Star Trek LCARS visual style for Windows 7 by GTJLCARS Star Trek LCARS visual style for Windows 7 by GTJLCARS
This is a Star Trek LCARS visual style for Windows 7.
You can use it for the 64 bit and 32 bit version.
It contains the visual style files, the GTJLCARS Screensaver and the correct fonts.

This visual style needed more than one year to be developed. It contains the currently only LCARS visual style which is available at all. The Style set is Freeware.

Please read the installation manual first:

Then download the style set here:
[link] (the site is German - but I think you will find the download button anyway ;-) )

Some features in the preview are extended files which you can also find on my homepage here:
(Currently there isn't an English manual for this extensions - but it comes soon...)

Sorry, but I can't put the download file into the customizations area of deviantart because my download file contains a selfextracting zip file.

Big thanks for this, very nicely packaged and explained too!

Being on a 64-bit win7, I didn't do any of the extended file stuff. I've just had the chance to test it briefly atm, but I wanted to make a comment anyway.

One thing I didn't like that much was the mouse pointer, it doesn't look pointy :P If you had just had the Star Trek insignia without the "background thing" on it, it would be just great (imho, ofc).

I suck at explaining, so I made a quick cursor mockup to show what I mean. It actually works pretty well imho, but it really needs some polishing. I just took your TNG icon, cut out the background and rotated it :)

Uploaded to this folder:…

A few other minor issues too, but, all in all this is really Excellent!

Now to find a suitable log-on screen (I remember having one years ago for windows XP).

As I mentioned before, I absolutely LOVE this. But in a way, that's a problem. I love it so much I want it to run on my Windows (8) RT tablet. I don't suppose you could recruit someone with DOT.NET experience to help you port it over to Win 8? I might suggest DarkEagle2011. He seems pretty knowledgeable of Win8. To be honest, you could make a fortune. Right now the #1 Win8 app is a little entertainment app of LCARS. It doesn't do a lot, but the developers are making a mint. A complete theme and style makeover would be an instant success. I know I would be the first to buy!

I have been a Star Trek Fan for 50 years, and have always wanted an LCARS interface. I had one for Win98, but it wouldn't work for XP. Been without ever since. I luv ya, man! This is AWESOME!

This is amazing! What software did you use to build this skin?

This is excellent work! I do have a few issues here, though.

1. When I maximize a window, the title bar breaks. It is no longer full thickness, and the rounded end beside the close button is cut off. Experimenting with the border padding in the advanced window properties options does not fix the problem as it stretches and distorts it but doesn't affect the breaking.

2. In order for the title bar itself to be seen as not black, I have to go into the advanced performance properties, disable window composition, turn off visual styles & buttons, and then turn them back on, and Then re-select the theme in the personalization window. Even then, the task bar remains black.

If these two bugs were sorted out, it would be PERFECT! :D

Again, outstanding work!
