I've just bought WSB in order to change a few background colours in Windows 8 explorer that Microsoft deem I shouldn't be able to.  So I've run UxTheme Patch, and I'm able to test my theme successfully from WSB1545B, however the explorer colours are not changed if I activate the newly installed theme.  I did manage once to get it to work by installing the .msstyles into C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\aero, however that just gets me a black screen problem now.  I also get a black screen if I accept the offer to apply the theme now from WSB.  Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks in advance.

Never save a theme in the C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\aero folder, that should be for Aero only.

Since WSB cleans out any locale folders you probably messed up the default aero. Restore it with the aero folder attached.

If you want to save in the \Themes\ folder make sure it's C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\mythemename\mythemename.msstyles
