Elune by minhtrimatrix Elune by minhtrimatrix
If you like my theme, you could :D :D :D

:bow: :bow: :deviation:


[Update 4]
- Fix a bug on MoreResult band when you use Windows Search. [link]
- New glyph for Command Link. [link]
- I changed everything into Segoe UI instead of Corbel because some people told me that Corbel is too small to use.
gdipp is recommended if you like the effect of text like Mac OS and Linux distributions. [link]

[Update 3]
- Change text color + Items for Taskbar toolbar. [link]
- New style for Download window if you use IDM. [link]
- New style for Command Link. [link]
- Add new image + fix some problem for Vertical Taskbar. [link]
- Black caption and white glow. [link]

[Update 2]
- Add an image for ListItem on Taskbar Thumbnail.
- Use Segoe UI for Placelist instead of Corbel.

[Update 1]
- Fix wrong patch in theme file for Elune 1.
- Add en-US and Shell folder in Elune to fix problem with Command module and Detail pane.

I didn't include explorer.exe because I updated my computer to Windows 7 SP1.
You can use Restorator to change yours by replacing BMP number 6801,6805 & 6809, so do explorerframe.dll

[How to install]
1. Install Universal Theme Patcher, re-patch again if you updated to SP1.
2. Copy everything in themes folder (Elune folder, Elune 1(Bottom), Elune 1 (Top)...) into C:\Windows\Resources\Themes
3. Take Ownership, rename the orignal to back up and replace modified explorerframe.dll in System32 folder.
4. Restart Windows & then select this theme in Personalize Menu

one suggester said: "I have NO idea how Elune by *minhtrimatrix escaped me before but when a friend showed it to me I installed it instantly. This thing is STUNNING. I mean it's mind blowingly nice."
..another suggester said: "Elune simply flows together in harmony. I will be using this one myself for a long time. that's for sure."
..and yet another suggester said: "Simply amazing! It's not too much to say that this is one of the best win7 themes so far."

Hello MR. minhtrimatrix I would like to ask you if you accept a new edition of your artwork :) I did myself a little change of Elune theme and I like it much more than the original one. Is any chance to make it official by you, sir ? - Thanks in advance and I am waiting for an answer.

What is ment in Step 3 with "replace modified explorerframe.dll in System32 folder"?
LordMonichromicorn Featured By Owner Edited Mar 31, 2015  Professional Artist
For those of you following instructions and still getting Windows Classic UI, make sure you have "text and other items" set to 100% rather than 125% or 150%.

1. Right-click desktop and select "Screen Resolution"
2. Click "Make text and other items larger and smaller"
3. Select 100% then apply

Any chance of functionality for 125% or 150% resolutions for those of us who can't use the 100% setting? I love the look of this theme but it just isn't funtional at 100% because the text is too small for my rig (42in 1080p monitor approximately 6ft across the room).

Thanks for the beautiful theme.
KubaPrusak Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2015
Beautiful theme but I ran into one problem. When I save a picture as, the window that pops up doesn't have the side file explorer ie. I cant navigate to another folder easily. I have to use BACKSPACE to move back a folder. Its not that big of a deal but it can be annoying sometimes.…
As you can see on the image the pane on the left that has links such as Downloads or My Computer.

what version is the explorerframe.dll for? I'm 64 bit windows and i damaged my explorer twice and had to sfc scan and re-do everything,please tell me what to do 
madnessmaka Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2014
If you're running a 64 bit version of windows, you're going to need to replace the explorerframe.dll in both System32 and SysWOW64.

I'd suggest making a backup of the explorerframe.dll file before you replace it as well. Maybe change it to explorerframe.BAK?

On a side note, you DID take full ownership of the file before you tried replacing it, right?
LukBoy99 Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2014
Already did that and ended with my explorer.exe giving errors and not opening and had to sfc scan,tried twice,Any idea?

I've never encountered this before, but have you updated your GPU drivers? That helps with most situations :)

Your design has such a calm, almost meditative effect. Beautiful.

I have the same problem as BrendanWoolbert. I feel like I've done everything right but it still gives me a classic windows theme instead of Elune.
Any fixes for this?

Really want to use this theme, but can't seem to get it to work. Followed the YouTube tutorial, but it still doesn't work and still gives me that classic windows theme. What's going on?
nemesis-06 Featured By Owner May 4, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Is one of the most beautiful themes I've seen, but I've never used because I prefer themes compatible with "theme resurfaces changer" I do not like change dll's. It would not be possible for the resources you added this theme to make it compatible? please.:happybounce: 
nemesis-06 Featured By Owner May 4, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Sorry "theme resources changer"
