Hi,
 
There have been a few mails in the past about getting XP "look and feel" working with Win32::GUI. I came across the following while searching for something completely different:
 
http://search.cpan.org/~mbarbon/Wx-0.18/Wx.pm#Windows_XP_look
 
It is an example of what need to be done for the wxWindows GUI toolkit - I've no idea what needs to be done to get XP styles working for  Win32::GUI but it might help someone figure it out:)
 
Cheers,
