DisplayFusion makes WLM2009 act weird

Hey there,

I recently bought DisplayFusion Pro, and the software itself is real awesome!!
But I have found a minor issue with wlm2009

It seems that whenever I have a chat window open, and display fusion runs and changes wallpapers (atleast I think it happens when it changes wallpapers).
The window seems to scroll up a bit, and this got worse in 3.4.0 beta 3...
In DisplayFusion 3.3.1 it scrolled up like 10 to 20 pixels, in 3.4.0b3 however, when you have scrolled up, the scroll bar goes to halfway in the window. This does not always occur occur though, however, the scrolling up 10 to 20px does.

This happens on:
Windows 7 x64 Ulti
WLM 2009 (aPatched and msn+)

Does it occur without DisplayFusion running?
no, only happens when DisplayFusion changes the wallpaper, when windows 7 changes it, it works fine.

Thanks in advance!

I don't have a copy of WLM 2009 handy, but it seems to work fine for me in WLM 2011. Any chance you can update to WLM 2011 and try it out?

No sorry, I would've still been on 8.5 if MS hadn't turned the old offline messaging servers off.....
(I hate WLM2009, and WLM2011 I hate even more cause of facebook integration ___)

I can send you the offline installer for WLM2009 though? (Block it's connection and it installs 2009)

Sure can you send over the installer to Make sure to rename the extension from .exe to .txt or something like that so it doesn't get caught in our spam filter.

On a side note, you can disable the Facebook integration in WLM 2011. I have mine set to just show the standard WLM contact list, no social media integration at all.

Ok, it's sent

Uhm, just noticed it hadn't send it yet....
Seems the installer is only 135mb ___

Ok, don't worry about sending it. There's not likely much we can do about older applications anyhow. Can you try this as a workaround though?

On the Compatibility tab of the DisplayFusion settings, create a new Compatibility rule for WLM 2009, and disable the "Allow this program to load DisplayFusion hooks" option, then restart WLM 2009.

It seems that the compatibility setting has fixed it.
Though I know better then to jump to conclusions this fast, so I'll keep an eye on it and report back when am certain it's fixed!
