:pat: If you like my theme, please donate!

Windows 8 version coming soon.

Update April 28th:
Windows 8 sound scheme
Bug fixes

Theme includes:
  • Custom wallpaper
  • Custom start button
  • Custom explorer frames
  • Custom logon background
  • Custom metro cursors
  • Custom Windows 8 sound scheme (new!)
  • Fully styled explorer shell ui
  • All necessary customization tools

Basic theme installation:
  1. If you haven't already, patch your system with included 'UniversalThemePatcher'. (X86 for 32 bit systems, X64 for 64 bit systems)
  2. Restart your computer (or logoff)
  3. Copy 'premiere' folder to C:/WINDOWS/RESOURCES/THEMES
  4. Double click the 'premiere' theme file to install the theme

Optional but seriously recommended:
  1. Open up 'Extras' -> 'Explorer Frames' and double click 'InstallTakeOwnership' (you can run 'RemoveTakeOwership' afterwards if you want once we're done)
  2. In the 'Explorer Frames' folder, open the appropriate 'xxBIT' folder for your computer and copy the folder(s) to C:/WINDOWS
    ^ you will need to right click and take ownership of the applicable files in C:/WINDOWS and rename them '_old' first if you get any permission errors
  3. Open up 'Extras' -> 'Start button' and run 'Windows 7 Start Button Changer v 2.6' as administrator and click the start orb to change the image 'startbutton.bmp'
  4. Open up 'Extras' -> 'Logon' and run 'TweaksLogon' to change the logon background image to 'PUREMINIMAL.jpg'
  5. Restart your computer
  6. Enjoy!
  7. If you do enjoy, please donate. It costs me $$ every month in hosting costs providing you guys with this theme. Anything helps.

Please comment and :+fav:

Feel free to ask any questions if you've got 'em.

Enjoy! :peace:

Hey, I'd love to give it a try but I can't seem to be able to download it, cause when I click the downloaded link, I get en error "Website is offline". Is host down? Any other way to get the theme? Regards

I really like the theme but I can not get the .theme file to run.. I click it.. like any other theme file, and it brings up this advanced options window.. I'm sorry, not meant to sound stupid.. other themes worked, I am patched. I did install the extras ;_;

Edit: I'm an idiot, found it.. was clicking the wrong file... They look alike!
I really love the theme though, thank you so much
I'll head over to the donation and give you an amount for the annoyance, not much but every tiny bit helps right?

Great work really, using the whole scheme now!

Hope you can design a brighter version or a version with win7 default window color scheme, so we can adjust its color and transparency in our own command.
