It's my understanding that skinnable applications are easy targets for viruses and most network administrators will not allow them to be installed. With this in mind, I would assume that it is not a recommended practice for security reasons.

That should not deter your efforts, but may explain why you are going to get few replies.

CAB provides a Workspace for this called the WindowWorkspace. Unlike the DeckWorkspace, ZoneworkSpace and others, this Workspace does not need to be embedded on a Form or Panel. You can create a WindowWorkspace dynamically in code and embed SmartParts on it, then show it like a Dialog.

I think that's what you're asking for, no?
