Operating System Support:
Windows 10 21H1 _ Windows 8.1 _ Windows 7 _ Windows Vista _ Windows XP [X64 _ X86]
Note: In rare cases after the Windows 10 Creators Update, the patcher is not able to take ownership of the necessary files in c:\windows\system32 (uxtheme.dll, UXInit.dll, themeui.dll).
Only solution today: Sign in as Administrator, take ownership to the 3 files and grant full authorization, reboot and afterwards use the patcher again as Administrator. The modification should work now.
if its not work use uxthemepatcher from uxthemepatcher.com
|Problem – Patcher is patching, but after a reboot nothing is modified|

|Problem – After patching on Windows 10 and login into, the PC get black screen and reboots|
|A 4k monitor or higher uses a special resolution, therefor themes are necessary that support 200% DPI (e.g. here)!|
|Problem – After uninstalling the monitor remains black after restart|
|Fast Startup/FastBoot is the problem. 1) disable Fast Startup, 2) shut down (do not restart), 3) boot up, 4) uninstall UxThemePatcher! For more information have a look at detailed tutorial. Is this too late, only a repair installation (inplace upgrade) or a complete new installation helps.|
|Problem – Completely undo changes|
|First, always a standard Windows theme should be set, otherwise it may cause problems when booting (see problem 3). Thereafter, the application should simply be removed through software -> uninstall. All backups will be restored so the original files are back!|
|Problem – Display errors in the taskbar after update to new Windows Version|
|Themes of older Windows Versions are not compatible with Windows the latest Version. Therefore, please contact the developer of the theme, I can not help you here!|
|Problem – SFC.exe finds modified system files|
|UXThemePatcher works that way! It modifies your system files to make 3rd party themes available. If you do not wnat this, you can not use my application, sorry!|
I copied all these files as described. Now what? There are no new themes…
Got it! Thanks.
does anyone know if this works on 10586.494 the latest version
I got a problem with the last step: this stupid ”TrustedInstaller” don’t let me replace the themeui.dll file
use this method in the 3 files, giving right permission to files its the best way to do it……… mouse right click on themeui.dll >properties > security > advanced > user > tick everything > apply………………..
