Had this for about 5 months. After the new Windows update my theme is back to the factory version and I can't get this one back on.

Having the exact same problem. Tried both UXtheme patcher and the kernel driver. Nothing seems to keep this theme on. After a reboot, it's gone. I hope the author tells of a fix.

Incompatible after doing latest Windows Updates. It doesn't show up at all... even after reinstalling the patch.

Hey this is fantastic! But SOME (mainly system bars) of my title bars there is just a bunch of dashes... Is there any way I can just make them entirely blank like the others?

Hm, but I don't have any box around the title in titlebar (it was there but after a restart it was gone) and there is no text on it) - i.e. I have completely blank titlebar without any artifacts, boxes nor texts.

As for the title and the microsoft way - afair it was working ok with previous version of Work by you.

I installed the theme, font, added reg file yet all my titlebars are empty (no title string). This is kinda problematic - what could be the problem?

That's the way it's designed.  Microsoft in there wisdom has put a box around the text so with any Caption bar themes that have a gradient need to be blank texted.

I'd really love an alternative version with just plain white text. As it is, we can only decide between a huge black block and a very small black block.
I also seem to have the same problem as Zeptinune when right-clicking programs on the taskbar:

That being said, I love everything else about the style and it's probably the best one I've ever used.

Hey I did everything correct(obviously not), but I did all the steps, but only the start bar changed. The bottom turned grey and the windows are also grey, but with black _ [] X buttons(minimize, collapse, and close). I have windows 8.1, 64-bit.

Is there any way you could release a version with larger minimize, enlarge, close icons? Or point me in the direction of changing it myself?

Steer clear of UltraUX! I've had MAJOR issues with it. Black screens, etc. It directly patches system files, which isn't good with 8 and 8.1. Right now I'm using the latest version of UXTheme Multi-Patcher, which is a much better choice. It, unlike UltraUX, only runs as a service, patching through the system memory only, not touching system files (like OldNewExplorer sort of).

The old Work VS applied fine, I downloaded your new version and, for whatever reason, it's not fully applying: imgur.com/oPw7qL1

Anything?

I responded to this back in May.

I'm running Windows 8.1, with Update 1; and am using UxStyle (I previously ran into issues with UltraUXThemePatcher not allowing Windows updates).  Your previous VS worked fine under this setup (when running pre-Update 1), but this version doesn't.

Just wondering... 

I've been using this theme for a long time. It's my "go-to" theme. I've just now realized that my "minimize, maximize and close" buttons don't appear the same as the above screenshot. 

Mine: (min/max) hidden until you hover mouse over:

Your screen example:

Am I missing something?!

I just did a major overhaul of the theme so now it includes the 3 caption buttons as default.  Unless you want the same I wouldn't suggest the update.

Not trying to spam you here, Jamie...

I've now had time to use this vs overnight: No way would I presume to be critical of your work, as I love your designs, have much respect for you, and consider you a friend...
However, some elements of this Redux version need tweaking. The taskbar before was perfect as far as the color, flashes, highlights, system-tray. It perfectly matched the frames around windows, dark. Now it's too light mate.
Also, you did away with the Command Bar...as you do in many of your themes, which isn't always a good thing...It may look sleeker, but it makes the vs harder to use for those of us who rely on the tools in the bar to "select all", etc.
Please skin it and bring it back. I know that I can choose a setting in OldNewExplorer to have it showing, but it isn't skinned because you've removed it from your msstyle. Using OldNew to work around it also gives me an un-skinned details pane.....So using the Default style>Appearance style in OldNew leaves us with no Command Bar.
I like the fact that you changed the close, restore, and min buttons to be like the ones in your Win7 version of Work. But please, please, please add the darker taskbar back and restore the command-bar! I'm willing to even pay you to make the changes I'd like. There are several awesome modifications you've added to this version I think are great, no doubt. But I miss that dark taskbar and the command bar.
