Cloning 2 monitors, extending the third Windows 7 issue

I received this message:

An error has occurred while applying your new Monitor configuration.
Please check your settings and try again.
Error: Failed to call SetDisplayConfig. [HR: 31]

When I attempted to set up a third monitor, meant to be a clone of my main monitor, while extending to a third. This is for a standing desk sort of arrangement, so I can utilize my e-mail and such from a different part of my office. Any idea how to fix this?

Are you able to clone it through the Windows display settings, or does it error out there as well?

It errors out there as well. I actually grabbed this software since I thought it might fix the issue.

Ah ok, sorry. DisplayFusion uses the Windows API in the backend so if it doesn't work there, it won't in DisplayFusion either

Gotcha. Well thanks for clearing that up for me, at least I know the limitation is the OS instead of just my being inept. I appreciate it!
