Several things I noticed.
I reinstalled eCS 2.0 rc4 and then installed the latest base drivers before installing eSchemes 1.47.
The eScheme Palette folder was not created in the Appearance folder. I installed 1.47 several times and noeScheme Palette folder was ever created. I ended up dragging a shadow from my drives folder to the desktop.
There appears to be a problem with
in the index.sch. When switching themes, its color does not normally change like it should. However, if the system crashes, upon bootup the ButtonMiddle color changes to the color it should be. If I shut down the system improperly, bootup, run unimaint or cleanini, and then reapply the theme, the ButtonMiddle button changes as it should be. This is the only setting I noticed where the colors are not applied as they should be.
