Editors' Review

+

This is app is extremely simple, but performs an essential and possibly complicated task for Windows Vista customizers. It patches several DLLs that control Vista's appearance so that users can alter Vista to their liking. It's also freeware, making it a viable workaround for those who want to tweak Vista but don't want to pay for it. It also changes Aero so that it stays in effect on maximized screens.

There's not much else to the program. It absolutely will not work with Vista Service Pack 1 Release Candidates. If you install Vista Glazz before removing the SP1 RC, simply uninstall the app and then SP1, and then reinstall the program. The interface is basic, there are no skins provided, and the EULA gives off the vague stench of unfounded fear.

Nevertheless, if you're looking for a simple solution to a potential nightmare, Vista Glazz may be the first step you'll need to take to pretty up Vista just the way you want.

"Perfect for customizing Vista appearance"

October 31, 2008  |  By alangel

 |  Version: VistaGlazz 1

Pros

This app is the perfect app for adding your own themes to Windows Vista. No more need for process stealing and inaccurate stuff like WindowBlinds e.g. This integrates straight to the interface of Vista themes without having to run any extra processes

Cons

I really don't see any...!

October 16, 2008  |  By banik2008

 |  Version: VistaGlazz 1

Pros

Nice design, looks professional

Cons

On a fresh install of Vista, said it could not patch my theme DLLs.

Summary

Looks like a great programme, but it didn't work on my machine. I hope it will, sooner or later. I'll be keeping an eye on next releases.

"Bad Bad Bad!!!"

September 26, 2008  |  By cool_newton

 |  Version: VistaGlazz 1

Pros

Nothing... there's nothing i liked about this product

Cons

It crashed my Rundll32 file...

Summary

it stopped working... the themes changed to classic style with some gray theme.. n when i clicked on the appearance and display change buttons in the control panel... an error message about rundll32 not working was displayed... i had to restore my system to remove all the effects applied by this thing... the worst part is it takes ownership of restricted registries and if not restored appropriately the changes would take effect permanently... until of course vista is installed again... worst software i've installed till now...

"Easy to Install"

September 18, 2007  |  By johnrpan

 |  Version: VistaGlazz 1

Pros

Very nice features and allows you to customize the look. You can also download different themes from vista-skins.com and get the same look and feel by changing the Vista theme or skins on your desktop.

Cons

You can only change the glass look. Doesn't offer a variety of themes or looks to change the interface of Vista.
