- Use "Soft7" if you have your superbar on bottom or on the left
- Use "Soft7 on top" if you have your superbar on top or on the right


1) FIRST, DOWNLOAD AND RUN THIS Universal Theme Patcher IN ADMINISTRATOR MODE (right-clic > "Run as administrator"), UAC must be turned off
After patch, restart computer to take effect

2) extract content ("Soft7 1.8.theme" & "Soft7 1.8" folder) into C:WindowsResourcesThemes
and double-click on Soft7 1.8.theme
Then restart Windows in order that everything takes effect !

To change your ExplorerFrame.dll :
Windows Theme Installer by Kishan-Bagaria

For 64bits Windows 7 :
Explorerframe.dll 64bits > "System32"
Explorerframe.dll 32bits > "SysWOW64"

MOST COMMON PROBLEMS have been fixed by :
>> Install the right patch I give above !
>> Install your graphic card drivers &/or updates them
>> Download the theme again (because you own an ancient version)
>> Read the description and comments fully and carefully !!


Wallpaper included (1680x1050) : Soft7 1.8 edition
Icons in the superbar not included : karé : Check my gallery !
Icons in the explorer not included : Agua by David Lanham
Start orb not included : steelOrb square 2 by me :]
Taskbar drop shadow not included by sweatyfish


First, place your shortcut on the desktop, change icon by : right-click > Properties > Change icons > browse..... > OK > OK
only then place this shortcut on the superbar,
and now it works. :)

I want to use this theme really bad but when I go to put the explorerframe.dll 64 bits and 32 bits in the system 32 and SysWOW64 folder it says I need permission to do this and won't let me. I am running windows 7 64 bit. I unlocked the super user for windows 7 using the command prompt and tried doing it this way since I should have permission for everything this way but It still gives me the same message (you need permission to continue) Please Help!!!

Sir? could I ask how to take ownership on the explorerframe.dll? and Do I need only to replace the explorerframe.dll in System32 in x64, or do I need to replace the explorerframe.dll in SysWoW64 as well?? Because I'm having troubles on it. My Desktop seems to Hang and Lag, ever since I replace the explorerframe.dll. I need ur help ASAP.
