MyColors Themes

What to do...

Saturday, October 8, 2011 by RedneckDude | Discussion: MyColors

OK, I have to ask before I do anything.

Since MyColors is no more, do I need to uninstall them and get the suites from Stardock Store, or what?

Actually, it seems the Stardock Store still offers me MyColors themes. So, I guess my question is, do I need to keep MyColors installed?

 

We use Theme Manager now to load them, right?

My Add/Remove programs shows a bunch of MC themes installed, do I uninstall them?

Do the themes you have not work? Just wondering why you would want to uninstall them. I recently purchased Koi but I never had it as a mycolors suite.

Sorry dude. My response was before your edit.

Stop.  Seriously.

Some of the MyColors suites have been replaced and some haven't.

Fair enough. Old stuff and corporate sludge that won't go away.

Legitimate question. Have I done something to you that I don't remember?

From my perspective.........

Some of the themes, for example Koi, do not yet appear in my Stardock inventory of purchases as themes, only MyColor suites. That means I would have to retain MyColors to install Koi, despite the fact it appears as a theme. 

I have twice written Stardock via email for clarification of why Koi is a theme yet does not appear in my store inventory as a theme, and I have twice had no response.

I no longer use Stardock themes/suites as I find the community skins as good, or better. It is pretty hard to beat the Elemental skins, Sakura, Primo etc etc.

Someone correct me if I am wrong but will not Theme manager install suites such as Koi? I never used theme manager though. I just downloaded and changed the extension to zip and extracted the contents which you can apply separately.

2of3 when I purchased Koi just a week ago it came as a suite file. I changed the extension from suite to zip and extracted it. Inside the extracted folder was the windowblind, ip and so on. I just installed them separately because I have ObjectDescktop. Also thememanager will work because I just loaded koi into theme manager and it showed up.

If you go to the Stardock Store, under your account, and download a MC skin, it is an exe file and it installs MyColors all over again.

RND I am not getting this. I went to the Stardock store under my account and purchased Koi. It did not download as a exe file. It was a suite file which theme manager will install or you can do what I mentioned about changing the extension. Why are people saying suite files are exe? Are there 2 koi downloads one being a suite and one being an exe.

I said mycolors themes are .exe files.

Koi must be one of the once mycolors themes that have been converted.

OK my mistake but I said what I said because I thought mycolor themes were no longer available for download. If Koi was converted that makes sense to me now. I hope more will get converted.

Yes Jim I understand that mycolor themes are exe files. The confusion came when I downloaded the koi suite because it was a suite file but I also knew it was a mycolors theme. A few mycolor themes have been converted I guess

Can someone fix that? I have no idea what went wrong there. I cannot edit it even if I delete everything.

No.  Sorry.  Up to my neck in gross moldy old paper and MyColors is getting to be a sore spot with me.  It was wrong of me to jump on you, I do apologize.

No problem DaveRI, I just wanted to be sure I hadn't inadvertently pissed someone off.  

 

I'm sure I have, it just wasn't you...lol.
