*yawns* (I'm tired) Anyone have a start-button set that is basically a blue/grey (or dark) version of the original start button?

With kind permission from Mr GRiM, I thought I'd make an install script to make the installation of the excellent 'Mr GRiM's Glossy Blue Icon Pack' a lot easier for everyone.

It's a couple of batch files that run without aid from any other third-party applications. It runs from within your current Windows 7 setup without the need to boot into another operating system or without the need to enter Safe Mode either.

Here's the contents of the "README.txt" file...
Note   Note

I MUST stress that everyone who decides to use the installer should manually creates backups of the files affected themselves, just as a safety precaution with the script being new.
(The script does create backups and a System Restore Point but there is no harm in being extra safe!)

The affected files are as listed in the Readme.



'Glossy Blue' Download links:

Build 7100 X86 - Download -
Build 7100 X64 - Download -
* AIM problem now fixed!

Build 7264 X64 - Download -
Build 7600 X86 - Download -
Build 7600 X64 - Download -


'Black Glass' Download links:

Build 7600 X86 - Download -
Build 7600 X64 - Download -


New!- 'Ultimate' Download Links:

Build 7600 X86 - Download -
Build 7600 X64 - Download -
(Note: The 'Ultimate' Icon Packs have been compressed using 7-Zip, these files can be opened using either 7-Zip or WinRar.)


Note   Note

If anyone is trying to update or re-install and cant re-run the install because of a 'Already Installed' warning it's because the 'Delete_Backups._cmd' isn't being renamed automatically,

To fix this just rename the file 'Delete_Backups._cmd' to 'Delete_Backups.cmd' in the 'Data' folder and run it as admin.
(or use the download below in this note and run that as admin.)


(If you've downloaded the icons in the past and don't fancy re-downloading the whole pack, here's the new 'Cleanup' script separately, just place it in the 'Data' folder and run.)



(Other builds will be available shortly!)
Don't forget to thank Mr GRiM if you like the icons, their his icons and without him these icon packs wouldn't be available.. I just wrote the install/uninstall scripts to make the installation process easier.


Updates:
6th Aug 2009: Brand new Mr GRiM's Ultimate icon pack added.
27th July 2009: Mr GRiM's Black Glass icon pack added.
23rd July 2009: Added separate x86 7100 version & 7100 'AIM' problems now fixed.
19th July 2009: Added downloads for build 7100 and build 7600 ( .16384 & .16385 ).
17th July 2009: Icon Pack Installer updated to include icons for Floppy/Bluray drives.


Would this happen to also be an iconpackager file like the blue glossy ones?
