How to Make your own Windows 7 Theme Pack

It's because of the RSS wallpaper. When I install you themepack file, it asks to "Download Attachments" to setup and configure the RSS feed. The RSS feed will have to be configured on the computer first before it will work. Not sure about the screen saver unless it's part of the RSS as well.

Name:  RSS.jpg

The themepack would work automatically if it was just a normal desktop background image instead of one through a RSS though.

I created the theme so that people who like my photography can install it and their wallpaper will be a slideshow of my photographs which automatically update with new photos and their screensaver will be a screensaver I created with my photographs.

Is there any way I can get it working with the RSS feed?

Thanks for your help.

I never used a RSS feed, but it looks like if you clicked on the "Download Attachments" option, it should start working.

It doesn't :/

The RSS it points to is ClaytonJamesPhotography's Photobucket Wallpapers 1280x768 album media
Does anyone know if this feed should work? I know almost nothing about RSS feeds...

Has anyone successfully created an rss feed? Can anyone else help me? Thanks a bunch!

Hello Bonggo, and welcome to Seven Forums.

They are listed in this registry location:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Wallpapers\Images

The default ones are coded, but you should see the extra ones listed in the right pane of "Images".

Hope this helps,
Shawn

to delete the location/menu called DesktopBackground

I was able to get the theme working with the RSS. I guess the way the RSS is in Photobucket isn't compatible but when I did it through frameit it worked. Now my only problem is that the screensaver isn't working. For some reason it seems like the screensaver line doesn't work unless it's one of the Windows defaults. Any user-installed screensavers don't seem to work. If anyone is able to figure out how to get a custom screensaver to work please let me know.

Either way, I'm just happy I got the RSS to work. Thanks again for all the help!

Err, it looks like they are all coded now. There's no way to tell which one is for what folder by looking at it now. I'm not sure how to remove a listed "Picture Location" now.
