Using a skin pack is a great way to give Windows a completely new look without the need to install a different version of the operating system. You may do this to emulate another operating system, get the look of a yet-to-be-released version of Windows or just change the way your computer looks and feels. Using a skin pack make things as great deal easier as it means you can pick and choose which settings you would like to apply.
But if you would like to create your own skin packs to share with others, Skin Pack Installer System may be just what you have been looking for. Whether you are looking to change the icon used in the Start menu, alter the appearance of navigation buttons in Internet Explorer or change the theme used by Windows, there are a large number of settings to configure and this handy tool makes things a great deal easier.
The simple button driven interface makes it easy to piece together the various components of your skin pack – icons, images, cursors and more. For extra control over the process, the tool includes additional utilities such as Resource Hacker, Resource Extractor and more. Once you have collected together the constituent elements of your skin pack, you can then create your own installer in a couple of clicks so you can share it with others.

If you would prefer that this did not happen, take care to untick these two options at the start of the installation process. There are 32- and 64-bit versions of the software available, as well as a special version for Windows XP user, so take care to install the version that is most appropriate for your system.
