Soft7 2.0 by ap-graphik Soft7 2.0 by ap-graphik
FINAL

2 System files included (SP1 compatible)
4 Wallpapers included

32bits and 64bits compatible
Taskbar on Bottom, Top and Left compatible
Window Color available (It's supposed to be without. Apply the theme again if it appears blue. Corners may have problems if you use it !)




INSTALL :



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 2.0.theme" & "Soft7 2.0" folder) into C:\Windows\Resources\Themes
and double-click on Soft7 2.0.theme
Then restart Windows in order that everything take effect ! (or only the explorer.exe if you know how to do it)


To change the navigation buttons you have to change your ExplorerFrame.dll :
Windows Theme Installer by Kishan-Bagaria
(Works only for the explorerframe.dll in "System32", so perfect for Windows 7 32bits. However, for Windows 7 64bits you'll also have to change the second explorerframe.dll (32bits) manually in the folder written below)



For 32bits Windows 7 :
Explorerframe.dll 32bits > "C:\WindowsSystem32"

For 64bits Windows 7 :
Explorerframe.dll 64bits > "C:\WindowsSystem32"
Explorerframe.dll 32bits > "C:\WindowsSysWOW64"



Yes, these are the right folders ! 64/32 and 32/64 :)



I use [link] for a small shadow above the superbar

Doesn't that easier to use Windows 7 Navigation Buttons Customizer or similar soft? The VS is awesome +fav :D (Big Grin) 
Can you publish the navigation buttons so i could use it with the Navigation Buttons Customizer?

declanchans , it just depends on wallpaper you apply on your desktop. Wallpaper used in the screenshot of this theme is SoftGreen, which is included in the pack :)

Hi, I like your theme very much. But after following all the steps, I found that the task bar wasn't the same as you shown in the picture. I appreciate if you can let me know how to make it done. Thanks.

This might be a sily question, but I'm new here. How do you change the default icons on the left bar in explorer - the ones not under favorites (I've managed to change those). How do you change the icons of network, my computer and all the drives under there? Thanks!

According to you, Taskbar on Bottom, Top and Left compatible. Why can't I use it on the right part of the screen?

Hi, because it would require a new version, just for the right, and there were so few people to request it that I never did it.

If you try it, you'll see that the picture that deals with the items on the taskbar will be backwards and misplaced. Sorry about that :/

ap-graphik Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2013
I'm glad you like it :)

Soft7 was mainly done for Windows 7 and its aero, but more importantly, I have to admit that I'm no longer a fan of transparency and everything being grey and light. And I also think that there have been other themes on dA, after Soft7, that have made a better job than me ^^ I mainly think about Radiance ( minhtrimatrix.deviantart.com/a… ) for example.
When I look at Soft7 now, and my karé icons, I don't like them as much as when I did them :D

And I'm now under Windows 8.1, which has nothing to do with aero :/

I still work on mock-ups from time to time, but I absolutely can't promise that they would someday end up being made into an actual theme. I think about a way to show some of them but I'm not sure how much people would be interested...

I just tried Radiance. I decided to install your theme afterwards. I like yours more, not that Radiance is bad.

Thanks for the theme. I don't foresee switching until I finally move past Windows 7.
