Unsigned themes in Vista x64

Recommended Posts

HI Peeps Please dont flame me ive checked the forum for mentions of this & couldnt find anything to really help me out...Anyway to my prob..Ive been trying to make a batch file that patches Vista x64 for you & its really P*ssing me off..When I run it Vista's security kicks in F*cking it up...If I go into UAC controls for users & shut that down all 3 files copy over or rather it says they do..? My problem is It doesnt seem to work properly cos I can see bits of the new theme but not everything..This leads me to think its only patching 1 or more files..Not even sure if this is possible lol...

Ive tried putting the 3 .DLL files into the $$/system32 folder also & this doesnt work as on first startup it just says there not there...Can someone shed some light on this as ive only got so much hair left...Thankz Prophet07

Thankz will give it a try & let you no if all is ok..
