    Nice tut, if you unlock the uxtheme.dll do you still need to get a visual styles software such as windows blinds?

    I've unlocked it but when I try to apply the .msstyle file it goes to appearance, but the theme doesn't show up.

    I seem to be having a problem with the replacer.

    when I replace the original uxtheme file with the modifed one it says that I can not back it up for some reason..


    also

    when I apply the skin I have dled not all of it shows and it says

    error: can not apply visual skin, access denied I'm so sad

    a place i call home
    This was on my laptop i use at my high school, (Leased it)

    When i tryed this the first time, i screwed up big time in which i only used the replacer thinking that it would work even without the modified version of the uxtheme.dll. Well what happen was after it was done i rebooted and my laptop was completed f'ed-up. i couldn't log on i was getting error messages saying "unable to open xcopyx, "unable to open uxtheme.dll", "unable to open explorer.exe" ect. I tryed going into safe mode hoping that it work...nope wasn't able to. so i tryed using my copy of xp ---, still didn't work. so i had to take it to the tech center at my high school and the had to fix some errors that were on the hard drive then formatted it. I swear i hate these laptops. So i went back to using windowblinds but i am very tempted to try again the correct way.

    any help would be appreciated!
