Hi all! :D What about porting this WONDERFUL program to Windows 98 or Millenium? I already have a program that makes grey windows and the start buttton look like in windows 7! But the start menu itself is "old" :( . So I ask you: please port it to Windows 98/ME!))) I've studied the code and I think that there a few things that you should change (e.g. the register).
P.S. Russian students (e.g I) speak English fluently :mrgreen:

LOL what? :D :P You are kidding right? Classic Shell uses too many APIs and functions present only in Windows 7 and later to be ported to older versions of Windows. Luckily for you, Windows 7/8.1 can for the most part do everything that Windows 9x/Me did. :P

I apologize for asking this, but wouldn't this potentially open the door to compatibility with OpenNT, ReactOS, and/or Windows XP (all of which could aid in restoring more of the Classic Theme's usability on Windows 10 :V )?

It would be steps towards working on those systems yes; however aside from xp none of the other mentioned Os's have a sizable market share.... and reactOS is quite unstable in its current form..

Well then that's that :lol:

(What I'm really wondering about is if it'd be possible to inject Classic Shell into Windows XP's explorer run in compatibility mode on Windows 8.1, and/or 10. Same for Vista's .__________. )

So, if you can't port it, why don't you just rewrite it at least for windows xp/2000? I can launch it on Windows 98 via KernelEX)

By the way, ViStart almost runs successfully on Windows ME, but the error is about the register(((
