I have an existing custom Windows 7 Theme and it works as is (with ExplorerFrame.dll replaced and Universal Theme Patch installed). It has a distinct Explorer background image for each type of Folder views in Windows 7 i.e. Small Icon, Content, Large Icons, Tiles, and Details. Two out of the six views do NOT have an image, while four of them do. See some examples here:

However, I want to add two background images to the above two types of views which does not have one. I use Windows Style Builder and managed to find the location of these images in the .msstyle file. Here's is what's weird: If I add an image larger than 200x200 pixels, Windows Style Builder will say "Error Testing
MsStyles File!". Yet if I shrink the image to less than 200x200 pixels, everything works. Is there an area where I must adjust the maximum image size allowed?
Here's the location of the item I am trying to edit in Style Builder. I've already imported the image but no matter what the style will NOT test or work at all with the image size I want. http://www.animesurreal.com/ex04.jpg http://www.animesurreal.com/ex05.jpg
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. This error is driving me insane and I've tried every method I can find on this forum and no luck. And I know for a fact this can be done because I have another theme with 6 distinct images. Maybe I am not using the right software? Thanks again for any suggestions!
