2 installs on the same machine?

I "work from home".

On my formerly gaming-only computer, I have a work profile where I install nothing fun... no steam, no reddit logged in, none of that.

I know about that DisplayFusion needs to be installed in Program Files, and that's fine. But that's not the question.

The question is: will DisplayFusion allow 2 instances to be run on the same machine if they're based on 2 separate profile credentials?

And if so, how would I go about setting that up?

You only need to install it once, and then you can do the following on each user account:

  • On the DisplayFusion Settings > Options tab, enable the "Start with Windows" option
  • On the DisplayFusion Settings > License Key tab, paste in your license key and apply the settings

Hope that helps!

Hello! Necro-ing this real quick to ask: does this keep the settings synchronized between accounts? Thanks!

@SgtSweetieBelle: The settings are stored per-user. There is a way to export your settings and have them imported on login using Windows Scheduled Tasks: https://www.displayfusion.com/HelpGuide/DeployingCustomizedSettingsToAllUsersOnASingleMachine/

Nice! Will work on this. Will this ensure that all settings get synchronized regardless of which user makes changes? So that, say, if I make any changes on User B, it'll get sync'd with User A, and vice-versa?

It won't, no. You'd have to re-export the settings to replace the settings you originally exported.

Oh, this doesn't stay automatically updated, and any time I make changes on any account I have to manually export?

That's correct, yep!
