That's because it isn't in the Globalization folder.

Try:

windows\Globalization\mct

Yes. Globalization only has two sub-folders, neither is MTC

Ah, found the secret. "Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)" needs to be cleared. (Solution was in http://www.sevenforums.com/customiza...en-themes.html posting)

That is SO COOL!! I found the hidden themes just like the video describes. So has anyone here tried it with the RTM versions? Just curious if I'll need to keep these notes for later.

Or better yet, someone should put this in the Tutorials!!

Got my vote!
