Such a big word for edited text, huh? Who actually want to blame you for making one more patcher? There're plenty ones out there already even before I made it. Don't take it so personally, dude. Anyway, there's bug in your patcher. If user runs it multiple times, PendingFileRenameOperations registry will be appended again and uxtheme.dll file will be lost.
Uhh what? Okay I changed it to say "What is different from this and WindowsX' patcher?" The reason I even put the info in the release at all is because if I don't everyone's first comment is "What's different about yours from WindowsX' version?" I'm not saying yours sucks, I'm saying why I made mine, and what it does differently than yours. I also made mine originally for internal use with FlyakiteOSX, so I wouldn't have to rely on other people to keep their patchers updated and so that it could be run silently. Since then I've released the tool publicly and have been trying to keep it as updated as possible.
I don't think yours sucks, but there are definitely flaws, most notably Windows File Protection dialogs and NT Setup file warnings.
Also, as to the PendingFileRenameOperations business, I just tested it by running the patcher 4 times without restarting, so I had 4 sets of entries in PendingFileRenameOperations. Restarted, still had Luna. Downloaded a 3rd-party VS, and it worked fine. You do NOT lose uxtheme.dll. Actually test it before you comment please.
