Maestix Visual Style by Metalbone1988 Maestix Visual Style by Metalbone1988
Maestix Theme, a mod of Kiko11 theme Oscuro…

I made it just for my rainmeter maestix suite and wanna share with you, i have permission of kiko11 to upload it so just enjoy it :)

Now supports W7 SP1 32 and 64 bits, just put the correct explorerframe for your SO.

2 Variations. Black and Transparent Dark
I recommend the one called "Maestix2" that is the Transparent Dark version… for the minicons of the bar… Panel Bar Icons…

Update 1.1: The menu is ready, more stylish :)

Update 1.9: added a preview of some changes in update 2.0 coming soon

First of all, thank you very much to all. I've been busy with college and because of that I've been a little disconnected. I have to say that I've been working in the visual style to try to change some things in my opinion did not fit with the rest. Although I will not upload the theme, I'll upload a preview of the things that have changed so you can review them and so to adjust some things. I hope to see your comments :)
Please make it for win8/8.1

Ok, I fixed it. I think, if someone says this is not correct regarding to the functionality of the vs please tell me.
Basicly I run sfc /scannow. It fixed whatever it seemed necessary, restoring original files. After that I used the universal patcher to allow usage of custom themes. After that I renamed the ExplorerFrame.dll into ExplorerFrame.dll_ (from System32 and from SysWOW64 folders). I copied the explorerframe.dll you provided both in System32 and SYsWOW64 folders. I switched to this theme. At this point the navigation pane does not work. Now comes the weird part. I rename the current explorerframe.dll files into ExplorerFrame.dll_mx (both system folders). Then I rename the ExplorerFrame.dll_ to ExplorerFrame.dll (both system folders), basicly restoring explorerframe.dll to the original one. I restart explorer.exe and now everything seems to work. The theme works, the navigation pane works so I guess this is it.
I hope you guys understand what I did, if you did not, it's a bit late and I'm tired so... my bad :P
I have found another bug. If you have utorrent, opening a folder from utorrent returns with an error: "class not registered" and it does not open the folder.  Most likely the folder class or something similar is edited and is not opened correctly anymore.
So far I have a partial/stupid fix for this. The navigation pane doesn't work in some applications (Office Suite, Adobe Reader and so on) but works in Notepad and in normal Explorer windows. The only way to get a navigation pane is to start the apps that don't work in compatiblity mode with windows xp sp3. That's not a solution though. Browsing the web a bit more, it seems this is not the only theme with this problem and it seems other themes dont have this problem. If I cant find a solution soon, I'll have to find another theme :|
I have the same problem that orels1 has. It's impossible to save any files like that. Unless I want to write the path every time I want to save them. There is no address bar, no up button, making it impossible to use. I've seen this in another theme I tried. Is there a fix someone found? Is there anything one can do about that?

Omg, I've been wanting to mod Oscuro for a while since it's one of my favorite themes, but you beat me to it- and I must say, it looks wonderful!  Really liking this!  Thanks for sharing!
Someone stole your work.…

By the way, great theme :D
Are you able to make it so that the non-transparent version has highlight selectors? like for example, if you go into Windows Explorer (using the Maestix2 theme) that it highlights where you are e.g my pictures, but if you're using the normal Maestix theme it does not highlight anything.

I just don't like transparent themes really and I really like this theme!
I'm getting a weird bug on my start menu search bar…

Anyone else getting the same? How did you fixed it? Thanks
