How are you creating your window.
I did a createwindow as follows
CreateWindowEx (WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW,
"AppBarClass", "AppBar",
WS_POPUP | WS_THICKFRAME | WS_CLIPCHILDREN,
0, 0, 200, 40,
NULL, NULL, hInstance, NULL);
but it returns me an error saying Cannot find window class
is AppBarClass not a preregistered windows class.
