Let me introduce the end of my Personalization Panel project.

Here is Aero patch created by my friend Mr. dUSHA what enables full featured aero glass and personalization features in Windows 7 Home Basic and Windows 7 Starter, such as
- Aero Glass and coloring.
- Full themes support including RSS and slideshow themes.
- Peak, Shake and WinFlip 3D.
- Third party themes support.
All you need to do is:
1. Uninstall Winreview's Personaliation Panel and Personalization panel DWM controller if they was installed.
2. Apply the patch. Your Windows will be rebooted. Just wait when it wuill be done
3. Enjoy.

Demo of Windows 7 Starter.

Why stop when it's just getting started. I see plenty of reasons to continue and improve.

Anyways great work!

Exactly. Why reproduce unneeded what the OS can do by itself? Yes, you need a patch to enable most of this, but still, if there is one unified way of doing it, then less instructions per app have to be made. and besides, it's his app, he can kill it if he wants to.

Wow, it looks very similar to the original Personalize feature from Home Premium. :)

Looks like I wasted money on my Windows 7 Home Premium. :lol:

But seriously home users won't be buying Home Premium edition now. I hope Microsoft won't have any problem with this patch.

I think Microsoft WILL release anti-patch and will ask to remove patch. I am sure.

Can Windows Home Basic users use the .themepack files downloaded from Windows Personalization Gallery after installing this patch?

Hi
Bored without updates? Here is something fresh for you.
Aero Patch 1.4
"This copy of Windows is not genuine" fixed. Probably you'll never see it again.
However, not everything will shine and sing. My friend Sergey "Smarty" Shicharev have figured how to suppress notifications. Aero Patch 1.4 still modifies the set of system files and I can't claim it as "safe". Actually you Windows will be not genuie. :no:

The good news is uninstaller. Go to Control Panel - Programs - Uninstall a program to completely remove Aero patch and rollback all changes. Again, thanks to Smarty :yes:

Aero Patch 1.4 was successfully tested by me and lots of other users and we found no issues.

As usual, i have to remind you what all credits goes to the author - Mr. dUSHA. Me, Winaero etc is the english mirror for Aero Patch. I am providing it for you with author's permissions.

:woot: Download Aero Patch 1.4 :woot:
