Publisher's Description

XPize is a GUI enhancer for Windows XP and above. It replaces most of the non-XP icons, avis and bmps that Microsoft has always overlooked. The installer simply automates the process of replacing resources in critical system files, making your XP's look better. It also includes some extras and a reloader, which you can use after visiting Windows Update.

This new release is Absolutely perfect, makes your XP breath a new generation air.
Doesn't cause any problems at all and you can customize absolutely every bit of the revamp.

Galifray, learn to use it loser.

For those who continue to use XP, and it seems many people do, this adds a nice set of eye-candy icons and the like to breathe some life in the aging aesthetics of the OS. I have tried this version on two PC's and have had, as yet, no problems.

I tried the previous beta release (which was the final????) and I uninstalled it in about half an hour. Oh the icons are pretty enough, but it rewrote customized settings to its need. For example, I already had my own pdf icon, but XPize set it to a new one.
Also, I didn't see an option to NOT install and use the task switcher that comes with XPIZE.
It needs to leave MY settings alone or only be installed during a new install.

Great program! Makes your Windows XP look much better (Note: if you're using Vista, try Vize from the same developers: http://fileforum.betanew...etail/Vize/1189698355/1)
Check out the screenshots, they speak for themselves: http://www.xpize.net/screenshots.php
Also, this is no longer a Beta, this is (finally!) Version 5 FINAL of XPize. Almost a year after the original developer quit the project and handed it over to a group of people (a big thank you to all of them!), XPize Version 5 is released :)

XPize is good, works as advertised and is a huge improvement over the default icons in XP.

However I prefer Tango Patcher

@Stingray57: I had the same problem. You need to install MS NET Framework 2.0 first.

This has way too many bugs.It doesn't install everything stated in the description..
The icon in control panel to adjust settings gives you errors and won't open.I couldve just went with uxtheme and got taskswitch on my own.Maybe even threw on the tango patcher etc.

Anyhow, when i logged off i got a value error.I then restarted and uninstalled.Now i can't reboot my pc..

This should be named ''alpha''

Be Warned..

If you have already have "Media Center 2005", but wish to spruce it up I recommend NOT installing the actual Luna theme as it seems to get rid of the Start Menu picture. I don't know why they did this. (I also don't use the Boot Screen and the Wallpaper.)

I've only got one issue which is all my DVD's show blue Internet Explorer icons for every file type. It's not a huge deal and I'll figure out what's causing this when I get a chance. It might be as simple as NOT installing the new IE icon?

Basically, what XPize does is update the ugly Luna style of your WinXP or Win2003 to the latest version of Luna Royale, the default glass skin of WinXP MCE (Media Center Edition 2005). Aesthetically speaking, you could say that Luna Royale is the prototype of Aero and it indeed looks good (at least much better than plain old Luna).

Only issue so far I encountered is the included Fedora Inverse cursor scheme; the hotspot zone (clickable area) is vertically off by a few pixels. I reverted to the default system scheme, which works just fine.

I installed this on WinXP sp2 went fine. No errors were reported and it made everything look a bit nicer. I didn't notice a huge resource change.

I really like the new stuff. This is what XP should allow you to do any way, change the way things look; everyone doesn't think/do the same.

It's installed, but the 'settings' won't open. I get 'failed to initialize properly.. and it terminates.

Apparently, needs a little work, but nice thus far.
