Force a windows theme

Without using a skinning application.  I am looking on how to force a specific windows theme on an application without changing the current windows theme.

Ex. Current Windows Theme is Windows XP Style using Default Blue for the color, I want my application to use the Windows XP Style theme using the Silver color.

Is there any way to do this.

as far as i know you cant, because the drawing of all objects is done by the common controls internally. and the common controls are drawn by the system.
so you will have to draw all the controls by yourself, but thats like skinning.
