Orbital Shark, I don't know if this would be easier but if you navigate to Windows > Globalization and have folder options set to show hidden files....if you type in the search box "*.theme" (star)(dot)(theme) they will come right up and just double click each one. That will install them too. FYI.

That's true...But i'm a geek so any deviation from the norm is good for me LOL. Also, would you have thought to look there in the first place?

Well the Chinese edition of 7106 has a unique theme not found in the MCT folder.

By the way did you manage to sort those themes out regarding china. It would be nice if they are as you describe them.

You're welcome

I'm also going to start work on the themes that are missing in 7077 but were present in other builds (if any, i'll look more in depth).
