The Spanish-localized uxtheme library has problems, hence the rename to .txt. It doesn't work so don't use it. Until I get a new one, it'll remain there. I'm thinking of getting a copy of the MUI and extracting DLLs from that...

Would it be helpful if we set up some kind of support chat? This thread-based stuff ain't working well for new people (having to read millions of pages)...

I realy like your guide and I used it too,but there still are some things that are unclear to me.Esspecialy ONE thing.I explain.:so I copy the theme to the resources folder,everything works fine but the visual style doesnt change completely to the one in the preview.The only thing that doesnt change are the icons in the window toolbar.

So I would like to ask you how I can change those as simply as possible.

here's a picture of what I mean.

Our guide only really covers problems with patching the uxtheme.dll and to get any theme to show up. As this is a guide realted forum and questions and answers adhearing under the specific forum rules and to not cause disruption I would kindly ask you to move your question to:

http://www.neowin.net/forum/index.php?showforum=34

Not that we cannot answer your question (I would personally suggest trying another theme) but it would be best for this thread at the moment to keep the questions specific to the topic. Thank you :)

This has probably already been answered, but I can go to any theme site and download a new VS after replacing my uxtheme.dll right? (I assume VS and theme are interchangeable). Does it matter if the VS is a .msstyle or .theme file?

Where do you put the new shellstyle.dll's you get with many visual styles? I can never get them to work. I'm using XP SP1 btw. Thanks.

All the uxtheme.dll mirrors for build 2600.xpsp_sp2_rtm seem to have disappeared.
