    Hi there,

    THX for the new version of MPDisplay++.

    I have a problem with the placement of the MPDisplay++ window.
    Though my 3 monitors are recognized correctly in size and offset by MPDisplay++Config, it does not place the window correctly as you can see in the attached screenshots.
    It should be placed on the middle window (No.3 on the JPG "MultiMonitorSetup"; 800x600) but apparently it is offset downwards and sized too big.
    So it partly ovrelaps into the lower monitor.

    Does it again have something to do with my DPI-scaling to 125% as was the case with a former version of MPDisplay++?

    Kind regards
    Roger

    Hi, you give yourself allready the answer.. It is because of the higher dpi setting..

    If you set the dpi to100, everything should be fine..

    You can 'fix' it by setting a custom resolution, and a custom posy and posx

    DPI has to be set to 100, as powermarcel already wrote and x/y Pos. is "0" when set to the Middle Monitor.

    THX for the quick reply.

    In my setup I have to use 125% DPI setting (too lengthy to explain why).
    So I will try to find a suitable resolution/offset-setting that works.

    Perhaps an automatic calculation of the right size/offset could be implemented in a future version.
    I believe to remember that saddam send me a fixed dll for this problem in a former version of MPD.

    Kind regards

    Roger

    if you use android, nothing can work with mpdisplay yet ...
    i have search about an windows mini itx ( or pico itx ) hardware + Touichscreen + small SSD. but the size of final package is not slim ...
    an other thing is to use Windows Compact embedded 7 or 8 ( working with .net 4 ), but not possible to find it in store . and i think working only with ARM software compatible.

    Hi
    I just tried the 095 installing it in german using Titan Basic as Skin. Regrettably, with no success. I de-installed the previously used Version and made sure that there are no remnants on HD or in Registry. MP++ starts up and loads all png but then i end up with a Crash of mpdisplay.gui and the logfile tells me the following:

    this is a bug in the new version :(, The SystemInfo module fails to start on some machines

    You will need to disable "SystemInfo" in the MPDisplay config.
