    Arrow Custom Themes won't apply PROPERLY ( W8.1.1 )

    To all experienced themers out there, I'm having trouble in applying customs themes on my machine (any themes for 8.1.1; armoured, zero-g, HUD, by design. etc.).
    Everytime i apply a theme, nothing changes on my UI (only cursors, theme icons, folder/settings background color (usually becomes gray of black when i apply a certain theme) will change, the rest remains unchanged. I've attached an image of my desktop using Armoured theme 8.1.1 below:


    As you can see on the personalization window, background is dark gray which is usually the same for other themes when they are not fully applied, also overall window UI of like my folder remains unchanged.

    My Settings:

    All requirements: installed as Administrator
    Native Desktop Resolution: 1366x768 (laptop)
    OS: Windows 8.1.1 updated
    GPU/display Drivers: updated
    Custom Theme Enabler: UltraUXTheme 2.3 which works mostly for everyone except ME (2.4 does not also work), Uxstyle (have worked when I'm on 8.0 but gives me blackscreen afterwards as I was unaware of the issue, so no go for now)
    Other apps: OldnewExplorer 1.1, Aero 1.2.5, Classic Shell 4

    If anyone knows how to fix this or have an idea of what I may have overlooked, that will be much appreciated.

    Thanks for the response, with regards on your link though, that's what I've been actually following(precisely every step) when I tried applying themes from here, unfortunately, I still can't make them to work properly. Gray/Black shade and folder styles remains pretty much the same like on OP.

    I'll try removing all applied mods(stated on OP) later when I get home and then re-apply them one by one again. Hopefully it will fix them. But if you have any suggestions, please post 'em here so I can try when re-installing doesn't work. Thanks!

    From what i see maybe that classic shell application you use causes the problem to your OS mate, also try load HI-TEXTURES theme from personalization window, then apply default Windows Aero one, then try some custom theme maybe that will help, if not i can help you out after week cause i'm not at home atm, also i hope you uncheck that one option in installation of Aero Glass (if you follow instructions on Tutorial). This is it from me for now, when i get back if you don't fix your situation, feel free to contact me!

    Well.. now that you mention it, I have yet to try disabling classic shell, I'll see later when I get home and also try the high texture test you've mention.
    Ps: I've unchecked both options on aero before installation.

    Will update nxtweek if I can finally make it properly work.
    Thanks!
