Using runtime themes on XP Embedded

We have developed a delphi application which uses "Runtime Themes" which basicaly allows us to use ParentBackground/Transparency. The application runs fine on normal XP, however on the version of XPe we have built it does not run correctly. We know the problem has something to do with "Themes" as if we disable runtime themes in our application and run it on normal xp we get the same problem as on XPe. We have searched through the target designer and have added anything with Themes in the name such as uxtheme.dll etc, this does not help.

Does anyone know what the problem is ?

After trial and error and found out what the XPe image was missing... it was a component called "Windows XP Visual Style"

Adding this and rebuilding the image solved the problem of using "runtime themes" in a delphi application.
