after working several Years with an older ProfUIS Version i upgraded some Month ago.
My Application was delivered using "CExtPaintManagerOffice2010_R2_Black" Skin.

Using the new Version the Skin Looks different, there is something like a horizontal Colorfade which isnt really Looking good.
Is there a way to get the old look ?

So...some steps further but still waiting for help.

I Need to Keep using "CExtPaintManagerOffice2010_R2_Black" because this Product is a Part of a Product Family.
Other Tools (Delphi using Alphatools ) are Looking the same. So changing to an other Skin is no Option.
After reading some other Questions here i try so overwrite the Function:

To initalize i call g_PaintManager.InstallPaintManager(new CMyPaintManager);

class CMyPaintManager : public CExtPaintManagerOffice2010_Impl
    void InitTranslatedColors()

        // Background
        m_mapColorTranslate[CExtPaintManagerOffice2010_Impl::_2003CLR_GRADIENT_DARK] =
        m_mapColorTranslate[CExtPaintManagerOffice2010_Impl::_2003CLR_GRADIENT_LIGHT] = InstallColor(RGB(116, 116, 116));

Now the Background is solid but the Toolbars and all the Rest ist Looking different.

Is there no way just to disable this Fading ? When i upgrade a Tool like this i dont want to Change it´s Basic behavior.
