It usually asks if you don't unblock an executable.
Ok time to post a new theme. Originally when it started, I was using a Robot Dragonfly as a background, and got the theme colors off of the wallpaper.
- @kado897 -- Wallpapers
- @Hopachi -- Cursor
- @Superfly -- SMACC, without this color chooser too, I would never have gotten these colors right, and with the help of the preview window, made the creation faster.
- Myself -- for the system colors settings and putting everything together.
Here are the screenshots of the final iteration:

Here Is a screenshot of the included wallpapers and the mouse:
NoteThe complete theme requires four elements to be downloaded:
- Themepack that includes system colors and wallpapers
- AccentColorInactive reg file to set inactive title bar color
- A link to download the custom cursor
- One additional wallpaper to be set as Lockscreen
To download the"Delta45 Neon Green"
also many other custom cursors are at this thread in Eight Forums
One additional wallpaper from kado897 to be used as the Lock Screen
Instructions to apply your new Windows Aero Hybrid Theme
1.) Downloadall parts(Themepack, Inactive Title Bar accent color regiastry file, any additional wallpapers, and go to any provided links for extras, such as cursors).
2.) Once files are downloaded, right click each file and unblock them(a small checkbox on the bottom right corner of the General tab)
3.) Zipped files need to be extracted by right clicking and choosing Extract(to any place you wish, I have created a Themes Library folder for this myself, but to Documents, or Desktop is ok too).
You can now delete the Zip files and/or themepack if you wish, once they are applied. Although... I recommend, if you like the theme, save the zipped files somewhere other than the system(C:) drive(backup).
4.) Then you just click the Themepack & any additional registry files to apply them. Also place any additional wallpapers in your Pictures library, and add them to the theme or apply as Lock Screen.
Note: To uninstall the theme: just go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Personalization change to another theme, then right click the one you don't wish to have any more, and delete it.

Congrats Cliff! This is one major release!
The first is included in the theme; logically the second can be added at the same location: looks good.
However, it doesn't work like this, just tested.
Any other theme (ini) sections we could test?
Unless [VisualStyles] in the theme isn't the right location for this and/or [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\DWM] isn't the same thing, although it says current user... so far the registry files are needed separately for this.
Nice to see how well you geeks work together. Congratulations, a really nice theme
