  1. Ladies and Gentlemen,

    I have come across to these custom themes.

    I was wondering how and what program that will open up the default Windows XP themes and integrate it?

    Windows XP has Blue, Olive and Silver. I have the new Royale Noir theme and want to integrate it, put all in one.

    How would i do that with a what program?

    P.s. if you are going to refer me to ResHack, please provide me detailed on how to open up and add the picture, codes and things in it.

    Thank you.

    If you want to use unsigned themes (as in any theme not put out by Microsoft), you simply need to patch the uxtheme.dll file & then install the them in the Windows\Resources\ folder.

    Royale Noir was going to be a Media Center theme.

    If you would have followed my link it gives a zip file and directions for download and use. I have been using this for some time.

    Sorry if I am missing the point. But I was thinking you want the Royal Noir as the appearance on your computer?

    Like this.

    My point is.. I already have royale Noir and i know how to apply it.

    You see, click and select Windows XP under " Windows and buttons"

    Click Color Scheme, it list 3 schemes, correct?

    Now i want to hac-k the file and add the royale and royale noir schemes to windows xp.
