Artist's Note

Windows 7 theme + applications

Just finished, and am too wasted to see if anything isn't right... wanted to get rid of the windows feel as soon as possible... lmk if you see anything.

P.S. I've switched to StrokeIt (an OS-wide gesture engine, tiny and well-coded), so window state controls appear only on hover (if I ever need them).

Have a lucky day everyone | v

do you need a programm for it to install it?
and do you need to patch uxtheme.dll?

Yordi, for the theme itself no program is needed to be installed, it's an msstyle + edited explorer.exe (start button) + some fox tweaks. The theme dlls should be patched, like you said.

Btw, some really nice w7 themes are starting to show up at deviant (listed at vista section for now). I predict there be huge number of those due to this insane w7 popularity.

with the explorer.exe
do you need to replace the original explorer.exe so you cant choose the explorer.exe that i had be4?

You only need to replace the start button bitmaps there:

After that it'd be wise to restore the original owner and permissions:

but most people skip that step from what I see.
