Windows 95 Project by eggi36 Windows 95 Project by eggi36
I'm prouldy presenting you my first Windows theme:

"The Windows 95 Project"

It's a theme for Windows xp, that let it looks like Windows 95.

In this new release, much more icons were replaced by the 95 ones. Some were taken from the inexpierence patcher because Windows 95 hadn't icons for everything. Also the toolbar has the 95 buttons and the old Windows flag. I also include the Windows 95 sounds.
New in this release is the miniplayer-theme for windows media player 10 users.


This theme includes:

-theme file
-explorer.exe
-many files for system32
-wmploc.dll for windows media player 10 users

I know that it's not the best way to replace system files, but at this time I have no alternative. Maybe someone can give me some tips.

ONLY FOR WINDOWS XP!

At the moment I will not continue the development.

If I remember top of my head, I once had a Windows 95 laptop back when I was little.

Hello! Thank you very much for this! Is there a way to keep Windows XP from insisting on restoring the its own explorer.exe every time it is replaced? Many thanks!

Well, thank you dude. Maybe you did a great job on this theme, but it destroyed my OS, and it cannot be booted. It would be okay, not a big deal to reinstall Windows for me, but if i could... I have an old IBM pc that have Windows XP installed on it. I wanted to install 98 or 95 on it, but i could not for the reason of the broken CD-ROM on it (The lens), and the Floppy Drive that also doesn't read any floppies. The best guess in this situation could be a bootable USB drive from where i can install the OS, but "whoops".. The BIOS does not support it.

So... Yea. Wanted to thank twice for your great theme, and for braking my OS on the old PC. Not blaming you, but you could at least leave a warning or something. Or at least test it...

Well guys, be carefull not to fall on what i did. Cheers.

Is this theme language independent? Also, could you make a Windows 98 theme for Windows XP?

Please avoid replacing system files instead make the theme in setup.exe that is install method. That would be the best.

no, maybe for Windows 8. But themeing the newer Windows version isn't so much fun as themeing Windows xp :/

the DS only has about 32MB of ram so good luck. They have a similar DSLinux project up if you want to look into that.( DSLinux is the name. )

I have DsLinux. I think, with a Supercard DsTwo and a 32 GB Micro SD card. I just might be able.l to run Win95.

look into the source of DSLinux and Qemu and maby you can use a little bit of each for the ability to use Windows 95.

I have win 95 running on 16MB of ram on an IBM. He should be good

ram99 Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2013  Hobbyist Interface Designer
but the processor on a DS is a modified ARM32 cpu,  and emulation is usually, unless you find a amazing emulator, half to a third of the speed of virtualization, so it will almost be like running it on 12 mb of ram in theory. also the cpu is very low powered.

that sounds great. If you want the source-files (bitmaps, icons etc.) just ask.

Nice! Now what if you were to get the sound theme, startup and shutdown included? Also, that same theme could work for the Win98 look too.

most likely not, Windows 7 isn't so "easy" to customize like xp.

Yeah, I've found that lol! Windows 7 is quite accomidating, but I hate that they took away so many programs and functions.

Thanks anyway. :)
