: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:

Is there any way you could upload a version that has the start menu search bar? I understand that you removed it for aesthetic resons, but I really can't use the theme without it visible (despite still being able to search with the windows key). This is a beautiful theme otherwise, and good work.  If you really don't plan on putting out a version with search, is there a program I can use to try adding it myself? Thanks.

I've been really busy with work lately, so likely not for a while even if I were to do it. If you wanted to take a stab at doing it yourself you'd have to use Windows Style Builder, although it's a paid product: This would also apply to your second question below.

Let me add to this. I have Restorator and can edit the .msstyles file, but without any previous experience I'm not sure how I'd re-enable the search bar. Any tips? Also, if I wanted to change the color of a selected application on the task bar (say, from green to blue) I can just change img #987 and #988, correct? Thanks.

does not work at all. did everything step by step, the only thing that works is the start orb. if there is a solution, i'll change my mind about it

Of course it works, you're obviously not doing something right which is actually pretty impressive considering the instructions are as clear-cut as they could possibly be. Do you really think my theme would have almost 20 thousand downloads and you're the only person bitching about it if it "doesn't work at all"? Here's your solution: try using google. There's an idiot proof install video on youtube that's right up your alley.

Sorry for the over the top passive aggressiveness, but comments like this really piss me off. I also couldn't care less whether or not you change your mind, I owe you absolutely nothing. Don't spam my thread with crap caused by your own stupidity.
after searching and searching for the best windows 7 theme i finally found it. Great work buddy! God Bless you.
This is the most freaking perfect theme i've ever used!

Can we expect a Win8.1 version in the near future? :)
