During the installation of Vista Transformation Pack you’ll notice a common theme – repeated warnings that it could seriously damage your system. If you use your PC for work-related tasks, I would not suggest trying to install this program. If you’re willing to take a bit of a gamble, go for it. If you do give it a shot, make sure to create a System Restore point first.

Installation Tips

  • disable your anti-virus software before you start
  • shut down every possible program
  • when asked what you want to enable, choose it all
  • try Arial as the default font
  • cross your fingers

    1. A buggy resource hungry piece of junk software, looks impressive to start with but slowly the systems functionality is crippled.
      Three different machines i have tried this on, and with the same results on all 3 boxes, the beginning of the end is signalled by the loss of the seach option from the start bar, swiftly followed by loss of control panel and desktop/background utility.
      If you really wish to make your system look and somewhat operate like Vista then my choice would be Vista Inspirat.
