DirectSkin from Stardock is the fastest and easiest way for developers to give their applications an exciting interface while differentiating themselves from the competition and the default Windows® appearance.
DirectSkin Windows customization enables you to highlight your brand and unique product image. Use DirectSkin to apply style elements to give your application a look and feel specific to its purpose. Integrate DirectSkin into your application with as little as four lines of code and dramatically reduce your development time and costs.
DirectSkin easily integrates with all major programming languages that support ActiveX (COM) controls including; .Net, C#, C/C++ and Visual Basic.
DirectSkin works on the following Windows platforms:
32-bit Windows 8/7/Vista/XP/2008/2008R2(except Terminal Server)
64-bit Windows 8/7/Vista/2008/2008R2
Using the popular WindowBlinds technology at its base, DirectSkin has already been used on millions of PCs ensuring your skinned application will work on a wide range of operating system / hardware combinations.
Another advantage for developers is DirectSkin extends existing Windows controls and APIs. This means that they will not have to use proprietary APIs or controls to make their application skinnable.
