Windows 7: Third party themes are not being applied completely

16 Nov 2012   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

OK, I'll try that after work tonight.

In the meantime, I made a little more progress. I discovered that I can get applications to use the 3rd party VS if I do the following:

1) Open the properties for the app
2) In the Compatibility tab, check "disable visual styles"
3) Run the app = app uses classic theme
4) Close the app
5) Open the app's properties again
6) In the Compatibility tab, UNcheck "disable visual styles"
7) Run the app = app uses 3rd party theme
