Style 7 (create windows 7 themes)

Hey Every1!

Style 7 is a Windows 7 theme generator. It uses the default Microsoft Aero theme as base and generates a new theme using blackbox styles. Blackbox styles are created with a single, simple, human-readable, configuration file. Thousands are also readily available for download on the internet.



You will need UxStyle Core or UxTheme patcher to run the Unsigned Themes created by Style7.

Warning!

Please be very careful when using these file patchers.
Make a system backup before proceeding.

There have been numerous posts of people unable to login there systems after using these.
The makers know about it and have some kind of a workaround on their site,
but nevertheless, don't take any chances. Make a full backup.

Browse the "themes" directory, where you installed the application.

Ok & Apply button sets the selected theme to load

Did that... it just shows a pop-up (creating theme) for about 1-2 seconds then nothing happens... I'm still using my Unsigned Visual Style of Choice (Soliq 7 at the moment)...
