    lets you apply uncertified winxp themes so taht you can use them...

    its a hack of the original so it doesn't check if its MS certified or not.

    No need for third party programs that u ahve to pay for

    Thanx mbunny,
    is the patch version specific, ie; build 1105, 1106 and does one just run the patch from its stored location to let it do its job ??

    i'm not sure about the one provided here... but most just give you a file called uxtheme.dll

    To install it, go to your Windows dllcache dir...
    eg. C:\Windows\System32\dllcache
    (or wherever u installed windows)
    Delete uxtheme.dll if it is located in there. If not then its okay.

    then go to your SP1 backup dir.
    eg. C:\WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles\i386
    delete uxtheme.dll from there.

    Then go back to the system32 directory and rename the existing uxtheme.dll to uxtheme.bak

    paste in the replacement uxtheme.dll

    at this point... windows should pop up a little message saying that a non-standard file has been replaced and wants to get the files from your XP CD... just click cancel (it appears twice if i'm not mistaken....)

    Reboot, and voila... hacked uxtheme installed.

    The patch here is Build 1106 specific
