1st
You will need to do 1 of these 2 ways of Enabling custom themes for it to work.
Enabling Custom Themes - Windows 7
Or
Theme - How to Apply Custom Themes
2nd
Most of the extras are there if you want to use them like the window gadgets, rainmeter skin, icons, custom system file's
3rd
Open the theme folder and put the 2 (screenshot) in C/Windows/Resources/Themes

4th
Open the extras folder then open the tools folder then open the theme resource changer folder in the install the theme resource changer for your version X64 or x86 there is some instructions in that folder if you need to read them.

After it is installed go Personalize and start the theme it will change the resources for you.

Well you need Rainmeter to use the skins --->Rainmeter.
If you plan on using it, I suggest you read some of these tutorials:
Rainmeter101,
