uxtheme

For all you Windows users I can confirm that the uxtheme patcher from WindowsX will patch Windows XP SP2 RTM successfully. For those of you who do not know what uxtheme is here is a short explanation. uxtheme.dll resides in c:\windows\system32 and provides the interface for loading Windows theme files (known as Visual Styles). The standard Microsoft version will only allow for signed visual styles to be loaded. This is not ideal as there are many free visual styles available but are not signed because Microsoft does not allow us to sign our own. A great resource for visual styles is available at the Neowin Forums.
