Ok so i know that MyColors is compatiable with windows 7, but for some reaason anytime i go to add a .suit file, through theme manager i get an error message saying

"This verison of MyColors is not supported on pre-release versions of Windows 7. An updated version will be available as Windows 7 moves closer to release."

The problem with that is paid retailed price to get my copy of windows 7 so i know for a fact that it isnt the pre release version, so does any1 have any idea as to why this is happening?

 

[Solved]

I simply upgraded to v3.98 BETA and it started working correctly

Did you Activate Win 7 that MIGHT have something to do with it

 

to get there control Panel then System 

look at Window activation

and see if Windows is activated and make sure your Product ID is right

note if not done do your Experience Index that to might help

 

OR just type Ssytem on the start Menu

and look for (System) in the list

Did you make sure your Product ID is right?

 

IF it is Sorry I just don't know.

someone will see your post and hopely they can help

I can say that they will want you to take a Screen shot of your WindowBlinds Info  or your Mycolors

so go ahead  and do that and upload it here that will save you some time

Lets make sure that you are trying to do this correctly.

There is a program, My Colors that you can purchase Themes for.  During the last 12 months Stardock issue some free themes to Object Desktop subscripbers through it.

There is another program called Theme Manager that will allow you to download and apply Suite Themes from the WC Gallery Library.

What is the Suite that you are trying to apply?

I see the problem, you need to use Theme Manager to apply that Suite after you download it and not My Colors.

well i guess no 1 can help yet, but i have tried to uninstall and reinstall both mycolors and thememanager using impulse but no luck, i also look around the forum a bit more, and i saw something about mycolors being compatible with windows 7 but the themes arent yet, could that be the problem?

Something is not right for sure. 

Go throgh and list the steps you take to download the suite file and how you import it into Theme Manager.  Maybe I can help you identify what is going wrong.

What browser are you uusing?

I have this exact issue when applying any theme from theme manager.  That link just above doesn't really solve the problem (I think) because this is true with every theme I've tried to apply. Even ones with (supposedly) correct links and supporting Win7. 

 

So, you applied beta version:

"I simply upgraded to v3.98 BETA and it started working correctly"...

 

Beta version of what? MyColors? or Theme Manager?  And where did you get it?  Impulse shows me only the versions that I have installed with no option to get it. I've searched around the site (for a couple of hours at least) but can't find anything.

 

So, show me the way brother..

in the upper left hand corner of impulse - select the paper looking icon with a down arrow - and select show pre-release versions
