    Post 2k/XP manifests... sign here, please :p

    Hi,

    I'd like the common controls I use in my program (e.g. tree views) to draw 32-bit anti-aliased icons like in XP. Apparently it doesn't by default because you must indicate that your program would like to use Common Controls version 6 if it's available (Which is a bit strange, seeing as according to the debugger version 6 is loaded anyway when the common controls DLL is initialised ). To do that, I need a manifest. I've no idea how to make one.

    You may begin.

    P.S.: If I include a manifest in my program, does that mean my program won't work on non-XP (non-comctl32 v6) systems?

    Ah, I see now, dodgy XML shenanigans...

    You can have this manifest as a separate file or as a resource, but is there a way to dynamically link with the version 6 controls (If they're available) at run-time?
