Did you post the right link?

Enabling Windows XP Visual Styles for Windows Forms applications
<URL:http://dotnet.mvps.org/dotnet/faqs/?id=xpvisualstyles&lang=en>
It does works. But it does not work with silent deployment.


Are you referring to no-touch deployment?

By me it does NOT work !!??
Why could this be?
I did everything mentioned in the help file:
Application.EnableVisualStyles Method
and NADA.
No XP form style & Controls.
What can be the reason?

Thanks, adh

OK, here is the solution:
Set the Advance tab on MyComputer (Dummy!!!)
http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;en-us;288186
Enable or Disable Windows XP Interface Components.
--------------------------------------------------
NOTE: Enabling or disabling these components can significantly hinder or
enhance performance depending on the hardware specifications of your
computer. You can enable or disable portions of the new interface by
clearing or selecting a check box: 1. Right-click My Computer and then
click Properties.
2. On the Advanced tab, under Performance, click Settings.
To select all of the check boxes, click Best Appearance. To clear all of
the check boxes, click Best Performance. If you select Restore Defaults,
several check boxes are selected. The default selections are determined
by your computer's capabilities.

FYI, adh
