The home page for Theme Manager says you can import microsoft themes (.theme file). I don't see where you can do this. Am I missing a setting.

Thanks.

I tried it with the Zune theme last night

I opened TMgr, clicked add, browsed to the folder I downloaded it to (had to use the drop down to change file type from .wba, .uis to 'all files'

added in Zune then clicked 'okay'

it then applied Zune


Haven't tried it with 'unsigned msstyles' - I did import one of those into skinstudio and got a 'sks is deleting those components that would be harmful to your system' type of message {maybe it's the hacked uxtheme thing that got deleted), but then the style was converted to a windowblind

I downloaded zune theme, but it is a .msi file. I am referring to older windows 95 type *.theme files. Windows XP is able to read them. I don't know if you remember them. They come with matching wallpaper, icons,folders, sound, stuff like that.
