Universal shellstyle.dll -Win7 by Satukoro Universal shellstyle.dll -Win7 by Satukoro
A completely universal shellstyle that I made for Windows 7 themers. Every element that you have previously had to open the shellstyle in order to modify has been altered to run off of global attributes. In short, the shell uses values from the msstyle, such as Window/Text color and more.

My first thought was "If you have to ask, then you probably won't need it.", but I might as well explain.

shellstyle.dll is used to alter colors and various sizing values for parts in explorer that the msstyles doesn't cover. I've made all the static color properties for explorer available through the msstyles itself, so that most people won't have to dig through the default shellstyle.dll to change those values. I find it useful myself, and have offered it for other people's use.

Anything else, just ask.

Thanks for your answer, I need to know because I want to make new theme for my windows 7 and I'm still unsure about this shellstyle. But thanks a lot ;)

I feel the shellstyle should serve your needs fairly well, as I am making the assumption from your previous work, and shouldn't cause any conflict. Good luck.

Is this for x86 or x64?

is there an example of any of the values that would have had to be changed in the original. coz I just can't remember what I changed or if I had changed anything in mine :P

also does it require a restart or just a reapplication of the theme if you swap this one in for an old one =)
