.themepack File Association Problem - Cannot Install Theme Pack Files

    Question

  • Sorry, this didn't fit in any of the Forum Categories provided on the New Question form.  I recently upgraded my laptop from Vista 64 Ultimate to Windows 7 64 Ultimate and have been experiencing a strange error with theme pack files.

    - First thing I noticed is that .themepack files were associated with Windows Live Picture Gallery, thus double clicking on .themepack files resulted in Picture Gallery saying it didn't know what type of file I was trying to open.

     

    - So, I changed the file association to Shell32.dll, as it should be.

     

    - Now when I try to open a .themepack file it says, "Not a valid win 32 application"

     

    I have another computer running Windows 7 64 Ultimate and it has never experienced such a problem.  You double click on a .themepack file and it installs.  I have also tried using an elevated command prompt and the assoc command to change the default association, but same problems resulted.
