DreamScene Hacked To Run Under Other Vista Versions

It was almost inevitable that someone would attempt to hack Windows Vista’s Ultimate Extras to run under versions of Vista other than Ultimate. Now its Windows DreamScene, the software which enables you to run video wallpaper on Vista Ultimate, which has been hacked to run on all versions of Vista, from Basic, to Home Premium, to Business, to Enterprise. I’m shocked they could get it to run under Basic; you’d think it required the Desktop Window Manager.

Naturally, Microsoft issued a takedown, and anyone who posts links to the hacked package is just asking for trouble. Still, I’ve already found a copy, so if you’re truly desperate… Also, no word if this runs just DreamScene on other versions, or DeskScapes, too.

I think this might be fun to do, but it’d be far more useful to hack the Desktop Window Manager to run properly under Vista Basic, including Windows Aero and Flip 3D. Next thing you know, someone’ll hack the Texas Hold ‘Em game to run under other versions, instead of something more substantial.
