Windows 7: Using Themes In 7 That Were Used In Vista

Using Themes In 7 That Were Used In Vista

Hi - I have a *ton* of themes (.theme extension) that I used in Vista (customized and re-saved in Desktop Architect) that I now want to use in Windows 7. The program I mentioned, Desktop Architect, still runs in 7 but now when I apply a theme with it not all of the theme elements are applied. My question is is there a way to "import" these .theme files into the Personalization interface or do I have to go through and manually re-do the files (ie change the icon, and sound settings etc). Or is there another way that I just haven't thought of or don't know? Thanks in advance for any help.

They need to be ported. There are a few highly talented theme makers on this site here. Maybe one of them will do something for you if you specifically request something.

Between them, they've made some really awesome themes like Mr Grim's Dark 7 Ultimate (amongst others) and SergioGarcia9's Aero v2 (amongst others.)

Here is a link to Mr Grim's website.
