Okay, I followed your instructions.

Version 5.1 (Build 2600.xpsp2.040919-1003 : Service Pack 1)

I downloaded "5.1.2600.1106.rar" extracted it to the desktop, ran Replacer.cmd, followed the instructions, and then I tried to apply a new theme, and it replaced my "Comtrol Panel" "My Computer" "My Documents" etc. icons, but it looks like I have Windows Classic theme. The background was changed and so were the shell32.dll icons, but the top of the window looks like MS Classic.

I also renamed all of the "uxtheme.dll" files to "uxtheme.dll.old" EXCEPT for the one in System32 folder.

Then, again, I replaced the uxtheme.dll file manually, instead of using Replacer.cmd, still no luck.

I just checked my winver version and I'm getting nothing like what you guys are getting. Seems like the date of build I have is way different than the uxtheme patches provided here.

post-52709-1114318646.jpg

If you need more information just ask or PM. Thanks.

I've checked on another XP computer that I own and get the same version.

I'm not quite sure when exactly this happened though probably some update.

I don't get it.. I thought neowin releases multipatcher v3.0 already... why some ppl including this post link to version 1 and 1.5 instead? Are some of us really outdated?

@Krome: the uxtheme patcher gets updated regularly.

http://www.neowin.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=140707

currently version 4. but it doesnt work 100% yet so i made this guide to patch your file manually.

@iverson0881: id try using the neowin patcher since it autorecognizes and patches the file. i must admit i have absolutely no idead what GDR stands for.

i made a new updated guide: http://www.neowin.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=312381

please use it, this one is kind of cluttered.
