    XP Style

    Hello,

    I have been trying to get the windows xp style on to my C++ program ( i'm using Dev-cpp), but the only way i have been able to find is by adding a manifest file in the same directory as the program thus the file gets read and the styles work i learnt this from this Link. but i do not wish to have to have this manifest file because if you move the program exe to another directory then the XP syle does not work.

    Does anyone know away of adding the XP Style to the program so when it complies it then can be moved around directorys without the manifest file?

    Also I dont wish to be using RES Hacker

    I would be very thankful for any help on this subject.

    It still wouldn't hurt for you to read up on manifests and comctl32.dll versioning.
