Windows 7
Still Didn't Work

Hi - Thank you for your reply. I uninstalled Uxstyle and restarted. I then tried to double click on a .theme file and I still got the "This theme cannot be applied to the desktop" message. Is there anything else I can try?

I must start windows in safe mode, restore original file and windows 7 start this time normally, but naturally without custom themes ??

Universal Theme Patcher

Hi, I seem to be having issues when trying to patch the files, I patch the files(run as administrator), and restart my computer. The issue happens when I get to the login screen, it says "Please wait.." and thats as far as it gets. The screen goes black and then again the Login screen appears, but it never gives me the option to input my password. Any ideas on how to solve this?

Windows 7

I've applied the patches, yet I have had ZERO success with any customizations. In particular(Virtual Customs - View topic - Dark7 Ultimate Theme for Windows 7 (Final Version)) I don't know or rather seem to grasp how to customize properly. I don't know where to put/use msstyles, customize the task manager,etc.....even when I put a theme in the resources/theme folder it doesn't turn out correctly.I had tried the uxstyle core to no avail and restored to before I installed it. Now, as far as I can tell I have successfully patched the three files needed with the theme patcher to customize with with windows 7. Now I need a good Samaritan to "hold my widdle hand"....or as least help me figure this shit out once and for all.

I would really be grateful for any/all help.

Thanx in advance....
