Download ‘HomeWorld’ Theme For Windows 7 Media Center

First of all, this theme has no connection with our OneWorld theme. HomeWorld is a Media Center theme for Windows 7. The theme is excellent and installing the theme is also very easy.


How to install:

1. Download HomeWorld Theme from here.

2. Install the HomeWorld.msi file using normal install procedure.

3. Close Media Center (If it’s running) and wait for a minute.

4. Now, right-click on the HomeWorld shortcut on your Desktop and select Run as administrator. Enter admin password if Windows asks you to do so.

5. You will see Windows Media Center Patch window. Select Create backup if the new file already exists option to create a backup of the default system file. Next, click Start button to continue.

In case of “Cannot replace” error, follow the below steps:

* Go to C:\Windows\ehome (Where “C” is your Windows 7 drive).

* Take the ownership of file ehres.dll to ehresOLD.dll. Please read my “How to take ownership of a file in Windows 7” & “How to replace/delete protected dll files in Windows 7” guides before starting this.


* Again, take ownership of ehres.dll.original file and rename it as ehres.dll.

* Reboot your system and then open Media Center to see the change.

    Thanks for your time, Marcellus. I think it’s possible. Will come up with a guide on that, if it’s really possible.

    Hi there,

    I was thinking, is it possible to change the background of the “playing music” window? (top left of the preview picture) into, for example, a star pattern? So tha your album art wil be floating over the galaxy!?

    Hope it can.

    Keep up the cool work, I like what you are doing.
