I need a method of indicating that certain fields are required within my forms on a Windows Desktop UI.
I have read and searched the Windows Design Guidelines, but can not find a standard that Windows suggests to use. Is there a standard method in Windows of indicating this?

I know that a common method is to use an asterix beside required fields, is this the standard on Windows too?
N.b. I am not referring to validation messages or feedback after a user has interacted with a form, I am referring to the display of the form on initial load.
