Because Windows 7 has been discontinued with the end of the update program and because making and maintaining a theme or visual style on Windows 10 has become such a chore with each new update breaking at least part of the theme structure, I decided to give up on this project.
It will therefore remain as it is in its 0.15 version.
This theme was created for Windows 7 and required about 4 months of work to build.
Making a theme for Win7 takes a really long time since you have to extract and edit all single graphic elements one by one (I created about 300 png files for this theme so far). I built it using Windows 7 Style Builder which can edit everything in a Windows theme: margins, pictures, colors, fonts, sizes, etc…
Sounds come from Wipeout HD Fury with some extra effects.
1. Download the pack and extract it.
2. Windows 7 doesn’t accept the use of themes created with Win7 Style Builder unless you patch some system files. To support 3rd party desktop msstyle themes, you need to get Universal Theme Patcher (included in the pack and available for 32 and 64 bits) and patch 3 files. It requires administrator rights to work (Right-click the exe file, select Run as Administrator). Note: you might need to re-patch after some Windows updates.
4. Move Sulaco Visual Style files in the following folder:
5. Copy fonts from the Fonts folder to the following folder:
6. Open the Personalization window (Right click on desktop, Personalize) and select Sulaco Visual Style.
7. Get Se7en Copy Animation Modder to set custom color to Copy, Move, Delete window.
