Tutorial: How To Use Msstyles On ReactOS

Post by betaluva » Thu Dec 15, 2011 1:57 am

1. once you have installed ReactOS go to c:\reactos and create a directory called Resources,
2. now create a directory called themes in the Resources directory
3. now open the Themes directory,now create a directory with the same name as your theme ( EG: zune.msstyle needs a zune directory) and place zune.mmstyle in to the zune directory
4. now close all directories, click on the start button, now go to accessories,find adminstrative tools and click on "Service Manager", now go down to you see Themes in the services list, now click on "Themes" now go to "startup Type", now click on the drop down arrow and choose "Automatic" instead of "manual" , now go down to "service Status" and click on "start", now go the very bottom of the applet/window and click on "Apply" and then click on "ok",now reboot ReactOS
5. once ReactOS has booted to the desktop, right click on the desktop, click on "properties", when the Display Properties window appears, click on the "Apperance Tab", then go down to the Visual styles drop down list,click on the small arrow and find the msstyle that you want to use and click on it,then go to the bottom of the window and click on "Apply", then click on "ok", now your msstyle should be displaying,if it isnt then start the wholeprocess again and double check your actions.

well maybe the ReactOS website should have a list of tutuorials on the front page of the website (including direct links to the tutorials) or at the very least a link to the tutorials forum.

*attn mod,if this tutorial is not needed then please delete it.
