afxMessageBox problem with hebrew in vista

Hi,

I have an application that uses in many places a AfxMessageBox to display messages to the user.
Until now i did not have any problems displaying the messages in english and hebrew. If i was in Hebrew mode then i changed the AfxMessage flags to Flags |= (MB_RIGHT|MB_RTLREADING) - i override the DoMessageBox method of CwinApp;
On vista i have a problem that messages in hebrew sometimes do not fit the window size and are cut in the middle.
This is very strange because on other OS i have no problem.

seems like it is because of the font you are using.
have you changed the font you have been using in past or its size?

In Vista, we use a different font for it being cleartype compliant.

If you want a safer solution, you can use a custom made MessageBox, like:
http://www.codeproject.com/KB/dialog/xmessagebox.aspx
http://www.codeproject.com/KB/dialog/MessageBoxDialog.aspx
http://www.codeproject.com/KB/dialog/CPPMessageBox.aspx

so you can change the font by your own.
