Windows Aero is dependent on your graphic card. It is not something that can be downloaded and forced to run. If your system doesnt support it, that is due to a hardware limitation. It has nothing to do with the software.

Or upgrade to Windows 7, which has software-based Aero even on older systems :smile:
