Error when changing monitor profiles

Hello guys! I'm having a problem with DisplayFusion regarding Monitor Profiles.
I have two screens mirrored, but since one of them has a higher framerate I have the absolute need to change profiles on the go (the 60hz caps the fps of the 165hz when they're mirrored).

Thing is, I can't seem to ACTIVATE monitors via profile changing.
Whenever I'm going from the mirrored monitor profile to the single monitor it works fine. But when I change from the single monitor to the mirrored it always crashes.

Also, for some reason, when I run DisplayFusion as admin I have no such problem... Thing is, Windows won't auto-boot programs in admin mode. And having to run it manually every time I boot would be more of a hassle than to simply not use DF and just do this via windows cfg.

Manually doing the process (reactivating the display and mirroring it with the main one) works fine.

Debug log and screenshot are attached.

Thank you!

That's really strange, does it work if you manually clone the monitors through the DisplayFusion Monitor Configuration window, without it running as administrator, rather than trying to switch through a monitor profile?

Thanks!

Oh, thank you Owen for your response!
Yeah, it does work when I manually activate and clone it.

Problem seems to be restricted to profile switching whenever it involves activating an inactive monitor. Switching to a profile that deactivates the monitor works fine, and manually doing whatever also works fine.

Also no luck with a fresh windows install/format.

Has this only started happening since updating to v9.9?

Thanks!

Unfortunately no. It's happening for quite a while already!

Okay interesting, let me check in with our devs on this one to see what permissions are needed to make those monitor config changes.

Thanks!
