HowTo Customize iTunes 8 on Windows

Silent Night iTunes 8 Skins for Win works beautifully on my system.
Finally, iTunes matches my theme!

Since so many people seem to be having trouble, I’ve written up a walk-through that should get it to work for you. 😀

1.) Follow the “Download: deviantART” link.

2.) On the DeviantArt page you come to, look at the left-hand menu. Click on “download.”

3.) Once you’ve downloaded it, use WinRar* to unzip the “Silent_Night_iTunes_for_[Win orMac]_by_DaHLiA_7.rar” file. This will give you the following files:
+ Readme.txt
+ Preview.png
+ iTunesMiniPlayer.Resources [folder]
+ InstallFont.exe
+ Restore default skin.exe**
+ Silent Night iTunes – Mac Syle.exe
+ Silent Night iTunes – Windows Style.exe

4.) EXIT iTUNES. If you get an error that you can’t install, go to the device manager (Ctrl-Alt-Del), and under the “Processes” tab, select “AppleMobileDevice.exe”, then “End Process.” There will be a warning popup; go ahead and select okay to close the program. Repeat this for “iPodService.exe,” and, if it’s still open, “iTunes.exe.” You should now be able to continue with the install.

5.) Double-click the “Install Font.exe” and follow the instructions to complete the install.

6.) If you have Windows, double-click “Silent Night iTunes – Windows Style.exe” file and follow the instructions to install. Open iTunes, and enjoy your new skin!

7.) If you have a Mac, double-click “Silent Night iTunes – Mac Style.exe” file and follow the instructions to install. Open iTunes, and enjoy your new skin!

*There’s also a “Restore default skin.exe” file in this download. All it does is reset iTunes to its original “skin.” It’s up to you if you want to hang onto it, but I would, just in case.

**If you don’t already have “Winrar,” get it. It’s a great program. Go to and do a search for “winrar.” If you have Windows XP or older, download and install “WinRAR (32-bit) 3.90.” If you have Windows Vista and beyond, download and install “WinRAR (64-bit) 3.90.”

Hope this helps! 😀

    Did you kill the processes you were supposed to?
    Do you have the right iTunes version?
    the AppleMobileDevice.exe will restart if you wait too long.

    I’d like to add a note that this no longer works as of iTunes 9. I’ve tried, multiple times without success.

    CoXisNo Gravatar July 28th, 2010

    Sometimes the problem is with wrong version, sometimes with wrong OS… and in most cases it works after some steps you need to finished.. Try to see comments on devART after using download link. Good luck !

    I’ve come across that nowadays, more and more people are now being attracted to surveillance cameras and the industry of taking pictures. However, being a photographer, you will need to first commit so much time deciding the model of video camera to buy along with moving store to store just so you could buy the least expensive camera of the trademark you have decided to pick. But it would not end generally there. You also have to contemplate whether you should buy a digital digicam extended warranty. Thanks for the good ideas I accumulated from your website.

    Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell
    and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but
    I had to tell someone!
