Custom themes

Ive used the universal theme patcher to patch both 64-bit and 32-bit dlls. But I cant get these theme to work:

Ezlo for Windows 7 by ~Xyrfo on deviantART
Seven Breeze Port To Windows7 by ~sagorpirbd on deviantART

It just loses aero and goes to basic theme.

I heard my name? lol

There might be something wrong with your patched files.
Or that you didnt copy the right content to the Themes Folder
Also a last thing can be an error in the msstyles (something to do with locations of theme files etc)

I feel its your latter idea with locations because the preview in Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Personalization is black with the default colour scheme. I have tried editing the .theme file but other than that Ive no idea what the correct locations are.
