During a PC Transplant Solution Capture from Windows* 2000 SP4 to Windows XP SP2, the desktop theme is changed after the PC Transplant Package execution process is done on the destination computer.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. After the PC Transplant migration process is done on the Wineows XP SP2 computer, log on with the created users that were captured on the Windows 2000 computer.
  2. Right click on the Desktop of the Windows XP SP2 computer and click Properties > Themes tab. You will see that theme will show as Modified Theme instead of Windows XP Theme.

The issue happens if I select any option to be capture under the Desktop tab during the package creation on the Windows 2000 SP4 computer.
