Nice. However i hav a question. If 4.1.4 will ever get released does this app automatically detect it or you need to re-write the code.

And what if steam isn't installed in C:/Program Files ?

It's written to work with all future updates unless the website is changed somehow. The steam path is pulled from your registry, so It should not matter where it's installed.

Those are indeed great news. Just tested and it works even if the folder isn't there it gets generated. I'm gonna pin this since it's a great and simple way to make an updater.
Also I'm gonna do some small adjustements to the title and the description.
Great Job for making this. I'm sure it took some time.

Everything is great. Nice job skipping the custom.styles file when it's modified.
Is it possible that instead of showing the "You need to restart steam for the skin to update" in the cmd to make it show as a message box with an OK button.I found something similar which can be used in cmd. It generates some sort of smaller cmd(kinda cool from my point).

@echo off start %comspec% /c "mode 40,10&title My Popup&color 1e&echo.&echo. Today is %date%&echo.&echo. Press a key!&pause>NUL"

Check if you can do anyhting with it.It's not so important but im sure it will look better.


PS: also "theme" isn't the best word, why not using "skin" instead. Tell me if you dont like so i'll revert back.

I know about that, but I don't really like to do it :p

Theme is now skin, like it should have been! ;)
