Hi all,

I have a windows 7 SP1 32 bits, I patched it to be able to install third party themes. The problem is when I apply new theme, nothing happens. Colors still the same, and caption buttons still the same. Sometimes, the wallper changes, but nothing more.

I tryed everything, No idea what to do more.

Any sugestions?? Thansk!!!

Dear All,
thanks for your replys.

I've used several patchs, like UxStyle and UniversalThemePatcher_20090409

Universal Theme Patcher Indicates the files are correctly patched.
I'm copying the themes for: C:\Windows\Resources\Themes
And, when I click 'right click, personalize' I can see them installed, but nothing happens when I click it.
I can see the message 'waiting...' but nothing happens...


I'm using windows 7 pro 32bits
