Royale Theme just WON'T apply! *after search*


 Share

Recommended Posts


If you do like mazin says, it will work on any version of WinXP.

I have not gotten a custom XP theme to work with the "Royal" theme either. Mine has different icons and wallpaper though, I will post it tomorrow and maybe someone can spot where I'm going wrong... This really p***es me off. :/

but what TOBE gave works only for tabletPC no?

Downloaded EXE works on Tablet PCs only. But if you extract it and use those 4 files (I mentioned), it will work on Windows as ToBe said.

Here's an exe I've made with the Royale Theme, including olive green, silver and blue color style, that works with every version of Windows XP, it also includes the 3D Windows XP screensaver...

Royale Theme All WinXP

This can be installed via svcpack.inf, just add the line Royale.exe without switches.

To have it as default theme when the install is done, add this to winnt.sif:

[Shell]
CustomDefaultThemeFile = "%Systemroot%\Resources\Themes\Royale.Theme"

ok, i'll try this EXE , but how exactly do i call him from svcpack?

Do you have a svcpack.inf?

If so, add the line royale.exe to it under the section [setupHotfixesToRun], no switches:

[Version] 
Signature="$Windows NT$"
MajorVersion=5
MinorVersion=1
BuildNumber=2600

[SetupData]
CatalogSubDir="\i386\svcpack"

[ProductCatalogsToInstall]

[SetupHotfixesToRun]
Royale.exe

Place the file royale.exe in your \i386\svcpack folder.

To use this theme as default, add this line to winnt.sif:

[Shell]
CustomDefaultThemeFile = "%Systemroot%\Resources\Themes\Royale.Theme"

"DefaultThemesOff = No" should not be a problem, but it is not needed as it is the default setting.

This is tested and working, if you can not get it to work with these instructions, some regtweak or something must be wrong.

When your install is done, do you get the classic style start menu, or the default fancy, blue winxp start menu?

I guess I should mention that I have not had a problem installing custom themes on XP, it's MCE 2005 that I cannot install custom themes for :realmad:

Even manually, a new theme can't be fully applied if you set your system to the classic theme. Mostly, Luna theme should be applied before applying a new theme.

I can't tell wether you made the classic theme be the default one.

@Adiel:

If you remove the line DefaultStartPanelOff = Yes from [shell], it will work.

Once again, all you need under the [shell] section is:

[Shell]
CustomDefaultThemeFile = "%Systemroot%\Resources\Themes\Royale.Theme"

:rolleyes:

Taken from ref.chm:

DefaultStartPanelOff = Yes | No

Yes

Uses the classic Windows Start menu and displays icons for My Computer and My Documents on the desktop.

No

Uses the default Windows XP start menu.

Default Value No
