GeneralProblem with XP graphical interface Pin
limax9-Jan-02 22:20
Memberlimax9-Jan-02 22:20 
There is a simple program (WinAPI only) that creates window and in WM_CREATE handler creates one button with:
HWND hButton = CreateWindowEx(0, WC_BUTTON, _T("Push me: AaBb"),
100, 100, 200, 20,
hwnd, NULL, g_hInstance, NULL);

It runs ok with old comctl32.dll
The problem appears when I want to switch to XP interface and create a file named "my_app_name.exe.manifest" with the following content:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<assembly xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1" manifestVersion="1.0">
<description>Your application description here.</description>

The button DOES NOT CREATE Cry | :((
GetLastError() returns "invalid window handle". What I am doing wrong?

Best Regards,
