Windows 7: Custom Themes, Icons and Start Buttons.

Just manually installed the 7264 dll's on 7600 x86.
Your shell32.dll put windows in a boot loop like it did in 7131.
Then I used the RC1 shell32 from Milosap's (spelling?) areroshine theme and it changed all icons to yours without breaking the save dialog like it did in earlier 7 builds.
I'm sure that if i changed back to the original shell32 from 7600 that your icons would stick. I may try that later.

Hi Klaw117, I can't see why not if Mr GRiM is happy with it & if he is happy with how the installer is performing.

@ Everyone:
If you have installed Mr GRiM's Icon Pack using this installer and have not yet commented,
please let us know how it went!

I'm happy with the installer and I used it with the new modified dll's for 7600 but I was wanted to know which icon windows is using for default for Blueray drives so I can replace that one too.

Another problem with 7600 is that there are different versions of that particular build so may have to modify it for each one, all I have to do to make it work with a newer build is change the version info so it not that difficult.

Sean if you want to release the others that you made I say go for it or if you want to try modifying the version info as well for a particular build.

Here is the version info for 7600 the first leak, 6.1.7600.16384

I havn't put any other zips together as yet but it's just a case of replacing/updating the dll's in the zip and editing the txt file in the zips root with the build numbers.
(so it's just a matter of minutes to create ones for other builds)

One of the reasons for not doing the other builds as yet was just incase you wanted to add extras, I noticed the Blu-Ray icon in the theme thread.

It's 5.26am here now and still need sleep but once I have slept I'll go searching for the 'Blu-ray' icon resource.

Could/Would you be so kind to come up with an icon for the floppy-drive pretty please?
(I know.. ancient tech lol! )

LOL, that was just the version info for anyone who wanted to modify the custom dll's from 7264 using Restorator to make them valid for 7600.
