I just for the first time patched the uxtheme.dll. Okay, so I went to lightstar1.com and downloaded some themes. These are fine with their own installer and install a .theme in the windows/resource folder. But what do I do with the one's I've downloaded from themexp that are .msstyles?


Also, anyone know how I can get teh toolbar from Panicware's Pop-UP Stopper Pro to pick up the theme?

Simply place them in a folder in the C:\WINDOWS\Resources\Themes directory. Windows will detect them from there and they will show up in the apperances tab of display properties

so I just have to copy the decompressed folder to the dir? Tried one, and it didn't work, but I'll play around when I've had more sleep.

After installing to the directory that PK mentioned, you might need to double-click on the .msstyle or .theme file. This will open up your Display Properties and the new theme should show up in the list.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
