Have you tried to use true font size like arial?

Control dimensions are proportional to font size, in you increase the font size, button size will increase too.

When you change from small to large (or normal) fonts in the display settings dialog, you may see a change in the value of screen.twipsperpixelx and screen.twipsperpixely.  This also makes your form's scalewidth and scaleheight values change.  So the positions of the controls may also be affected.

I had this problem a few years back, but found no easy fix.  It is tedious to position each control via code, so I opted to require the customer to use a predefined screen setting.  This is not a viable option for most applications.

The only thing I can suggest is do not assume that the value of twipsperpixel=15, sometimes it's 12.
