Is it possible to have the buttons in VB.NET under WinXP skinned?
In theory, if the FlatStyle property is set to System, it should make the button skinned. But it doesn't.
So, how do i make skinned controls under XP?

PS: Even the MessageBox is not skinned to XP look.

You do have to set the FlatStyle to System but you also have to have a menefest.  The whole thing is discussed in this article:
