No, go to the Packages tab and uncheck "Build with runtime packages".

It will be worth building the app afresh without the "runtime packages"
option. This at least will eliminate the possibility that the Windows
common controls runtimes are causing the visual breakages. You get bigger
executables but they are less vulnerable to the eddies and currents of
Microsoft library changes. (IMO, the runtime packages option has been a
crock since day one.)
