Theming WPF Combobox Saga

So, I wanted to change the color of my combo boxes in my application’s custom theme. This unfortunately isn’t as easy as just setting a single foreground/background attribute for the control.

So I use Blend to generate a template for a combo box and edit the style to get the theming I want. All is good. One of my users runs the software on Windows 7 and it crashes. After doing a little digging, I find that Blend generates a template using PresentationFramework.Aero2 theming as its base. Windows 7 doesn’t have Aero2. Blend should generate the theme using just Aero – ugh.

Anyway, does anyone have a decent WPF combobox template I can use since the one coming out of Blend is useless for general use.
