see what version it returned: 6.00.2600.0000 (xpclient.010817-1148)
i believe that is a sp0 version man.
so that would explain why it didnt work, but how the hell did you end up with a sp0 file after upgrade with sp3???
any idae what went wrong on your system?

after that, copy my UXTheme.dll, make a cab (makecab command) to rename it to UXTheme.dl_ ..... and then copy it into my i386 folder windows setup?
my windows ue setup has SP2...i want be able to use any theme with sp2...and then..if the user install sp3..he can use the themes too (with sp3)
sorry for my bad english
can you understand me?
EDIT: jaja sorry...i searched on my hard disk and i dont have any UXTheme.dll :s
how can i add the patched UXTheme.dll (with support for sp3) to my windows ue SP2 setup?
my windows ue setup (is not mine...) has a UXTheme.dl_ on i386 folder

not to mention that i wont help you that way man...
and about sp2 versions, if you read the topic, which you clearly didnt, you would see this is tested on sp3 only.
that wont mean it wont work, but its not officialy for now.
sorry if i sound a bit harsh, but i really dont like it if i get bombarded by pm's, just wait till i give a answer man.

maybe my mistake was because you didnt put all the information about your patch at the first post...(there are 3 pages) and its easy forget something..
if you see the first post..you didnt put that the patch was only tested on sp3

Hi dudes, marxo from WPC, and myself, have created a UXtheme patcher for the new sp3 version.
this little app can easily patch your file, so you can use unsigned visual styles.
Here is a download link: SP3 UX theme patcher 1.1
new version uploaded.
better detection of patched or unpatched file.
more safety checks
and a "lost hope" hotkey to restore the original file.
I tested it with success on a russian uxtheme file, and all wend well, so i think its language
undependend, but i wont make that claim for sure for now...
You might want to read the thread. He did state that, it's not his fault it's not all right there in the first post. One could logically surmise that since this is for SP3 as stated, that SP2, SP1. are not included. Research is always good, including reading a small 3 page thread.
yes, only for sp3, in a few days we will all upgrade so,...
why supply sp2 support? and its also allready there so...
and i hope it works on all language versions, but untill its tested, i cant say for sure...
so let em know dudes.

it will only work on admin accounts, not the patcher, but the patched file itself...
yeah, i know, its really weird man.
we are investigating it now.
Posted 13 May 2008 - 09:29 AM
problem solved, so stay tuned for next version
Posted 13 May 2008 - 05:31 PM
i checked it on my testbox, and it worked there, but when i tested it on my english testbox, it didnt...
so what the hell is going on here? i dont know.
you dont have a problem if your on a normal account, but on a restricted one, it errors up your explorer!!!
so, maybe not fixed then... but if its the problem of the patch itselfor some settings in Windows...
i really dont know, i checked a few pre patched uxthemes, and they all have the same patched code :S
i will report back...
Posted 13 May 2008 - 06:40 PM
the hexdata is correct, so i am not being overconfident...
BUT the automated process makes it work only on a admin account, why?
i really dont know, if i compare the auto patched and hand patched file, they are identical.
so it beats me...
still searching though.

Hope you manage to find a fix for the limited user account problem. As a workaround I suppose I'll just have to promote the lua to admin account.
Posted 15 May 2008 - 11:34 AM
i WILL find a way, trust me
Posted 16 May 2008 - 03:46 PM
It's a permissions issue, apparently the patcher messes them up for the dll. Make sure that the Users and Power Users groups have the Read and Execute permission set.
This works fine for my admin account but my limited user account crashes explorer and spits out and error message - 0xc0000022. If I make the account admin it then works fine but revert it back and it crashes again.
Upd. not the dll itself, but the temporary .dll.new it creates.

any help is welcome man
Posted 16 May 2008 - 09:37 PM
i was going crazy coz nlite didnt do the patch.
very good job
Posted 19 May 2008 - 01:59 AM
Make sure you set the right permissions on the file you create? I don't know the details, I don't do native Windows programming.
so ullfurinn, what do you think i can do about it?
any help is welcome man
The least you can do is leave more instructions for users, of course
Posted 19 May 2008 - 05:52 AM
i will try that, thanx man
Posted 26 May 2008 - 01:43 AM
I can only download the "Character Creator Studio". This isn't really an UXtheme-Patch. Do have the wrong link or do I make another mistake?
So far, it seems I cannot use custom themes with XP SP 3...
Thanks in advance,
Posted 26 May 2008 - 02:46 AM
fixed the link now
Posted 26 May 2008 - 06:43 AM
Works really fine!
(Though I still don't know where to find the Windows Version, as it states "Version 5.1.2600" etc. here)
Nevertheless, my old style ("Luna Royale Black") works.
