Windows Dream Vista 2 is the sequel to Windows Dream Vista, which was created by the same author. It released almost a full year after, on March 23, 2013, and was added to the archive on August 9, 2022.


The bootleg is a modified Windows XP SP3 ISO. It is the sequel to Windows Dream Vista. It has less Vista elements than the first one but has more variety, including different themes. The WPI, as well as Beauty Tools, have been removed completely. A simple program installer (with new programs differing from its predecessor) packaged into the autorun, and all of 2 customization utilities take their place. Speaking of the autorun, it has been updated with a new look.

The ISO was made using nLite, and the autorun was made with AutoPlay Media Studio
