There's a slight problem with the current release, the creator's say it will be fixed in the next version but for now you need to run a couple of commands at an elevated command prompt for it to kick in.

It's working fine for me. I installed it and then did this fix.

"We believe there's an issue with load order, as we didn't specify the load groups explicitly. Try issuing the following commands in an elevated command prompt:

Code:
sc config uxpatch group= "File System"
sc config UnsignedThemes group= UIGroup
NOTE: The spaces are intended, do not modify the commands."
it will be fixed in the next build..
It wouldn't work for me on my Win7 (bld 7264) until I did the above commands.

EDIT: Maybe Edrik could edit his post to include this info..

No worries guys..

I noticed the service had to be manually started on every boot so I went looking for the reason, With all the leaks lately this uxstyle is alot better than patching 3 seperate files each time IMO.

That Rafael knows his stuff and it will probably be flawless with the next version without a doubt.

Can I see a picture of a custom theme? I can't get it to work on build 7260. Maybe it's just me, though.

Hello ikilledkenny, I'm also experiencing your problem with build 7260. After I upgraded to build 7260 I wasn't able to install custom themes too.

Hopefully, it will work on the RTM. At least my "Glassed FireFox" works
