Hope that helps out
Sorry, but that software is rather useless

It is only able to insert a .theme file into the right directory. It is also required to have a folder in that directory, which you have to move in there manually, so i can't see the point of using this software to move one file then move the folder to the same directory manually after. I guess it's good for replacing system files tho, but i wouldnt reccomend using it for it. Best done manually.

bit harsh huh dude - wasn't expecting that - I just found it today right before my post - hardly useless - it works for me as I always unzip my themes into the resources folder - and yes I use it mainly for system files - lot quicker in my opinion. Just wish it had another line for changing imageres.dll as well. Don't see how doing it manually is any better - not everyone is into all the ins and outs - some people just want an easy hack! Nough said

People it's there if you want to use it - no ones forcing you - to each his own

Sorry if i came of a bit harsh
Anyhow, i am 100% more comfortable doing my customizations of system files /replacements of system files, manually, rather than letting a program do it. But thats only what i prefer, i can't speak for others (Does this application even create backups of the files it replaces?)

For system files it's fine, but for it to work as it was intended he (the author) should find a way to make the application able to put the folder inside the directory as well.
Just my personal opinion

It's all good Sergio - I tend to do that a lot my self - LOL
When I do my own which I usually do I find myself with a whole bunch of .dll files saved from other themes. Hell I think I have 6 imageres.dll saved in the windows system 32 folder. It does back up the originals it says - so this would be safer for me.

Anyway..............peace

I have installed a fresh copy of Windows 7 64 bits RTM Build 16385.

Now, I did not patch anything yet. I was just trying to backup the original files.

In system32 and in syswow64 I have both themeui and uxtheme files.

For my themeservice.dll, it is not in system32 or syswow64. The only themeservice.dll file I can find on my system is here:

C:\Windows\winsxs\amd64_microsoft-windows-themeservice_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_none_05f77252e20d9cfd\themeservice.dll

Is that possible?

Thanks

I do not understand. I just checked my other laptop, in which I also just reinstalled windows 7 64 Bits from the same disk, and the System32 folder CONTAINS the themeservice.dll file.

Somebody could shed some light on this?

OK I know why. I am using XYPlorer and it does syswow64 redirection. What a pain.

All good.

Ok. The final question is: On my Windows 7 64 bits system, do I need to replace the files in the syswow64 folder too?

thanks
