The Vista Transformation Pack (VTP) for Windows XP has become very popular and version 6 is right around the corner. The developer estimates its release to be around Christmas (December 25) and it will have several great features that people have been requesting all along:
- No more system files replacement issues, no more safemode.
- Partially x64 support (Well, I intended to make system files patching for x64 also but itâ€™s too much of pain for me replacing each icon resources without more handy apps so only vista stuffs like themes, wallpapers, etc. for now).
- Machine configuration (Adjust your monitor for more compatible resources.
- Application tweaks (Vista MCE, Task manager, dial-up connection, etcâ€¦).
- More applications bundled (VistaTooltip, Start orb emulation, Styler and thoosjeâ€™s brand new SideBar, etc.).
If you have used the transformation pack before then you probably know how cool it looks. However, there has been a lot of uninstallation problems in the past where the users uninstall the VTP and not everything returns to normal. That is the biggest issue I would like to see resolved in this release.
You can impress a lot of people by using the Vista Transformation Pack and several people really thought I was running Vista back when I had this installed. If you don’t want to wait until December to try out the new VTP you can download VTP 5.5 right now.
