found this maybe if you did it in reverse or changed the word TOP to BOTTOM it will work

NOTE: If you are getting error "Can't create file...", that means you have edited and saved the same file in past and there is a backup file which need to be deleted before saving this file again. Go to the folder containing this file and you'll see a similar file having "_original" in its name. Delete it and try to save the file in resource hacker.
===========================​
In Longhorn the "Details Pane" was shown at Top but in Windows Vista its shown at bottom. Many ppl still like the good old top details pane like shown in my following AeroVG theme:

Here is a detailed tutorial for changing the "Details Pane" location from Bottom to Top in Windows Vista:
1. We'll have to edit "%windir%\System32\Shell32.dll" file. So first take ownership of this file using my following tutorial:
Add Take Ownership Option in File / Folder Context Menu in Windows Vista
2. Now open the file in Resource Hacker.
3. Goto "View -> Find Text" (or press Ctrl + F). It'll open Find box.
4. Now type following String in textbox:
layoutpos="bottom"
5. Click on "Find Next" button and it'll show the line containing this text.
6. You have to just replace "bottom" word with "top".
7. When you have done, click on "Compile Script" button.
8. Now press "F3" key and it'll show the next line containing the same text. Again do the same mentioned in 6th step.
9. Remember! You have to replace "bottom" word with "top" only in following locations:
3, 4, 5, 6, 19, 20, 21
10. If you also want to show the Details Pane at Top in Browse/Save/Open dialog boxes, then replace "bottom" word with "top" in 27 and 28 keys too.
11. That's it. You have done. Now save the file and restart your system to take affect.
