DisplayFusion TaskBar and Multiplicity Compatibility

Mark Gunnett
33 discussion posts
Hello,

I figured I'd split this off into a new thread as I don't know if it is related to the other issues I've experienced since updating to windows 10 2004.

I use a digital KVM by the name of Multiplicity. I've noticed that that when I am interacting with a different computer, the DisplayFusion taskbar constantly seems to be refreshing. I tried setting the compatibility mode to remove the application hooks from the multiplicity processes, but it still happens. It almost feels like the taskbar is crashing while my mouse and keyboard are redirected to the other monitor.

This didn't happen before the update to 2004, which is why I'm not sure if it's an issue with Multiplicity, DisplayFusion, or both due to the update.

Hi Mark,

Could you send me over a debug log? Here are the steps:

  • On the DisplayFusion Settings > Troubleshooting tab, change the Logging drop-down to "L1: Log Minimal" and click Apply
  • Reproduce the issue and note the time so we'll know where to check in the log file
  • Click the "Export Info to File" button on the Settings > Troubleshooting tab
  • Reply with the file attached
  • Disable debug logging after sending the log

Thanks!

Hi Mark,

Thanks for sending that over. Is the taskbar flickering, or is it completely disappearing and reappearing?

Thanks!

It's like it's flickering, but it's hard to explain. I've attached a video showing what it does.

We've just released a new beta version of DisplayFusion (https://www.displayfusion.com/Download/Beta) and this issue should be all fixed up. Please let us know if you run into any trouble after updating.

Thanks!

Hi,

It would seem the issue is still persisting after the update. If it helps, I don't have any of the mouse options selected except for the scroll on unfocused windows.

I tried disabling that option and the issue still occurs.

I also use Multiplicity, but have not use my DisplayFusion with it. Will I also have this problem or is this problem a rarity with using Multiplicity?

The flickering in this instance seems to be limited to compatibility issue with Multiplicity, but I could be wrong. I use it all day long since I have my work computer and gaming rig connected with the KVM. Since I work from home I'm always seeing the flickering out of the corner of my eye.

Hi Mark,

Thanks for letting us know. We're going to re-open the issue and look into it a bit further. We'll be in contact, either to gather more information, or to let you know when we have it fixed up.

Thanks for your patience!
