Windows Crystal XP V3 is an updated version of Windows Crystal XP 2006 V1, which was created by the same author. It released on August 14, 2007, a year after initial release, and was added to the archive on December 12, 2021.

When Crystal XP 2006 rebranded to Crystal XP 2007 is unknown, but it is assumed to be between V2 and V3.

Description

The bootleg is a modified Windows XP SP2 ISO, with RyanVM's Windows XP Post-SP2 Update Pack 2.1.11 integrated. Like its predecessors and successors, it themes the OS with the CrystalXP.net skin pack and adds many programs, themes and wallpapers, and updates.

After the first boot, there will be a "Please Read This" shortcut on the desktop, and as its own program group in the Start menu. Through it, you get multiple language choices for what will soon appear to be the Quran. Another button can be seen named Recommended Websites, which lead to mostly Islamic/Quran websites.

It comes with its own autorun, but this time it is just a link to optional programs. It does not have as many things as V1/V2 does.

It is unattended and preactivated.

The ISO was made using nLite and Windows Unattended CD Creator, and the autorun was made with AutoPlay Media Studio.
