Windows 7: Theme Resource Changer not working

Theme Resource Changer not working

After installing UxStyle, I installed the 64-bit version of The Theme Resource Changer. When I changed to the sample theme that they provide (Black aero), I got the black theme, but it wasn't using the graphics in the extra folders (explorer.exe, etc.), which is the whole point of the thing. Can someone please help me figure out how to get it to work?

Thanks,
Ellen

Reinstalling didn't help.

Where exactly inside theme folder do you want a screenshot?

I have to say that I hate that black theme (and all black themes), and it hurts my eyes to look at it. Do you need the screenshots to be with the black aero theme, or can I use my current theme?

It's more about the contents of the folder he's looking for, you can use any theme you want.

Yes use any theme. Post Screenshot of the inside of the theme you are trying to change.

Yes, but is that the theme you are trying to use or are you trying a other theme other then that black theme?

It looks like your theme is classic theme is it?

I'm at this particular moment using the classic theme, yes, but what I'm saying is that when I choose the black Aero theme in Personalization, it does indeed use the system's Aero theme in black, but without the special graphics in the three additional folders.
