Where can I get the reference of some new API functions,and their declare and involved constants value?
The ComCtl32.Dll file is always in use by windows.
So how can I replace it with my setup program?
If I create my own flat toolbar,does it require the
ComCtl32.Dll file with the Version equal or greater than 4.71?
Thanks.

Many questions...

1. Try at www.microsoft.com/msdn or www.microsoft.com/win32dev for the new APIs that you are looking for (why not giving the function names?).

2. Your setup program can replace the dll that windows are using. It does that by adding a parameter that causes the actual copying to occur after rebooting the computer. If you are  using the VB setup wizard for your application, you'll see that it will require boot.

3. If you are using the windows common controls 3.0 than the answer is yes. It's more than yes, because the client computer also requires Internet Explorer 3.X and up to run your app.
