any uxtheme patcher

Recommended Posts

don't know is this allowed to ask...

but does anyone know a reliable working uxtheme patcher for x86 SP1 ?

I tried vista-7 uxtheme patcher - failed

uxtheme Multipatcher (for xp/03/vista/7) - failed

tried Rafael Riviera's uxstyle, but it gives me error that my themeui and uxtheme dll's were tampered with, but aren't as I restored originals from within WIM

I've bought a tool called AveUxThemePatcher some years ago and this works fine. It doesn't patch files on the disk.

must be one of those ghost mystery's :P

and after XP I never trust Windows OS that much

as in beginning after installed win7/sp1 I patched uxtheme with patcher and all was working, then like 8 days later everything broke

all skins went back to classic as if uxtheme was reverted to original by some system restore (even if I have it disabled)

then I checked and patched files were still patched (and not reverted to original)

so who's crazy here ? :P

but patching files is dangerous. Last patchday a lot of users got a blackscreeen because of their patched uxtheme files.

meh, I always make backup, just fire up ERD commander and its back :P

although I would like in-memory-patcher as well, hence why I wanted uxstyle to install

but unless Rafael answers my email, I'll be stuck with "hard" patched file :P

I use Universal Theme Patcher from deepxw since XP and never have any issues with it. On his site it doesn't say, but it works with SP1 also. :thumbup
