Hi.

Whenever anyone try to run a program which is not compatible with windows aero vista changes the color scheme to vista basic to prevent conflicts.
This is a normal problem and there is nothing to worry about it.
Sometimes even dream scene is stopped due to incompatibility.

If you have anyother question you can ask me.

Regards
Faraz

Open Personalization by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Personalization.


Click Window Color and Appearance.

Under Window Color and Appearance, click the color you want, and then click OK.


Note

If you see the Appearance Settings dialog box instead of the Window Color and Appearance


window, the theme might not be set to Windows Vista, the color scheme might not be set to Windows Aero, or the computer might not meet the minimum hardware requirements for running Windows Aero. For more information, see Troubleshoot problems with Windows Aero.


Hope this helps.

Tip

Activate AERO - If AERO is disabled or Not working


1. Right click anywhere there is open space on your desktop and left click on Personalize
2. Click on Window Color and Appearance.
3. At the bottom of the Windows Color and Appearance window click “Open classic appearance properties for more color options”
4. Look on the scroll list and see what scheme is set, more then likely it is defaulted to "Windows Vista Basic”, ensure that Enable Transparency is checked.
5. Look at the scroll list and select "Windows Aero" as the new scheme
6. Click on Apply and then click OK
7. When you get back to your desktop you should be able to see the background through the borders of open windows now!

Advanced Troubleshooting – Use these steps if required.

1. From the Start button, type REGEDIT into the Search box, then press Enter to launch the Registry Editor (regedit.exe).
Note: If you did not disable UAC (read my "Disable User Account Control in Windows Vista " article) then you will be prompted to consent to the action you're about to perform. Click Continue.
2. Locate the following key in the registry: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\DWM
3. Modify the following value (REG_DWORD):
Composition-Change the existing value to 1.
4. Modify the following value (REG_DWORD): Composition Policy. Change the existing value to 2.
5. Close Registry Editor.
6. Open an elevated Command Prompt window.
7. In the Command Prompt window, type :- net stop uxsms press Enter.
Wait for the Desktop Window Manager Session Manager service to stop, then type in :- net start uxsms .
8. We *might* need to restart your computer.

Swarm Assault's color scheme is corrupt on Windows 7.


I have the game too, played it on Win 95/98. You can do those for compatibility mode, or XP SP2/3.
Under that is the Settings. You can check all those options there (that's how I did it) and just run it with administrator mode.
There you have it, it's fixed, only problem I'm facing now is the blinking "windows circle" from the start bar. That is all.

How to use aero again after installing vista inspirant 1.1 brico pack


Right click on the desktop. Click on 'Personalize' in the drop down menu. Click on 'Window Color and Appearance'. Then, look for and click on ' Open classic appearance properties for more color options'. Then, from the color scheme list choose 'Windows Aero'. Click 'OK'. It'll say '..please wait' while your screen blinks, or goes grey a few moments. And you're done.

If Windows Aero does not appear on the color scheme list you'll need to find where on your system that the 'Theme' files reside as a possible solution and load them from the 'Theme' choice on the Personalize screen used above.

Lately pictures are all coming out tinged purple or pink. I have been getting a message saying that the colour scheme is returning to vista basic when I open up the photo program. Any ideas? ThanksJon


Make sure that you don't have photo cyan or photo magenta where the plain colors should be, or vice versa, The color scheme is set in printer properties and some viruses can fool with your settings, make sure you run a virus check.

Game/Vista


One issue I have had with vista is the color schemes. Sometimes when I play a video with VLC media player, I get a msg saying the color scheme has been changed temporarily to Vista Basic due to rendering compatibility issues. Perhaps your game has the same compatibility issue. If that is the problem, then one thing I would check is your color scheme, and try playing your game with the most basic settings (display and color) and see if that helps. Also I would try updating your display driver if you haven't already.
