I'm aware of that bug, but since it works on ReactOS, I don't think it's my priority.

Well, it would be interesting to find the bug anyway.
ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes

@ Pisarz, ok , so how do i get it to load/install in ReactOS since double clicking on it doesnt "install" it on ReactOS like it does in Windows XP.

i noticed i had more success if copy lastus.mmstyles to c:\reactos\resources, then create a directory in c:\reactos\resources called latus ( orwhatever name of the theme that i want to use) and then copy latus.msstyle into that directory as well.?

- make directory C:\ReactOS\resources\themes\lautus
- copy the lautus.msstyle to this directory
- start service manager and enable theme service
- apply theme via right clicking on Desktop->properties and choose theme at the appereance tab

You need to restart ReactOS after Theme service is enabled, iirc.

@hillmenta,
And it's why I've compiled my own visual style from sources.
