    Question Applying a theme?

    I'm trying to apply a "Royale" theme for Windows XP. I "Extracted" the files from the download which was by default put in my "Temp" files and I can't find it when I click "Browse..." from the drop-down box in the tab named "Themes" under "Display" in "Control Panel".

    Help?

    I think you need StyleXP.

    Why should I need that if I can just change it in the CP?

    I've been using custom themes over the time and AFAIK they can only be applied using StyleXP (if I remember correctly the XP theme wasn't meant to be customizable, until someone managed to patch some .dll file).

    Anyway I've been searching the net a little for "Royale theme" and I read about an official theme that was released by Microsoft. Is it that one you have downloaded?

    Yeah, it could very well be. But don't you have to pay for that?

    Yeah it's a 30-day trial I think.

    Do you remember where you got the theme from?

    Mmmz, works perfectly fine for me... I extracted the files to my desktop btw, and I'm able to select Royale.Theme from the Resources\Themes\ folder (double-clicking this file automatically prompts me to apply this theme from the Display window). Perhaps you should try that.

    Just d/l it myself and worked fine too, just had to look in the windows/button tab.
