Windows 7: Vista Style Builder, error

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
 
 

I tried as in the pictures above, and all i have now is the Aero Arial themes.
I think i give up. It's to complicate for me.
All i wanted is to change the right click - desktop font / size / color
And maybe in the future, the taskbar / title bar colors.
Thanks a million, anyway.

Dont give up after you get it it will be easy then. Did you start with a copy of aero theme ?
Did you rename all the things to Leopard test ?
Did you put the modified theme Leopard test.mssytle in there to replace the aero.msstyle in Step 6 of the screenshots ?

Okay, i'll try again, and after i'm done, i will put here some screenshots.
I hope, this time i'll fix it the way i want.

But before i do that, please tell me which themes from the image do i have to modify with notepad ?
Snow Leopard folder and the other 2 SL files ?

The Snow Leopard Window Theme file the bottom right one 1.87kb that one is OK
you need to edit the aero one you copy to your desktop with note pad.

I try again, now.
So, i have now ( copy ) on the desktop the files + the 1.87 kb SL file.
There is 1 folder called Arial. Inside are 3 files : 1 aero file and 2 folders -> shell and en-US
And another aero file, which is 1.85 kb
So, i have to start with the 1.85 kb file, first ?
And then, SL file ?

OK lets do is 1 step at a time we will get it
#1 get copys of the 2 folder + file in screenshot
marked in red & put them in a new folder on your desktop , open the new folder & take a screenshot & post it for me. Then we will do step 2.
