Fresh from the grave, Stardock delivers Halloween straight to your desktop. Our macabre desktop is packed full of ghoulish icons, unearthly visual styles, wicked gadgets and a haunted wallpaper sure to send shivers through your bones. This desktop screams Halloween and is our treat to you with the purchase of any Premium Suite. This ghastly deal ends on October 31.

If you're a WinCustomize Subscriber, you get this update completely free!  Just head on over to the Subscriber Resources section to download the suite.

So you're not a WinCustomize subscriber yet and you want the new R.I.P suite?  You have two choices, you can either purchase a subscription to WinCustomize, or you can buy any of our Premium Suites before October 31st.  Your choice.

     

This suite has been updated to take advantage of WindowBlinds 6 and Windows Vista features.

What's New: 

  • Animated Start Menu in Vista & XP
  • Vista Compatability
  • Vista-ready Icons
  • New Weather Gadget
  • New Wallpaper

What's In the Suite?

  • WB6 Animated skin for Vista & XP
  • Icon Package for Vista & XP
  • Wallpaper in 3 Resolutions
  • Clock Gadget
  • Calendar Gadget
  • Weather Gadget
 

Enjoy the super-spooky suite from Stardock Design!

Additionally, if you are a Windows Vista Ultimate user, we're releasing an Animated Wallpaper designed to go with R.I.P completely free.  You don't need to buy anything, but it sure will look good running along side the R.I.P Suite.  Grab the Dream HERE*.

*Requires Windows DreamScene and Stardock DeskScapes to be installed

IMPORTANT: You will need to upgrade to the latest version of Theme Manager from Stardock Central.  If you do not, the suite will not apply properly.  DO THIS FIRST.

and coming up with a skin or suite for a few holidays (new) should be no problem.
I spare you the pain and I'l not show you the attempts I've made at creating (or just modifying) a skin that prove you so very wrong.

One of the best suites ever offered at Wincustomize! TNX... this is the quality of subscriber suites I'd expected when signing on the Wincustomize long long long ago...

On the subscriber resources page (http://www.wincustomize.com/subscribers.aspx), look to the right.  You will see a list of premium suites.  RIP 2007, XP Augustus, Kryptonite & WC Select.

The names of each suite are a download link.

I love this theme but I keep getting an error with Windows Explorer crashing when I try to open something minimized to the taskbar or in the start menu. When I went back to another skin it doesn't do that. I have Vista Home Premium.

Just wondering why this doesn't show up in SD Central on the Wincustomize tab like XP Augustus and Kryptonite do? I don't mind downloading them from the link, but since I launch SDC almost everyday to check for updates anyway....   Also, don't click on the preview picture - nothing but a trick there! lol

Looks great, thanks again for the free suite!

I agree totally with Gollums. It would be much better if RIP 2007 AND WC Select showed up in SD Central. I am currently an OD Elite (for a start this name makes me sound like a W**ker), SD Central and Wincustomize subscriber. I would much prefer to download these from SD Central. This simple task shouldn't take the mighty IT gurus at Stardock too much time and effort to set up. PLEEEEEEZE!    Commander Phil

It would have been nice if the Desktop Gadgets were also included as Sidebar Gadgets for the Vista users. Any chance of this happening for future releases?

Thought I would share this Vista SP-1 compatibility issue.

Yesterday I was doing some testing with Vista SP-1 beta 1 and discovered that all three widgets in the R.I.P. suite fail to run under the service pack. They run just fine on the same system before the upgrade, but none will launch either from the Startup or when executed manually.

Really like it but it really messes up firefox, the menus at the top are strange, and the bottom task bar all the text is black, making it unusable, for me at least

Sorry, couldnt attach the screenshot as I dont have anywhere to host it

Not seeing that here (FF, vista)
You can always host an image at imageshack.us

I had some bad menu action in FF when I loaded teh Magic suite.  Closing and opening FF resolved.

Have deleted the rip2007 now (however doesn't imageshack need a registration?), gone over to magic, strangely that's perfectly fine, and I can use it after the end of the month Pity though as I liked rip2007 other than the black task bar at the bottom (or whatever you call it? Status bar? Also all of the dialogue box options (yes/no/cancel etc) were all black background/text for everything
