Can you post your tweaked AeroA theme

I tried editiing Aero A. It is very hard to modify. All the msstyles numbers are differnet than Aero.msstyles. Pretty sure the original creator used VSB. could you please help me out thanks. My biggest issue is the user picutre. there is no way to remove it without VSB. or nouserpicture.exe

can you attach it as zip here? without user picture if possible

my Aaero A looks no where as nice as yours (talking about just interface)

Mine has blue and green boxes instead of X AND BOX in the right of the explorer window

and my startmenu text is black for some reason making hard to read.

I'll send you a message to let you know where to download that theme without user picture privately, since I'm not the creator of that theme.

Went over and over this problem in another thread. The best we could come up with is the theme used here: The TBVNZ Desktop by ~Tbvnz on deviantART ,along with the taskbar transparency settings in Tclock Lite. All theme and app links are supplied at the link above.

Link to theme Please
After some research, I found that it should be very simple for us to have that effect:
1. Extract the transparent theme from:
C:\Windows\Resources\Themes
2. Remove the additive device in the .theme file, then save it.

Hi, I just want to ask you one thing. I want glassy effect on start menu, I already have a theme with it but it shows only transparency I mean no blur. The theme is also chinese and in the screen shot the start menu looks glassy.
I don't undestand The part you say "remove the additive device in the .theme file, then save it."
Could you please please be more clear??? What it is an additive device in a theme file???

Thanks a lot.
