    By default the widgets look like windows classic style. I would like them to be XP style. I read a post on this, suggesting to add some code to Application.cpp concerning common controls v 6.0.0.0. But I don't understand what to do exactly.

    Could anyone explain in a bit more detail what to do to get the widgets rendered XP style?

    Thanks a lot!

     
    • Hi:

      Have you tried OWLNext? https://sourceforge.net/projects/owlnext/
      It supports XP themes, Unicode, Activex, OLE and other cool features.

      Best regards
      Sebastian

    Download ResEdit, create a new rc-file.
    create a manifest.
    Add the rc-file to the project.

    You'll have visual styles…
