Win 7 Theme Installer 1.0.1.2 by Maksl5 Win 7 Theme Installer 1.0.1.2 by Maksl5
Here is the Final version of the Windows 7 Theme Installer !!!

Functions:
- Install Windows 7 Themes easily and fast !
- Browse the .wthmi theme that is created by an Themes Creator or by yourself, open it and only click on Install and done !
- It has an automatically update function, so your program is up-to-date when there are improvements !
- You can easily double click on a .wthmi file to open and install it !
- If you want to install a theme easily, use the included Windows 7 Theme Installer Builder to build your .wthmi files easily and fast ! Only drag and drop the systemfiles into the prepared fields, browse a location to save the generated .wthmi file and if you want install it directly from the builder !
Here is a video-tutorial to build your own .wthmi files !
- In Windows 7 Theme Installer click on the right arrow to expand the window and show a list of all installed Themes. Select one to apply it ! Or if you want to delete Themes just select the Theme to delete and click on Delete. Done !
- Restore your original windows files, with the Restore Default Theme and Systemfiles button. For this to work you must have all original windows files in the system directory, when Windows 7 Theme Installer starts the first time ! Otherwise every time you click the Restore to default... button, the systemfiles will be not restored to the original files, but to the files you had in the system at this time !
- It creates also backups on every theme apply ! look into the folder named backup. It's inside the program folder !

------------------------------------------------------------------

Changelog:

[1.0.1.2]:
- Added new link to a site, where you can upload your wthmi themes
- Added links in download themes section if the author is a deviant
- On a click on the theme picture, it enlarges

[1.0.1.1]:
- Fixed several bugs with opening a .wthmi file from explorer and other bugs

[1.0.1.0] :
- Added a new function to see the 20th newest .wthmi themes, that are on the Windows 7 Theme Installer Server. For this function to work, sure you need a internet connection. The max. height when it is expanded is 800px. You can zap between the themes and choose one to download and to download AND install with one click !
Please be careful ! This is still buggy ! I will add some .wthmi Themes to time !
For Theme Creators, if you want your theme is shown in the program, please send me a message with link to your theme and to a screenshot, the name, the author and the creation date ! Thanks for all people, who support me ! :)

------------------------------------------------------------------

I really wish you all best with this program and hope that i could help you !

[Here] is the portable version.

[Here] is the Theme Upload site.

Hey kann man noch irgendwie Themes hochladen? z.B. dir direkt die Daten, Screen und wthmi schicken? Hätte eins anzubieten.

Klar kann man das. Guck mal in die Beschreiben, da steht ein Link, wo du das tun kannst. :) Ich hab bisher nur Schrott bekommen, deswegen sind nur die 4 bisher dabei.
Wenn man das nicht über die Seite machen möchte, schick mir einfach ne Nachricht, mit allen Daten. :)

hi... will this work on 64-bit?
Reply
:iconmaksl5:
Maksl5 Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2011  Student Artist
The program itself works on 64-Bit systems.
It's only depending on which system files you are using.

It would be pointless to use 32-Bit files on a 64-Bit system, you know ? ;)

Anyway, if the .wthmi files are zipped with the correct system files, there should be no problem for you.

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
application or computer (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging
enabled.

For example:

<configuration>
<system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
</configuration>

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
rather than be handled by this dialog box.

Also, I'm on a fresh install.
thanks for your time and help!

It's yours how you use this programme !

When you use wrong system files, then it's not the fault of the programme, but yours !

Almost all comments here are positive. Do you realize something ?

I hope you'll get it, that you first should think about that, what you are writing.

But you have arranged me to write something to the description. :)

It's also working with Win 7 SP1.

It only depends on for which version the systemfiles in the .wthmi file are.

utp.exe is an application from Windows Theme Installer and also doesn't belong to it.

Please check that !

There is no chance to change the icons automatically (I think you mean the icons in the superbar/taskbar) into other ones, like tokens, because everyone uses other shortcuts and names, so the program can't know which icon it should change.
Sorry for this. :s

hi.. i tried changing the current shellstyle.dll with an alternate shellstyle.dll but it's not changing.. i copied the alternate shellstyle.dll and replaced the current shellstyle.dll on the theme folder and then i placed the folder on the builder theme files.. but still it didn't do the trick.. how can i change it? i'd be glad if you could help me on this.. many thanks :)

Maksl5 Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2010  Student Artist
what does the shellstyle.dll change in the theme ?
Are you sure it should be placed in the theme folder and not in the system32 folder ?

jamijam Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2010  Hobbyist
shellstyle.dll changes the folderband.. the current folderband is autohided but when i put the mouse over it, i cant push the buttons or window goes insane like hide and show and so on. So i figured if i use the alternate shellstyle i can have it hidden instead of using the autohide. or if you could help me fix the autohide.. and im not sure where to place it really..
Reply
:iconmaksl5:
Maksl5 Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2010  Student Artist
so first you have to place it in the /themefolder/shell/normalcolor/ folder.

Then drag the themefolder into the 'Theme Files' - field. Sure, the other files, into the provided fields.
Then Build the file and install it.

If this does not work, then check, if the shellstyle.dll is realy modded.
