This Litestep theme was made to work on Windows 8 using n-modules by Erik Welander (alurcard2)

To run LS on Windows 8 I used:

- LOSI installer [link]
- LiteStep 0.25.0 "Alpha" [link]
- n-modules (included in the pack) [link]
- Visual C++ runtimes [link]

To set Litestep as default shell I changed this in the registry using regedit.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftWindows NTCurrent VersionWinlogin

Set the "Shell" Value data field to your litestep.exe path. For example: C:LiteSteplitestep.exe

Note: One problem I have using LS on WIN8 is that the WIN+E shortcut that is supposed to open the file manager is throwing me to the new "tiles homescreen". This results in not being able to get back to the desktop by any other means then a relog so don't use this command.

--- UPDATE! Found a workaround for the problem stated above. ---

Rebind the WIN+E hotkey in "hotkey.rc" to a specific path (for example: C:Litestep) to get rid of the problem and now it works like a charm.

Example from my hotkey.rc:

*Hotkey WIN E "C:UsersPatrikDesktop"
*Hotkey WIN D !MinimizeWindows

Might be you will not experiense this bug but I wanted to give you a heads up.

I'm on Windows 8 also. I set the Win+E hotkey to the GUID of "My Computer" to solve the issue.

I keep getting the missing "C runtime library" error. I'm using this on windows 8 (64-bit).

Sad to say I don't know what might be missing. I got that error on a couple of skins at random and started updating a bunch of drivers dll files and other stuff. Cannot remember how or if I found a permanent fix. For the time being I stopped using litestep on windows 8 waiting for someone to figure out more dependable modules and such before I will go back to it. If you find a fix some how please give me a heads up.

This might be helpful for usage on Windows 8.…
