    We need the complete "Aero" folder from Win8 RP instalation ...\Windows\Resources\Themes\ and the "aero.theme" file
    We allready formatted but if we still have the ISO (install.wim) or the theme (I got the x64 copy) then it will work.

    To use the RP theme besides/in parallel with the original RTM theme:
    -Rename the copied (RP theme) folder "aero-rp", the contents remain intact
    -Rename the copied "aero.theme" -> "aero-rp.theme"
    -Open/edit the file aero-rp.theme with Notepad and replace this:

    with this:

    Then copy the file "aero-rp.theme" and the folder "aero-rp" to (C drive usually) ...\Windows\Resources\Themes\
    Click image for larger version
    Double-click on the new "aero-rp.theme" to use/install.
    The original RTM Aero folder remains intact. We just add a new theme.
    Unlike other themes and themes in Win7, the Aero from Win8 RP theme needs NO patching on the Win8 RTM!

    Works like a charm. I hope people understand the advantage.

    Thanks for these great themes.
    Great thread!
