Are you putting 1 theme folder and 1 .theme file in C:\Windows\Resources\Themes?
Or
Is it a Theme pack? Theme Pack - Create, Save, Install, and Delete

The theme Gary showed you a pic of the creator creates an installer that adds the theme folder and file to the C:\Windows\Resources\Theme folder automatically .

I know all about themes and how they work. I make custom themes all the time, if you would have read any of my posts you would know that.

Nice theme you got there . I was just telling you it's not a theme pack . I wasn't trying to start a theme argument . Or any argument for that matter .

I have not posted a theme. I have been using third party themes for years. I have over 200 of them in my storage drive. You do not need to link me to a Windows site that is going to tell me what a theme is. I think it would be better if you stayed with Vista and This is Window 7.

Well I removed all of the third party stuff such as Theme Resource changer, reset everything back to normal. I ran sfc /scannow then tried to do the themes again with the same result. I am going back to just using the windows themes.

If you are installing a Theme pack then it shows up under My Theme in Personalization so it looks like you are OK to me, look in C:\Users\YOUR USER NAME\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Themes folder for the theme pack folder AppData is hidden use step 3 of this tutorial to unhide it File and Folder - Hide or Unhide
Or is there something else wrong?

The Windows Aero theme is there but that is all. A third party theme is supposed to be listed in Personalization under "Installed Themes" not on top of "My Themes like it is for me. Thanks for the help Bongo but I am not going to fool with this anymore. Third party themes slow you machine down anyway.

You're welcome Gary

You still have me a little confused in post #15 you're talking about theme packs now in your last post here talking about third-party themes.

Third-party custom themes go in C:\Windows\Resources\Themes

Theme packs after double-clicking the file it installs to C:\Users\YOUR USER NAME\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Themes

Here is what they look like before they are installed which one are you trying to use?

This is what is inside of a third-party custom theme folder.
