You may need some ActiveX controls to make your interface looks like in XP.

The vbaccelerator article that ryancs mentioned is an excellent description of what's required.

vbAdvance has a nice feature that compiles the XP Manifest resource into your app automatically, and it also allows you to use the more advanced XP style icons as your app icon. This makes it a lot simpler to create XP-compatible apps...
