Use any accent color scheme on non-activated Win8 by AngelWZR Use any accent color scheme on non-activated Win8 by AngelWZR
Well hello there, my dear readers. I'm writing this post for all my auditory, not just for friends from Russia, so I decided to write it completely on English. Русскоязычный текст публикации находится в ее полной версии.

A final build of Windows 8 RTM was leaked yesterday and some of you who already installed it faced a small problem there is no way to use Personalize applet of Metro-style Control Panel. So after some quick look in the registry I found a way to use any of the default color schemes by changing some parameters in the right key. Each of those schemes have an unique number in the selector which presented on the screenshot.

So I created for a you set of 25 .reg files each of them applies it's own color scheme from 25 presented in the system. To install it you just need to double-click file of your choice and answer "Yes" in all popup windows that you will get. After that you need to logout and log in back. That's it, now your system is using a color of your choice.

in rtm the easiest solution I came across was to launch msoobe.exe

%WINDIR%\WinSxS\x86_microsoft-windows-oobe-machine_31bf3856ad364e35_6.2.9200.16384_none_0a295615d4986e02

After choosing the desired color open task manager and kill the msoobe process.
