn't and it prevents from older programs not showing up correctly.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Inside:

// Three different visual styles
// Three different explorerframes (64x and 32x)
// Preview
// Readme with installation instructions
// Mataching start orbs

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

stuff in the preview:

icons: [link]

Many thanks to :iconalexavila: for providing the 32x explorerframe.dll, :iconstdevilheart: for creating the shell32.dll and :iconotisbee: for the DD feature!

Thanks for downloading!

Daily Deviation

Given 2011-04-25
Static 2.0 by ~snipes2 puts the Windows' Phone 7 look & feel back on your desktop. It's a great example that the reduction of details and the overall transformation to something more minimal, combined with a perfect choice of colors, can still preserve excellent eyecandy and a very smooth workflow experience.

It's nice!
But you should fix the Rainmeter skin reference, which is actually called "Omnimo".

I take that back, if you're running x64, you only need to change the .dll is system32. Ignore my last comment.

Issues in Chrome after replacing ExplorerFrame.dll: whenever I try to open the download folder via "Show in folder", error says "Class not registered". I guess I'll use this without the Explorer Frames.

Uh, how do you install this? I tried doubleclicking the *.msstyles files, but the theme just reverted to win 7 default no-aero theme

Maaan, this theme is amazing.
But I got some serious problems with dlls files.
I'm running Windows X64 and there is System32 and SysWoW64 both with FrameExplorer.dll
I got to replace 64 bit FrameExplorer.dll in SysWoW64 and 32bit FrameExplorer.dll in System32 or I got to use only one X64 or X86 file in both?
And how about 32bit/Shell32.dll? It's only for X86 Windows? Do I need to replace it on System32 or SysWoW64?

Hey, glad yo like the Visual Style!
You only have to replace the files in your system32 folder, that will be enough.
So you only have to use the files for the x64 system.

As do I. There are themes that install themselves automatically and this is not one of them. The installation file you included does not justice when it comes to helping someone install this theme correctly. You must remember that not all of us have the knowledge to consciously know where to put what. If you can, please be more specific on how to correctly install this theme, because I really would like it. That leaves me to say, you did an amazing job on this theme. I personally love it. Keep it up.

Awesome theme and has been my favorite since static 1. But there is a minor problem. Whenever I open firefox with it, the theme is completely white which looks quite awkward. I tried fixing 3d objects color, but no avail.. (although it fixed the problem with paint and office)

Thank you very much for the comment!
Firefox can be a bitch since it uses some, but not all elements from the msstyle...
Sorry to say that, but the flaw is on their end.
Glad you like it though!
Also i'm very sorry for the late reply :)

You will have to do it manually:
1. download the icons (link in the description)
2. right click the icon on your taskbar you want to change
3. right click the program in the pop up menu and select "properties"
4. you can chose another icon of your choice in the shortcut menu

Hallo, erstmal Dankeschön, dass du dieses super design erstellt hast. Ich kann beim besten Willen mit keinem anderem etwas anfangen, obwohl ich zugegebener Maßen, der Abwechslung halber immer mal wieder schau obs nicht doch etwas ähnlich zurückhaltendes gibt. War aber leider bisher nicht erfolgreich.

Leider verursacht die explorerframe.dll aber ein Problem bei mir. Und zwar wenn ich den "Speichern unter" Dialog zB aber nicht nur bei firefox öffne wird rechts wo normalerweise diverse Ordner alla Arbeitsplatz Eigene Dateien stc erscheinen nichts angezeigt. Ich bin jetzt drauf gekommen, dass es an explorerframe.dll liegen muss weils mit der Originaldatei noch funktioniert. Das einzige wo ich mir bei der Installation nicht sicher war ist ob die Datei aus dem 64 Ordner sowohl in System32 als auch SysWOW64 muss oder ob in System32 die Datei aus dem Ordner 32 kommt.
Ich wär wirklich sehr cankbar wenn du mir helfen könntest weil ich wirklich ungern einen anderen visual style benutzen will.
Danke schonmal im Vorraus.

Hallo! vielen Dank fürden Kommentar!
Das ist ein gängiges Windows Problem, das durch das Austauschen von Systemdateien unregelmäßig entsteht.
Das selbe Problem hatteich auch schon einige male.
Hier die Lösung:

Es reicht vollkommen aus die Dateien im system32-Ordner auszutauschen;)

Ah vielen Dank, das hat geholfen.
Mir ist gerade noch aufgefallen, dass das hier ja eine 2. Version ist und mir die 1. angeschaut die mir auch sehr gefällt. Einzig schade finde ich, dass dort die Buttons zum Schließen, Maximieren und "Entmaximieren" wieder die typischen Zeichen haben, also Kreuz usw.. Meinst du, ich könnte wenn ich zur Abwechslung static 1 benutzen will das selber irgendwie änder, dass dort die besagten Buttons auch so sind wie hier?
