I just tried it and...

1) 20% ported fine
2) 10% was all messed up
3) 70% didn't port at all

So...import what you can and do all the rest by hand lol...

You get better results if you import to Vista and from Vista to 7. Though it requires running WSB in debug mode and it's still not that great.

Yeah. It's there for creating/testing Vista's XMLs in Windows 7 and vice versa.

"...\vistastylebuilder.exe" -debug

Thing is it breaks DWM and a lot of images are missing which makes the theme bad. I could help if you want, but I've been busy.
