    Hello All, i am hoping someone can help?

    Basically we are trying to add a desktop theme in W7 through a GPO through User Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > Control Panel\Display\Desktop Themes

    If i leave the box blank it installs the default W7 profile fine but we would like to customize the theme to a Aero theme, so my question is how do you save a W7 theme so that GP can pick it up?

    We need to save the theme to %windir%\resources\Themes\ourtheme\Ourtheme.msstyles

    So my question is how do i save a theme as an .msstyles??

    We are running Server 2008 and would like to deploy this to a Windows 7 machine

    I have tried saving a theme as a .themepack and that hasn’t worked...

    Is anybody else having this issue?
