This is a tricky one!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I've tried everything but I just can't solve this annoying problem.

I got an awesome "Theme" for FF14 from: lllllllllllll.

My issue is my win 7 doesn't recognize the theme pack at all! I have Theme Installer 1.1, doesn't see it either. I tried a bunch of methods online to no avail.

What I tried:

1) Created a custom regedit and merged it with the current. Restarted, didn't fix it.

2) Did sfc /scannow and it came out clean!

I would prefer not to do a work-around as I want to fix the underlying problem.

Thanks!

That theme is corrupted I'm pretty sure because it won't open on my Windows 7 computer either. Just do this. Install 7zip (quickest way is from http://www.ninite.com) . Just right click on the themepack file you downloaded and extract it. Inside the folder you'll see all the desktop backgrounds and a sound file. Manually make a theme that way.

I know it's a work around, but really that is probably just corrupt. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/themes Go there and try a theme from it and I bet it will work.

You may be right on this one.

Yea it should. The .themepack is really just some sort of archive, whether it's 7z, rar, or zip Winrar should be able to handle it just the same as 7zip.
