question abouy vista

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Quick question about Vista, i just installed vista build 5270 server and i was kind of surprised. I have been reading all the talk about how cool Aero is but mine just comes up with a windows 2000 like theme. I have looked around the theme and color scheme options and all there is is to revert it even further back to a windows classic theme. Anyone know how to enable aero?

If the server version of vista is anything like Windows Server 2003 then you need the enable the "Themes" service... Go into Control Panel->Administrative Tools->Services and then find themes and turn it onto automatic and then u should be able to use themes other than the windows classic one.... Good Luck

(Out of the box, I almost guarantee you don't have the right drivers...)
