Detect XP themes under .NET 2.0?


I'm trying to detect if XP themes are enabled or not in code. This not as
easy as it seams, however. I thought Application.VisualStyleState would be
of a lot of help, but unfortunately, it was not.

Basically, I need something similar to this:

If LegacyOS Then 'W2K, W98, WME
return False
ElseIf OsSupportsThemes Then 'XP, 2k3, Longhorn
If ThemesEnabled Then ' Application.EnableVisualStyles was called,
or manifest is present
Return True
Return False
End If
End If
Is there a method I'm not aware of in the .NET 2.0 framework, or a good way
to do this?
