Changing windows color with slideshow

I'm new and didn't found this.
I'm looking for how-to the window's color change according to the pictures in slideshow (one color for each picture)
this should be possible, someone succeeded (link removed)
nothing found neither in tutorioals nor in MSDN and also nothing clear in the .theme file

If someone knows .....

Thanks a lot

only bars above desktop seems to be colored ... but it's only the background color
