    - themeui.dll - ran black glass on startup
    - uxtheme.dll - ran theme extreme starter kit, (theme resource changer)

    Optional -programs,
    - 7sp icon program,
    -m00d transparent menus (not enabled -now-, but tried with and still no luck)
    -mactype setup

    -installed "Grant Admin Full Control" registry patch but did not apply to anwhere
    (not applied to system.32)

    Those ones might be a little more advanced and require additional steps? have more folders I believe.

    Do i have to use all the widgets and Rocket dock, Rainmeter, etc?

    Hi there moaker and welcome to MT :)

    First of, what kind of operating system are you using? windows 7, 8 or 10?

    I see this is not a theme i have made, but i bet that installer just patch a few dll files, and moves the theme to the theme folder.
    So what you can do is to do it manually, then you need to extract the .exe file with a program called resturator or resource hacker.
    And just copy and past the files in the correct folders.

    If you got Theme Resource Changer installed and running at startup, and have patched you system for allowing custom themes (remember it is 5 files in total if you run a x64 bit system), that is actually mosty the only thing you will need to see the theme change, but small stuff might not look good, if the theme needs other programs to work properly, but it will still work i think.
    If you have all the abow, you can just move the .msstyle and the theme folder to this location: Theme folder and .msstyle go in: C:\Windows\Resources\Themes
    And you will see it in you personalization window :)

      thank you very much for your quick comment, it is appreciated, i do have 3 files patched, also the other stuff i mentioned, i am on windows 7 64 bi, not sure whats going on, which are the other 2 files?

      and theme resource changer is installed, im not sure if it runs on startup, also cant copy files to Resources/Themes because access is denied,, but it let me the first time (just can't overwrite or delete) hmmm , which other 2 files i need to patch?

    Then we found the problem, If you are running a 64-bit Operating System you need to patch 2 more files, 5 in total. To ensure that all files have been patched, you fist run the UniversalThemePatcher-x86.exe patch for 32-bit and then one more time with UniversalThemePatcher-x64.exe Patcher for 64-bit system. After you have patched all the correct files, the themes will display propely for you :)

    Universal theme patcher will tell you if the files are allreaddy patched, let me know if you need any help with it

      and i remembered, i closed explorer.exe and i can overwrite files to Resources/Themes , we'll see, ( I have alot of crazy stuff on my computer so maybe there is previous conflicts)

        Since it was stated 8 lines down in his opening post that he ran the starter kit, then he has all 5 files patched, TRC installed and running (this runs silently and keeps running after each restart. ((verify by checking task manager after each start)), and the explorerframe.dll is patched to allow for an additional Explorer image IF the designer included it in their package.

        Now what's really bugging me at the moment is, how did you manage to download all these themes in your two list's, and your post count is currently at 8 post's???

        Not what I meant. You can ask all the questions you like, or post anything you like, but the downloads are locked until you reach 11 post's as stated in our forum rules.
        In other words with each post/reply you make, your post count is rising. Like right now you just went up to 9 post's total.
