Hi Everyone,
Today we are introducing first step towards skinning CFP.
Enclosed 'cfpskintool_x32.zip' contains skinning tool.

Although tool is quite intuitive, here are few points:

1. CFP V 3.0.16.295 should be installed to be able to use this tool.
2. You should login as admin or one with equivalent privileges.
3. This tool works for 32-bit XP and Vista, will have 64-bit tool shortly.
4. When you create a skin, it gets stored under '[CFP Installation Folder]/Themes/<Skin Name>'.
5. You can create a new skin out of any existing skins.
6. 'Default' is the skin what you see in CFP.
7. You can save a copy of an image  through this.
8. You can replace existing images, by right clicking on any image, when image is replaced, tool validates against type and size of image.
9. By right clicking on any image you can also see it's dimension, type and location in CFP.
10. File names of replaced images are shown in red.
11. Once a skin is created, you can go to ‘Miscellaneous->Settings->Themes’  tab and select the skin. For the skin to take effect, you must exit from cfp.exe and re-start it again.

At the moment it just facilitates you to replace images used in CFP, we are going to improve upon it to be able to change font and background colors in later versions.

Please let us know your feedback on this. Once we have polished version, we will have it as part of CFP setup.

Thanks

EDITED on 15-Feb-2008

Hi Guys,
We have updated this tool to provide skin Export/Import functionality and have added help file also.
Now we can share skins as .skn file. Later in CFP we will provide an interface to import these skins. So that way for a user to use skins created by some other user, will not have to have this tool.

This way we can facilitate skins for other users in an easy manner.

Please try this and let us know your experience with it.

This tool can be accessed using following url and it has both 32-bit and 64-bit versions together with help file:

Damnit, and here I was hoping for a CSS type editor for the interface. Well good efforts on giving us an icon & picture exporter, but I don't think this could at it's current state qualify for a skinning tool. We need to be able to change it all!
P.S. Don't mind me I'm just picky is all.

What if you don't want comodo to be skinned at all? How do you turn it off? I noticed that sometimes the skinning engine fails and the windows controls show, such as the titlebar.

Skins suck. They never match your windows theme. Keep It Simple, Stupid! No themes.

Simple: Don't install it. Remember this is a BETA too.

Personally, I'd love to see it work better with existing skinning software, such as Stardock's WindowsBlinds, which has some great skins :).

Unfortunately, when I made my own skin using WindowsBlinds, I found out that some of CPF's windows and dialog boxes got cut off, even if I added Comodo to WindowsBlinds' exception list :(.

Okay, a combination of recent updates for both software seems to have fixed it :).

Hi,
We are working on next release of CFP, which may have major underline GUI changes and could result in re-design of skinning tool.

So till next release of CFP is out, won't be able to comment on skinning tool's release.

Thanks
