I am attempting to use the MS Sans Serif font in my
app. which appears bold when using the 16-Bit compiler.
All other fonts in my VB3 and VB5 apps appear as a
light font when used in a Win95 system... except the
dll which displays a form compiled in C++.  How do I
modify the font so it appears as a Light font in C++ V1.52 16 bit?
Thank you
Dan

How are you using the font?  Are you calling CreateFont() or CreateFOntIndirect() to do the drawing yourself? If so, supply the code and I'll tell you what's wrong with it.

Or are you refering to the font on a dialog box that you've drawn and are creating from a resource?
