Windows 7 Pro 64 bit

Welcome to the forum.

Those DLLs are different for a 32 and 64 bit OS and are by no means interchangeable. A 32 bit process cannot use a 64 bit DLL and a 64 bit process cannot use a 32 bit DLL. For a 64 bit OS you will need to create 64 bit versions. 32 bit DLLs go in windows\SysWOW64 while 64 bit DLLs go in windows\system32. I know it seems strange but that is the way it is.

Please note that I have no experience with creating themes and have no interest in doing so.
