What is the difference between a desktopx theme and a suite? They are in two different areas in the gallery download page.

A theme can apply any number of application skins. A theme only applys a DX theme.

WC won't let me edit . . .

A theme is applied by the Theme Manager application: http://www.stardock.com/products/thememanager/

DesktopX Theme

DesktopX themes are single files that when applied by DesktopX can totally change the way your Windows desktop looks and feels. You can use these to create entirely new desktop environments. They're easy to use and can be turned off with a couple of clicks if you don't like one.

Suites

An assembled collection rolled into one file to be applied via Theme Manager

Theme Manager

In looking at the previous post, I've seen that Windows Media player can be skinned by using WindowBlinds and SkinStudio.

I have both but cannot figure out how to make the Media Player skin.

I've tried " Edit in Skin Studio " under the Skin Options tab in WindowBlinds but none of the options seem to apply to the Media Player.

I've tried adding the Media Player " wmplaunch.exe and wmpconfig.exe " to the " Per Application " tab under Settings and selected " Skin this app even if..." and it says " this appication uses an different skin " but I don't know what that means.

 

Also, I've added wlmail.exe to the " Per Application " tab under Settings and selected " Ignore this application and do not skin it " and it " INSISTS " on skinning the area where my messages are and where I would be writing an email. What I really want is just the opposite. I want the top and side panels to skin and leave the writing area white.

 

How can I get WindowBlinds to apply to " Specific Program "? If someone could point me in the right direction it would be appreciated.

 

I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit and WindowBlinds 7.41

 

Regards,

Quoting litdog1,

Use the Corporate WMP skin. WB's will skin that.

That part of Skinstudio was ripper out year ago. Skinstudio only creates skins for WB now.
