Björn Bürstinghaus from the German site Bjoerns Windows Blog has been in touch to let us know he has created a couple of Windows 7 themes inspired by the release of the updated previews of Windows Home Server Vail and Windows Server Aurora. I think Björn has done a great job on these so be sure to visit his site to download either the Windows Home Server Vail Windows 7 Theme or the Windows Server Aurora Windows 7 Theme .

FYI….I had to “Run as administrator” for the .exe to install the themes

Do you work with an account without admin rights?
If so I can rebuilt the .exe so that it automatically run as an admin account.

No…. its an admin acct…..I left Windows 7 UAC turned on….. not a big deal as many programs need to be “run as admin” just wanted to post for others who might have trouble getting it to run…..

I love the Aurora theme by the way…. nice work!
