    Assuming you mean how to get XP to apply its styles to your app, try here.

    Unless you have your XP style "theme" set to "Windows Classic" like everybody I know.

    You need to link your application with an XP manefest file. If you're using VC++ (I don't use this), you will find info at MSDN. Sorry, can't help you further with this.

    If you're using Borland C++ Builder or Delphi, a very nice guy called Mike Lischke provides a free resource file to do the job. See www.lischke-online.de
    OS: Windows XP
    Compilers: MinGW (Code::Blocks), BCB 5

    The link in my (above) post explains how to do it with MSVC.
