    How to Apply Custom Themes in Windows 7

    How to Apply Custom Themes in Windows 7

    For a video tutorial on how to do this please visit this thread: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    This will show you how to apply a custom theme from deviantART as your theme in Windows 7.

    Here's How:

    1. First you will need to click on the Download button below to download and install either the 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) patcher (auto installer) for your 32-bit or 64-bit Windows 7.

    2. When downloaded, unrar the file using WinRar or similar, and run the exe.

    3. Select your user interface language

    4. Click OK


    5. Then click yes when this box appear.

    6. Then you need to patch these 3 files (As you see i already have mine patched) Click the patch outside each file, after patching them all reboot.

    7. Now you need a custom theme, there's a lot of those here on the site so just find one you like [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]


    You can also find more themes on Deviantart, but make sure they work with windows 7.
    They need to be unzipped first.


    8. Now navigate to the Windows folder, find the folder called resources and click on the themes folder. (C:\Windows\Resources\Themes)

    These are the files that has to be placed in the folder:

    9. Then paste the folder and theme provided, then the theme should appear in your personalization menu

    Note: The files are not named the same in all themes. It’s different from theme to theme. What you need to place in the resources folder is a .theme file and the folder with the same name (the folder is where the msstyles is in)
    Also, in most themes there are only 2 files (a folder and a theme file), but in some cases there can be more. The process is the same though, you will just have more variants of the theme available via the personalization menu.

    Good luck [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Re: How to apply custom themes in Windows 7

    ***Careful with Windows 7 Enterprise***

    I download the patch utility. Patched all three files, rebooted, then on the login screen it says please wait, so I do, then about 20 seconds later screen goes black, then comes back and it will do this over and over again. The blue default login screen for Windows 7 is visible for 5 seconds, then screen goes black for 2 seconds, and a repeat cycle. Could not get logged into Windows to undo changes.

    Luckily I had a restore point and restored my system back using Ghost 15. So I tried again to see if that was the actual issue causing it, sure enough same thing happened again. So if you have Windows 7 Enterprise installed, this will crash the system and does not work.

    Any alternatives to try by chance? Thanks.

    You could try VistaGlazz but I don't know how much luck you will have with that because I think it changes the same system files, or there is another method to custom themes that doesn't involve changing any system files.
