Re: Fixed Size Setup App = Stupid

And if you look back over the history of repeated posts on exactly this

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.
I took the advice of whoever it was and used ResHack. It took me about
an hour (I had to figure out what upx was first). The results are
not perfect, no, but now I have a nice large selection dialog until such
time as the official version is ready.
