This is what i did:


i clicked the update.rar...it downloaded to my downloads section on my computer. I unrared it with WinRAR. It was a small 8kb file. I dragged that to windows/resources/themes. Maybe i did something wrong right there. But i didnt see any 2 files. What do they look like?

Used the Signature edition a few months ago. Great work by Paul . But is was huge enough . Any theme cannot be 8kb .... there must be a problem.

Try to download it again .

Copy the Red bordered link to your address bar, and hit enter. It will tahe you to the rapidshare download link.

You need to copy and paste all the contents of the update folder into your resources folder, not just the .theme file.

Arc, last time I checked (15-20days ago) the RS link was dead (removed by author). Good last page wallpaper work.
