There are many transformation packs to transform Windows into Windows 7. Many stylists/programmers/geeks have posted custom methods about changing different components of Windows Xp into Windows 7. I will mention some of the popular working methods and downloads for transforming Windows XP into Windows 7. Installation instructions will come with transformation pack.

Windows 7 Transformation Pack

How it Works
  • Download the file and extract its content.

  • In this folder, you'll get 5 more folders
    • Extra Common Tasks (This folder contains 2 extra shell styles: Bottom and    Left dark blue)

    • Fonts (This folder contains Segoe UI fonts required for the theme. Run Fonts.exe file to install them.)

    • Iconized Taskbar Hack (This folder contains registry script to enable Iconized taskbar in Windows XP.)

    • Styler Toolbar (This folder contains Styler setup and SevenVG styler toolbar skin. It'll provide Windows 7 look-a-like toolbar and commandbar in Explorer.)

    • Theme (This folder contains the main theme. Run Theme.exe file to install it.)

  • Apply the theme using Desktop Properties and you have done.
  • Also make sure you have patched the "uxtheme.dll" file to allow 3rd party visual styles (in case you are using Windows XP sp2 or sp3), if its not patched, then download and run the UXtheme Patcher.
