Damn! Unfortunately, without being able to verify personally, is very difficult to understand what’s wrong. If running the program, it doesn’t give neither an error nor a message, I think there’s nothing more to do… But that’s f***ing weird! Same problem like everyone else, but the same solution doesn’t work. Looks like you’re the only one… Well, at this point, I think you have only 3 options: 1) try to run Theme Builder in compatibility mode; 2) try to use PS3 Theme Creator 2.0, replacing the XML file with a new one; 3) install everything on the other computer you… Read more »

Nope, nothing happens.

OPTIMUS

Holy shit! That’s unbelievable!
Everyone who had the same problem, solved it simply using the first procedure I told you.

Is there some kind of message the program gives you when trying to run it?

latetzki

All three are checked and I re-installed 2.5, 3.0 and 4.0 beta. Still, it won’t show up.

OPTIMUS

Ok, bro! As I supposed, .NET Framework 3.5.1 is already installed in Windows 7 by default (that’s why it doesn’t accept other versions)… Looking again your “ON/OFF features” page, I also noticed there are 2 other options. So, you should do the following: 1) first of all, uninstall all the Theme Builder versions you have. 2) go to the “Windows Features on or off” page, scroll it down and find the .NET Framework 3.5.1 checkbox: make sure there’s a tick in it, if not, do it. 3) now click the + sign next to the NET Framework checkbox to expand… Read more »

I actually replied a bit too quickly last time, I though I have 3.5 but as you can see, it’s not in the installed programs list, but it is in the “Turn Windows Features On or Off” -list. But the fact still remains, 3.5 installer won’t start at all.

I uninstalled it Theme Builder by using “Uninstall a Program”. After that I installed 2.5, then 3.0 and then placed/replaced 4.0 beta files to Theme Builder’s folder. I didn’t try to open the program until 4.0 was placed.

OPTIMUS

Yep, 3.5 SP1 is the latest version.

Well, at least it means your system is up to date, but it also means there’s something wrong somewhere else…

Tell me, Latetzki, have you tried to uninstall all the Theme Builder versions and install them again as I told you?

(don’t worry, I’m looking for a solution: there must be something we not noticed…)

Latetzki

I can’t run 3.5 installer, nothing happens when I try to run it.

Latetzki

If the latest version is 3.5, I have it.

OPTIMUS

That’s weird! If the Windows Features page says that NET Framework 3.5 is there, it means that it’s already installed (for this reason it doesn’t accept the 2.0 version), so it should be sufficient turn it on.

Ok, wait: unless the check box is only a preparation for a future installation of that NET Framework version (even if it looks strange to me)… but it could be.
So, in this case, I think you should find the latest version, turn the feature on and try to install NET Framework.
Let’s see what happens…

OPTIMUS: You know, the REAL problem is that Theme Builder has been programmed to run on Windows XP only, that’s why the creator made the 4.0Beta (but even in this case it doesn’t work for everyone)… However, the fact remains that it worked for Mike12888, AdyP and many other people I’ve helped, so I don’t really understand why it doesn’t work for you. Well, that 2.0 x64 is the right .NET Framework version and… Hey, wait a minute! In the Windows Features page you’ve sent I see there’s NET Framework 3.5.1, but it’s turned off!!! That’s why it says that… Read more »

I installed that » http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=b44a0000-acf8-4fa1-affb-40e78d788b00&displaylang=en

..and it says I already have it installed. I also tried to install SP1 for it but it says I should use “Turn Windows on or off features” to install or modify it, which is in control panel, to install it. I found nothing there that could help. Here’s picture of it:comment image

Btw, I finished my first theme in other PC which has XP, hopefully it’s soon here. But I would want to do next theme on my own PC.

OPTIMUS

Windows 7… Mike12888 has the same OS and the procedure worked. Well, from the programs/features list you sent, I see that you only have .NET Framework 1.1 installed, but as I said, Theme Builder absolutely needs .NET Framework 2.0 or higher to work correctly (and that could be the main cause of your problem). Ok, first of all I suggest you to download a higher version of .NET Framework and install it on your computer. Then, better if you uninstall the Theme Builder versions and install them again in the same order (that you followed correctly) 2.5 Full ==> 3.0… Read more »

1. Windows 7 Ultimate x64
2. Here’s what I have installed:comment image
3. And there’s what I installed and which order »comment image

Not sure did I install that beta right but I just copied every file to Theme builder directory, which replaced 14 files if I remember correct.

OPTIMUS

Damn! It worked for Mike12888 and AdyP, why the hell it doesn’t work for you…?

Ok, at this point I think we have to restart from scratch, so I need to know the following:

1) which OS do you have?

2) have you .NET Framework 2.0 (or higher) installed in your computer?

3) are you 100% sure you’ve installed 2.5 “Full Install” version and 3.0 “Upgrade Only” version?

Latetzki


OPTIMUS:

Oh, here is the problem… that’s why it doesn’t work.
Ok, you have 2.5 already installed, BUT you also need to install 3.0 “upgrade version” (you’ll find it in the Lili-Chan site/Download)
Once you installed 3.0 (without removing 2.5) then you can replace its files with those of the 4.0 Beta.

Well, I did that and unfortuanetly it’s still not appearing. What then?

OPTIMUS:

What?!?
Well, it should appear right in front of you, showing the 2 columns which contain the main icons on the left and the sub-icons on the right (when you highlight one of those in the left column)…
That’s weird! Which Theme Builder version you have?

I installed 2.5 and then copied 4.0 beta files to Theme builder directory. Also, when I click View » and click any of the buttons, nothing happens. Any other way to replace those new icons?

darren-o-brien

cool theme thanks

OPTIMUS


AdyP:

Worked fine for me Optimus, many thanks mate

No problem, bro, any time! 😀

AdyP

^ I mean when I click that button where it should show up.

Latetzki

Damn! Icon manager doesn’t show up 🙁

OPTIMUS

Good! 😀
Well, the new icons should be there already.
However, if they aren’t there, go to AdyP’s Ferrari 458 theme and follow the instructions I explained to him: you shouldn’t have problems.

Latetzki

Thanks, 4.0 beta works. However, I still have problem. How I can replace those new icons that are in newer PS3 firmwares?

OPTIMUS

Latetzki: I know this is little offtopic, sorry about that. But how I could make theme for newest version of PS3 firmware? So that I could replace every new icon, I have just Theme builder 2.5 (3.0 doesn’t start). I think it doesn’t work, because you probably have Windows 7 or something like that. I already helped someone else to solve that problem, and it worked, so I suggest you to do this way: go to “lili-chan.com” site. First of all, you need to register, then go to “Support” ==> “Official Lili-Chan Theme Builder Discussion & Support” ==> “Theme Builder… Read more »

Nice clean stylish design!

Very nice work! I can appreciate the time and effort that went into this theme.

This theme is awesome, 5/5, very well done and well made. Excellent work.

Mike12888

I think it would have been cooler to just put a small white icon in the middle, and do the same effect. Instead of having the text.

3/5!
