O.P. Windows Vista Beta 2 Question
Ok, I just recently got my dvds for windows vista. It came with a x32 and x86 i believe dvds. Did i need to install the x86 dvd to get the glass affect?? cuz in this video, the chick had the same theme as me. :S So I donno. Please tell me I had the x86 dvd because i really want the glass affect.

RE: Windows Vista Beta 2 Question
the glass affect has nothing to do with which bit OS u have its about your video card, x86 beta 2 is the better(Y)more drivers are supported along with better program compactability and it is only recomended to install the x64 based OS if you have a x64 proccessor.

so id say install the x86 version (i got it) and see if your video card can handle "aero"

I alos hope ur not planning on using vista as ur main OS:|

You don't.
I had the same prob as you. But I got it working.
Just make sure you have the right drivers installed, + the right specs.
First if you have Quicktime running close it (end proccess))
then go to Control Panel -> Personalize -> Visual Appearence -> Highlight  "Windows Vista Aero" click apply then ok it should then say applying theme.
Note:
You may have to restart the PC.
To test if it is working do this:
Windows Logo + Tab
Thanks,
Nathan

nathan, i dunno if hes actually installed it yet, i think he is merely asking which bit vista he should install, leave the instructions until after he has installed it lol

Alrighty..

Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processcor 3200+ 2.00GHz
RAM: 512
Graphics card: nVidia GeForce 4 440 Go 64M I dont know how to install the driver as it does not come up on the "Install Driver" part.

P.S. this is a laptop too.

It's funny because on the windows vista check to see if you have the requierments thingy and it said that my wireless card doesnt wont work... Then how the hell am I on the net now eah?! lol.

That list isnt updated properly,
I have a nVidia and its not on that list and mine works :S
and as long as it can do these things then its ok.

go here to download your driver vista compatibleGeForce support most off the drivers to work with vista!
just do the following... in those boxes click the following:
Graphics Drivers -> GeForce & TNT2 -> vista*

* means and the rest :P
