Hyper-V Guest - Virtual Machine Connection - Full Screen Does Not Resize

When using vmconnect to connect to a hyper-v guest in Enhanced Session mode, I initially start the remote session in some 1920x1080 resolution restricted by vmconnect initially. After connecting, if I resize the window by pulling the bottom right handle, the client resizes just fine. However, if I click the maximize button, the client does not resize. I've attached the two scenarios in screenshots. It's hard to say if this is a display fusion issue. If I exit displayfusion a maximize of VMConnect goes to Full Screen mode and the client resizes properly.

EDIT: Forgot to mention that any scripted functions to a specific resolution of the window also exhibit the same failed behavior.

Any thoughts?

70/30 Virtual Split or No Split
DisplayFusion Pro 9.1
Windows 10 Pro 64-bit 1709 16299.248
VMConnect.exe 10.0.16299.15

Thanks,
Bryan

If you hold Shift when you click the maximize button on the VMConnect window, does it work correctly?

Hey Keith,

Yes. But that ignores the virtual splits and goes full screen. But, I guess that would be normal behavior for Shift + Maximize.

Thanks,
Bryan

Yeah, for sure, it was just a test to see what happened. I think the issue is with sending the SetWindowPos command to the window for setting the size/position, but I'll need to do some more testing with help from our devs here to find out. I will keep you posted as soon as I have more news.

Thanks!

I've had a chance to do some more testing with this, and it looks to be a bug with the VMConnect window. It doesn't detect the resize if it wasn't done with the mouse. I can reproduce the same issue if I use the Windows built-in Win + Left hotkey on the VMConnect window.

At the moment I can't think of any way to work around this, other than just manually resizing the window with the mouse.

Sorry!

Hey Keith,

Understood. Can I setup a custom function or scripted function to send the proper command after a maximize?

Thanks,
Bryan

I can't seem to find a way to get it to update via a script, no. As far as I can tell, the only way to get it to auto-resize is to actually drag it with the mouse, which can't be done once it's actually maximized to a split

That's great news! We made a change to how the windows are moved, so I'm glad to hear that fixed this issue as well!
