Same application looks different on another machine

Hi yet again!
Shawn Halfpenny here again... I'm full of questions today :-) Here's a weird one for you. I made an application in Delphi 1.0 and it works and looks fine on my computer. I sent it to my friend in L.A. and he installed it. He tells me that he's missing a portion of the screen and that there are buttons missing that should be there. Weird. Of course, he cannot get it to work as there are various buttons and components missing. I got him to take a screen capture of what he sees and e-mail it to me. It looks like there's about an inch missing from the far right hand side of the screen and about an inch missing from the bottom. That's where I had some buttons placed, so of course they are missing too. I would like to send you the screen shots (.GIF files) of both the correct version and the weird version so you can see for yourself. How can I e-mail you these files?
.. This is a very strange problem... other people have used my program and it has worked perfectly fine.
