Windows 7: No themes available after uxtheme patch

No themes available after uxtheme patch

So what i did was patch the 3 files themeservice, themeui.dll and uxtheme.dll
with the tool Power Tool Ultimate v.2.3 - Cracks & Serials - ..:: Moviez.to Board ::..
as it is told to do here: SevenMaxClearLiveBlack for 7RC by ~molinarosp on deviantART
When i wanted to change the theme after patching and rebooting, the customization window was white with no themes available.
Obviously i did something wrong, would be great if anyone could tell me what, and even better if we could fix it.


EDIT: restoring the files with the same tool didnt help either.

Maybe if someone could upload the 3 original, untouched files...

You seemingly used a dodgy tool off a warez site to patch the 3 files. Try this tool. Much simpler and cleaner, and works like a charm.

These are the patched files for Windows 7 RTM x64. Should work fine even if you failed at patching them already, as long as you're running the RTM of 7.

@matt0978: Wassup bro. Worked, you da man!

@KazeNoKoe23: Thanks for this one, worked just fine. Pretty funny, tho, cause the interface of this tool and the tool i used equal 100%.

no worries mate! sfc stands for system file checker, scannow tells it to look for and replacing non default system files. if u run into trouble again don't forget to use it, but u will have to repatch them 3 files again after running it.

it's a bit like a 'get out of jail free' card. comes in very handy if u get in deep quagmire (if ya know wot i mean ) just remember any patching u did before u ran it, unless of course its ur patching that caused the screw up in the first place.

I know exactly, aint the first time something like that happened to me, stays interesting that way.... I allready had to do some patching again but no problem. I'm glad it worked out fine, only with your help of course.
