    This would depend from system to system & the fields you set up within the program.

    I'm running W7 x64:

    Wow. I really like this utility. It has a lot of stuff I have been looking for since moving to win7 and dropping RivaTuner and Speedfan from ordinary usage. I have been using gadgets, and they work OK, but I like this better I believe.

    Can you share what you used resource hacker on? Was it to modify a skin? I messed with it a little bit, hoping I could modify the labels, especially the Temps/fans/nics, but it did not seem to work. Any resources or infos you can share on what you modified?

    Sul.

    EDIT: I really like this tool. Using resource hacker I modified some of the xml strings to be shorter and not muck up the display quite so much. There are some variables assigned so you can't re-label everything. Overall though, I much prefer this to the gadgets I was using. Thanks ever so much for including the screenshot with this in it!

    You can change any of the RGB values to get the desired result;) Highlighted below is the background colour. Best way to find out, is to modify them yourself. Also note, that i have removed all other skins from the script.

    The below values are a 'Select all' & paste from the script.

    Code:
    <SkinSetXml><SkinSet><ThinWindow numOfSkins="1"></ThinWindow><ThinWindow_0 name="Custom"><windowBg R="41" G="41" B="45"></windowBg><windowFg R="94" G="94" B="94"></windowFg><compFg R="132" G="132" B="132"></compFg><compDisabled R="76" G="76" B="76"></compDisabled><groupBorder R="132" G="132" B="132"></groupBorder><text R="234" G="224" B="221"></text><textOutLineSpecific R="33" G="33" B="33"></textOutLineSpecific><sliderBg R="68" G="116" B="165"></sliderBg><listHeaderBg R="109" G="109" B="109"></listHeaderBg><listHeaderFont R="255" G="233" B="0"></listHeaderFont><listBg R="221" G="221" B="221"></listBg><listFont R="0" G="0" B="0"></listFont><listAlternate R="238" G="238" B="238"></listAlternate><counter01 R="68" G="116" B="165"></counter01><counter02 R="0" G="255" B="0"></counter02></ThinWindow_3></ThinWindow_0></SkinSet></SkinSetXml>

    Plenty of others have added to his work as well -- search "Token" then refine it by clicking on Customization, etc.

    You might be thinking of the original, "Dark", version. He didn't make the "Light" ones until a few weeks later IIRC.

    Closer. None of it's my work. I might do something for Rainmeter, if I end up using it, but that'll be about it.
    In case anyone's interested: digital excellence here, but I strongly advise custo newbies to image or backup first (no matter the degree of customization and method(s) used).

    Edit: Added link.

    Nice wallpaper, btw. It's looking a bit as Stellarium that I like using as a screensaver right now.

    Current. Traditional taskbar placement only because it looks a little off in the better locations. Hope to see this VS fully skinned in the final because I'm too lazy to do it myself.
