These are bugs with VS2017. Apparently I am very good at finding edge cases. Yesterday's bug was it fails to find a certain function in ComCtrl32.dll. This was annoying because I had written my own function for that functionality and they added one with the same name that did the same thing. My answer was to dig out my old function and adjust its name. Prior to that it wouldn't load resources from compiler DLLs in a static build so that means I have to use dynamic builds and install the compiler's redistributable package. I was not going to require that but since these are captive systems and apps that's not too big a deal. Prior to that, linking with the GetFileVersionInfo API has become completely hosed. This required some real hacks to work around but I had to do something to handle updating the app. I could go on but I will stop there.

I was reporting them but they have ignored the ones I did report except for one they replied to tell me it wasn't a bug. With that one, the behavior in question is by design but happens to be different than in other, related controls. Since then I have stopped wasting my time reporting them.
"They have a consciousness, they have a life, they have a soul! Damn you! Let the rabbits wear glasses! Save our brothers! Can I get an amen?"
