-> this means that either you have not Desktop Experience installed and/or Theme Service is not started.
Well that makes no sense at all, as both the desktop experience is installed (windows defender is in control panel) and theme service is started (aero is working), thats how im running aero in the first place, and thats why i want to use the converter to get custom themes.
I tried it on a different machine and the same thing happened, so im thinking it maybe something _I_ do differently.
For example, i have a hacked set of shell32.dll, imageres.dll, and shellstyle.dll that i insert into my installations, to do things like remove the "folderband" and remove the "UAC" icon beside any admin level functions.
Its very annoying as a professional user to have this little shield next to every admin level command/program, so i hacked it out.
Would the converter have a reliance on one of those dll files?
The fact to have modded dll has nothing to do with it at all. There must be a problem somewhere else. The odd thing is you are the FIRST user to report this error back.
I'll spin a R2 VM over the weekend and check this out.
I'll post when done.
