Creating a .NET 3.0 Aero Wizard for XP SP 2

As a followup to <a href="http://discuss.joelonsoftware.com/default.asp?dotnet.12.432077.5">this</a> topic, I've upgraded to VS 2005, got all the things I need installed to run WPF on XP SP 2... and I can't find a decent working code example of how to implement the Aero-style wizard in C#.

Sadly, MS's AeroWizardDemo project in the WPFSamples zip file (which can be downloaded <a href="http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=22b58b6c-8f98-40d0-880d-c3339c5da01e&displaylang=en">here</a>) doesn't appear to actually be an Aero Wizard... at least, not  like the kind as described <a href="http://msdn.microsoft.com/msdnmag/issues/06/07/BeyondWinFX/default.aspx#S3">here</a>, which is the style I want. I did find <a href="http://weblogs.asp.net/kennykerr/archive/2006/07/12/Windows-Vista-for-Developers-_1320_-Part-1-_1320_-Aero-Wizards.aspx">this example</a>, but it will apparently not run without dwmapi.dll (which is on Vista only... I'm on XP SP 2).

Can anyone point me to a working C# project example? Thanks!
