Consistent Control Color Across Clients

I have found that when I install and execute my VB 6.0 app on certain clients, the controls on the form are not always the same color as they are in the design environment.  Perhaps this is a consequence of the client system color settings.  Nonetheless, I am looking for a routine that will ensure the back and forecolors of my controls remain consistent with their design-time properties during execution.

Thanks.

It is very questionable whether an application should prefer its color preference over the customers color preference but OK.
All colors like forecolor and backcolor of form and button are defined by constants like vbWindowsBackground and vbButtonFace.
In stead of using these constants force them to a fixed color. vbBlack or vbWhite.
In that situation, the colors are fixed.
Note that you have to do that for every form and every control.
