You cannot edit a theme while it is in use, you need to switch to a different theme/aero or basic theme then log off and then log on then you can edit the custom theme you are trying to edit.
I always put copies of the theme I am trying to edit on my desktop and do the editing from their and the testing with Windows Style Builder then I move it to C:\Windows\Resources\Themes and remember if you edit any theme in C:\Windows\Resources\Themes and then test it and it needs edit it again you need to switch to a different theme and then logoff log on and then do the editing (repeat as needed)
I did the same thing :
1] I applied Blend theme. (The name of theme that i am modifying is Blend) Ok. I applied the blend theme.
2] Then I copied the theme file and folder from Resource and pasted in directory D
3] Then I started modifying THE COPIED theme file in the theme folder (of directory D).
(So, now there must be no relation between the copied theme which is being modified and the original applied theme)
Now the problem occurs as follows :
(Info : the original blend theme which I applied, has own effect)
but, when I start modifying (The theme copied in D),
my (original) applied blend theme loses it's effect. for ex : task bar color changes while editing on screen
I mean how is that possible? The original blend theme existed in Resource, changes it's own effects automatically when I start modifying the COPIED theme existed in D !!
Not only effect but also changes images in copied theme which is being modified in Builder.
For ex. Suppose,
In original applied blend them, the close button looks Brown.
And when i start modifying the COPY (existed in D) of that blend them,
there is normal red close button image exists in Builder instead of brown.
I don't find original effects as well as images in copied theme as per above example while modifying COPIED them file existed in D
