What builds does this work on? Apparently, the first post says this was designed for build 7264, but someone just said it works on 7600. Is 7100 still not good for this?

It will work with 7100 but you will need to modify the version info of the dll's with reshacker or restorator for the build you're using.

Added Installer for Build 7600, works with both versions (.16384 & .16385).

Working on the download for 7100, don't know how long a wait though Klaw117.

The shell32 for 7600 make my pc reboot during bootup like the one from 7264 did. I installed the correct one for x86 manually. Definately installed properly on 7600 385. So I am back to the 7100 RC shell32 from Milossap's Aeroshine theme and all is ok.

That's strange how you're having so much trouble with these.. It's using the true Shell32.dll from 7600 that Mr GRiM uploaded for me too.

I have it running in a virtual machine and have restarted it many times over with no problems. I think Mr GRiM is actually using this version (of the dll) too on a true install (x86 version) with no problems either.


Have you tried un-installing the pack and removing the backups it makes afterwards, then try a startup repair and then re-install the pack?
I'm just thinking it might be another process that's calling shell32.dll on startup that's actually erroring out.

EDIT: Are you using Milossap's Aeroshine theme still or just the dll to fix your startup? If you're still trying to use that theme then that could be the cause maybe? I don't know if the shell32 for the Aeroshine theme has been modded in other ways. (like code changes or something)
