Windows 7: Msstyles Issue, selection color clash =/

16 Aug 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit)
Msstyles Issue, selection color clash =/

In an attempt to create my first custom theme, I seem to be having an issue with the selection box [blue by default]. Editing images 601 - 604 aswell as 629 - 631 did not have the effect I was aiming for. I have win7 home premium 64x. After a bit of research I have turned up nothing. Thank you for any insite in helping me resolve my issue. ohh and image 629 was the effect I was seeking.

Are you trying to change the mouse over on the navigation pane on the left?
Are you using the default aero.msstyles to edit or a custom third-party theme?
If it is the default one #601, 604 should have been it.
Zip up the .msstyles you are editing and post it here and I will look at it.
