Anyway, whats the point of this thread? Theres one already, Windows X are you just trying to raise more interest for your patch? Because I think you are, because if you werent youd probably have edited the original sticky, rather than create a new thread.

Check sticky post and ask admin why didn't they update instead forwarding to this one.

I just used this and patched my UXtheme.dll it seems not to be working.
I double click the style file and it brings up the display properties but nothing changes.
What am I doing wrong?
I am running windowblinds atm aswell, will this effect anything?

Sure. WindowBlinds will stop msstyles and load its own skins.

thx for the update, but i cannot seem to get this thing to work at all. I did exactly as the instructions said but when i try to apply a theme it wont let me. Can someone please help me with this as it is really getting on my nerves.

I ran the patcher, i clicked patch, i waited for the windows protection thing to pop up, i hit cancel, then it asked me if i wanted to allow the unrecognized file types or something and i said yes, then that got rid of the windows protection thingy and then i clicked ok then it asked me to restart and i did.. so what am i doing wrong??? :( plz help.

you've prob had loads of problems with this, but i just wanna see if mine can be fixed. Whenever I install this patch, it works well, but when I reboot the computer, then try to change the visual style, it just goes to Windows Classic Theme, in the colour of the theme i'm trying to apply.

Pls help, otherwise, i'll try the manual patch

I Patched this but I still can't run msstyles files. The link for manually installing this stuff doesnt work either. What can I do?

for everyone whose patch failed:

do it manually!

how to do it:
1. get the hacked uxtheme.dll: http://www.neowin.ne...howtopic=315315 note: that is for sp2 2180.
2. extract the file to your desktop.
3. get replacer: http://www3.telus.net/_/replacer/
4. extract replacer to a folder.
5. run replacer.cmd. you should have a black command window. drag in the original uxtheme.dll from c:\windows\system32 and press enter.
6. drag in the modified uxtheme.dll on your desktop into the command window. press enter.
7. confirm the replacement. wait until it finishes. DO NOT REBOOT UNTIL YOU ARE PROMPTED.
8. reboot.

you need to download visual styles. once you have done that, put them in c:\windows\resources\themes in a folder with the same name as the msstyles file.

you have xyz.msstyles. in c:\windows\resources\themes, create a folder called xyz and put xyz.msstyles in that folder. in folder "xyz", create a folder called "shell" and put the associated shellstyle.dll in there.

to run msstyles:
1. double-click the msstyles file, or
2. go to display properties > APPEARANCE TAB (not theme tab) > windows and buttons. select the vs. if you've done everything correctly, it should appear here.
