    Hi,

    I read a post on using the uxtheme patcher to patch the uxtheme.dll file so that you can install various themes.

    I patched this file and copied a theme from the July digit issue (forever blue i think). Although I can see the entry in the theme drop down, I am not able to successfully apply that theme. Only the wallpaper and a few icons get changed, keeping the taskbar, start menu as it is.

    1. How do get to change this.
    2. What does this patcher actually do? I mean why is it necessary to patch it?
    3. difference between Theme and Visual Style.
    4. do I need to make changes to the registry.

    Thanks in advance...

    I think one needs to run the uxtheme patcher in "Safe Mode" in WinXP. Did you do that?

    U need to run it in safe mode, and it allows u to use "VISUAL STYLES" , NOT themes.

    if it still doesn't work then you can visit my website

    www.my-planet-m.tk

    and goto downloads --- skins section ... from there you can download the entire uxtheme.dll and that's sure to work.!!!
