    Hi Guys,

    Please tell me how 2 install themes in WIN XP Prof.

    I want to install themes from the July 04 playware cd.

    But I don't know how 2 do it.

    Also whenever I insert digit or chip cd's in my cd-rom drive, they don't autoplay.

    I have to manually start them. Previously this problem was not there and the cd's started automatically as soon as I inserted them.

    Please help.

    Thanks in advance,

    Zeeshan

    Try using Style XP for applying Windows XP themes. U can download this software from
    h**p://www.download.com

    For autoplaying the Digit CD's from ur computer first check that the Autoplay Function is not disabled in ur Windows XP system.
    To locate that go to Start>Run>type gpedit.msc
    Select "User Configuration" scroll down and select "System".
    In the right side of the window pane u will se a policy
    "Turn Off Autoplay" .Now Disable this Option by going to the properties of the Policy.
    this setting should work for windows xp.

    Many Thanks.

    But both my problems could not be solved.

    1. Style Xp doesn't supports te build of XP which I have.

    2. Regarding starting cd's automatically. I did what you had written.

    But still the cd's don't run automatically.

    Please help
