    Creating a theme from aero.msstyles


    Hi everyone!
    I'm creating a theme for Windows 8 Pro (x64) with "Windows 7 Style Builder" (from aero theme) but I can't activate it in any way. Checked the names, files and nothing. Everything seems fine. Obviously I have the patched uxtheme. Any suggestions or ideas?

    Windows 7 Style Builder only works on Windows 7(and Vista), if you have purchased Windows Style Builder you can join their forum and there is a beta version available that works on Windows 8.
