UXTender 1.2 patch the uxtheme on sp3 easily
Posted 07 May 2008 - 04:27 AM
if they are not in the right map, they wont show up.
and please, first try it without the patcher and with a prepatched file before making any

Now for a bit more information, that machine has been running XP pro for 2 years, and the file has been patched since the last reinstall of XP, 2 years ago, and the themes were showing until I applied SP3, then I patched it, yes the file is patched, and now only a few themes show. Therefore, the themes are installed correctly "dude", and were showing until SP3, now they work when double clicked, but do not show up in the list.
The suggestion to use a pre-patched file is a good one, albeit a bit rude IMHO "man", but one major problem, where to get a pre-patched file that is trustworthy?

if so, dont do it man, and else... forget it
i know its a bit crude to replace the file, but its the only way to be sure its the fault of the patcher or not.
that file can be found on this forum.
so please try that, and i knew you used my patcher, i just wanted you to test it before you report.
Thats all man. let me know.

Now then, I think I found a bug or an issue. My daughter, whose computer I use this patch on, was not happy with that fact that she could not apply her custom themes after I installed SP3. I told her to wait until a patcher was released for SP3 then I would check it and apply it, but she couldn't, so she installed Stardock's Windowblinds on her computer and my wife's computer. Once I removed it all the themes are listing correctly, no patched file needed.
For anyone who is interested a safe pre-patched file can be found at http://www.winmatrix...showtopic=18059, but is not necessary, this patcher works perfectly on 2 machines here, unless you have Windowblinds installed.

and then after you patched the file on that next reboot, did you reboot again?
that is really necessary to replace the in-use file.
Let me know if it stil doesnt work, and else email me the uxtheme from your system so i can take a look why it didnt work

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

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...
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.
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.
