the checkmarks need to use a system color instead.

Summary: dialog checkmarks are always black (invisible with blackground) → dialog checkmarks are always black (invisible with background)
The checkmarks are actually images... so making them use a system color is probably somewhat difficult. Does the theme you are using not define a color for the background?
If the checkmark is an image then it shouldn't have a transparent background; that will solve the problem. The alternative is to implement it the Microsoft way using fonts, which solves the color control problem. Either solution seems acceptable.

Can't fix this with the resources we have today. the checkbox is a black image - we don't have the ability to install special fonts, and we don't have SVG, so we're stuck with the black image for now.

i will mention explicitly here that this only occurs with the classic theme; the modern theme uses bitmaps for all states and thus eliminates the problem. if its too hard to change the theme to use the font instead of the bitmap to indicate state, then perhaps you could change the display of the box/circle to use a white background instead of the system window color. how is that part generated?
