Windows 7: I can't change the background of folders. How can I fix that problem?

I can't change the background of folders. How can I fix that problem?

Hi mates,

I have a theme called "Creator's Tiger Black 7". I was editing this theme and I've done good things but there's a problem with putting an image to the background of folders. Windows Style Builder doesn't allow me putting an image to higher of the following values "e.g. 200x200 pixel". And
If I enter a value higher than those values it gives me an error and I can't even preview my theme. I tried to do lots of variations but I couldn't fix that problem. For example, I deleted some of images from the theme etc. But it didn't work nevertheless. So, how can I fix that problem? I'm putting some captures of that problem and also the package of that theme.

P.S. I've already patched my windows with Universal Theme Patcher and Explorerframe.dll

My Theme Link : http://www . mediafire . com/download/4fve3rwpdz76m9i/My_Theme.rar

With all respect.
