No XP style dialogs after porting to VC8

3 New Member

I recently ported my project from VC6 to VC8. But while executing them I found that dialogs have not changed to XP style. These dialogs are being shown with same WIN98 style.

However in an editor, dialogs are being shown with XP style only. Is there anything I need to do to get XP style dialogs.

You need to modify the resource file of the executable file.

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  2. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
  3. <assembly xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1" manifestVersion="1.0">
  4. <assemblyIdentity
  5.     version=""
  6.     processorArchitecture="X86"
  7.     name="win32 application"
  8.     type="win32"
  9. />
  10. <description>WindowsExecutable</description>
  11. <file name="gdiplus.dll"/>
  12. <dependency>
  13.     <dependentAssembly>
  14.         <assemblyIdentity
  15.             type="win32"
  16.             name="Microsoft.Windows.Common-Controls"
  17.             version=""
  18.             processorArchitecture="X86"
  19.             publicKeyToken="6595b64144ccf1df"
  20.             language="*"
  21.         />
  22.     </dependentAssembly>
  23. </dependency>
  24. </assembly>
You need to add this text as custom.
And change the custom folder name as 24.

Hi all; A few years ago, I set about porting a PHP application from MySQL to PostgreSQL, after realizing that MySQL wasn't going to be able to handle it. In order to do this, I built a light, fast database abstraction layer which conforms to the behavior of the MySQL functions in PHP. This means that a large amount of porting work could be made simple using this porting layer if the application was originally used PHP's native MySQL...

Hello, I have an application that has been running for years and had little problem with it. We've been retesting the latest code under Windows 2003 and found a surprise.

Hey, I'm trying to find code for an Explorer-style Directory ComboBox.

I normally build a treeview control to do it with,...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows.

For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
