When I converted my VC 2003 project to VC 2005 I became ugly Win95-like, old-style buttons and controls everywhere (in message boxes, file dialogs, etc.). I tried everything with WINVER,WIN_IE, etc. but nothing worked.

So, I created a simple MFC test application with Visual Studio 2005. Before I included Prof-UIS.h, it displayed modern opsystem-like buttons, but after that it had oldish controls.

I’ve seen, that some samples have modern buttons in filedialogs, etc., but I couldn’t find out how they do it.

You need to add the manifest to your application. The FAQ How to enable XP visual themes for my application? may be helpful with this.

In the VC 2005 project settings, you should specify the manifest file in the Configuration Properties -> Manifest Tool -> Input and Output -> Additional Manifest Files. You can see how this is done in our samples.
