About the installers…
The setup process will correctly install Aero Xtreme 7 XP regardless of the drive and folder structure on your system. It will automatically detect the correct folder. If you have any trouble with the new installers, please let me know.
NOTE: The installer will be improved in RC2. I am currently exploring how to implement combo box value lists for User Pictures and check boxes for optional features.

Includes Show Desktop 1.020
The new installer will now setup Show Desktop for you so that it automatically runs on system startup. You can download the most recent version of Show Desktop here [link]
NOTE: For Windows 7 users, Show Desktop adds the option to minimize all windows instead of showing the desktop. Simply select ‘Make Button invisible’ and, optionally, ‘Make mouseover and pressed states visible’.

Show Desktop is exclusive to Aero Xtreme 7 XP. Do not package this utility with your skin. Simply provide a link to the official ‘Show Desktop’ page [link] by CeIIular.
