    I have been websearching for ever, and finding this question asked many times, but never answered....

    Is there anyone, ANYONE, out there who has successfully imported a new skin into WMP on a Treo 700w? Can it actually be done?

    [PS - Please do not post a link to some "just copy the files to the Media Player folder" directions. I am looking to her from someone who has actually gotten this to work, if such a person exists....]

    Well, after messing with it all morning, I finally did. I tried to mimic what is going on with the default skins (the .skn file in \program files\windows media player point to a .skn file in \Windows).

    I assume that the treo won't show any skins that don't have these values set to this in the .skn file:

    Dimensions 240, 240
    Orientation Square

    Once I took a 240x320 .skn and changed it to 240, 240 and changed the orientation to 'square', it now shows in the WMP skins list.

    Hope this helps!

    I've done it on the wx. If you put it in the \Program Files\Windows Media Player directory, you can set the skin in the options under WMP (Options | Skins). I'm using the WMP11 - Square skin I found in a skin pack in the SBSH forums. It looks awesome!

    Here is the specific Vista skin file for WMP. Square theme included. Copy to the Windows Media Player directory under Program Files.

    I got this skin from a full skin pack here

    Thank You!

    This is the first to work of all the skins (even square ones) that I have tried! Maybe now I can figure out what the difference is between this working one and the non-working ones.

    Thanks again!

    Where do I UnZIP these files to? And do I copy all files inside this ZIP file to one directory?

    unzip on pc, it will create a new folder with all the files you need to copy. Select all of the files and drag them to \Program Files\Windows Media Player folder using ActiveSync Explore

    Can it be done on the treo w/o using activesync if you have a program that will unzip files like Total Commander?

    I don't see why not. Resco can do it too. I just always assume users don't have either.
