How to patch 64 bit to use theme for 32 bit

I saw this theme from a person I follow on instagram that I found at devianart but it's for Win 7 32 bit. She did tell me she had to patch her 64 bit to use this theme. Does anyone know of a good/reliable site that would have a tutorial for this? Here is the link to the theme that I'm referring to. Pink Leo Theme for Windows7 by ~HardStyleKitty on deviantART

Other than the explorerframe.dll of the theme you can use the rest in both 32 bit and 64 bit systems.

Welcome to the Seven Forums

The only thing that makes that just for 32-bit is the explorerframe.dll all else will work just fine. Use Archie's suggestion above to enable the custom theme.

Thank you, I did try this but it's still not showing up in my themes menu. When I tried the patch program I chose the 64 bit (because that is what I am using), should I have chose the 32 bit instead. I don't understand why it's not working. I followed your instructions exactly.. Any more ideas?

Did you put both 1 Pink-Leo folder and 1 Pink-Leo.theme file in C:\Windows\Resources\Themes? If not do so.

Then it should show up in Personalization under Installed Themes.
