Oh well, I missed the Foxtools.Fll, after copy that one also in the same directory where GDI+X Pad is running it works ok.
So System.APP and Foxtools.FLL and GDI+XPad.exe are now all in the same directory and it works as expected.
I was exploring how you used the GDI+ to make buttons and other controls with a more modern look believing I could learn something from your techniques.
Will have an extensive look at it and in case any questions will start a new topic. OK?

Thanks for prompt reply.
