Default Transparency Key issues...

I am trying to make custom shaped forms. I kept the form background colour as "Fuchsia" and added a transparent PNG image of some shape to it. I set the transparency key to fuchsia and it works fine with me on Vista. The form is of the shape of that image only on Vista systems.On Xp machine, the colour "fuchsia" is shown instead of transparent region.Is this a bug already known? Or is it something else?

Do you have the XP box set up to handle alpha transparencies?

Works fine with me when the PNG file has fuscia elements in it. How are you creating the PNG?
