Windows Theme Integration

on Thu 14 Jan 2016 - 2:26
This was a problem with WREX81 and still is with WREX100.  The themes for Windows do not integrate into the build.  I have not been able to test the WinReducer theme packs because I can't find them.  I had them when I was working on WREX81.  And not the themes that are for WinReducer itself but the ones like, Abstart, Electron, Space, etc that integrate with the Windows build.

Hello,

As you are a Premium Edition owner, you have the ability to download all WinReducer "GUI Themes" and "Themes for Window" directly form the WinReducer GUI, just do like this :
- "OPTIONS" button
- "CONFIG" button
- "Installation" button
- then you will be able to select all themes by putting all checkboxes on "ON" (=activate)
- Hit "DOWNOAD" button and everything will be done automatically (download and move to correct folder)
- finally mount your Windows Edition and they will be available in "Appearance - Theme Support - WinReducer Theme Pack" tab as a list for your Premium Edition.
- just select one and a preview will be displayed


If you prefer doing it manually, do like this :
- go to the website
- select "SOFTWARE" in the top menu bar
- select "RESOURCES" link
- select "Themes for Windows" link in the page
- then download them one by one in the folder "...\WinReducerEX100\WORK\INTEGRATE\THEMES"
- finally start WinReducer they will be available in "Appearance - Theme Support - WinReducer Theme Pack" tab as a list for your Premium Edition.
- just select one and a preview will be displayed

For the record, you need to check (put on "ON" status) "Activate Theme Support" to be able to use the Windows theme integration !

Thank you very much and I had downloaded all the WinReducer themes but had forgot that you can select Windows ThemePacks too and those are the ones I was looking for.  Thanks!!!  And yes, I ALWAYS have Activate Theme Support on and like I said the WinReducer themes work great but the Windows Themes never get integrated.  Whatever, the default theme is for Windows is all I get after the build is done.

Are you trying to load a windows theme pack from a wccf config file you created ?

Because in this case, I've planned to release today a fix build for this case, and also the January updates catalog Wink

No, it's for new builds and I used the themes again in a new build tonight.  I don't know how everyone else feels but I really like the WinReducer Theme Packs for Windows and would not care if you do away with the Default Windows Theme tab since it doesn't work anyways and not needed with all the nice themes that are provided with WinReducer.

hi,

i have tried the integration with the Electon theme and it worked for me (partly). The cursor worked but installation screen not. Lockscreen and wallpaper didnt work either but i didnt activate windows so maybe thats why?

but i also think that the "Default Windows Theme" tab looks somehow "lost". so maybe merge the both tabs together?

or after selecting an winreducer theme some text should pop up below the dropdown menu with an message like

"Elektron Theme Pack was selected. Theme, Background and Cursor path were pre-configured in the according tabs"
