From the documentation of Application.EnableVisualStyles...
<msdn>
XP Platform Note: Visual styles are only supported on Windows XP Home
Edition, Windows XP Professional, and Windows Server 2003.

Hi,

Like shiva stated you need windows xp to use
application.enablevisualstyles. For the xp look and feel on windows 2k you
need to use controls that have the xp style look and feel.
