I have Win 7 64bit
I downloaded Reaper 5.91 and did a portable install.
I dropped the both the Solaris Blue and Gray themes I downloaded for testing earlier and dropped them into the ColorThemes folder inside the main reaper folder.
see 1st attachment

I opened the preferences and found the Track Controls Panel was available under Appearance as it should be.
I checked the Tint track panel background and the color change worked.

not sure why it's missing for you.
I suggest you try making a portable install.

- Run the 5.91 installer
- after the License Agreement, you'll get the install location window.
in the bottom right of that window is a checkbox for a portable install.
- install it directly to the C drive or you main system drive.
I suggest you not run Reaper immediately after and instead, close the installer and then make a copy of the portable installation folder as a backup.
- run Reaper Portable, set up your sound and then set the Appearance/TrackControl Panels in Option/Preferences.
- Copy the Solaris_LCS theme file and matching folder to the ColorThemes folder located inside the new Portable install.
- Run the Reaper executable from inside the portable install so you know you've opened the correct one.

load the Solaris theme.
This will take a minute, the theme is a bit heavy.
