We wanted a simple way to customize our complete Se7en OS, so we created 7tsp.
The patcher will back up the original (current) system files, and patch your Windows 7 with a resource pack.
There are 7tsp Color Packs in development and available for download.
the Se7en theme source patcher has been built from scratch, including the new res files and modifications from the Official 7tsp Packs made by Kirs
Please install the latest version of reshecker with x64 support.
(7tsp will first look for it in the "Program Files\Resource Hacker\" folder to use it for the patching of resfiles)
More Customs (user contributed) 7tsp Packs can be found here
What happens to your system files:
1. If Start patching is pressed the patcher will extract the selected resource pack to the work folder and look for each system file this pack will mod,
making a backup of those files if a backup does not yet exist. If windows updated a file the backup will be updated as well.
2. The file ownerships of a file are stored and then administrator ownerships are taken.
3. The file will be patched with the new resources and replaces the original file.
4. a check is done to see if the new file is actually there and the file ownerships will be restored as they were before.
