First test your theme in windows style builder or vista style builder which ever you have if it works then OK. Now save it to your desktop. Rename it to whatever you want to. Create a new folder on your desktop, and give it the same name. Open that folder and create another new folder inside that one. Rename it also to the same name. (Make sure that the name is exactly the same!)

Now paste your .msstyle file into the second folder you created.

Copy one of your existing themes's .theme file and paste it into the first folder you renamed. Rename that to your themes name. Open that .theme file with notepad (Right click and open with notepad) Inside the notepad file you will see places with the original themes name. All those names you have to change to your themes name. Exactly the same. Save it. In there you will also see paths to your cursors and wallpapers. Take note of these. You now have to open the second folder you created. (The one with your .msstyle file inside.) in here create a wallpaper folder (Make sure it has the same name as inside your .theme file. Take the en-US folder as well as the Shell folder from the same theme you took the .theme file. Open the en-US folder and rename the .msstyles.mui in there to the same name as your themes name. Remember that the file extensions must remain at the back. Save. The Shell folder you can leave the same.

So on your desktop you will now have a folder that says (I will just give it a name) Blue. When you open this folder you will have another folder that says Blue. Also you will have your Bluetheme file there. Open the Blue folder. In there you will have a wallpaper folder (With your wallpapers inside. Names the same as what it is in the Blue.theme file.) You will have your Blue.msstyle file, the en-US and Shell folders.

Double check that all your names are 100% the same everywhere. (The theme will not work if just one error!) Check that all the names in the Blue.theme file is Blue, and that the paths to your wallpapers are correct and that the names are the same as in the wallpaper folder.

Done. Now paste the Bluetheme file and the Blue folder into your C:\Windows\Resources\Themes folder and check it! P.S. If you still can't get it working send it to me and i'll see if i can fix it for you. Also if you didn't use the Windows  Aero default theme as the base your going to want to get permission from whoever theme you modded before posting it bud.
