VB.Net MonthCalendar Aero vs Basic Windows 7 Themes

Hello Experts,

On my dev machine I am running Windows 7 Pro with Classic theme and the MonthCalendar looks different than when I run my app on Windows 7 Basic theme. The number one problem is the size of the MonthCalendar is different and it's throwing off the design of my form. See attached picture. Any ideas?

Open the project properties and uncheck "Enable XP visual styles"

When I do this, it changes the control to a different size! This is now 3 different size controls. The Basic, Classic, and XP Visual Styles disabled. This is absolutely crazy. There has to be a way to make these controls all the same size, so it looks the same on every machine.

Then on Classic Theme it's going to look weird with too much space, plus I have dozens of forms with this control.
