I am getting an error message when I go to download this. Possible there could be some kind of corruption going on in your bootskin.

I like the dragon images and the fill effect used to fill the interior of those images but I'm a little confused as to what makes this "Vista" dragon.
No vista globe or flag logo, the progress bar is an XP style progress bar, not vista style.

Don't get me wrong, I love vista themed bootskins, I just don't get what makes this a vista themed bootskin other than you including "vista" in the name of the bootskin itself?

You have no bootskin.ini file in any of your bootskins. Bootskin needs this file in order to apply the skin. You should delete all your bootskins, add the .ini file, test them, as they are they will not even show in list in bootskin. Then reupload when they work, and you know they work properly by appliing them and rebooting your system to test them.

I found a somewhat simple way to make it work.
1) Download the bootskin.
2) Go to where you saved the skin and rename to change the extension to .zip
3) Extract all files. *The index.ini will not extract since it is corrupted*
4) In the map where it is extracted create a new file and name it bootskin.ini
5) Type the following in the file: bootskin.ini (it is best to copy and paste)

Name = "VistaDragon"
Author = "???? ??????? (Rahul29)"
Description = "2 Dragons in white,green,black"
ProgressBarX = 259
ProgressBarY = 450
ProgressBarWidth = 120

6) save the file.
7) create a zip file from the files: bg.bmp pb.bmp bootskin.ini
8) change the extension of the just created zip file to .bootskin
9) install the bootskin like you normally would.

I can't garrantie that it will work, cause i can't change my bootscreen what soever, not even with the alternate versions, but the preview seems to work fine. I could be wrong a pixel or so on the progress bar, please bear with it, till the original creator uploads a fixed version.

I only did this because it seemed like such a great bootscreen, I apolegize if you feel I am being inconssiderate, rahul29.

Hope this helps some people

if the bootskin doesn't work, remove it from the site, allowing people to download it to find out it doesn't work, doesn't help anyone and asking them to finish the bootskin using your instructions above isn't an ideal solution. Fix it, uploaded the fixed updated version and voila, problem solved. Let's try to do it right, and save people from alot of wasted effort. �
