Try it out and let me know how it goes. Hope this helps
The Group Policy Editors is a great tool for customizing. In this case 'Load Specific Theme' only forces one particular theme. It doesn't allow all themes to be "seen" by all users.
I ended up wasting too much time browsing the the other rules in the GPE. A bonehead like myself could do some real damage!

This may be the answer. I didn't have a lot of time to work with it. I know if I put folders containing theme files it does not recognize the themes. I will probably have to put each individual theme file into the overall 'Themes' folder. I'll experiment tonight and update here.
No luck on Mr Grim's suggestion either. In addition, I tried the 'Globalization' folder. In both cases - the themes are only available to the user whom installed them. I'll keep working on this one.
