Hi experts
I wonder why the same Winform program looks different in different PCs.
Both PCs use Windows 7.

Could someone tell me how I might fix it.

Please refer to the screenshot.

Thanks.

What about other programs on the machine with classic look? Are they also look classic? Can you check for example notepad?

It is then the Windows 7 personalisation. Right click on the Windows Desktop and select Personalise. It will open the Control Panel->Personalisation. I bet it is Windows Classic that is selectedpersonalisationSelect any Windows 7 Aero theme, and you will get your nice controls back
