Well Betamax, ure the Shell guy here, so plz tell me (or anyone else ;) )
if i wanna use a shell like litestep i can just download the zip, uncompresst it to a dir in the HD and edit sistem.ini right? i mean, in system.ini in front of shell put ex. C:\litestep\litestep.exe eh?
to get back to normal, its explorer.exe istn it?
and when i reboot it should be w/ the new shell...
am i right?

oh, and is there a good site to Dload Shells in zip files?

no prob dude :)
so, where to download the free version? er, it doesnt deactivates itself after a whyle right? it keeps running and the only limitations are the lack of some programs arent it?
oh, and what about the other question about deactivating all the components?
Quite right. Each component is disablied in a different way, eg windowblinds stops skining menus.

You are also correct about the components. They can be activatred or deactivated as you like.
i was talking if u switch off the load on startup option, if it switchs off _all_ the components, cause i wanted it to do that :)

and what about the limitations of the shareware version?
Oh no there a Load on starup option for each component:D. Setting these things up is like setting up plugins.

Limitations windowsblinds already mentioned.

DesktopX: Feratures disabled
Icon packager: cannot change all icons
WindowFX: stops working
Skin Studio: Dunno
Control center: Dunno
oh my god, so much work... lolz

well, thx a lot for ur infos but i think ill DLoad every component separated and then config them as i wish :)

once again, thkx :)
so muck work dudes :p

I'm happy with litestep, I've been making my own theme for 2 years and half now, and I tweaked the Litestep itself, it doesn't crash so much now! :), in fact, it only crashed once :D , no, twice, The 1st time was with IE and the second with Hitman!
kewl :)

what the last litestep version?
I think the last version is 0.25 but i'm using 0.24!
I think we all know what to do when we want a program but find that it's shareware... if you see what I mean.
U stop using it right?
either that or you register it;)

ps the latest webblinds component v0.99i has the readme for v1.0 attached. This probably means that it will soon be released for the rest of the world:p (it enables you to fully skin ie 5/6).
