UXTheme.dll won't patch after Installation

Post by ITinerant » Fri Aug 26, 2005 1:10 am

Here's the story. Looks like it's not an nLite issue.

I'm hoping this is important enough to someone else besides me.
Has anyone else experienced this issue?

ok first off let me get the laughs out of my system :lol:....:lol:....:lol:
ok i think i want to cry but here we go
the program he is using to patch his uxtheme is for an older version, since i dont really have a msfn user someone plz tell that dude all he has to do is download the already patched uxtheme.dl_ that ryan has on his site, add it to his source(i386 folder) then create the image, and voila, its patched hahaha :lol:

I tried that first "dude". :rolleyes: and when it didn't work I went the old fashion way. In fact I made a total of six different installation discs and six different installations later, none with the update packs (either with the uxtheme.dl added to the source i386 folder) or patched after installation worked. I didn't come here to trade insults, only to look for a solution.

Update: It seems that when that uxtheme.dl is replaced is crucial. It needs to be done after all the intigrating (and perhaps nLites adjustments)

Anyway, it's working now. RyanVM's update packs especially with nLite Rock. Thanks very much for all your hard work.

Didnt mean for it to sound like and insult, sorry if it did, excuse my english, what you have to do is wait for all updating and mods, then place downloaded uxtheme.dl_in your i386 difrectory, because if you place it before any mod then it will be changed and if you place it before update integration it will be replace.....

best way would be
1 copy source files
2 updaqte with ryans pack
3 (optional) make changes with nlite
4 make changes to disc add oem etc.
5 replace uxtheme.dl_ with patched version from ryans site
5 create iso

this way you can be asure that the uxtheme.dl_ patched wont be changed or modded

Thanks. That's exactly what I did and it worked great!
(Where were you yesterday when I started this project? :rolleyes: )
Anyway, all's well as ends well.
Thanks dgelwin.

I hope this is not too off-topic, but I don't feel it deserves its own thread. Are uxtheme.dl_ and tcpip.sy_ patched from the latest versions of their respective files?

Just to confirm, i just checked and they are the latest versions of the files found in the newest hotfixes.

uxtheme.dl_ = KB319740 - MFC applications leak GDI objects on computers running Windows XP

tcpip.sy_ = KB900387 - Windows XP uses Offline Files feature even on fast connection after setting "Configure Slow Link Speed" Group Policy

syssetup.dl_ = KB894871 - File Signature Verification tool reports that some drivers are not digitally signed after using Sysprep tool

Yeah, I put the relevant KB number behind the hacked files so people can look at the hotfix list and see that they match.
