how?



30 seconds on google
http://uneasysilence.com/how-to-use-unsigned-themes-on-windows/



I followed that guide, and installed the new uxtheme.dll and restarted. I downloaded a theme, but the theme doesn't show up in the properties. I put the theme in C:\WINDOWS\Resources\Themes\. The folder I put in the themes folder was "Luna Mod" and in there is a folder called "Shell" and a file called Luna Mod.msstyles. What am I doing wrong?

Myabe you didn't use the replacer program right. First you drag the uxtheme.dll from windows/system32 into the replacer window.....and then you drag the hacked uxtheme.dll into the replacer window.

Try replacing uxtheme.dll again.
