~ Windows Se7en Only
~ ResHacker has to be preinstalled on the system, or reshacker.exe has to be in the same folder as 7tsp.
About this program
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 official color packs available for download and users have created some cool custom themes.
It's possible to create your own custom Theme/Icon pack's and apply them with the 7tsp GUI.
Modifications can include icons, bitmaps, cursors, visual style, Start button, side panel,
logon screen, sounds, fonts, task manager colors, copy animation colors, etc.
The Installer Version is exactly the same as the portable version, only it will be installed
in your Program Files folder and optionally creates Menu Start shortcuts.
Since this is a version and we're very actively working on it, much still has to be done
and updates will be released often. (keep track of the build number) More options and modded
resources will be added along the way.
Hope you'll enjoy!
7tsp is currently available in English, French, Hungarian, Dutch and German.

Thanx for translation:
Patching: Patch your Windows 7
The main function of this tool is ofcourse the patching of your Windows with a custom Theme Pack.
After adding a Custom Theme Pack, previews will appear in the GUI to give you a feel of the pack (when provided).
Hereafter, you can set the options to your preferences and hit 'Start Patching'.
Restore: Restore menu with multiple options.
You can choose to restore the patched files to the backup made at 7tsp's first run, or to restore all or one system file(s) to Windows default.
These options can also be reached through Program> Restore Backup and SFC/Scan.
For extra security, the patcher creates a Restore Point every time you patch your system.
This can be disable in the Options menu.
It is also possible to manually create a Restore Point (Program > Create Restore Point).
Clean Icon Cache:
When not all icons have changed, you can manually clean the icon and thumbnail cache to refresh these.
Here you can select whether or not a debug log should be created. This is useful for pack creators, to debug resfiles.
You can select whether the Logon screen should be patched or not, and you can also select a custom file.
You can select whether the Side Panel should be patched or not, and you can also select a custom file.
