Mercurian
Theme for Windows 10 RS2-RS4 Builds & RS5 Build 1809

Firstly, a huge shout out to DarkKnight2264 aka Dark Knight @ virtual customs for going out of his way to port the theme to RS5.
Without his effort, the RS5 edition most like wouldn't exist.
Thanks a mil mate.

How To
You'll need your system patched with UXThemePatcher

UltraUXThemePatcher:
www.syssel.net/hoefs/software_…

You'll also need 'StartIsBack' (check the 'SIB Settings' screenshots included in the zip, for theme specific settings in StartIsBack), to apply the start menu
& taskbar style as well as
 'OldNewExplorer' for windows explorer to look exactly like it is in the screenshot. 
Installation:
(The RS2-RS4 theme & the RS5 theme are each in their respective folders.)

a.Extract the contents of the 'Theme' folder & copy them to: 
C:\Windows\Resources\Themes
 
b.Use the 'Add Personalize Classic' registry file in the zip to add option to desktop right click menu. 
c.From right click menu go to: 
Personalize(classic) >Theme settings 
& select the theme. 

Optional:
Aero Glass is recommended with this theme.

Link to Aero Glass with GUI for RS2-RS4 versions:
(Download the version that is relevant to your OS)
www.virtualcustoms.net/showthr…

Aero Glass for RS5 1809:
virtualcustoms.net/showthread.…

Download the zip from the link above & extract the DWMGlass.dll.
Download & run the RS4 installer & complete the installation.
A compatibility error message will pop up, close it.
Replace the DWMGlass.dll inside the Aero Glass installation folder with the one you downloaded and you're done

Extras:

Mercurian Logon/Lockscreens in 1920x1080 & 2560x1440 resolutions.

Enjoy.

A good alternative to StartIsBack is classic shell/open-shell.

Please make a skin that goes with this theme for Open-Shell

hello, im looking for someone who can make a request of mine.
I want a theme for my windows, dont think it will exist already
Do you take requests?

If so, i have an idea for an Wii (classic) Theme, the openings screen of the Wii. Should not be that difficult i guess, there are only 3 different objects.
let me know if you can or are willing to make it, or where i can ask it

Please, make the download button more visible. It took about 15 minutes to find it.

Decided to theme out my Win 7 as I had done years ago and was looking for a decent dark theme and found your excellent, beautiful themes.  Way better than WB!  My system is patched with the utilities you recommended and everything loads fine like the start orb, but my Nav Bar back/fwd buttons in Explorer are not changing with any theme I've tried.  Is there something I still need to do or a fix for this issue?  Thanks!

you had windowblinds installed on this system?? was it wb 7.1 by any chance?
lilsoldier65's avatar
No, I had WB 10 installed and just couldn't find a theme I liked, so I removed it and decided to do the patching and manual install of styles instead.  I tried a system file repair to see if those buttons were damaged, but they still don't change.

did you install theme resource changer?
lilsoldier65's avatar
Yes.  You think I should try WB again and see if one of those skins will change everything?  It's strange it's just the fwd/back buttons....

can you upload your 'explorerframe.dll' file somewhere so i can take a look at it... you'll find it in:

C:\Windows\System32

& if you've a 64 bit system then also in:

C:\Windows\SysWOW64

if yours is a 64 bit then please upload both.

dont think wb will assist in any way.

I was thinking it's my "explorerframe.dll" as well.  For the snot of it, I reinstalled WB10 and tried a few themes and everything changed like it was supposed to.  Since I have a few HDD images to go back on, I'm able to play around a little without too much worry.  However, at one point, I did use "Customizergod" to change my Nav buttons for some of the themes I tried a little bit ago.  Maybe that corrupted my dll(s).  I have found a theme in WB in the last day that is what I was looking for, so I'm not going further.  If you really want to see my dll's out of curiosity, I could still upload to you.  Thanks for your replies and time otherwise and keep up the great work.
