    I do not get it, I just unloaded WindowsBlinds, and then restarted. I uninstalled it then, and restarted. When loaded back in, I patched my uxtheme.dll with a the newest one, and restarted, and nothing works. Theme's are not working now. Why not?

    Does this make sence, I did everything right? Help :confused:

    Use the Replacer that muzikool provided in that thread. It's really simple.

    What file do I need to replace, where do I get the file I need?

    did you install SP1a? If so, it stores a copy of the uxtheme.dll file to quickly replace an unknown version.

    I made a batch file to take care of it.

    Look here.

    You'll need the UXTheme Patcher (also linked to in the GUI thread) and you'll also need to know where the DLL resides on your hard disk. Most likely it will be C:\Windows\System32.

    Direct link to Replacer here.
