VFP Forms and Windows Vista Aero
VFP has some problems with Windows Vista Aero. (Aero is the rendering style in Windows Vista that makes window headers and borders appear semi transparent). VFP forms have trouble with this rendering style, unless the user is logged in as administrator (which one typically isn't in Vista).
As it turns out, the problem is related to the way VFP sets some of the properties on a window, which cause the window to be created and then change the border style afterwards. The solution to this problem is to change the order in which windows are created and configured.
Calvin Hsia explains how this is done in one of his recent blog posts.
