Your link says you must have Windowblinds installed first to use this theme

What format does the Broken Aero come in?

If it is just a msstyle than you can install UxStyle Core

Enabling Custom Themes

And try to run the theme...don't expect it to run as this is a long shot at best

You would need Windows blinds 7 to install this theme. Even if you did that there is no promise it will work 100% with 7, since it's made for Vista. Only way to get Windows Blinds 7 is by buying the Windows Blinds 6 and after that upgrade to the Windows Blinds 7 Beta. (Which you pay for)
