I liked the skin - XP is a much cleaner interface - its a pity the taskbar icons and start button dont work. I would be fine on WIN98 or W2K

I'm using MS Windows98, and when I try to change it the Windows XP Style in the Properties, it stuck there.

I can't seem to get this to work. It keeps hanging when I try to change to this skin.

I had an older version that was great. I could not find the other color versions so I tried downloading it again. Now it crashes XP Pro! Please fix this great skin.

For those of you who have problems loading this skin, here is the fix.

Rename the directory that contains this skin--should be named 'Homestead' located in your Windowblinds directory--and rename the directory to 'LunaXP'.

I had problems with my machine locking up, but re-naming the directory fixed that problem; however, now there's a problem with the way the checkboxes look--they're distorted. Everything else about the skin looks great.

Dingleberry: It also helps those of us who are forced to use Windows 2000 at the office to have an XP look.

Mr. Shannon,

The problem with the distorted checkboxes is a bug I think that exists with any version of WindowBlinds under version 3.41. Version 3.3 had a problem, but version 3.41 didn't...might be due to the graphic type (.tga or .bmp) or some other attributes assigned to the skin/graphics...try the shareware version out to see if that fixes the problem...the other solution to the problem is to download another Luna theme, and copy the same graphics over to the LunaXP folder, and make sure the replacement files has the same name as the original ones. This may not work entirely, but I seem to have fixed the problem this way, as I am running version WindowBlinds 3.3

I fixed the checkboxes and radios for those of you who have a WB version that doesn't support the extra images in checkboxes and radios. As for the problems with it installing in HomeStead instead of LunaXP, I've changed the file into a zip file, so you'll have to install it manually, but it'll work.

Hate to add to the litany, but this problem is a bit different, I think...

...I renamed the Homestead folder, as suggested, and that did stop rundll32.exe from freezing every time. But now none of the graphics will load, and loading the skin simply loads the Windows Classic style. Any help?

I'm using Win2k, and I've downloaded this skin about 5 times, but each time I try it, my whole PC freezes. What is this?
