Can't get SkinManager to work

I followed the direction in the documentation, but my form still doesn't show the Office2007Black theme
I have added the SM and set the properties.
Using just the regular form controls (btton, richtext, menstrip, checkbox)

Using VS Comm. 2019

What is missing?

Here is my VB code

Imports Syncfusion.Windows.Forms

Public Class Form1
    Private Sub Form1_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        ' Loading Office2016Theme assembly

        'SkinManager1.Controls = Me
        'SkinManager1.VisualTheme = VisualTheme.Office2016Black

        'SkinManager1.ApplicationVisualTheme = "Office2016Black"
        'Application.Run(New Form1())

        'Me.components = New System.ComponentModel.Container()
        'Dim skinManager1 As New SkinManager(Me.components)
        'skinManager1.Controls = treeViewAdv1

        'SkinManager.SetVisualStyle(Me, "Office2016Black")
        'Me.BackColor = ColorTranslator.FromHtml("#363636")
        'Me.CaptionBarColor = ColorTranslator.FromHtml("#363636");

        'SkinManager.SetVisualStyle(Me, VisualTheme.Office2007Black)

    End Sub

End Class
