    Thank you for the detailed explanation. I've done that in the past and it didn't worked. All I got was black screen with a cursor on it. I believe it could be done from the registry but we're gonna need a reg heck, that's exactly why I asked @MSMG for it.

    The concerned registry entries that needs to be manipulated are:
    Code:
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes]
    "InstallTheme"="%SystemRoot%\\Resources\\Themes\\Default.theme"
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes]
    "CurrentTheme"="%SystemRoot%\\Resources\\Themes\\Default.theme"
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER changes needs to be done in the default profile as we are not going to use the copyprofile either. This is an important point.

    Should DaRT be integrated as:

    1. Integrate to Windows Setup Boot Image.
    2. Integrate to Windows Recovery Image

    The intuitive answer appears to be option 2? . . . When would option 1 be preferred over option 2?

    Thanks.

    1. When booting the ISO, you can go to "repair my pc" and DaRT will be available.
    2. On a running system, you can go to the winre environment (reagentc /boottore and next reboot)

    0k i use themes only without Wallpapers only Colours . . . if i right by Own wallpapers the 0wn Pictures must copyed over 0gPictures with same Proberties as 0gPictures . . . open 0g aero.theme with Notepad it shows for path

    Wallpaper=%SystemRoot%\web\wallpaper\Windows\img0.jpg .

    MayBe copy your own picture that is renamed to - img0.jpg and set to same Securitysettings - into mounted DVD folder .

    By my knwoledge theme settings are not set in registry but in - .theme files - also for Win to know wich mouse corsur to use is set in - .theme - path to wallpaper is set in - .theme - windowborder colour is in - .theme - and maybe other things.

    Overall iam an normal consumer user @ all and dont know nothing more as where is a Path but what to set is my mess :)

    You're right. All the visual style settings are in .theme file. I'm a themer myself, I know. I'm not talking about Microsoft themes but 3rd party themes with entirely different enum classmaps. MSMG Toolkit patches the image to accept the 3rd party themes but as far as I'm aware there is still no function to set the default custom theme.

    The problem is not the paths or the visual style settings referenced in the .theme file, it's marking the custom visual style as default. Once the .theme file and associated .msstyle is marked as default, system can setup all the necessities itself based upon the reference in the .theme file but how to mark them as default ?

    That's the question, mes ami

    It's not you or the host, it's the faulty update. Other users are also having the same issue. Did you integrated the latest preview of monthly rollup KB4525252 ?? that's most likely the culprit.

    @MSMG is working on a fix. Wait for the updated version of the toolkit.Thank you for taking time and reporting it.

    @ceo54 His problem is different. There seems to be an error integrating updates.

    Maybe MSMG Toolkit could integrate W10UI as part of it's updating feature?
