Transformation Pack Notes
Modifying system files and changing system configuration may get reported as malware by some antivirus software.
You need to temporary turn-off antivirus software so that program won't be interfered during installation/uninstallation.
If you feel insecurity with this, you can consider Windows 8 UX Pack as it doesn't involve modifying system files.

I've just upload a new build that have fixed the following issues.

1. System files transformation failure in non-English OS (hexpatcher dialog stuff and improper/none changes in system resources)
2. Errors related to sound files in Windows\Media for Windows Vista (Though it worked fine in testing Vista Home Premium x86/x64 but I've refined for better method)

If you don't have any problems with stated fixes, you don't need to reinstall it. But regardless of your result, I suggest to keep this updated build in hand just in case.

It's about one month after Windows 8 Consume Preview being released. Finally, all the changes since Developer Preview are reviewed and implemented. This time I'm trying to unify both Transformation/UX Pack to have the same version to avoid confusion To make things clear again, UX Pack works similar to Transformation Pack but without system files modification and can be installed on Windows 7 only. Now Windows 8 Transformation Pack is safer and more reliable with improvements from Lion Transformation Pack and along with its feedback.

All detected bugs are now fixed along with better ways to handle transformation improved from Lion Transformation Pack. New resources are implemented in proper ways to use. Try icons look nice now and new Windows branding inspired a few places to update. New Segoe fonts rock and existing font will be updated without trouble. It's available only for Windows 8 Transformation Pack though as UX Pack is promised to not modify anything at all. Charms Bar is now implemented for people who can't get full Immersive UI to work well. And best of all, there're a lot of visual changes that you shouldn't miss especially XP users will be in great joy.
