When you try to put a visual style, it automatically puts me a classic style.

Quoting Neil Banfield,
Please post the information from the WindowBlinds about box here.

WindowBlinds version : WindowBlinds 7.4 (99 x86)

WindowBlinds is installed correctly on this PC
WindowBlinds appears to be activated on this PC
Your machine does not support per pixel borders on WindowBlinds skins.

This is because :

Your computer graphics hardware does not support acceleration of per pixel alpha.  WindowBlinds requires this for per pixel alphablended borders as without it performance would be poor.  Please see if you can obtain new drivers for your graphics hardware.  Recent ATI & NVIDIA boards should support this feature.  Onboard graphics tend not to.

The strangest thing that a trial version six working fine, but the seventh in any, or any purchased a trial.

You can use some of my earlier skins, I did not do per pixel borders in them. Should work okay. I know, not much consolation.

Maybe you misunderstood, I did not apply any skins.

Detsle, pleas uninstall Windowblinds completely and run a registry cleaner (such as CCleaner) right after.  Reboot your computer then reinstall Windowblinds and see if that fixes the problem.

Detsle, просьбы удалить Oконные покрытия полностью и запустить реестр экологически чистых (например, CCleaner) сразу после. Перезагрузите компьютер, а затем переустановить Oконные покрытия и посмотреть, если это решит проблему.

At the same time not put on a virtual machine, but on your computer.

Just a thought, if you have previously patched your uxtheme.dll, you need to undo that patch before WB's will work properly.

Is WindowBlinds installed on your OS drive, and are the skins in Shared Documents? This cannot be changed.

Just to clarify...ObjectDock is not Object Desktop.....so the install path needs to be definitely correct...

Detsle, Frankief was referring to other customizing software like msstyles. That software alters system files UXThememes.dll .

You might want to try to run sfc /scannow in Administrator mode (type in search box cmd then right click on that and 'Run as Administrator') to return your Windows system files to the official, correct version of Windows 7.

Then reboot, and try seeing if that helped.

In fact, there are some methods for solving the problem?
And then all this forum about anything, decisions and practices no one offered.
