Theme Generator question

Kind of new to this stuff, and have a pretty basic, (dumb) question. How do I run the theme generator? I downloaded the Theme Generator Beta Source and ran the solution, but I haven't figured out how to create one yet?

I read through the "How To" section and only saw the version where you have to edit the skins and css, etc.

So, any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

I have the same question. I downloaded the Version 1.2 Beta today which is supposed to include Theme Generator, but I do not see any links to initiate this feature. The help link (in learn) is not helpful being in .xps file (whatever it is) and I cannot open it. Help us, the new users to this product. Thanks.

It did not work for me.....sob...I downloaded the binary link, and run themegenerator.exe, ...then, I got the error message as follows.

System.IO.FileNotFoundException was unhandled Message: Could not load file or assembly
'PresentationFramework, Version=3.0.0.0, Culture=neutral,
PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35' or one of its dependencies.
The system cannot find the file specified.

Help me if you can. Thanks, J.

I downloaded the generator to one of my computers with framework 3.5 and I was able to run the themegenerator.exe.
So, thanks for this hint. J.

I want to thank everyone for contributing to this discussion because I am the same as harvdog 13 and am pretty new to this.  This discussion helped me to open Theme Generator and figure it out.
