Everytime I try and load a windowblinds skin it keeps saying this.

I have the most updated WB6 and I have Vista, and am using Vista Ready Skins, also I have tried loading it as a wba and switching it to a zip folder. neither work for me. What is wrong?

I have the most updated WB6

 

Click on the System Info tab in WB and copy/paste the info here.  Make sure WB configuration window is closed when you install a skin, the easiest way is to just double click the skin and it will do the rest.  Then open WB and try to install.  But please, do the System Info thing I said first so we can ensure you have the latest build.

usually indicates one of 2 things

- the .wba is actually a .zip with other things inside in addition to the .wba (in which case change the extension from .wba to .zip or just unzip in place and see what's inside)

- bad download - if you used a download manager, don't

Also occurs when wba file path contains Unicode characters - WindowBlinds can't handle Unicode paths.

 This was probably helpful information......Six years ago.

It is good seeing Bichur and Messiah 1's avatars again, even if it is a necrothread.
