Re: Fixed Size Setup App = Stupid
And if you look back over the history of repeated posts on exactly this
request / suggestion, it is far from a matter of res-hacking or simply
enabling resizability or the maximize box. Overall size changes must be
propagated to all the individual UI elements, including the control
placements and the column widths in the table display.
Perhaps you're spoiled by Java's layout managers that handle this for
many common cases. As I understand it, the Win32 GUI API and toolkits
don't have a counterpart and GUI writers have to handle all the size /
layout change propagation and it can get pretty tedious.

How long will it take you? A couple of hours? A day? We all look
forward to it.
As someone else posted previously (thanks!): grab a copy of ResHack
and do it in 15 minutes.
