    @l30 i knew you said you would be busy so i compiled what had been done and as a few new brands was added recently it was all put together.

    Most brands all i have tweaked was the brand name's '.theme' file so that they was more compatible with win 7 and vista kernels resolution scaling.

    I think the odd brand had a new wallpaper added as an extra file when a new one was made by the oem.

    For W11 builds greater than 22620 it appears that to make the 'Force local account' option work it is also best to select the 'Turn off internet during oobe' one as well or it not seem to allow the local account to be created.

    @Enthousiast did a lot of testing , several tests in fact, and found that those two options are needed for the latest 22621 build to allow a local account to be created during the user OOBE stage.

    I was going to have MRP auto select the turn off internet one but decided not to mess with the selection as it can get complicated working the logic part for different builds etc.

    For the next creator I have now added extra text on the 'Force W11 Local Account' option so that when selected the msgbox will mention about also using the other option on build 22621.

    So i have left it up to the end user to select the option(s) as they wish as on earlier builds of win 11 the 'turn off internet connections during oobe' can cause some issues.

    So, for 22621.1 Pro this is enough, it seems:
    Code:
    :HideOnlineAccountOOBEScreen=Yes
    22621.1 Pro, when you want to use
    Code:
    :ForceW11LocalAccount=Yes
    it needs
    Code:
    :TurnOffInternetDuringOOBE=Yes
    also to be set, this because the first only works when the system is not connected during OOBE.

    For 22621.1 Home this is also only working when disconnected:
    Code:
    :ForceW11LocalAccount=Yes

    I must say that 25131 is one weird insider build!

    Dark theme elements are all messed up or just reset to white...

    Highlight text and title bar color options are hit and miss too now, on my test install the title bar and highlight worked but dark theme for right click menus didnt :(

    One reason why MRP 146 will be longer in testing as looks like a few options need to be addressed with this latest insider and maybe others after too...

    Have in TV4 adjusted the 'turn off network adapters during oobe' to work when the build is not a 22000 Home/core install.

    So Pro and above on 22000 and above that build should now let the option operate... Core/Home on 25131 also allows that option to work - temporary test at moment.

    But i may have to change it back if the next insider build above 25131 has issues with it....

    Just Lately I began to understand, how it actually works.
    mxman2k what software you using, to pack it into a small .exe file.
    ( I have some good guesses - Bat_To_Exe_Converter ? QFBC ? StealthBatch ? )

    It seems on w11 build 25136 that some elements of the theme are not setting still..

    System to use 'Dark Mode' option is one such part that not appear to 'take' even though the registry values was set :g: -- When manually setting using the registry tweak for dark mode later after install it works...

    Also with notepad, on this build, it now seems to be a 'App' version so the text highlight color not work on it either, but does on other non App programs...

    But it is hit and miss if the highlight color works on all other non App's too, most strange!

    As it is an insider/preview build i not want to spend too much time 'fixing' those areas until it is closer to its non Insider state as things can change from update to update with it.
