Chrome Portable is losing its theme

I'm not having any other problems. It seems that every time I switch computers I lose parts of the theme. I'm doing the standard install path, X:\PortableApps\GoogleChromePortable.

Its the tiesto theme, though I don't think that should matter any.

Other Themes

Have you tried other themes to see if the same issue affects it? Are you sure you're running revision 2? Are you using the INI for extra settings?

Yes, I'm using revision

Yes, I'm using revision two.
No, I haven't tried any other themes. I don't want any other themes, I want that one Biggrin

I'm not using the INI for anything extra.

Try Others

Please try another theme and switch PCs so we know it isn't theme-specific.

ARGH

They told me they FIXED it! It's NOT my FAULT!

*sigh* Sad

Can you list the contents of the GoogleChromePortable\Data\profile\Default\Cached Theme Images directory?

And am I correct in assuming that only the title bar is missing its background? Does it only happen when you switch computers or does it happen if you quit and restart Google Chrome Portable?

Umm, yeah, its long though:
theme_frame_inactive
theme_frame_incognito
theme_frame_incognito_inactive
theme_frame_original
theme_tab_background
theme_tab_background_incognito
theme_tab_background_original

Seems to be when I swap drive letters.

OK this is a separate problem

OK this is a separate problem from what I fixed.

It looks like Chrome hardcodes the full paths of theme image files into Preferences. I should be able to have the launcher fix these paths before it launches Chrome.

I released a Development Test with this bug fixed, please try it. Smile It is in the Beta Testing forum. The first time you start the new version your theme should be back.

FYI, subst is useful for drive letter change testing.

It's too easy to miss one

It's too easy to miss one when manually editing and with some (Songbird in mind) it'd be just plain evil to get them all (SQLite DB). Whereas subst G: F: and you can now run things on drive G: as well as F:.
