Visual Studio - VB.Net - One install (out of many) is scrambling my form

I have a Visual Studio project (vb.net) published with OneClick and installed on a dozen computers/sites.

ONE of the installs is scrambling the layout of my main form.

The form uses many nested Table Layout controls and seems to be fine on all the other computers. But, this one has repositioned my controls (putting controls that are designed in one Table Layout control into another).

Not sure if this matters, but most of the edit controls are from DevEx studio.

Can you think of why it would do that on one computer and not the others? And, not on mine when I run/debug it?

And, more importantly, how to fix it?

One of the reasons that can do that is that the user has personalized its display settings. These can be changed through the Control Panel, and they can be configured to that text or other parts of the display are shown bigger than normal.

This plays tricks with some controls or with forms that were not designed to be resized. A form can be prepared for changes in size through the use of the Anchor and Dock properties of the controls it contains. In some cases, you need to put the controls into Panels to control the way they behave when they react when the form changes sizes.

I never did figure out why using Table Layout Panels scramble on just one installation. I checked that computer's display settings and they were at the defaults.

I ended up recreating the form with regular panels instead of Table Layout Panels to solve the problem.

Thanks for your help.
