Just to pitch in, I remember *ages* ago when XP first introduced
visual styles, a manifest was required to specify using the common
controls library version 6, but also a call to InitCommonControlsEx
was required:

public static extern bool InitCommonControlsEx(IntPtr lpInitCtrls);

I've just rattled that off my brain, and the MSDN page:

I can't test this, since I don't have a suitable test environment.
But, it may point someone in the right direction.
