You understand this theme is being removed from Windows 8 RTM right? – Ramhound Aug 2 '12 at 11:12
The fact of the matter is, I have gotten the Windows 8 RTM trial, and the visual style actually is still there, and it is what gets used for the high-contrast windows 8 themes, since the classic theme is removed. So no, it's not being removed from the rtm. – Alexander Kvenvolden Sep 6 '12 at 1:19

Actually, what I want is for the theme to be built in to the GAC (So that, say, Visual Studio 2010 will use the theme when I switch visual styles.). – Alexander Kvenvolden Sep 6 '12 at 1:20
