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.

This is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But, it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.

you may have to makecab the file after editing, or modifype the file to correct the checksum.


makecab winntbbu.dll

or

modifype winntbbu.dll -c

(you can download modifype.exe form unattended.msfn.org under downloads)

After using the new gui version (haven't tried the commandline version), I recieve an error for WINNTBBU.DLL during TEXTMODE installation (slipstreamed SP2 RTW). I have successfully used modifype.exe to get past the problem but I was wondering if anyone else was having the problem and if there was a known fix (besides modifype). Thanks. And Thanks SCP for the program.

this is no error or something as the checksum of the file changes if you modify the bits and bytes in it. windows setup calculates the checksum of each file and compares it to the value which is saved inside each file.

if you dont use modifype -c, this value isnt equal to the checksum of the file which will be calculated by windows setup and it will give you an error. this is important in cases of corrupted files produced by defected hard- or software as those files could harm your system.
Best regards, Rogge
