Q: Do i need a manifest for apps written in Studio 2005?

Hi!
I have written an application in studio 2005, when designing all the buttons
and so on are displayed just fine. When i execute the application i get the
boring buttons like there were in w2k.

Do i need a .manifest file, or what could be the behaviour of this?

Regards
Martin

Martin,

No, you do not, and I don't think you had to do it in .NET 1.1 either.
All you had to do was call the static EnableVisualStyles method on the
Application class before ANY window in your application was created.

Hope this helps.
