Hello, I have two questions: 1. while working on my own win32 wrapper on os vista, the controls appears in a xp style format, how can i modify it to vista style? 2. I want to hide the WinMain struct the same way like in QT, (keeping main() as the os entry function) Any ideas? Thanks for the help! :)

1) They keyword is Manifest. Look into "Common Control manifest embedding". There you'll find XML code that needs to be embedded in your resulting file.

2) Nothing stops you from creating windows from a console style main function. In Visual Studio you can change the system in the project properties to console.
