Help installing custom themes. Tried everything, details inside.
Been lurking here for years now, leeching off the collective knowledge.
And for once im stumped.
Long story short ive just got a new CPU, motherboard and HDD etc so ive got a completely fresh install of Win 7 64bit.
So ive been trying to change the boring default task bar with something a little more fitting with a Rainmeter skin im making.
Ive followed EVERY bit of advice here on the forum including all the tutorials. As i didnt have anything installed, when things went awry i just re installed windows to do it with a blank slate.
Lucido is the theme im trying to install (Lucido by =kiko11 on deviantART) and thats how every theme i put in the folder comes out looking. When i click them it plays the little jingle and nothing else.
Universal Theme Patcher:
Didnt do anything. All three files patched fine, prompted me to restart, which i did. Still nothing.
Did this after a fresh install after the previous step did nothing. Unsigned themes service is running, still themes dont work.
I should stress that i have followed EVERY piece of advice on this forum and its guides. Including doing Sfc /Scannow on an elevated CMD. (Also tried dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth afterwards and its various functions). And have followed each guide twice through with exactly the same results. Any serious problems ive encountered ive either system restored (i create a restore point upon install) or done a fresh install.
Any help or insight would be much appreciated as im starting to tear my hair out.
Thanks in advance!
