Transparency works only on some machines

P: n/a
Hello,

I am sure I am just doing something wrong... I have a userform with an
irregular shape. Just as in my last post, it is just a background with
masked colors (transparency key).

I have changed colors to basic ones to ensure that the color resolution
can match the simple color scheme. However, on another pc, my form shows up
with the colors that should be masked out.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,

More information....

Works on 2 separate machines perfectly, but they are both Windows 2000
machines set at 16-bit color schemes. The other machine is set at a 32-bit
color scheme. Is this the difference and why would that matter?
Thanks!

That, definitely, is the reason that I am seeing what I am seeing (True
Color problem). Now, is there anyway to make this work?? I assume that
there must be, otherwise how could programs be skinned. What am I doing
wrong?

Thanks
