UXTender 1.2 patch the uxtheme on sp3 easily
Posted 09 May 2008 - 06:32 PM
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.

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...

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.

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.

any help is welcome man
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

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,

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.

then you should see a dialog popup telling you the file is restored, reboot, and your are fine again.
let me know if that worked for you.
p.s. dont use the reportfunction for that man, just post here.
