I've downloaded StyleXP recently, and would like to use one of it's themes on another pc. Does anyone know where I can find the location of where the themes are stored?
Also, how would I apply msstyle files to a system in order to change the current theme to the new one?

1. The other computer will need the patch or StyleXP
2. They are located in %SystemRoot%(Usually Windows Directory)/Resources/Themes

you mean the uxtheme patch?

I found the folder for it... copied it... but it's not working.
I know it's something to do with the patch file, but not sure what's wrong with it.

Try a diffrent one that uses a diffrent way like this 3 step method:
1. Run program to copy new dll to dllcache
2. Boot to Safe Mode command prompt only mode
3. Run these commands:
copy c:/windows/system32/uxtheme.dll c:/backup
copy c:/windows/system32/dllcache/uxtheme/dll c:/windows/system
and reboot the computer

I just realised that the patch file creation date is not the same as the original one... does that affect it?

The patch will not work if other theme programs are loaded such as style xp. Remove them all first then apply the patch.

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!
