Trying To Transport Win 7 Theme From One Computer To Another

Last Modified: 2018-01-03
I am trying to install a theme on a new computer.

I am essentially copying the "Theme File" from Computer A's "Users/Lian-PC/AppData/Local/Microsoft/Windows/Themes" directory to basically the same corresponding directory in Computer B.

But, it does not seem to have any effect.

There is something called "Transcoded Wallpaper" that I judge is involved somewhere in this process, but can't figure it out.

Does anyone have any thing to offer on this topic?
