I went to install a new theme for XP and I downloaded a UXtheme patch that it said I needed. And now when I try and change any theme, even a standard windows toolbar from blue to silver I get an error. "Run a dll as an app" has encountered a problem. What can I do about this? I tried running a program through the XP CD's to restore registry files, but that didn't work either.
Greeting: Some useful hint for you here (Scroll to the Bottom of the first link)
I went to all of the different threads and nothing seemed
to be working for me. What ended up working was finding a
friend or someone who had the same windows build as me to
just send me over their uxtheme.dll file. Of course using
the replacer program to do so, restarting and all was fine.
