Sounds like progress, I am also uploading the ones I have for my Vista Ultimate x64 setup which should work in the same manner.

Unfortunately my ISP has not uncapped my speed yet even though they were meant to over 3 hours ago so I can only upload at 8Kbps and it's at 10MB out of 72MB so it may take a while.

I'm going to bed shortly so I will just give you the link to my Skydrive and they all have the build numbers dll's for the file names eg. 7127 dll's, so shouldn't be to hard to find.

OK, I've got your link stashed for when I'm ready for the bits (just incase you dont wanna keep the link wide open). If it works I'll check out the vista ones too, I've got it on triple-boot so no worries!

One more very important thing you will have to do is clear the icon cache, located in your user name/AppData/local/IconCache.db to see the AppData folder you will need to set the folder options to show hidden folders.

I used both of these on 7231 32bit. Computer kept restarting during bootup. Went back to my original shell32 and booted fine. Deleted icon cache and logged off. Folerders and icons changed. So just using imageres changed my folders and some icons for me My desktop folder shorcuts did not change. They were still the Aeroshine folder icons. Easily fixed by deleting and recreating the shortcuts.

I had minor issues with using shell32 from the Win7 theme Aeroshine. The shell32 from that theme broke explorer's save dialog. So on my next build install, I just tried installing imagres and not shell32, but none of the folders would change until I booted with the shell32 just once from that theme. Then I went back to the original shell32 and folders and icons were still from Aeroshine.
