I would like to know how to change the Windows 7 Theme programatically.

I have not been able to find any information about an appropriate API. Is there another solution?

I am using Visual Basic from Visual Studio 2010 Professional.

I don't have a specific answer, but if you are looking for something that will help you, I would concentrate your efforts looking through what the Windows SDK can do for you.

Welcome to the Windows SDK
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms717358.aspx

The Windows SDK for Windows 7 and the .NET Framework 4 (later referred to as Windows SDK) contains tools, code samples, compilers, headers, and libraries that you can use to create applications that run on Microsoft Windows. You can use the Windows SDK to write applications that use the native (Win32/COM) programming model or the managed (.NET Framework) programming model.

Thanks TheLearnedOne for the info. There is certainly a lot of information there. I have had a look but I can't see the information for Theme Changing.

Is there anywhere other than the SDK where this should be documented?

That SDK is very large, and I know that there is a complete lack of discoverable resources on changing the Windows 7 theme.  My hope was to focus your attention to the most likely place to find your answer.
