I have a problem with UXTheme.dll file. If I am copying it in gui run once then i have to reboot the system to get it working. Also since it is not in effect xp loads with classic theme (which is ugly). I then tried to add it to the i386 folder. Then xp installation produced an error and asked whethere to skip the file or not. I also tried to use the following command
makecab uxhem.dll and add the uxtheme.dll_ file to i386
By the way i am not using xp sp1

what did you do to the file so setup won't stop?
Use this instead.

i need a german uxtheme.dl_ for sp1, and i'd do it myself if i'd knew how...

anyways, i don't believe AaronXP made the uxtheme, but someone else did. He posted how someone, just search
Alright, that's it for the site for now. Now on to the next project....which could concievable replace the current site

i don't think uxtheme is language specific, as there are already hacks out there that work with most WinXPs languages aren't there?
The uxtheme.dll i have in my \windows\system32 has a different filesize than the one i extracted from the uxtheme.dl_ posted above.
A quick look into the stringtables revealed german strings in my uxtheme.dll as well as english strings in the downloaded file.

For XP SP1
check your uxtheme virsion if it is : 6.0.2800.1106
then this hacked uxtheme will work with you .
by the way this will work with all languages

I did this since I wanted to copy the patched UXTheme.dll file during this phase. If copy it in the GUIRunOnce section, i will have to reboot to enable themes. Should I add the SFC disable in the GUIRunOnce section. I am getting a file not found message for
REN %systemroot%\System32\dllcache\uxtheme.dll uxtheme.old

The problem now is that I have added the UXTheme.dll and UXTheme.dl_ files to i386 folder and XP installation works ok. But at first login a SFC window comes u[p saying that some files were replaced asking for Windows XP CD. I am not sure whether it has been caused by the UXTheme file. I am copying a modified sysoc.inf from commandline during the guirunonce section. The sysoc.inf file is not placed in the i386 folder.
