Changing text color/progress color in WINNTBBU.DLL

21 posts in this topic

It is possible to change the text color / progress bar color in WINNTBBU.DLL:

1. Open a Hex Editor

2. Search for the hex word "83 F8 08 B8"

3. You will see something like this:

00001d30h: 59 83 F8 08 B8 FF FF FF 00 A3 48 0A 00 5A A3 44

00001d40h: 0A 00 5A A3 3C 0A 00 5A A3 38 0A 00 5A A3 34 0A

00001d50h: 00 5A A3 20 0A 00 5A A3 18 0A 00 5A 76 45 B9 00

00001d60h: 25 6D 00 89 0D 1C 0A 00 5A 89 0D 24 0A 00 5A C7

00001d70h: 05 40 0A 00 5A FF 80 00 00 C7 05 4C 0A 00 5A 07

00001d80h: 9E 05 00 C7 05 5C 0A 00 5A 00 32 96 00 C7 05 58

Original value = description

FF FF FF 00 = text color / progress bar background color

00 25 6D 00 = title text shadow color

FF 80 00 00 = text color (current step)

07 9E 05 00 = progress bar color

You can replace these values by using HTML hex values, most picture software will display it in there color picker.

You can also use my little commandline tool:

- Unpack it

- Fill the bbucolor.ini with your values

- Run bbucolor.exe C:\path\to\winntbbu.dll

Note: If you don't use the tool and make it with a hex editor you have to set the Last Modified time/date stamp manually back to its original value, otherwise setup will display a error.

No, I think that is stored in another file, it would be difficult to find.

you have to pass the winntbbu.dll file as argument to the bbucolor.exe, like so :

bbucolor winntbbu.dll

and that's all there is to it, it changes the colors accordingly to what's in the bbucolor.ini files. hope that helps.

Now you can download the updated command line version above, which also works with SP2 and other versions (like LH4074 bbu).

Below I also provide a easier GUI version.
