"There was a problem loading a pre-set color" - Windows 8

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I tried installing this tweak to enable Aero on my machine and now every time I click on the Color under the Color and Appearance menu I receive an error "There was a problem loading a pre-set color".

Has anyone seen this before? How can I fix it?

I googled it but couldn't find anything.

By chance did you use that AeroGlass mod for Windows 8? I had this issue too on Windows 8.1 RTM and found if you use the mod, you need to use the installer and install Aero Glass with the custom swatches, reboot the PC then uninstall it and reboot again and it *should* work.

Yes, I did.

I extracted the files into my themes folder. I don't think it was actually installed. I can't find it under Add/Remove Programs.

I removed all the files from the directory that I extracted them too, but it didn't fix the problem.

Try this.

1. Go to http://glass8.berlios.de/download.html and download the installer.
2. Install Aero Glass with custom swatches checked.
3. Reboot and try loading up the colors (they should load up the custom ones).
4. Uninstall Aero Glass and reboot again.
5. Profit?

Thanks so much!

That fixed it : )

Really appreciate it. I tried it remotely from work and it worked. I'll uninstall Aero 8 once I get home to.

Excellent! I believe it's a known issue when using that Aero Glass mod. Hopefully that helps anyone else whom is encountering that issue too! smile.gif
