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!
