    I am wondering if anyone has the imageres.dll of the Windows 8 Release Preview? I am looking to replace the images in RTM with the images contained within that file.

    Thanks so much! I do have a question... was your installation of the RP locked? I am asking because I installed the RP after the expiration date and was locked to a specific color (pngs in imageres.dll RTM seem to include every color).

    Yes, as a matter of fact it is.

    Well, shoot. That explains why it only has one color though. Is there a way to upload the file without installing? Thank you again.

    Yes, you can mount the iso, and extract the install.wim from it and then mount install.wim with imageX. I have done that already and the hash is identical to the one I have uploaded already.

    As you can see here.
