I must have something else going on.  Here is the exe you sent me.  Maybe there is something weird with my computer.

What version of Windows is that? The application does not look like it is Themed.

This laptop is Windows 7 which is probably the problem.  I ran your exe on another laptop with Windows 10 and there was no problem.  Also I created a new project with buttons a tab controls and everything worked fine.  Any hope for windows 7?

Hmmmm.... that is odd. It should work on all Windows versions from Vista onwards. I will create some test cases for you (I will also see if I still have a laptop with Windows 7 installed!).

I am pretty sure that Jose used Windows 7 most of the time while he was writing the WinFBX library. WinFBE uses the CxpButton control for all buttons that the visual designer outputs. So, the problem could be how I am interfacing to the CxpButton control.

Hi Jim,

I fired up Windows 7 in a virtual box and was able to run the exe (see screenshot attached). Everything seemed to look okay. Actually, my version ran with themes active. I am still not sure why your version did have themes active. When you create a new project there is a little checkbox on the dialog that allows the application to automatically create a resource file and manifest file that is needed for theme support.

I don't know.  I switched over to the Windows 10 computer as my development computer and everything seems to be working now.  Thanks for your time Paul. This is a pretty slick product.
