The "old" dll that MS ships with WindowsXP is comctl32.dll version 5.x which 
is the same as on other Windows versions.

Version 6 is the new version. One of the biggest changes is that this updated 
dll handles both the user and common controls. Further all controls now 
include some area in which can be drawn for theming.
