This has been what feels like a saga. I had to do a few system restores trying to accomplish this. I've searched everywhere for a solution. I might have missed a thread somewhere on the WWW about this same issue, but for the life of me, I couldn't find it. I'm sorry if this may be a duplicate post.
I recently dumped vista because it started to BSoD every day after SP1. I had to get nvidia beta drivers for ffxi to crash 75% less.
I loved vista because of vistaglazz, and I loved XP 32-bit because of windowsblinds.
But now I'm faced with a problem. I have XP 64-bit installed, and everything is working great, however... I'm stuck with the lame blue/green of yesteryear. Specific version: 5.2.3790
WindowsBlinds 5 doesn't work, nor does the latest. StyleXP bombs out, too. And when I try to patch uxtheme.dll with the patcher, it fails. When I do it manually in safe mode, it works, but everything gets really glitchy. And eventually, as happened yesterday, 32-bit support just breaks. I DON'T know why uxtheme.dll and XP64's ability to run a 32-bit program are related, but I'm in the dark.
Apparently I have Windows Server 2003, I think. I tried looking up 5.2.3790 and that's what I got, but I'm not confident of that.
Anyway, someone, please help. I've been looking into it for seemingly hours and I've almost lost hope. And I really don't feel like starting over again with XP 32-bit.
Oh, and also, if someone has it working w/ XP64, please, let me know of the specific version, would be appreciated.
