Windows 7: Active Progress Bar Help Needed

Active Progress Bar Help Needed

I must be missing something somewhere. It doesn't matter how many times / colours I change the progress bar to, I always end up with colour fringing on the "active" progress bar (Image 707).

I'm looking for a kind soul who's managed to change the colour of this progress bar without the colour fringe showing up.

The colour I'm after is R,G,B = 108, 21, 5 . HTML = 6C1505.

Thanks in anticipation of someone solving this annoyance!

Hi Neutron,

Attached msstyles in a zip.

Could it be I'm missing an alpha channel or something? (707 in Restorator and ResHack)

TIA fimble

Confirmed - file is the problem.
I have tried yours on the first screen and on the second screen I have inserted confirmed moveover file into the same theme of yours. Also you can find working files in attachment (I have converted red from blue).

Just an update if anyone should stumble across this.
Don't try to manually change the colour.
Use the Hue/Saturation method to do it.

(Using Photoshop).

And before I could request this thread be marked "solved", it was!!

Well done up in the Gods area!
