JavaBrain: I use this skin all the time as well.. there is wallpaper to go along with this as well as a logon. the logon you might have to do a couple touches to it cuz i think its in another language.. dont remember. but they aren't called "blackcomb" so u have to look for them

Well, actually, I _do_ like blue. I just like green more.

I love the skin if was not for the enable/disable check box where not missing from the advanced portion of ie 6 and WinXP folder options.

That's strange. If I know what you mean, they display correctly here (fully skinned rather than being that strange flat version), but it may be that's because I have a later version of WB - I don't remember them being skinned before now, so perhaps that was added recently.

It rocks, but I wish I could find WinAmp and SysMeter skins for it. <sigh>

Hmm, in the taskbar it doesnt seem to blink like when I have several IM windows open I cant tell when I get a message, other than that I would use this skin all the time

jardragon: Yeah - this is a problem with WB. It doesn't properly define an "alert" image. Instead it uses transparent. Unfortunately, transparent is also the normal image for this skin . . . so nothing happens. I'm talking to the developer about this - if something comes out of it, I'll update the skin if necessary.

I applied the IE.reg file and now I can't get rid of the light blue-ish color on the menu bar from Explorer and My Computer, running WinXP.. I manually removed the reg edit but the color still remains even after I apply other skins or go back to classic windows, that color neve goes away. Wondering if any one applied this and does it work. I applied this because I thought their was white text in IE but it was items not being skinned that was just a simple upgrade to a new version of WindowBlinds.. Please Help.

That's strange. All that file should do is change the IE colours so that they are visible. Try changing things around in IE/Tools/Internet Options/Colors...

You could switch to Windows Classic in Display Properties and then click the Advanced/Other Advanced Controls buttons and see if any of the colours there correspond to the blue colour - if so, try changing them. Also check that you've not set an overriding colour in the Advanced dialog.

If none of that helps, please send me a screenshot of the problem at greenreaper@hotmail.com in JPG or PNG format with any info you think might be relevant (like registry dumps of those areas the reg file changes) and I'll see if I can duplicate it.

I found the problem. What does this file do "Blackcomb.uis_ToolBarBackground.WBD" I was unable to edit the file because its data type is Binary, but before I found the following in my Registry:
"BackBitmap"="C:\\Program Files\\Object Desktop\\WindowBlinds\\Blackcomb\\background.bmp"
"BackBitmapIE5"="C:\\Program Files\\Object Desktop\\WindowBlinds\\Blackcomb\\background.bmp" I have gone ahead and removed them and now everything is all good..

Heh. And I was just about to suggest that (although I didn't have much confidence about it). <g>

OK, well not sure how that happened (perhaps WB didn't remove the skin completely on unload) but it's great that it's solved!

For all those running non-XP versions of Windows, there is now an Blackcomb ObjectBar skin at http://www.wincustomize.com/skins.asp?library=4&SkinID=141 - enjoy!
