Help with XP theme/style

Avatar-50x50
Aleria says:

So I followed the instructions on How to Use XP themes, installing the Ux Theme Multi Patcher. However, it doesn't work. When I try to use the themes I've downloaded from the website, or even the default XP one, I get this error message:

Can someone please tell me what I've done wrong and how to fix it so I can use custom themes?

Do this ->

Patcher link (Only for Windows XP SP1/SP2)

MultiPatcher.shtml

Patcher link(Only For Windows XP SP3!)

wnload-98929.html

------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------

P.S.--->If patcher isnt working correctly, try in safe mode...as i saw the error in the picture...it seems that running the patcher in Safe Mode is your option...

Another thing to do is...obtaining the original "uxtheme.dll" and replacing it with the patched one...


Hope this helps...

Message me for any more questions

I tried running in safe mode, didn`t help. Tried running the patcher, didn`t help. How would I do it manually?

:o..kk

Open Up any folder...

Go the folder options and uncheck Hide System Files...

Now obtain a patched copy of the Uxtheme.dll file

Search for the original uxtheme.dll in My computer - WINDOWS folder

Replace the patched file with the original one and reboot

Hope this helps =)

It works! Finally! When I went to manually replace the file, it was missing. So I put the new one in place, which did nothing. Then I used the patcher again, twice, and now, finally, themes work! Thanks for the help

For people having difficulty manually replacing the uxtheme.dll file, you must have a utility for replacing system files that are in use. The one exception was where the file was missing. (Since it was missing, it couldn't have been in use.) Anyway, this link is for my package including a utility called Replacer, the updated uxtheme.dll file, and instructions. It's pretty simple. It works on XP sp3, and sp2 as far as I know. The Replacer utility can also be used to screw up a lot of other things on your computer if you wish. LOL.

One more thing... Whenever you replace a system file, you cannot expect the system to work right until the computer has been restarted. That is especially true with the uxtheme.dll file.
