The version available in this download has a new
system tray icon (the OS X user icon) instead of the OS X
desktop icon. To use, copy and paste the Desktop4Ever
folder to your program files folder. Create a shorcut to
the desktop4ever.exe file and place it in your startup
folder in the start menu.
Regarding the DLL files:
I only changed the icons in each file that represent
normal operating conditions. For example, when the action center has no problems, you will see the OS X Time Machine icon. However, when the Action Center is running backup or there is an issue that needs addressed, you will see the native Windows 7 icons. I left it this way for your safety and benefit and also to encourage greater computer care.
To use the DLLs, do the following:
1. Navigate to your system volume (usually C) then to the
2. Find the actioncenter.dll file. Right click on it and
take ownership of it.
If you do not have the Take Ownership option in your right
click menu, visit the following link for help:[link]
3. Rename the original file to actioncenter_original.dll.
4. Copy and paste the downloaded actioncenter.dll file
into the system32 folder.
5. Repeat for the rest of the dll files.
6. Restart explorer, log out, or restart your system
to see the changes.
