Logging on to Windows XP
After installing the Vista Transformation Pack 4.0, your login screen changes completely. It even says that you‘re logging into Windows Vista Ultimate.
A New Start
The menu bar takes on the Vista default coloration of dark gray. Note that the Windows logo isn‘t the circle that it is in true Vista, but rather is squashed into the area where XP‘s Start button would appear.
Vista Start Menu
Here‘s the XP Start Menu modified to look like Vista, including translucency.
XP or Vista?
Yup. It‘s Windows XP, but it looks like Windows Vista.
All programs affected
VTP will change all programs, including non-Microsoft ones like Firefox. Translucency is set high to show how much you can control it using VTP.
IE 6 or IE 7?
VTP will modify IE 6 to look like IE 7 under Vista. Note that the tabbed interface and search bar come from the MSN Search Toolbar for IE 6 and not VTP. You can also clearly see here the new Vista-like Maximize, Minimize, and Close buttons.
Viewing Files under Glass
VTP changes the way Explorer displays files. This is the detail view and you can see the new Preview image at the bottom.
VTP changes XP boxes, including the ones that appear when you copy files to appear more Glass-like. As you can see here, XP‘s flying folders are gone and in their place is the Vista glowing green bar and the banner at the top.
Not A Complete Change
VTP hasn‘t changed everything. Here you can see My Computer is essentially unchanged except for the Glass border. Lacking is the graphical display of disk space that you‘ll find in Vista.
Here‘s the Windows Security screen under VTP. It still says Windows Vista Ultimate.

Is it Windows XP or is it Windows Vista?
