As some people reported strange issues with version 11.0, I tried improving UxStyle to be more compatible in Yosemite/Windows 8 updates. Back then I used to have issues too like restarting computer and get classic theme on startup, changing theme but get classic theme sometimes. But now I haven’t seen any problem like that anymore in Windows 7/8/8.1. I think it’s ready for pushing another update to make sure everything is sorted out well.
After long month of visiting parents, I’m finally back to my place now so I started fixing UXTheme project right away. I’ve resolved issues more than I thought so I think everyone should reinstall this version to make sure that your theme engine is in touch without fail. For users having trouble with glass having redrawing bugs in iTunes, fade effects and so on, Re-installing without Aero glass transparency can fix it but you’ll lose transparency support in return.
I planned to release UXTheme patcher updates with 8/8.1 glass support yesterday someone reported UXTheme Multi-Patcher caused infamous black screen bug just before releasing it… Well, I was terrified. How could such a service patching theme engine files through memory patching lead to this? So I digged up some search about ‘UxStyle black screen’ and found these
Further investigation reported that even Microsoft update itself randomly caused it sometimes. Although the chance to get black screen from UxStyle is very low but I’ll apply permission fixes to all related files hoping this will secure your system from black screen bug after patching. If you have any Transformation/UX Pack installed, please reinstall UXTheme Multi-Patcher to make sure you won’t get in trouble after applying updates. I’ll update Windows 8 projects soon with these issues covered.
After releasing LiveTuner, I came to the realization that all other projects’ user interface should be unified with the same UX style as well. So today I’m starting with UXTheme Multi-Patcher project. Aside from UX style, I also added more information about detected operating system that could help asserting situation when things go wrong.

It’s been so long since last time I updated this project. Back then there was hardly reliable Windows 8 patches. Since I started to apply UxStyle memory patching in previous release, I planned to make complete memory patching build in next version so all Windows since XP can use this without trouble and now I can do this after releasing OS X Mavericks updates with Windows 8.1 support.
