I'm uploading to my web site a first beta version of eStylerLite for eComStation.


If you are using the GRADD video driver you also need


Read the readme.txt file for more details about it.

This version will only work on eComStation!

This version features:
- enhanced titlebars (solid color, image, gradient)
- enhanced push buttons (various styles)
- Windows keys support
- enhanced shutdown (APM + reboot + program list)

-1) I'm willing to know how the shutdown feature works.
-2) Please disable overlapping features of other enhancers to avoid conflicts
-3) If you are using Styler/2, after the eStylerLite installation, before rebooting, you have to modify your OS2.INI file (see readme.txt for more details)
