Seven Transformation Pack 5.0.

Make the look of your desktop like Microsoft's Windows 7 operating system! Seven Transformation Pack will transform your Windows Vista/ XP/ 2003 based system to look like Windows 7, including Windows 7 Boot Screen, Welcome Screen, Visual Style, Icons, Wallpapers, Sounds and much more. You don't have to purchase Windows 7 or any 3rd-party applications to get Windows 7 UI experiences. This transformation pack will simply make it done for you for free! This will update your Windows XP, Windows Server 2003 or Vista OS with Windows Seven GUI by adding some themes and replacing system files. Seven Transformation Pack gives to your system the fresh and cool look of Microsoft's new operating system: Windows 7. The pack changes most of the system icons, skins and toolbars and also adds new enhancements to your desktop.
No more ticking what to install or not install. Just choose if you want to experience recommended configuration that has everything installed and has stable configuration or stay safe with Performance for no 3rd-party applications and UI tweaks besides common ones. You can still customize with Express Mode and Personalization though. I recommend using Recommended configuration and customize features later in Welcome Center.

Improved user experiences
Now it comes with all official Windows 7 wallpapers which is main reason why this version is significantly larger and transformation process will apply default Windows 7 wallpaper. I've been considering updating visual styles for a few months before actual release and ended up working on elsewhere as my effort will become obsolete with ViStart+ViGlance+TrueTransparency combined. So I updated default skin in those applications instead making tredemous improvements that can easily archive Aero UI in Windows XP with Seven Transformation Pack alone. And blur works on TrueTransparency and ViStart now.

Bug fixes and optimizations
Since last year, almost every bugs reported in Seven Transformation Pack 4.0 are fixed. I won't mention fixed bugs here so go read them in changelog. UAC can be turned off from Seven Transformation Pack when run as Administrator and this can save a lot of newbies from messing UAC on their own. ViGlance and TrueTransparency are optimized for less utilization and deferred launcher works better on slow system at startup. Minimum hardware requirements limiter is now lifted as user can reinstall with Performance configuration to avoid trouble (Though they can customize them in Welcome Center)

Reworked Welcome Center for easier maintenance
Improved Welcome Center making maintenance job becoming a lot easier. Repairing system files will have red text color alert when new files are found and report set of files to repair. Uninstallation has verification UI to make sure uninstallation will go smoothly and safe. There're also other improvements like fixing graphic glitches and Back button for better navigation.

Well, that's 5.0 in a nutshell. You get things done easier, prettier, more secure and reliable. Make sure you try to choose optimal 3rd-party applications for your system if you feel it slows your system down. I decided recommended configuration based on netbook with 1.6GHz CPU with 1GB RAM. If you don't open too many applications, it would be fine, though. ViApps updates are taken from latest build from You can check for further updates in there.
