UXTheme patches

By admin | June 10, 2009

In order to discourage use of non-standard themes for Windows that are not from Microsoft, the Windows uxtheme.dll has been designed to check for a digital signature that had to be signed by Microsoft. This creates a problem because many people may not like all the themes that were created by Microsoft or shipped with Microsoft. Microsoft has even attempted to sue people for making custom themes. To counter this, there is a collection of UxTheme patches available on the Internet to use.

To use it, you need to “unlock” the uxtheme.dll. It is found in %SYSTEMROOT%\system32\uxtheme.dll. After unlocking, you can replace the file with the patched version (with the right OS version as well).
