Yosuga no Sora | Windows 7 Theme

Nov 14, 2010

Here is the promise Yosuga no Sora Windows 7 theme that I mention from previous XP Theme. Not sure how many of you like Yosuga no Sora, but anyway if you like then use it. Credit go to the author - Taste, you can also visit Taste blog for other theme ^^.

The theme is similar to other Windows 7 theme that I share before, if you not sure how to use this theme, please go to this guide for the step. But you are require to do a extra few step to get it work, please read below step as well.

After you download the package, a compress file. Inside got a Installer and a 'ShellChange (fixed).rar' file. To install the theme just execute the Installer or you can go to the guide for the step. During the installation, at the last step, you will require to wait for 20second for the close button to appear, unfortunately, this installer a bit buggy, and you wont able to see any close button (refer to below picture).

So what you need to do is, you unselect the installation windows (press you desktop once), then press the installation window(above picture) again, then hit your 'Enter/Return' on your keyboard, then it will start the final installation.

Before you do the ShellChange step, please extract the 'ShellChange (fixed)' and copy the files that inside of that compress file then paste it into the theme folder - C:\Windows\Resources\Theme\'The Theme'\ShellChange (or follow this guide to go into that ShellChange folder). After overwrite the file, just follow the guide to execute the 'ShellChange.exe' file.

FYI, this 'ShellChange.exe' is to help you exchange the theme 'explorer.exe', 'ExplorerFrame.dll' and 'shell32.dll' with the original 'explorer.exe', 'ExplorerFrame.dll', and 'shell32.dll' so that it can display the folder background and so on. The ShellChange is actually similar to those Windows Theme Installer, which allow you to replace the 'explorer.exe', 'ExplorerFrame.dll', 'shell32.dll' and etc file, but ShellChange is more convenient because it automatic replace it for you ^^.

After you execute the 'ShellChange.exe' successfully, you will see some changes on your window (refer to above picture), a black box border show in the window. When you see this mean the ShellChange is working fine. Don't ask me why got the border, this theme is like that. Please be remind that if you no longer like the theme, don't uninstaller it right away, do the restoration for the ShellChange first or else the black border will stay forever, you can read this step to restore the ShellChange.

The ShellChange "Access Path Denied" actually use me around 4 hours to find the problem >.<' (countless restart and restore, but thank to the power of VMware), then the script fixed by the leader of Team Zero fzhsow (the ShellChange also created by him). This patch actually is not yet release ^^, so guy you should be happy. The only problem is dunno why their Windows 7 has no problem to use it (before fixed version), but we got the "Access Path Denied" problem. Oh well, who care as long as now we can use it. Anyway credit go to fzhsow for the fixed!

If you want x64 version please read at the comment, Chass has uploaded the x64 version :). Thank Chass ~

The solution for other Windows 7 theme ShellChange will be coming soon >.<'

Chass 16 November, 2010 02:01  

dammit, another theme installer for x86 only...

Anyway, I unpacked it and edited them so that it can run in x64. There's no longer any need to wait 20 seconds, but there's two error messages at the end. Just press ok, and it should work fine. Note that I never used the shell change though..Also edited the fatefan one for x64 and removed pw..

The only problem is, I removed the uxtheme patcher, so just use UXTheme Multi-Patcher 7.1 beforehand or something...

Here are the links for x64 bit installers for this theme and the two fatefan themes...no wait, no password :)

Yosuga x64

bakemonogatari x64

ToHeart x64

Ya, so far not supporting x64 yet, but soon will but dunno when. Thank for the x64 release Chass ^^.

Chass 17 November, 2010 06:02  

yep, it seems like OEM laptops nowadays only come in x64 Win 7, so I just did it lol

Not Fair 17 November, 2010 16:16  

ya,now adays most OEM also come with x64. Since now the theme not yet had x64 support, need to you to modify the installer ^^.

BTW, how to convert the installer? or after you install then u use those installed file and compile again into a installer?

Chass 27 November, 2010 03:46  

no, actually, the problem is not in the theme files themselves. It's on the integrated dll patcher that's only for x86...I just removed it and edited the .iss file to accept x64 architecture...

BTW, I looked at Taste's blog and it seems he's got some nice themes...Wanna tell me how to find and dl them? (since I can't read chinese, I just saw screenshots that's posted recently XD)

Chopinzzz 22 January, 2013 16:26  

Please help me...
I've installed the theme thoroughly, though the folder background, start menu background and the other features wouldn't change except for the desktop image and the black border. Though now, I changed my win7 theme back to the default theme, however the black border won't disappear... I think I've missed a step or so, I've restored the files with ShellChange, but the black border just couldn't disappear! Is there any solution to this?? Or maybe explain the issue that the folder background and features wouldn't change after patching and all?? Please help, help is truly appreicated.
