LOL Microsoft Bob!
Comment #3 Monday, September 2, 2002 8:00 PM
Yeah, that is what I thought... I wonder why nobody else put it together??

At any rate, enjoy.

downloaded all the bits but my XP said I had an error that said try again, When I went into Winstyles there it was but same error came up.
Any suggestions?

I say "Excellent" because the THUMBNAIL looks great, however, like francis52, and others whom I'm sure have not bothered to comment, I'm receiving an error message, telling me to reinstall simplykids%20 - or some file name like that. I'm writing this after 4 times trying to reinstall. What gives?
Comment #6 Monday, September 2, 2002 10:23 PM
is it just Simply Kids that is getting an error? WinStlyes 1.3? Did anything install? Did you reinstall WinStlyes? Do other themes give you the same message?
Let me know so I can help.

I hv the same comment as Abbot and francis52. But I must say i have it with other themes also. So could it be winstyles ?
Comment #8 Tuesday, September 3, 2002 1:48 PM
Yes, just the Simply Kids file that is getting an error. Wait, let me check ... yep, Winstyles 1.3. No, nothing installed after receiving this error message. No, the other themes all install correctly. And, in case it helps to know, the following is my System Information: (with the following currently open ... IE6, Windows Media Player 7.1, the Light Blue theme, wallpaper, Zone Alarm Pro, and McAfee Security Center.)

Oh, and yes, not only did I reinstall WinStyles, but the whole bundle of software that comes with Object Desktop.

Yes, I know what the problem is. The SimplyKids Icon Pack was made a long time ago. It does not work like newer versions of icons. So it might give some of you guys a problem. For those of you who are having problem here are the links:

If you are running XP and can get this to work, post the many steps, which must be required. Please. Thank You.
Comment #15 Tuesday, September 10, 2002 5:15 PM
I cant get ti to work either.....do I need to buy Desktopx? (
Comment #16 Wednesday, September 11, 2002 6:21 AM
Yes, you have to have DesktopX as well as Iconpackager and Windowblinds.

If you have Component Manager then just download DesktopX.
Comment #17 Sunday, September 15, 2002 1:18 PM
after I downloaded it, it wanted me to purchase Desktop X as the trial ware version would not load it. Is this right?
Comment #18 Saturday, September 21, 2002 4:42 AM
If you do not have DesktopX then you have to get it. If you already have Component Manager then you can just download DesktopX. If you do not have Desktop X then try to use the trial version although I am not sure it will work.

The image you see here in the screen shot is mostly DX objects and animated buttons. So you will definaitly need DesktopX
Comment #19 Monday, October 21, 2002 10:54 AM
Sounds like this one isn't any good...Maybe I shouldn't try it
Comment #20 Tuesday, October 22, 2002 1:41 AM
I download this skin cause it looked cool. Now i had to download the wallpaper. I thought the skin was part of the suite. I was hoping the icons i ws seeing would also work. I see when it installed it didn't have this wallpaper and the icons i see in the wallpaper aren't in there either. Is there a problem or is this the way it sould be.

Nice Skin...Al
