I found the problem, but not the solution... yet.

The Activation Context API was used to add XP theme support to dwt 
recently. This fix however appears to be incomplete.  It activates the 
XP theme but apparently the images are still deactivated.

For now, the images will only appear if you have a manifest file like 
controlexample.exe.manifest in the same directory as the executable. 
The Activation Context fix was supposed to fix this too, but apparently 
it is inadequate at the moment.  We will have to look into why this is so.

So, as a temporary solution, here is the controlexample.exe.manifest 
(attached) file from the old dwt project.  Put this is the same 
directory as your controlexample.exe, and the images should show up.
