Commodus, You Need the Skinning Tool (Beta) to be able to use the .skn file...  If You have already downloaded the tool, just open it and import the .skn using "import skin"....  :-TU

According to the first Post they are working on making an import skin function into the Firewall UI but right now the only way is the beta tool...

I think According to Release Notes (First Post by Umesh)... We cannot change the background Yet... I did not try to anyway...


Thanks.  (:WAV) BTW the skin is very nice  :Beer

For now I gave up on skinning, a lot of things are still missing from the tool and even when manually editing config.ini - white backgrounds in main dialog, color of text in lists, dropdown lists and active buttons (like Add...), menus etc. - I figured out how to make the background in lists/input fields/dropdown lists black (yes, I want a black skin) but with a black text that can't be changed... it's sort of unusable  :'(.

I'll also wait before I do my skin. I also want to easily be able to change font color and background. Until it's released, I'll go ahead and (try to) make some nice icons in Paint to use ;D

I'll add some I would like to see:

  • Change the color of everything (background, text...)
  • Change font style and size (and color like mentioend above)
  • Change the traybar icon and the right-click menu items
  • Change default size of GUI (width and height)
  • Change name to Ragwing's Best Protection There Is 3.5?  88)

The most needed features:
  • possibility to change color of everything (background, text, highlights...)
  • possibility to change font styles
  • possibility to freely switch between BgTypes (BorderFill, ImageFile...)
  • possibility to modify cpwebvw.css and default.xml (don't know what it does, but it's in config.ini so it probably does something  ;D)

Not so important, but would be nice:
  • possibility to set our own tray icon states (like installation mode, D+ disabled etc...)
  • possibility to rearrange position of buttons in GUI, or better make our own GUI layout
  • possibility to hide some parts of GUI (highlights, traffic, tip of the day...)

And now my biggest wish: a NO-SKIN mode = native win GUI mode

You Need the Skinning Tool (Beta) to be able to use the .skn file...  If You have already downloaded the tool, just open it and import the .skn using "import skin"..  All Required Files will be copied to \Program Files\Comodo\Firewall\Themes..  You can then close the skinning tool and select the skin from the Firewall Misc. Setting....

BTW... i just realized the .309 update gave me a misc.ico in the theme folder so now i can tweak that also.. i want  all my top icons round...

Ok... i had this problem when i was trying to import on one of my x86 (32-bit) VMware workstations earlier ( i use an x64 OS and therefore the x64 Skinning Tool even though i am sure this is Not the problem since after i manually restarted Comodo i was able to Import the .skn using the Tool ).. 
1. Make sure Comodo Firewall is Not Blocking the Tool ( Either disable the Defense+ Temporarily before running the Tool or just check Trust Comodo Group products in the Advance Defense+ Settings (on by Default))..

2. If it still does not import the .skn file, i have uploaded Sniper.rar..  create a Folder named Themes in Your Firewall folder in Program Files and Extract the Sniper.rar into a folder named Sniper ie. ( \Program Files\Comodo\Firewall\Themes\Sniper )

Now go to the Misc Settings in Comodo Firewall and select the Skin call Sniper in the Drop Down Menu....
