    Hey everyone, just got a problem. Some of my applications force Vista to change its theme from Windows Aero to Windows Basic which really sucks. Is there anyway I can tweak the OS so it doesn't do this?



    Im using Windows Vista Build 6000 RTM

    No, not as far as I know.



    It is a compatibility issue. Some applications and games aren't compatible with the aero theme. Probably because they are using parts of DirectX that directly intefere with the theme.



    I guess the only way to fix it is to wait for the applications to get patched by their respective developer.

    You know he makes a good point here...



    but if you're talking about compatibility issues how come in the windows environment all my title bars and menu bars in a new blue colour yet in any Office 2007 (beta) application (also created by M$) show up in black?



    hehe
