Outdated font name for dialog boxes #2475
This states: To have your application use the system font no matter which system it is running on, use DS_SHELLFONT with the typeface MS Shell Dlg, and use the DIALOGEX Resource instead of the DIALOG Resource. The system maps this typeface such that your dialog box will use the Tahoma font. Note that DS_SHELLFONT has no effect if the typeface is not MS Shell Dlg.
Actually, the font name is MS Shell Dlg 2. MS Shell Dlg (without the 2) has been deprecated since Windows 2000, as stated in this article: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/intl/using-ms-shell-dlg-and-ms-shell-dlg-2
