Projects OpenPictureDialog Does Not Have Preview Pane

I have a project that was recently converted from old Borland C++ builder to C++ Builder XE2. This project has an OpenPictureDialog. When the project is run and the OpenPictureDialog executed, there is no preview pane nor a preview pane button on the dialog, in later versions of windows (Vista or later, you actually get the preview pane if running the project in XP).

I can create a brand new project with the OpenPictureDialog and I get the preview pane in all versions of Windows. It seems to be an issue specifically with this converted project. I have searched high and low but have not been able to come up with any answers.

Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
Sean

Could be related to: http://docwiki.embarcadero.com/Libraries/XE2/en/Vcl.Dialogs.UseLatestCommonDialogs

That said, I would create a new project in XE2 and add the source code from the old project to it. It is always a good idea to recreate the project file

Thank you for the assistance. UseLatestCommonDialogs is set to true. When converting our system we did create new project files and added the code and components to the new project, albeit the adding of the code and components was not done manually but by a piece of software we wrote. There has been a bug or two with this process that we've had to correct. I'm just having a hard time finding what was missed or set improperly during the conversion.

I'm open to any suggestions.

Thanks again,
Sean
