    It doesn’t seem to be working on my Win7 Pro 64-bit
    I followed the steps mentioned above couple of times but it doesn’t work.
    After copying the files to Themes folder, is there any step that I might be missing? I usually go into personalization and select the newly installed theme. Am I doing something wrong here?

      hope you copied the files through the correct path (i.e in “C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\” (Asuming that you’re Windows 7 is installed on partition C))

      Confirm that you copied all the files and you are following the correct method…it just worked fine for me…
