Windows 7: Does anyone know to make a .theme file?

Does anyone know to make a .theme file?

I found some ''aero basic'' themes on deviantart (basic themes with aero aspect) but in the downloading folder they lack the .theme file, although there is even a Shell folder, an en-US folder and even the desktop background (of course along with the .msstyles file).

Can anybody make the missing .theme file? I don't want to keep replacing the aero.msstyles file every time I want to change the theme. The files are bellow. If you also want to publish them under your name, go ahead!

Hah, great! You're a life saver, Bongo! I have also some downloaded themes that contain only the aero.msstyles files in them. Should I post them here, go to the theme topic or create a new topic (after I finnish the whole work of course)?

There they are. But they are so buggy even I won't use them. If somebody wants to play arround with these, I'll just leave them here. Meanwhile I'll create some others that are trully basic based on what I found on the internet so far.

You're Welcome, the themes that you are downloading with only aero.msstyles I would use that link I posted and just create folders and .theme files that are needed.

Yeah, that's what I did. I copied the Aero.theme file and the Aero folder, changed the .msstyles file and shifted the paths and all those things. Too bad that most of them are now buggy (so far I tried these, these, and these; only ''chocolate'' from intel-pentium-4 worked well. The rest had preview area of the opened programs white and bordered and in some cases it wasn't even highlighting it).
