Windows 7: Transfer old Windows Classic display theme to Windows 7 machine?

28 Dec 2013   #11

Windows 7 Pro 64 bit

Just when I thought there was no luck leftover for me to ever retrieve my long adored classic-based desktop theme, I stumbled upon this thread from more than a year ago! I just pray Bongo or someone as wondrous can help me too!! Since having to replace my XP tower with a Win7pro one, I've been trying to recover the .Theme file from my old hard drive to no avail. My problem sounds identical to the one in this thread that DrJoanie endured last year. I get the message I can't apply it to my Win7 desktop, and can neither find a way to so much as check its settings. I'd be so happy if only I could just at the very least salvage the textured wallpaper I had as I've found nil remotely resembling it anywhere. Is there anybody out there who can take a look at my .Theme file and/or assist me with applying it to Windows 7???

Many, many thanks!!!
