Export Portable Foobar Theme To Full Installation?

Hello, I've found a portable-only theme that I really like, which I would like to export to a full installation. How would I go about this? Here's what the folder looks like:

Full installation? Both a regular install and portable are pretty much the same except with portable installation all config files are located in one folder. The only difference is with portable foobar2000 does not alter windows registry, this means you can't edit file type association. It makes little sense to call a regular installation a "full installation" and portable somehow isn't.
I always use portable, makes it easy to backup my entire foobar2000 config.

Well I messed up the terminology then, it's not a big deal. The themed foobar that I mention, I downloaded straight up with no installation, just the folder with the files as seen in the image I linked, then I open foobar through the exe.

Anyway I want to export the theme to regular installation because I can't register my played music to last.fm on portable. I hope then what I mean is clear.

As jazzthieve already hinted, overwrite your regular install with the portable install you downloaded. You can find instructions here, substitute things accordingly since you are essentially working backwards:

Always back up your original stuff before trying to mess with it.

Hello, it didn't work. It should look like this:

But with the process of copying the theme portable folder to the regular install foobar %appdata% folder as recommended, it looks like this and the files don't play:

You need to put Buttons and Images folder to your foobar2000 installation folder, e.g C:\Program Files (x86)\foobar2000
