hi man, i have had a looksie at your uxtheme, and man...
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?

That's very weird, I'm not sure. Especially since I upgraded from SP2. I originally installed on here with an SP2 disk so SP0 has never been on this PC. The upgrade went OK as far as I know, nothing else seems to be broken. Guess windows update must have messed something up :/. It might have something to do with the fact that I tried to install the SP2 UXTheme patcher after the upgrade (I wasn't thinking, I was so used to running it on PCs with SP2), but I restored it once I realized it was only for SP2. Unless that somehow restored the wrong version of the file or something.

well, just install sp3 again, and then first check the fileversion of the uxtheme.
it should be 5512.
then if thats ok, use the patcher, and let me know man :D

After trying to "restore" the SP2 patcher (thinking maybe if I restored the one I did first it would be back to an unaltered state) I got a ton of "bad image" messages and couldn't boot properly. So I used an Ubuntu live CD to boot up and replace uxtheme.dll manually with a patched one from www.withinwindows.com. Now my themes work perfectly. Probably was something I did wrong :P

Thanks for your help :).

can i modify my UXTheme.dll with your patch (i have sp2)and then restart....?

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 :P :thumbup
can you understand me?

EDIT: jaja sorry...i searched on my hard disk and i dont have any UXTheme.dll :s

more clearly:

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

First off all, stop that pm bombardement man, thats not cool and very f***ed up :(
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.

sorry man, i only sended you one pm..because i saw you was connect on the main forum page..

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 :rolleyes:

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

Have fun.

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 :D for now...

Damian666



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.

Damian666

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.

ok guys, please note that there is found a bug in the patch.
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.

stay tuned.

:blushing: ok, maybe i was a bit to overconfident...
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...

oke news flash...
the hexdata is correct, so i am not being overconfident... :D
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.

Thanks Damian and marxo! After installing SP3 my desktop looked kinda... dull. But not anymore! Using Finnish XP, btw.

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.

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.

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.

Upd. not the dll itself, but the temporary .dll.new it creates.

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.

The least you can do is leave more instructions for users, of course :P

Hey Damian,

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,

Volki

Thanks, mate!
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.

Thanks again!

Volki
