Delphi Forms ,developed on Windows XP have one shape/look, but now those made on the 7 and 8, are different

Hi!
I have a system with 80 routines/Forms.
Almost all, were developed using Delphi 2010 + XP Windows.
These have a visual. Example: rounded corner edges.
But now, new routines, that I develop using Delphi 201 + Windows 7/8.
Are with a different look.
Example: The corners are not rounded, and and  the forms, presents a different blue.
I've tried.
Put in Uses XPman. (in the main form)
But not solve.
There is how  the news forms, become like those made on windows xp ?
Or, all become the new standard?(new look of windows 7/8)
Important:
I need a solution.
Without must change, mys 80 forms/routines  that are ready.
Will be possible ?

Thanks !

Attention: Forms only show the difference after compiled, not in design time.

Hint from About.com is more like this component XPMan, but try it. How looks you app if you set compatibility mode (XP sp3)?

I had already read, that the unit XPMan has the same effect of  XML manifest.
And a colleague tried that and it did not work.

The difference between the Forms, are only two:

1-The corners are rounded, and now not.

2-And the color, forms now, have a more intense blue, on the frames, the four edges, top, bottom and both sides.

I am not prefer, like before or like after, only need, that be all iguals.
Thanks.

Some elements of form/controls in delphi are under windows control (painting borders, etc.). You will never get same look under all versions. Main example is TButton component. Form skinning should help for task like this: http://www.alphaskins.com/

Additionally you can try to set manifest like here:
