so does this still work in SP1?
Yes tested and works just fine because SP1 does not update the affected files the theme modifies.
it just seems to revert them to the unmodified version it.
What do you mean?
Ofcourse you have to reapply the patch after SP1 install because it overwrites the modified files with default ones, but i guessed that should have been obvious.
Also the UxStyle Core software seems to work ok on SP1.
Can anyone advise how to change the colour from blue to something different,have tried but just end up with white toolbar etc and theme can not be loading correctly. I have also tried the later version of uxstyle which does work with sp1 and your blue bars but not my version of colours.
Thanks for any assistance
Are you creating your own color files or do you use others posted here?(red,black etc).
When creating your own it's not as simple as changing color.The file has some transparency.
Tomorrow, I was using your blue files and then trying to change colour, any hints on how to do correctly please. Am pleased with blue bars but would like to play with different colours.
Do not worry if not easy thing to describe as am happy to keep blue bars,
Im afraid i don't have the nessesary skills to create new colors.So can't help you on this.
this works but changes the bar on winrar and firefox also, dont mind but is that normal?, also can the uxstyle thing be uninstalled after and keep the blue?
You need to login to view this posts content.
That's because winrar and firefox use system bars so yes it's normal.For example if your firefox theme is non default with it's own green bars then it stays green.UxStyle must be kept installed to use any third party themes/theme mods.Besides it's small.Sub 500KB service that uses no cpu.
Thanks, Office 2010 retains the green thing, how can that be changed?
Presumably by modifying it's resource files(im not using it so dunno what file to edit).
Thanks. Great mods
cool, i really like those blue bars bro
edit: Nevermind I found out the problem I was having.
Thanks, cool blue bars.
Win. 7 Ult. SP1 64-bit
I used this thread last year to get the blue bars and it worked perfectly, but upon installing SP1 when it was released, I still have the progress bar, but I can only use the Win. classic theme. Trying to enable any style that's Aero-based will show that it is applied, but my task bar and window buttons still have the classic style applied to them (as shown in the picture provided). Anyone have a fix for this?
You need to re-patch uxtheme to use Aero, otherwise to will stay classic.
please REupload the final "DARK_progress-bars" for win 7-64 (and also for 32 bit when possible)
the links in this thread are all dead
thanks in advance
