    Win 8.1 Having an issue with installing Visual Styles


    Everytime I apply a themepack, t either doesn't fully apply, I get some kind of weird glitch, or a combination of both such as this:

    Click image for larger version


    I'm wondering if there's something I'm doing wrong. I follow the directions for installation to a T, have the uxthemepatcher thing applied and have aeroglass running...nothing seems to work, and I can't seem to find any similar cases on the web (probably for lack of term aside from "glitchy" or "buggy" to specify the issue with lol). Any help?


    EDIT: Also, this, or something similar, seems to happen with EVERY custom theme I try to apply...

    First, ditch the UXTheme patcher whether you got it from UxStyle or Syssel dot net, neither one works very well with Windows 7 , 8 or 8.1, however Windows X Live has taken the UXTheme patcher and ran with it and it also has aeroglass built in, it works real well, you can get it here : UXTheme Multi-Patcher - Custom theme patch for Windows XP/Vista/7/8/8.1 using UxStyle's memory patchingWindows X's Live

    After installing it, reboot, then apply your theme.

    Also looks like you have AeroGlass installed incorrectly, make sure that it is installed in your root (C:\) directory.

Is there already a way, or will there be a way in the near future to style the visual style (Like seen here on Windows 7)? That, and the Start Menu are the only two things holding me back from upgrading... :huh:
