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 !)
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
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!
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
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...
