WinTango Patcher by heebijeebi WinTango Patcher by heebijeebi
NOTE: This is for Windows 7/8.1/10 (x86/x64)! It has been successfully tested by myself in a VirtualBox and on my own Computer(s).
If you find any bugs or problems please report them to me.


The WinTango Patcher is a mostly self-explanatory graphical wizard designed to make simple the process of modifying your system files with resources developed by the Gnome-Colors Project, which is mostly inspired/based on Tango, GNOME, Elementary, Tango-Generator and many other open-source projects. It currently includes implementations of the basic Gnome icon set and the Gnome-Colors icon sets, rounded out with various pieces of artwork created by myself and others. Additionally, it includes a Reloader module to re-modify your files if they are overwritten, allowing system updates to be performed without breaking the theme.

Before applying the Patcher the first time, make sure your system is up to date. This reduces errors and the need for the reloader to re-patch your files.

Changelog:

16.12.24:
- Update: elementary icon theme
- Update: Gnome/Adwaita icon theme
- Update: AIMP3 Icons
- Update: Mozilla Firefox / Thunderbird Theme compatibility Updates. Also uploaded to Mozilla Addons due to the need of AddOns to be signed and for easier updating. Signed files are inclued.
- Fix: Updater will now simply download the latest Offline-Installer from GitHub. No more updating of parts due to bandwith limitations of Dropbox.
- Fix: Error during extraction of resources on x86 OS.
- Update: Improved Errorlogging.
- Update: Notepad2 EN/DE 4.2.25.985

FYI unchecking the start orb patching doesn't do anything.

Did you re-patch your system or performed it on a clean installation?

When re-patching you're right because the patcher simply skips the Start Orb images - which changes nothing if they are already patched.
I'll have a look at implementing to restore the original art when re-patching.

Ok, I tried it on two fresh new install and I can confirm that disabling the start button patching doesn't work.

Hi. I tried the latest WinTango Patcher (WinTango-Patcher-LATEST-offline.exe) in Windows 8.1 x86 and Windows 10 x86 without any success.
It means that patcher was started (with admin previlegies of course), installed without any errors and as a result there were absolutly no changes applied to system after reboot.
Is it possible to install WinTango Patcher in Windows 8.1 and Windows 10?

I uploaded a fixed version. In my VirtualBox everything went fine again with this one on 32-Bit. Does it work for you as well?

Hi! First of all the Patcher should work on both Windows Versions. I'm currently setting up my Virtual Installation of Win10 x86 to test what might be the problem!

Actually it looks like you can change the tray icons appearance like in this post:

Hello! I apologize if this has been told previously. I love this patcher and I use it frequently since years ago, but my issues came only with Windows 10 (Latest version, 1511).

1. The patcher doesnt touch the tray icons. I don't know where to look in the logs, because all of them say "completed correctly".
2. There's no "theme style"; only the icons are patched. I heard this is okay since this version of Windows can't be themed properly yet, but I'd wish to know if its okay or not. (Bummer, I wanted the elementary style).
3. I can't switch to "get beta versions" in the control panel; I turn the slider on and I close the program, but when I come back the slider is still off.

Thanks for the time and dedication. I love this work, and I don't really see any of my computers without it.

Hi! Thanks for your feedback!

1) Sadly you can't patch the tray icons in Win10 anymore
2) Thats what I've heard too; seems like at the moment no 3rd party VS can be used
3) I'll take a look at this issue and report as soon as its fixed

Thank you for the answer then.
In the meanwhile I'm going back to 7. I'm a visual person and the limitations to patching stuff peeve me way too much.

Again, thanks for the work and the dedication to this pack. It's deeply appreciated.

hello dude, does your package supports Win 10x64 1511. I read the latest changelog and it says that it may patch unsupported files This will cause issues, right?

Greetings, im having problems with windows 8.1 in a tablet

Everytime i install or reload, the installer finish correctly, but nothing is change on computer. And every time i start windows, the patcher say there is 29 files that need to be reloaded

I take ownership of some fles just for test,  for example cmd.exe, and no luck

Then i moddify with resourcehacker cmd.exe by myself, i change the icon,  and works good, and even after restart my moddified cmd.exe have the new icon


Looks like the patcher is doing nothing...


My tablet have Win8.1 spanish

I tested your patch in a desktop pc, win8.1 and works OK,  but in the tablet no.

I think I found the "bad guy". You have to disable "DDOres.dll", then the Store should work again. The Next version will do that automatically.

Thanks for the Bugreport!!
