To properly change a system file you need to take ownership give yourself permission and rename the old file and then copy in the new one look at Post #6 of this thread will tell you how to do it Basic Networking Information
Yes, I definitely have the right folders open, in fact I am copy/pasting the folder paths from this tutorial here: How to Install Custom Themes by =neiio on deviantART
("Explorerframe.dll Location" section).
All I did was install this registry key: Add “Take Ownership” Option in Files and Folders Context Menu in Windows XP, Vista, 7 and Windows 8 - Tweaking with Vishal
, right click the files and clicked the newly added "Take ownership" option, then renamed the files, then tried to copy/paste the ExplorerFrame.dll from the Elune theme.

Excecutables use C:/Windows/System32 all the time for years. 32 bits are redirected to C:/Windows/SysWoW64 transparently... they don't even know
What copy program do you use?
I am using TeraCopy, but I believe it is the x64 bit version of TeraCopy as it's in my C:/Program Files folder, not my C:/Program Files (x86) folder.
