How to enable Windows 7,8,8.1 for custom themes

Most of the time I get messages ,emails that “your theme doesn’t work” and I always tell them to show a screenshot and 99% times they didn’t have their system patched properly.

I am gonna make this simple for all the guys out there who want to install custom themes and other stuff with ease!

OK let’s get started.

The first thing you gonna need is to patch the windows so that you can install custom themes.

If you are on windows 7 home basic or Starter then you will need this software to enable Aero otherwise none of the theme will work and you will regret that even after completing every step as instructed the theme didn’t work.

So next step for Windows 7 will be that most of the themes on windows 7 needs theme resource changer installed.What this little software does is you can add explorer frame navigation images and other control panel images in the theme folder so these images will load as soon as you apply the theme. ( you don’t need to edit dll files )

Next on windows 7 if you need to make your explorer windows and other applications transparent then go check this post

If you want to customize icons then you can get this 7tsp software.There are many icon packs available on the net which you can install using this software or you can even try my application iPack Builder which does the same job but is faster and much more user friendly.

To change the logon screen on windows 7 you can use this.

I think we are over with Windows 7 now we’ll talk about 8 and 8.1

So after patching you windows with above mentioned software ( bullet point 2 ) you really need to install OldNewExplorer what it is and what it does can be found here.

Next if you want to have a start menu on windows 8 and 8.1 just like windows 7 then I really recommend using this. Most of the themes on windows 8 and 8.1 are nowadays compatible with this startisback software you will have your start menu also skinned with your theme.

If you want to install icons then you again use 7tsp or iPack Builder

That’s all the information that you really need to become a Pro at installing themes.

P.S all of your themes are located at C:\Windows\Resource\Themes

Nox iPack : Windows 7

FOR WINDOWS 7 ONLY—

windows 8/8.1 version is here

*Note: Since Windows 7 is more customizable than Win8, this iPack patches quite a few more system-files than the Win8 version does. Please report any bugs.

Included in the .zip you’ll find a text-file with instructions about re-naming both the included Nox Win7 iPack and the Reload Icons Cache tool. Due to deviantART’s policy concerning executable files, I’ve had to give this installer and the icon-reload tool the temporary “.ee” file extension. You’ll need to change that extension for both files to an “.exe”…so that the files will then become ‘Nox Win7 iPack.exe’ and ‘Reload Icons Cache.exe’…

Note: Please take the time to read through the License Information during setup, as there are some important tips along with other useful info.

Change files on reboot

You might have came across the situation that you want to delete a file but it’s in use so you can’t! I have a solution to that which I would like to tell you, it’s useful and pretty simple though.

All you gonna need is regedit.exe

Let’s say you want to delete a file say shell32.dll which is located at C:\Windows\System32

-Just open regedit.exe from Run. Navigate to :

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager

-Create a new value PendingFileRenameOperations of type REG_MULTI_SZ  (Multi string value)
Write:

\??\C:\Windows\System32\shell32.dll

Just this! What this will do is delete shell32.dll from C:\Windows\System32 the next time you restart your windows.

If you want to add one more schedule then just enter 2 blank lines and type a new command just like above.

Just like you delete the files you can also change the files on restart.

Consider you want to change shell32.dll in C:\Windows\System32 on next reboot with Shell32.dll located at D:\Somefolder

Type this:

 \??\D:\Somefolder\shell32.dll !\??\C:\Windows\system32\shell32.dll

In case you don’t like typing the whole thing in regedit then you can also use a software Movefile by sysinternals.
Download link for movefile.

 

Have a look at my PendingFileRenameOperations:
