Windows XP - Royal Luna Themes *Sticky?*

I've been asked to host this file from another site, since the original author no longer hosts it.

It's an upgrade to the windows Luna theme, with several added colors, and a slimmer task bar.

Put this into your windows/resources/theme folder.

Enjoy.

http://www.mrspock2002.com/downloads/Royal.rar

To enable the use of msstyles other then the default M$ ones you need to replace the uxtheme.dll.

To do this please go to http://www.neowin.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=339820

This will enable you to use third party msstyles.

*NOTE* I'm not responsible for any trouble this hacked file may give you. Though millions of users have done this, including me and have not had any trouble.

Also, using msstyles entails you not having to have a program running to change your theme, like windows blinds, etc. That means no system resources get used up. These thems are exactly like the default M$ ones, but look different.

Enjoy.

Is there supposed to be a .theme file because I can't select it in the appearance tab of my display settings.

I looked at the file structure in the themes folder and it seems the 2 default themes have a .theme file in that folder.

Download and extract the Winrar file.

Enter the unzipped file which will be named RoyalMod (unless you changed that).

Double click the 'Visual Style.EXE' tag.This will enter the files into the relevent place.Then Close the page.

Right Click on the desktop and select Properties.Select the 'Appearence Tag'

You should see the options there.All the colours for this theme is selectable there.

This way the original file can't be deleted.

Well all I see in there is a file named RoyalMod.msstyles and even when i double click that it brings up my display settings and automatically goes to the appearance tab. But even if I do that I can still only select Windows Classic and Windows XP under Windows and buttons.

Any clue as to whats going on?

Just so you know right now the Royamod folder is already located in C:\Windows\Resources\Themes and i ran the msstyles file from there.

Thanks! It's always good to changeup the theme/styles every now and again. I also like installing a few extra themes for clients. Just a little something extra from me to go along with all the software I give them too.

At the moment I'm using one called 'Razor2', which is an XP theme based on Vistas Razor.

while it is nice, dont think it warrants a sticky. if there is enough interest it will get 'bumped'.
bty it works just fine for me, np.
