  • How to create a theme installer by ~ HammerJack...



    This tutorial will show you how to create a theme installer using the Winrar utility.
    Commonly referred to as a SFX Installer.


    In the screens below you can witness how to pack your theme file, and theme folder in one of these SFX installers.
    Then when you run the .exe file the 2 items are automatically placed in the same folder as your other custom themes.
    That just leaves you to install/run the theme from your personalization applet.

    Many other options are possible with this utility but this tutorial just covers the basics.
    For example, you could set it up to auto run the theme once the installer quits.
    Set up a password, add comments, add shortcuts, etc, etc...

    The Branding logo that I used in this tutorial is posted below if anyone is interested in using it.
    Just right click and Save-as to your computer.
    The SFX installer that was created in the above demonstration containing the UC4 custom theme,
    and all the screen shots is also attached below.

        Since Winrar is NOT a free utility, I will offer to use mine to help anyone make their own theme installer as long as they post that theme here at MT first..
