The Label is too big or on an other position, then on .net Framework.
It overlaps partly the TextBox in the following program.

Here a screenshot:


The program for PowerShell ( taken from )

Add-Type -AssemblyName System.Windows.Forms
Add-Type -AssemblyName System.Drawing
$window = New-Object System.Windows.Forms.Form
$window.Width = 1000
$window.Height = 800
$Label = New-Object System.Windows.Forms.Label
$Label.Location = New-Object System.Drawing.Size(10,10)
$Label.Text = "Text im Fenster"
$Label.AutoSize = $True
$windowTextBox = New-Object System.Windows.Forms.TextBox
$windowTextBox.Location = New-Object System.Drawing.Size(10,30)
$windowTextBox.Size = New-Object System.Drawing.Size(500,500)
  $windowButton = New-Object System.Windows.Forms.Button
  $windowButton.Location = New-Object System.Drawing.Size(10,60)
  $windowButton.Size = New-Object System.Drawing.Size(50,50)
  $windowButton.Text = "OK"


and in C#

using System.Windows.Forms;
using System.Drawing;

public class tst {
  public static void Main() {
    var window = new Form();
    window.Width = 1000;
    window.Height = 800;
    var Label = new Label();
    Label.Location = new Point(10,10);
    Label.Text = "Text im Fenster";
    Label.AutoSize = true;
    var windowTextBox = new TextBox();
    windowTextBox.Location = new Point(10,30);
    windowTextBox.Size = new Size(500,500);
    var windowButton = new Button();
    windowButton.Location = new Point(10,60);
    windowButton.Size = new Size(50,50);
    windowButton.Text = "OK";
    Application.EnableVisualStyles();   // optional

I have tested the program on .net Framework v4.0.30319 on Win8.1 with and without Visual Styles as program and as PowerShell Skript on Windows PowerShell 4.0 on one side. And on .net Core 3.1 with and without Visual Styles and on PowerShell 7.0.0-rc-1 on the other side.

The position should not differ since you are using absolute coordinates but you have the label on autosize so its size may differ. The default font is different in .NET Core and Desktop so you must make sure you are giving enough space for the larger font of both systems when you work with absolute coordinates. See for the font change.
