Here it is But remember this: I am not confirming this works on newer builds than 7100, and if you install it on a newer build, it is your own Responsibility!

Dont forget to create a restore point before attempting it. Also, it has some bugs in it. Like, there's difficult to replace the explorer.exe process and minimize and maximum buttons sometimes works the other way.
P.S. : Also, if you get the instructions to install it, lemme know.

Hey that's amazing. I will try that tonight. @ Sergio: I tried that theme however i was unable to replace explorer.exe and shell32.dll even after taking ownership. May be that theme is just for Win 7 RC and not ready for the RTM.

win 7 ultimate
 
 

Having quite the trouble getting this theme to work (alkhan one) on my win7 RC 7100 build. Ive done all the steps the tutorial says. Leopard Theme for Windows 7 | tech-Know kishan I've tried both programs to take ownership and able to rename the explorednameframe.dll and shell32.dll. But when I try to paste the new dll's from the download it doesn't copy over. Same with the explore.exe. Ive reformated 3 times lol. Each time I though I was doing something wrong and I am, but not obvious to me.

Greatly appreciated any help since I love this them.

I'm 100% sure that there will be a working replica of the OS X Dock coming soon.
