its ok i have tried it and uninstalled it with no problems the softpedia review sums it up they where right about it

* The Good

It lets you build your own package to replace the default Windows look and it also provides a set of choices to select from, most of which compatible with Windows 7 and some designed for XP and Vista.

The currently applied pack can be loaded in the editor and adjusted to fit the user’s needs. The changes cover every aspect of Windows interface, from looks (background image, logoff screen, folders, fonts, etc.) to sounds.

The Bad

We waited quite a while for the editor to load the currently installed theme. The lack of the “Home” button makes navigation back to the main menu a bit uncomfortable. Also, we could not find a way to replace the Start orb.

The Truth

Despite the minor issues CustoPack is the perfect solution for replacing the one-year old Windows 7 looks with new graphic elements and even sound packs. The customization packages in the gallery affect both the look and feel of the environment and can be modified for an even more impressive appearance.*

It's just a measure to ensure that newly created packs are shared with the community, I guess.
Nobody prevents you to switch altered dlls the "old fashion way" tho.
After all, that's where all the premade packs come from you can download on that webpage.

Just think of it as some kind of reinforcement of the community idea

Looks like they will be using their on-line-gallery advertising to finance the software and have added a clever restriction to gain a constant supply of new free content from the users

ISODisk

Hey Brink,

Please add to your ISODisk blurb that it does NOT work with 64-bit editions. The warning on the linked site is easily overlooked (or at least, in defense of my frail ego, I maintain it is). Please let us know if you run across a 64-bit program that will mount ISOs.

Thanks.
