I think I found the reason why I had no problems… I copied the wrong image! :shock: :oops:
Hope you don't mind if I use your file, juniper7.

I don't have time to do it all over again.

The "easiest" way is to create or edit a .theme. In Windows 10 not all colors can be changed and before or after, none of them. [Control Panel\Colors] ActiveBorder=50 50 50 ActiveTitle=5 10 21 AppWorkspace=155 155 155 Background=166 202 240 ButtonAlternateFace=0 0 0 ButtonDkShadow=105 105 ...

I've to say that I don't remember having so much problems with other versions of Resource Hacker.
I had to start from scratch many times due to a small change on the file and therefore I can no longer save the file.

I think the best solution is to upload your modded version.

Thanks for your help.
