Now I can see each window's title clearly in white instead of black, with text that doesn't have a glow around it and against a boarder that doesn't have a glazed/glass look, like Windows Aero does.

And I can still keep track of which is my current window by the glow on the minimize/mazimize/close buttons.

I'm now on Windows 8 Consumer Preview, and looking to repeat this process.
Once again, all I want is for the Inactive Titlebar to have the same level of color and non-opacity as the Active Titlebar. For there to be no 'aero glow' around the text itself, and for the text to be white on both titlebars, so that I can still read it if I turn the titlebar color to black in the Personalize menu.

However the combination of WindowsStyleBuilder and Windows 8 seem to be messing this up for me.
First thing I notice, when loading Bongo's 'No_Glow_2.theme' in the Personalize window, is that this time around the title bar text is not white like it was in Windows 7. Thankfully the theme does still retain it's ability to have no glow on the titlebar text.

Secondly, when I import the 'No_Glow_2.msstyle' into WindowsStyleBuilder - and straight away save it without making any changes - I receive an error message when I click yes to the prompt asking if I want to use the visual style now. The error message talks about how I may have added or edited a property incorrectly.

This seems strange, and prevents me from making any alterations, because I cannot use the saved .msstyle file due to it not loading; and thus cannot go on to save it from the Personalize menu and create it as a proper .theme file.

WSB does not work on Windows 8 the .msstyles are different, hoping they update WSB.
