7Pro Final for 7 by krissirk 7Pro Final for 7 by krissirk
my first theme for windows 7
- You need a patched system for using theme : [link] or : [link]

- Place the 7pro.theme and 7pro folder in your x:\Windows\Resources\Themes folder.

- For the StartButton you have to replace Explorer.exe in your Windows directory. if the explorer.exe don't work, maybe because a windows update, use the Windows 7 Start Button Changer: [link]
you have many great start button here at DA: [link]
if you want to use my start button, open the explorer.exe with resource hacker: [link]
go to bitmap folder and save the 6801 bitmap in your desk and use it with the start button replacer.

- Replace the explorerframe.dll in your x:\Windows\System32

** wall's:

 sorry , double post

Hello. nice theme and great work.

I would like to bring my contribution, so if you want to replace "%windir%\explorer.exe" (%windir% is a system variable and means that windows will replace it with the actual path to windows install folder) and "%windir%\system32\explorerframe.dll", access to these files is going to be denied because they are in use. The answer to this problem is easy, start the copy process and when windows is denying access leave that "retry/abort" window open,  right click on taskbar, start taskmanager, go to processes tab and kill "explorer.exe" process (localize it in the window, right click it and choose "end process") in this moment go back to copy window and click retry and copying will be completed. This operation has to be done for both files to be replaced.

Thanks again.

I've been using this theme for the longest time. After every Windows clean install, I immediately use it again. It's simply beautiful to use. It causes no weird effects. No bugs. I love it. Thanks for making it and sharing it! Cheers!

I've created a Firefox persona to match 7Pro, check it out linked below. Great theme, by the way, I've been using it for years now.…

This is what I get with the 64-bit explorerframe (which goes into System32 folder) and the theme. Is your theme backwards... do I put the 32-bit one in my system32? I am on 64-bit Windows.

Thanks! Great theme, wish I could get it to work. This is what I get:

I installed a theme. But for some reason I can't install other ones, such as this one. Even though I followed all instructions it doesn't work.

Have you ever given any thought to making this borderless? (à la some of the Placebo styles) your darks are just perfect for readability, but placebo's no-border look is pretty hot.
Shukro Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2012 it very much

I can't seem to get it to work. When I choose 7pro in the personalize tab, My windows changes to windows classic theme instead... I have Installed the uxstyle, Sopied the explorer frame and explorerframe.dll files and placed the 7pro files in recources. Any one has any idea how to get this thing to work?
TheManNamedJewk Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2013
Yeah I had the same problem to make it simple just download universal theme patcher from softonic it'll give you the necessary files uxstyle is doesn't seem to do the trick.

not work
EricPettis Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2012
So I've replaced the x64 explorerframe.dll into both the System32 and SysWow folders. I have also changed the orb to the little orange rectangle that you have, however now that I have done all of these steps to apply this theme to my Windows 7 it is not working. Could someone please tell me why this is?

theme's great btw :)

Thanx. :3
zerdengecti Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2012
Everything about this theme is great, I applied it to my computer as soon as I got it yesterday and I plan to keep it forever - if I can solve a problem with some icons. The Token pack includes some icons for chrome and some other applications but Icon Manager isn't letting me change them. As a result half my icons are black and the other half are yellow (windows default), I could live with that but I'd really like to make my taskbar icons black (like in the pics above). Could anyone help me with that?
