Here is the patch
Download NonUltimateDreamScene.zip and unpack the archive content to a folder.
Right click on InstallDreamScene.bat and select “Run as Administrator” to install Windows DreamScene on your non-Ultimate version of Vista. Answer “Y” to continue. You can also open elevated command prompt with administrator rights and type InstallDreamScene.bat to execute the batch script.
Restart your computer.

You have to delete the DreamScene.dll file from the System32 folder in order to disable DreamScene....
i had to sadly do it since the windows explorer on my Vista Business kept on crashing sometimes after resuming from Sleep....i guess thats the problem with patches...things that are not designed for your system dont work so well when you force them to.

And regarding the .Dream files, you cant use them with this patch, since DeskScapes requires Vista Ultimate in order to install.

I would like to ask a favor of any Vista Ultimate user out there.

Could you please copy the files in "C:/Windows/Web/Windows Dreamscene" and upload it somewhere for us? Since we're not actually getting Microsoft's updates, we miss out on those great videos by Microsoft. It would be much appreciated! :)

Thanks Jatin, but that's only four of them... There's several more I think

Hey guys, i ran the batch file as administrator and rebooted. Then when I go to personalise>desktop backgrounds the options there are still the same as previously (no mention of dreamscene). However there is a Dreamscene folder in Windows>Web, i even downloaded one of the movies mentioned here and put it in that folder but still nothing. I've got aero enabled and the video plays fine in VLC. Any ideas?

Thanks

Never mind, i got it working using these instructions

1. Download the patched DreamScene files as above and unpack to a folder.
2. Copy DreamScene.dll to %WinDir%\System32\ folder.
3. Copy DreamScene.dll.mui to %WinDir%\System32\en-US\ folder.
4. In Windows Explorer, navigate to %WinDir%\System32\ folder.
5. Right click on themecpl.dll file, and click on Properties on right click menu.
6. Select the Security tab, then click Advanced.
7. Subsequenly select the Owner tab, click Edit button. Press Continue (or log in if you’re not Administrator) on any User Access Control prompt.
8. Select your Vista logon user name, then click OK button. Then click OK in any dialog window that pops up, and press OK again at Advanced Security Settings window.
9. On Security tab, click the Edit button. Press Continue (or log in if you’re not already an Administrator) on User Access Control prompt.
10. Click Add button, and click on Advanced button. Next press Find Now button, and then select your logged on user name. Press OK when done.
11. Click OK again on Select Users or Groups dialog.
12. On Permissions for themecpl.dll window, highlight your user name, and check the box next to “Full Control” under “Allow” column. Hit OK when done, and confirm any message. Click OK twice to exit from ownership taking process.
13. Rename the file themecpl.dll in %WinDir%\System32 to themecpl.dll.original.
14. Copy the patched version of themecpl.dll to %WinDir%\System32\ folder.
15. Repeat step 4 - 12 on themecpl.dll.mui file located in %WinDir%\System32\en-US\ folder.
16. After taking ownership, rename the file %WinDir%\System32\en-US\themecpl.dll.mui to themecpl.dll.mui.original.
17. Copy the patched version of themecpl.dll.mui to %WinDir%\System32\en-US\ folder.
18. Create a new folder in %windir%\Web named “Windows DreamScene” (without quotes). This is the location to place all your videos want to set as DreamScene wallpaper, and can be easily configured via Control Panel Personalization applet.
19. Lastly, import and merge DreamScene.reg to registry.
20. Reboot computer.

Hey all!

I tried the auto patch via running it through command prompt with admin privileges, but after it ran, i right clicked on the desktop and said personalize and all i got was the page cannot be dispayed.

So i restarted and it still came up with the error. In the personalize window, it just says the page cannot be displayed in the center.

So i then restored, tried it again, and the same thing happened. I havent tried it manually yet though. Im currently using Windows Vista x64 Home Premium. The fact that it's 64 bit wouldnt be the problem would it?

Please help!

Thanks,
Brett

Im currently using Windows Vista x64 Home Premium.

I think it is the problem.

That's what i thought...thanks.

Someone should specify that this patch only works with x86 Vista. I wonder if i manually install it if there's a way to make it work on x64 Vista though...
