Could you make GPU-Z use the OS/system font?

Also could someone make a *true* Vista icon? The current icon seems very vectory so a resize shouldn't be too hard.

Another thing is to remove "TechPowerUp" and the version from the caption and put it in an About tab.

Also the progressbar in Validation should be a system one ;)

But if it's messed up the ver number would be a good thing to see in a screen shot.

Also it's techPowerUp! soft I think it's ok to show it where it is at.

the visual studio resource compiler doesnt like the big vista icons and i've been too lazy to integrate an external tool. i'll add it in a future version

the version number has to be there to show on screenshots, the label techpowerup is to help distinguish it from cpu-z. i dont want franck to receive lots of support questions that should be directed to me.

are you saying that the progressbars don't have vista style ?

The one in validation hasn't.

Here is the way I use to get the system font (Using Windows 98 fonts isn't really modern anymore ;) ):
var NonClientMetrics: TNonClientMetrics;

  ZeroMemory(@NonClientMetrics, SizeOf(TNonClientMetrics));
  NonClientMetrics.cbSize := SizeOf(TNonClientMetrics);
  SystemParametersInfo(SPI_GETNONCLIENTMETRICS, 0, @NonClientMetrics, 0);

  SystemFont := NonClientMetrics.lfMessageFont; //SystemFont is of type TLogFont
