    And I don't find FREE libs/.NET Assemblies to skin my application. I WON'T BUY EXPENSIVE EXTENSIONS TO SKIN MY APPS!!!!!!

    Uhm... what?

    What is your question? What exactly do you mean by "skin"? (I know what it means, what I'm asking is: what requirements do you need to meet?) Do you want to write the code yourself, or you're just looking for a pre-made free solution?

    I see that every once in a while but only have a vague idea of what might cause it. Maybe it's worth a post in the Feedback section... ... maybe not.

    EDIT: Oh, I just saw that TheGreatCthulhu already did post about that in Feedback: http://www.codeguru.com/forum/showthread.php?t=510072. Thanks.

    I was thrown out of college for cheating on the metaphysics exam; I looked into the soul of the boy sitting next to me.

    This is a snakeskin jacket! And for me it's a symbol of my individuality, and my belief... in personal freedom.

    i'm searching for a pre-made solution to skin my .NET apps made in C++/CLI

    i can't find 100% NO DEMO DLLs that can skin my apps

    SkinCrafter is awesome, but it coast 400$
    i tried it, and my form apps looks awesome with Skins.

    and now I searching for a free DLL for .NET, that is SkinCrafter-like, or not
    I only want apply a skin file to my apps! not more...

    any way, because i cannot find working cracks for all the Skinning stuff in find!

    Sry...

    Are you trying to skin windows forms?

    I've been able to find some open source solutions - but I never used any of them so I can't warrant their quality.

    The simplest one is not really for skinning, but I should take a look:
    CodePlex: Drawing Custom Borders in Windows Forms

    This one seems to be more alike to what you're looking for:
    SharpSkin Library

    Also, I found this - it's not free (nor open source), but it costs less than SkinCrafter, and it looks pretty decent (USD$129):
    SkinFeature
