Hi,

Note: You will need a High DPI monitor to see this issue!

1. Open the Actipro Sample Project.

2. On the Project right click Add->New Item.

3. Search for Manifest and select 'Application Manifest File (Windows Only)'.

4. Open the newly created app.manifest.

5. Uncomment the section:

  <application xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v3">
    <windowsSettings>
      <dpiAware xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/SMI/2005/WindowsSettings">true</dpiAware>
    </windowsSettings>
  </application>

6. Clean and Build the Application.

7. Run the Application and select the sample 'Docking & MDI Features.

8. The icons are not scaled.

This is OK for the toolbar as I can scale these myself, but I don't have access to the built in Icons such as the Docking Window Pin Icon and the Tab Drop Down and Close Icons.

Thanks
