Hi. Great little tool ,that I basically use for changing the background for 2 monitors. However, Vista seems to want to override the setting every time I restart. I don't have the program running at start up, so the monitoring the change of paper isn't running. Am I doing something wrong, or is there a Vista setting I need to change?

Cheers.

This is a very strange problem indeed. Have you set your wallpaper using your video card software, like nView or the Catalyst Control Center? What happens if you set DisplayFusion to run at startup with wallpaper monitoring turned on, does it correct the problem?

Thanks,
Jon

If I run it at startup, I get a notification that it has been changed and told to click here to change back. nView doesn't work on Vista, so I haven't set anything with my card, just the personalise option in Vista.

Cheers.

Hi Steve,
Thanks for the feedback. This issue has been fixed in the recently released v1.4 of DisplayFusion. You can find the new version here:

If you are still experiencing the same problem, just enable the setting "Warn me if another program changes my wallpaper" and also enable "Fix my wallpaper without prompting". This should take care of any software that is resetting your wallpaper.

Thanks!
Jon

Even after the new version, I was still having issues with Vista reverting the background but I discovered that I still had a default background set in Vista's display properties. I changed it to a solid color and the reverting stopped. Not sure if that was mentioned in the DisplayFusion documentation or not (I typically over look things like that ) but I thought I'd mention it here anyways in case anybody was having a similar problem.

The new version of DisplayFusion (v1.4.2) should correct this issue. It is available for download here:
