Solution 1

If I understand correctly, you have a large monitor and did a simple UI design taking that into account and when other people used your software on their machine with smaller screens, all hell broke loose...

Best solution:
Figure out the minimal screen size requirement for your application and (re)design the User Interface to work with that constraint:
- reduce the number of controls (do you really need that many controls ? )
- move controls into sub-windows ( for example, have an "advanced" button that shows "advanced" or less used controls in a child dialog)
- use different kind of controls;
- use a PropertySheet to split controls into different pages.

The Worse of the Worse solution (IMO):
Put the controls of the dialog in a scroll-able window (in the dialog) and let the user scroll to have access to the controls).
