    Upgraded project - Progress Bar

    I found an old project and I upgraded it from visual C++ 6 to visual studio 2015. It complies and works fine, but I noticed it still has the old blue progress bar. In the dialog edit window it shows the green pulsing bar but when I build and run it, it is back to the old blue bar.

    How can I update the bar so it is the green pulsing bar that you see in windows 7 / 10?

    Thank you,

    Your app misses a manifest that enables common control styles. Create a new sample project and look up for the manifest.

    Thank you for the reply. I found some manifest info in StdAfx.h. I copied that over and still the same. Am I looking in the wrong spot? Can you elaborate some on your response?

    Thank you,
