XP Style Buttons

P: n/a
Hi
I'm new to VB.NET. I've developped a VB.NET application. But the BUTTONS on
my form or any Message Box(MsgBox) contains, are NOT the Windows XP style
buttons. I want the XP style buttons to my entire application. I've also
created a Manifest file and put it in my application's folder. But if the
manifest file is present in the same directory the Application does not run
!!!

Plz help me

Did you set the FlatStyle property of the buttons to "System"?

NET 1.0:

Set the controls' 'FlatStyle' properties to 'System', then add an application manifest.

Tools
