StarCraft colors in Windows 7 and Vista

Thanks to Warlord_7 on the Battle.net forums, I’ve managed to fix the issue with the StarCraft and Brood War menus being discolored in Windows 7 and Windows Vista. The best way to fix the bug is to make the following change in the Windows registry:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\DirectDraw\Compatibility\Starcraft116]

is changed to

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\DirectDraw\Compatibility\Starcraft116]

StarCraft Brood War title screen displaying colors correctly

Warlord_7 uploaded the registry files to RapidShare here for free download. There is a 32-bit and a 64-bit version:
