A few days later running AutPatcher I noticed it was black again. What happened? Time to try to figure out.
I finally determined the operative file was: OPUC.DLL and I had been moving it from \Windows to \Windows\System, thereby causing the color change from blue back to black.
Why you may ask.
Well, from the early years of Windows I had been used to seeing all DLLs in the \System folder and would move them as required; knowing that the default path included \Windows and \Windows\System.
The advent of Windows XP just added \System32 to the mix so I changed my procedure to sort DLLs so the *.DLL went to \System and *32.DLL went to \System32.
This had me checking the appropriate APM file and noticed it was set to send OPUC.DLL to \Windows. Is this a mandatory requirement set by some Microsoft guru somewhere?
Also, while looking at the APM file I noticed the FilePath was shown as windows:\ so how would I change it to read \windows\system for my system?
Unless I can convince you to make the permanent location \windows\system.

Since this is how Microsoft installs this runtime, I'm leaving the offical module alone.

I've been dividing the DLLs on my system for years as stipulated above and have had no problems.
