UXTheme Multi-Patcher (Neowin Edition) 4.0

257 posts in this topic

Please help me! I use this multipatcher when I use XP SP1, but when I install SP2, the uxtheme.dll isn't patched, but when I am willing to patch the uxtheme.dll in SP2, it says that the uxtheme.dll is already patched! What can I do to resolve this situation??

Thanx.

I lost my Windows XP theme! How do I get it back?

well, if you didn't delete it yourself, it should still be there. patching doesn't remove any files.

check c:\windows\resources\themes. is it in there? if so, then you need to re-patch or turn on the themes service (run > services.msc). if not, extract it from your xp cd.

If you apply again the patch it will uninstall it.

I get this message when I tried to run the patcher:

"Neowin UXTheme Multi-Patcher v4.0 has detected that there's any Windows NT setup file in C:\windows\

It's not recommend you to continue with this. Please eject your Windows NT CD or move your setup files to other path. Press OK to exit patch."

:wacko: Help?

home/pro doesn't matter, and if you did the latest updates, it should still work (i use that file on my system, with windows updates).

give it a shot. the worst that can happen is the loss of visual style use. if that happens, just restore the backup or replace it with a different version.

trust me. :)

I just patched my UXTheme.dll about half an hour ago, and I am pleased with the results thank Windows X.

I have one flaw in it, it changes the Deer Park Alpha 2 icon on the Start Menu, to that of the Firefox logo - even though it is the next version of Firefox, it has a different logo until it is a final release. :)

Why not simply use Style XP and get it over with?

Why not simply use Style XP and get it over with?

586450789[/snapback]

because:

-it's shareware, but the uxtheme hack is completely free.

-stylexp runs in the background while the uxtheme hack is permanent (hence, it doesn't need to run at all).

-i hate installing applications (clutters up my system). why should i install something to do what a simple file swap does without wasting money and resources?

those are my reasons. other people may have different opinions.

the damn uxtheme.dll patched my system and nothing happens. I cannot use themes. I used both options available including the manual patch and blah! Nothing.. Any suggestions?

could you at least provide us with some information? did you use the correct version? how did you apply the style? what happens when you double-click it? did you turn on the themes service?

Is this compatible with SP2?

It worked without needing a reboot. There was some error halfway, but it finished fine if I clicked Ignore. I then re-enabled the Theme service and I could apply 3rd party themes again.

I have had the 2.0 version installed for about a year now and I've had no bigs problems with it so I was wondering if I should upgrade or just comtinue using what I have. I've been reading through this topic and the problems people have been having kinda make me scared to upgrade.

uh, there's no need to "upgrade." 4.0 isn't an upgrade. it's just a newer patcher that can patch more systems. if you're patched, patching again won't do anything.
