Hello, 
is is possible to tell the AvalonDock that it should always use the vista - theme ? (also when it's running under xp, etc.)

Of course. Simply perform the following steps (in your application):

1) Add a reference to PresentationFramework.Aero
2) Add this to the App.xaml (or some other resource dictionary that you use):

<ResourceDictionary.MergedDictionaries>
    <!-- Set Aero theme (for WPF) -->
    <ResourceDictionary Source="/PresentationFramework.Aero;V3.0.0.0;31bf3856ad364e35;component/themes/aero.normalcolor.xaml" />
   
  
 <!-- Generic AvalonDock colors -->
    <ResourceDictionary Source="/AvalonDock;component/themes/aero.normalcolor.xaml"/>
</ResourceDictionary.MergedDictionaries>
