Can anyone tell me how to change the 'progress' color of a CProgressCtrl.  The doc says that it is displayed as the system highlight color but changing that seems risky.  (lol)

You need to get the latest version of the progress control from
http://msdn.microsoft.com/developer/downloads/files/40Comupd.htm and send a PBM_SETBARCOLOR message to it. The lParam is the COLORREF to use.

#define PBM_SETBARCOLOR         (WM_USER+9)

// for a red progress bar
SendMessage(hwndProgress, PBM_SETBARCOLOR, 0, RGB(255, 0, 0));
