      This neat little tool installs a service called UnsignedThemes and allows you to install custom Visual Styles in Windows Server 2008 R2. No patching of any system files, no overwriting potentially risky dll’s, no fuss. Simply run the msi installer, place your custom Visual Styles into the Windows/Resources/Themes folder and choose them in Personalization. Easy as 123 😀

      The zip file contains both 32-bit and 64-bit msi files. You will need to run the 64-bit msi file in Server 2008 R2.

      Enjoy!

      With the UxStyle service running, you are free to install custom Visual Styles designed for Windows 7. One of the very best is called Ribbon and it is based on Windows Live/Office 2007. It works well in Windows Server 2008 R2 build 7600, with Aero enabled. It was designed by Jordan MacGrady and can be freely obtained from DeviantArt at:

      I have attached a preview of the style.

      Here is another great Visual Style for Windows 7/2008 R2.

      It removes:
      – White gradient in upper corners of window frames
      – White diagonal stripes behind all aero glass (window frames, taskbar, etc.)
      – Dark smoke behind the start orb and clock area of the taskbar

      It also replaces the default green vista like animated progress bar with a new blue animated progress bar that better matches Windows 7 light blue colour scheme.

      The theme makes Aero look much better against dark wallpapers.
