I have an application which creates a menu-driven interface with some buttons in a dialog box at the bottom of the window. The problem I'm having is that I can't make the buttons visible when the application starts up. They are there since they can be clicked and as soon as the application is moved or a menu posted they appear. Any suggestions on how I can make the buttons visible would be greatly appreciated. I've added a solution that replicates the problem in both 64 and 32 bit versions.
