Skins: Need File Changing Help
 
Skins: Changing .zip to .lwtp
Hello,

I cant seem to get the .zip back to .lwtp file.

Ive tried re-naming it my_theme.lwtp but it just goes to,

my_theme.lwtp.zip

Any Help ??

Locate the file using windows explorer. Highlight the file then single right click.

This will open a window --- got to properties and left click

This will open another window --- where it says -- attributes: Read Only --- make sure this box is unchecked. If it is checked, uncheck it and click apply.

Then try and rename it.

i did all that .

but then the file is just my_theme.lwtp.zip

I made sure is wasn't read only.

Im not sure whats wrong

Any other Suggestions?

You do have admin. privileges don't you?

That is the only thing that comes to mind why you can't rename it, because if you don't it may not allow you to do it, especially if your doing it from a limited/restricted user account.

And yes I am an admin.

Hi, the simple answer is you havent allowed windows the abbility to change file types in explorer. bellow is a step by stem animation but i will put in text as well for you (kind me). :D
PS: LimeWire when i made my skin i all ready knew you had to do this but some butting designers may not. please note that for your making skins section :D

Step 1: Open My Computer
Step 2: Goto Menu, Tools
Step 3: Goto the Folder Options
Step 4: Then Click "View" tab
Step 5: Untick "Hide extensions for known file types"
Step 6: Apply :D
YOUR SET :cool:

Nope unchecking read only does not work.
 
Nope unchecking read only does not work. I've unzipped the files to create the new theme in the theme folder. It does not show up so to apply the new skin. Anybody know what there talking about?

the question is do you know what you are talking about
you have to have the lwtp file not an unziped folder
