Windows 7: Windows 7 Explorer TreeItem doesn't retain textcolor:color value

Windows 7 Explorer TreeItem doesn't retain textcolor:color value

Hello again after a period of absence here,

Wonder if someone could help me out as I'm having the problem outlined in the thread title.

Am using Win7 Style Builder and trying to set up the Explorer TreeItem color as specified in this tutorial.
After changing the TreeItem textcolor:color to my liking and testing it in Win7 Style Builder everything is OK.

But when I quit testing in Win7 Style Builder and save the msstyle the setting is gone.

Any ideas as to what causes such bahavior? Help is really appreciated as I have been strugling with this for a couple of days now and couldn't find any clues here nor there.

OK, never mind that.

Have learned that the shellview.dll file has to be modified or copied from other theme.
