is it possible to use the hacked uxtheme via installation disk so the origional uxtheme is never even there... without causeing a problem with windows file protection and without having to disableing it as well?

I think the page isn't fully updated after it has been updated to Win XP SP2 (?). Pics are missing, and I won't even start telling you about the lay out :P

Cheers.

Hi, if you want to add a new theme to your version of windows without any additional software here's how to do it, I used this methord to install the energy blue MCE 2005 theme (Royale) on XP 64 bit which had a discusting theme:

Create the following folders under the C:\WINDOWS\Resources\Themes folder: (I just copied Luna and renamed and deleted extra files)

royale
royale\shell
royale\shell\homestead
royale\shell\metallic
royale\shell\normalcolor
royale\shell\royale
royale\wallpaper


Copy the royale.theme file that you extracted into the main C:\WINDOWS\Resources\Themes folder.

Copy the royale.msstyles file into the \royale subfolder.

Copy the shellstyle.dll file into each of the \shell subfolders (royale\shell\homestead, royale\shell\metallic, royale\shell\normalcolor, royale\shell\royale).

Copy the energybliss.jpg file into the \royale\wallpaper subfolder.

Delete all remaining files, REQUIRED FOR TABLET PC ONLY.

When you select the Display Properties Appearance tab you will see two Windows XP style options listed.

One of the style options includes a Royale color scheme (XP automatically selected this, butr just check); select this scheme then on the theme tab, select the Energy Blue theme.

And there you go!!!

A easy way to insert a theme to your unattnded is:

Lets say you want the Royale theme:

1. Install the theme on a refference PC (and customize it if you like)

2. Then Copy the theme file from C:\WINDOWS\Resources\Themes (for royale this will be the "Royale.Theme file") to your \$OEM$\$$\Resources folder.

3. Then Copy the theme folder (for royale this will be "C:\WINDOWS\Resources\Themes\Royale" to to your \$OEM$\$$\Resources folder

4. Then add the following lines to the "WINNT.SIF" file:

[Shell]
CustomDefaultThemeFile="%WinDir%\Resources\Themes\Royale.Theme"

Works perfect :thumbup

Hi, i have a question, sorry i have put it in other subforum which i think wasnt the suitable one.
Unstead of downloading a patched uxtheme.dll, can i pactch it myself?
i will describe the method which i want to use, and to see if i can do it?
I have downloaded a program: UXTheme Multi-Patcher (Neowin Edition) 4.0., and i want to execute it in a windows already installed, then i copy from: C:\windows\system32\ the archive uxtheme.dll
then i apply the method described in the forum: modifiype uxtheme.dll -c.
makecab uxtheme.dll
Finally copy it and overwrite the uxtheme.dl_ to make an unattended windows.

Thanks
