Windows8 RTM logon for Windows7 by PeterRollar Windows8 RTM logon for Windows7 by PeterRollar
!!Caution!!
This only works with Windows7 SP1 32bit and 64 bit
DON'T try it on another version

Correct size of userpicture, passwordfield and buttons.

Make a backup of your files before.
Learn how to remove the original language button in the left upper corner( if there is one) here[link] Thanks to :iconlee-whittington: for the hint.:)



Be careful what you are doing. I'm not responsible for any damage of your system. Don't try it if you are not an experienced user and if you have no installation disc to repair your system if somethings going wrong.

Use the background changer of your choice to change the background.

This also changes the look of your winver info as shown in the bottom picture.

This is no prob.Open the image with any image editor. Select "Save as" and save it as any format you need. Time needed about 30 seconds.:)

This looks really nice!

Is there any way that we can remove the references to the domain . . . "DomainName\Username" or "Log in to: Domain Name" --- I've been trying to do this since my organization recently went through a name change and references to the old name are not desired.

Tried this file five minutes ago and it works perfect. Seems you made something wrong while replacing. You know that you have to take ownership of a systemfile to replace it? I'm pretty sure you still have the original file in place.Learn how to replace this file herewww.askvg.com/download-windows…
Btw. This file is outdated. Newer one is herepeterrollar.deviantart.com/art…

nope I didn't do anything wrong I took the ownership of authui.dll and renamed it to authui_original.dll and did the exact thing with basebrd.dll then I changed the value of OEMbackground in the regedit from 0 to 1 and I put the background from the zip file in C:\Windows\System32\oobe\info\backgrounds and I renamed it to BackgroundDefault
I'm pretty sure that's it please tell me if I did anything wrong :(!?

I agree, it seems you did nothing wrong. Mysterious. Why should something that works for so many people not work for you? Do you have SP1?
And can you give a screenshot of what you get?

Windows7 dlls are multilingual. So it works for any language. Thousands of people use it. The only risk is if you are not careful while replacing. Some basic knowledge needed.
This deviation is outdated. I recommend to use this one

Really looks good, but it seems that for my screen (1920x1080) this logon is too small. User pictures doesn't look the way they should be, you can see that lines aren't straight... Maybe those photos will explain you better that I mean: [link], [link].

Btw, still no plans for custom background?
Reply
:iconpeterrollar:
PeterRollar Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I try to explain you what's the reason. Hope you understand because my english isn't the best. The userpicture of Win7 is only 120x120 pix and the userpic of Win8 is 200x200 pix. So i have to zoom the picture which causes a loss of quality.
Most pictures look better than the Win8 default one which really doesn't look good when it is zoomed. Simply try another more detailed one.
If you are an experienced user you can also try this:
Open authui with reshacker. Extract bitmap 12223. Copy the userpicture of your choice in the bmp. The size of the pic must be 200x200 pix.
After that you will have a not zoomed userpicture of better quality. This works because bmp 12223 normally is an overlay (frame) for the userpicture. This way it simply covers the zoomed image which is still there.
Only you loose the ability to change your userpic without reshacker.
DON'T make a new image to do this. You have to use the one you've extracted before. The userframes are digitally signed by Microsoft. When you use your own image your system will not boot anymore, so be careful.:)
A version which can be used for all colours is on the to do list for January. Believe me it is more work than most of the people think.

This problem isn't only with the user picture from your archive, "Windows" doesn't show my normal account picture too (I have several accounts). I can't edit "authui.dll", because I'm not the only person who's using this computer. I don't want my photos to be showed up in all accounts. Look at this deviant: [link], user picture using this looks pretty good. Can you look into "authui.dll" from that deviant and report me which size this person is using to display pictures correctly? In this case I could edit your file by myself.

PeterRollar Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
The answer is simple. He uses the default size and doesn't zoom anything. So the pictures keep their original appearance. I opened the file with reshacker and it seems to be a good logon. Why don't you use it?

It is in the UI files. Note there are three.They must be all the same. This means edit one and copy and paste your changes to the other ones.

Can't remember anymore. Use the search function of reshacker and enter 200.

Hi, many thanks for making this for us. I have a request: looking at the screenshots, one can see that there is a small offset when comparing the user status (e.g. "Gesperrt") and the user name - they are not aligned "properly". Is this something that could be fixed easily?

:iconpeterrollar:
PeterRollar Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Honestly i'm not sure if it can be solved. The authui.dll is a beasty file which must be handled with care. All changes of the UI files of it are kinda tricky. Anyways i'm planning a workover of this deviation, to make it compatible with all background pictures. I will have a look on this than.

Hey Peter,
I'm finally taking the plunge- I want to complete my transformation on my HP Mini, do you know if this will be safe for Windows 7 Starter? I was able to get 3rd party themes with Aero support and DWM, but I still feel a bit cautious... ;)
And how does this look with multiple accounts to display?

PeterRollar Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I think it is asfe. Never heard that the starter edition has another logon than the other versions.
It looks like this[link]
with multiple accounts. The only one difference is that the names are displayed on the right side of the user pictures.

Inaccurate. The Text comes in from the left instead of being stationary. There is no Loading Swirl.

If you absolutely dislike the animation, simply open the file with reshacker and remove the animation by editing the UI files.:D

The reason is simple. The background isn't part of the authui.He must change it manually in oobe folder or with any backgroundchanger. This is missed in the description, and it seems he doesn't knows it.
