Changing color of virtual desktop background?

I have a graphics issue with my graphics card that requires a white border around programs I run.

I have everything working correctly except my Crossover install. I can run programs in the virtual desktop mode and all the programs I want run correctly. However, I end up with a black "desktop", which means a black border around programs I run in Crossover.

Would some kind soul explain how to change the color of the virtual desktop background so that it's white (instead of black)?

Open Crossover -> Tools -> Manage Bottles. Select the bottle where the application is installed, go to the Control Panel tab, select Wine Configuration, click on Launch Item. In the window that opens click on the Desktop Integration tab, under the Item (middle of the window, -ish) scrolling list select "Desktop" and pick a color.

Should look like this:
