Controls on Form change size

P: n/a
Hi,

I've developed a Winforms application for a few people. It's a very
basic Form with a few textboxes, comboboxes, buttons, labels and one
PictureView.

With 1024x768 screen resolution the all controls fit perfectly on the screen
(all
of them are visible).

However, with one computer/client I have big problems, since the controls on
the right
side of the Form aren't visible! They somehow seem to have changed their
positions and sizes a little bit.
(based on what I can see from the screenshot I got). One of the labels
increased it's size A LOT.
Everything (every font size, button size, ...) is fixed and hardcoded into
the Form. There is nothing
in the app settings that could cause this kind of behavior.
The app uses the same version of .Net Framework as everybody else (1.1).

What I would like to know is, can Windows settings somehow affect the Form?
Or possibly a
virus or something? What can I check?

thank you,
Saso

Check Display Properties/Appearance/Font Size
Some people make this a large value to make small text readable, but it
messes up much of the formatting in apps.
