Unhandled exception for windows with "Disable visual themes"

description

I'm running Schwab Streetsmart, which has "Disable visual themes" enabled under Compatibility. Clicking on the window in Switcher mode causes an unhandled exception with "Error moving window". I believe it is directly tied to "Disable visual themes" because all my other windows are okay.

I'll have to wait to test this with Vista. I've been using XP to develop and test XP compatibility.

Although I haven't yet been able to look into the exact problem, I've added error handling to stop it from crashing.

This must be because its running in administrative mode, not because of visual themes being disabled. I've added logic to check for this, like I said, but in order to move the window around, you will need to either run your program in normal mode, or run VVDM with admin privileges.
