Can I install Icon Packs designed for Build 7600 to Build 7601?

An Icon Pack was saying install on to 7600 only and after I checked my regedit, I learned that I have 7601 (Probably SP1, I don't know).

Would I have any problems if I install the icon pack?

Thanks.

Several, including Windows 7 x64 Ultimate
 
 

You can normally install icons anywhere you like, on any machine or system which uses them, they are merely small graphics of various types. Unless the "Icon-pack" is using software to install something else, ( in which case be careful what it does), you can install it anywhere.

Some "Icon-packs" make extensive changes to system files, are dependent on the system to which they are installed, and best avoided.

IMHO I would only use icon downloads from Microsoft.

At best, these non-updated files simply won't work. At worst they can leave your PC unusable.

Theme, icon packs with installers that aren't updated are best to be avoided.

Manually applying icons may be slower, but is a lot safer.

Yep, that's SP1.

Not sure . I like to change it manually ..... which works in all the situations .

Taste it . First go through the tutorial Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup carefully, and have the backup . Then apply the iconpack you want . If it troubles, restore the backup, otherwise keep it .
