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

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, each deviations are published with a copyright and a date, see for yourself...

This is for all those behaviors that I don't do anything anymore on dA

ap-graphik Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2013
Hi, which one ?
peter729 Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2013
I don't know why but the Start Menu items font on the right side is black, so it make very hard for me to see them. And on screenshot i see that the font is white. Any idea why this is happening?

Awesome :D
misterdaylove Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2013
thanks for this lovely theme.
GreenCat77 Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2013
Very nice description! I love how it was understandable English (and not "ENGRISH"). Also, it's very nice that you pointed out the flip of the 32-bit and 64-bit folders. Also I like that you provided links to the other things you used to make your's so great in the image. I think this theme looks great and it's very nice and minimalist. Also your SteelOrb looks cool, too. I am very happy with this theme. :D

Kidding me? [link]

ap-graphik Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2013
It's even written in his description...
ap-graphik Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2013
What do you want to report ? the fact that this is the original work made 2 years earlier ? :D

The one you link is a mod of my theme made with my approval, so I'm not sure what you thought...
8000860 Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2013
I'm not sure who was first... but this is one of my favorite themes and I asked the DeviantArt to check this situation ;)
ap-graphik Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2013
Look on the right, the date is here : April 22, 2010 (yes, 3 years ago...).
Anyway, he asked and I gave him permission, and on top of that, the copyright I am using (the same as the mod) allow this kind of thing.
Everything is written.
8000860 Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2013
I'm sorry! You're right! This theme is an original one...

On the other hand it means, that this theme originally was my favorite so long time... but I didn't know about this :)
ap-graphik Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2013
And I'm glad you like it
