Sorry to dig up this thread, but this happened again two days ago after a series of updates.
And I can't figure out what's wrong this time round, nothing has changed but for windows updates... I'll have to find out why this is happening as the same theme is working just fine at work.

Did you go to services and try restarting Unsigned Themes again?

Yes, I even uninstalled it, reboot, reinstalled it, reboot, to no avail.
Maybe it comes from the access rights associated to those folders...

Nope, it worked just fine and then came windows update.
When I saw I could not solve the issue, I erased all files related to my custom theme, rebooted, then placed the files from the computer at work (where it works), at the exact same location.
But this did not help, the theme does not work.
Hence the reason why I suspect acces rights on folders or files to come into play here.

Post a screenshot of C:\Windows\Resources\Themes so I can see what's in there.

Here you go. It's the exact same content and organisation that I have at work, where it works just fine.

Hum... Wait...
Ok, I'm back to a working theme at last!

The trick was to not select the one in "My themes" but the one in "Installed themes".
This way it applies my theme, and creates instantly a new "unsaved theme" where everything works fine.

Sorry for having taking your time, I hope that this answer will help others.

Good to hear you got it, the saved 1 in "My Themes" may have been corrupted somehow.
