Updated 01/05/2011: Major update. Bug fixes, new images + new description & preview. This is the final update.

Updated 15/02/2011 (2nd time): Minor Update. Some fixed bugs on the dark styles.

Updated 15/02/2011: Major Update. New dark versions, changes to original versions and more. Also added a new preview image.

Theme Information:
Here it is, the final release of my latest visual style for Windows 7. I hope that you will enjoy this theme as much as i did creating it.

The VS is based on ~emey87's concept and comes in 2 versions: A light version, and a dark version. Be aware though that the dark version is not completely bug free. This VS also uses the theme resource changer software which is created to make your life easier. It simply enables use of system file images without having to replace your own system files. Download here (x64 and x86)
As it only works for some system files i have had to include the timedate.cpl as a normal system file. Both x64 and x86 timedate.cpl is included for both the light and the dark version. The system files included is only for SP1.

:bulletblue: On how to apply this visual style, see this tutorial

Download Includes:
:bulletblue: Celestica Visual Styles (4 in total)
:bulletblue: Explorerframe.dll and Shell32.dll (Only available through the Theme Resource Changer, read more above)
:bulletblue: Timedate.cpl (4 in total)

~emey87 for the concept "Celestica" which this theme is based on
~MrFolder for the wallpaper used as the default background on the light version of Celestica
~Maegondo ( for the wallpaper used as the default background on the dark version of Celestica
!xFino for the monitor used in the preview
Dave Senior for all his help and his WSB tutorial

A big thanks also goes to out to all my watchers and friends on deviantART.

Enjoy this release, and remember that your opinion is important to me, so please speak it :)
Even though i might not thank everyone for faving' this work, i truly appreciate if you do so!

Celestica is one of the most downloaded and searched Windows 7 theme. If you search with celestica theme this page comes at the top. It simply shows the public acceptance and popularity.

Sergio creates arts, not visual styles. Minimal, light weight and perfect. Creating a VS takes a huge time and effort and Sergio with his in born talent handles it perfectly.

Celestica is one of the best creation by Sergio. The perfect color combination, alignment of the elements makes it one of my favorite Windows 7 theme.

Thanks Sergio, continue the good work. We can expect some web designs, WordPress Themes from Sergio in future in addition to the VS.

It shoukd. I'm not 100% sure though as I haven't tested it on that version of Windows 7.
