WMP12 64bit Customizing help

I have windows 7 ultimate 64 bit on my pc, I want to change the background of WMP. Now what I did, using Restorator 2007 changed the libraryimage 7(i am not remmbring the exatc name) with a image of my own flavour. Then Stopped a service of window media player through services.msc, took the ownership of wmploc.dll and saved the Restorator customized wmploc.dll. After this i even changed the library background from the registry to 6. Interestingly after, running the WMP 12 nothing is changed and even wmploc.dll has same default image (even aftr changing it).....I have done this background changing stuff on 32bit. But I don't know if i have to do something more in 64 bit. Hopefully Some one will help me...Thanks is advance

Actually i was customizing the wrong file.....you should work on C:\Windows\SysWOW64\wmploc.DLL

Every thing is same as 32 bit.
