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

Hope this helps,

thanks for welcoming me here

but forgive me i'm not quite understand what you mean
due to english is not my mother tongue

here's the screen shot from my registry
so is it safe for me to delete "ID0", "ID1", "ID-1", "ID2", and "ID3"
to delete the location/menu called DesktopBackground

fyi, i've installed a couple of the themes like the one i gave to you
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.
hmmm okey,
i'll try to see my friends registry to see what they have

thank you so much to give me the hint

it's worked
my friends only have (Default) and "ID3"
so i deleted "ID0", "ID1", "ID-1", and "ID2"

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!
You're welcome.

just one question :

is it possible to create a themepack that also includes shellicons like explorerfolders and such.
i have modified imageres.dll and shell32.dll, explorer.exe and more to create a custom theme, but saving a themepack doesn't include these things...

or do i have to use a different method ?

Hello MallRat,

Sorry, but a .themepack will only include the items in OPTION ONE of the tutorial.

Usually what you are wanting to do involves a 3rd party program to modify and change the skin of Windows 7 instead.

And what do you recommend ? I want to have my mods all packed together (like a themepack) that needs just a few mouseclicks to install all icons, shell mods visual styles, etc...

MallRat,

I suppose one the Stardock programs that has the features that you need may work fine for this.

Hi Shawn, great tutorial!

I have a quick question... if its been answered already, I've probably missed it...
How would the themepack be applied to new users logging in for the first time from a domain?

Domain accounts that gain local admin access, the theme copies over from the default user profile.
However, non-admin accounts, it doesnt.

Cheers,

Edit: Or, how to apply it from command prompt, if possible?

Hello Xarden,

I have not tried this with domains, but you might see if it may help.

Theme - Specify Default Theme to Load for New Users

Hope this helps,

Hey Shawn, I'm having an issue with it saving the sound scheme. I went step by step but when I import it into my virtual machine, it defaults to Windows' sound scheme. Did I miss something?
