Black Windows Media Center Skin


Users have already started to change the look of the new Windows Media Center in Windows 7. Australian Media Center Community member Astrotoy7 created a sharp looking black theme for Media Center.

To install the black theme you will need to download a replacement resource file that contains the the new bitmaps.

Download the new resource DLL for your version of Windows 7:

 Download 32-bit version and 64-bit version

Next, take ownership of c:\windows\ehome\ehres.dll and rename the ehres.dll to ehres_old.dll so you have a backup to revert the change if needed.

Then just copy the downloaded ehres.dll file to c:\windows\ehome\ and start up Media Center.
