you need to write a manifest file ...
google or thecodeproject should be enough to help you ...

the word you're looking for is "manifest"

hello
i have tried them and also found a msdn link as following:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dv_vstechart/html/vbtchusingwindowsxpvisualstyleswithcontrolsonwindowsforms.asp

both of them works well,but if i put a "richtextbox" control to the win form,it don't work,that means it can't change the appearance,why? from the msdn article i have mentioned,the "RichTextBox" should have a different look(v5 and v6 of comctl32.dll).
