  1. Hi Sergei

    Sorry to post here but I couldn’t reach you by mail

    I’m from France and I’m highly interested in using W7 patcher software developped by Mr Dusha on oszone forums.

    Problem is I don’t speak russian at all and can’t get to subscribe to this forum .

    I saw somewhere you were friends with Mr Dusha , so I ‘d like to get some help about W7 patcher I don’t get :

    how can I make an installer using w7 patcher to create my custom icon packs ?

    I know how to put necessary files in folder to patch icons with w7 patchers but how to create a distribution kit with installer ?

    Thank you if you may forward my message to Mr Dusha

    Regards and keep the hard work with winaero
