I get the error in the screenshot. Could this cause a problem?
I get the same error message also so that is not the problem.
Did you give it a new name? Because that was the way I can't get it to work, it would not work with the same groovy name.

Yep, I gave it a new name, then rebooted. Then selected the theme, but it just doesnt seem to be working. It seems to still be using the standard aero theme..despite me changing the .theme file to use the new .msstyles file

Did you use UxStyle core beta or universal theme patcher to enable themes?

This is the one I use UxStyle - no more patching. the one for Windows 8 it says experimental but it works perfect.

Use this tutorial on how to install it
