C# - GUI Resolution problem

Hello,

I build some GUI application using C#. The problem is that on some PCs it looks fine but on other PCs all the controls are "crushed" like in the attached picture.
When the user changes resolution it does not help either.
On Vista application it works fine (although scroll bars appear). The main problem is on Windows XP.
I am new with C# and has no idea how to deal with this problem.

THANKS

Have you deployed your application. Have you created installation wizard for it and installed it on Windows XP?

Try to design your form at the minimum screen resolution you need to use

Thanks for the advice. Next time I design the application I will take this into account.
The problem is that this form already designed (with many controls on it). I designed it on labtop PC with high resolution :(
What can I do now inorder to solve the problem?
Thanks

Hello Margrit,

as alb66 said, Try to design your form at the minimum screen resolution.
to solve this problem you will need to minimize your resolution adjust the controls and then make sure they are running fine or your laptop resolution too.
