Multiple users remote control

Hi
I'm using DisplayFusion on one computer with 2 profiles.
I copied settings from user 1 to user 2.
But it seems the remote control (android) targets the first booted profile. Android is linked to profile 1, but if I boot on profile 2, the app will request a new code.
Can the remote setup be shared between accounts ? If not what would be the workaround ?
Thanks

I believe that the backup/restore settings doesn't include the security code for the Remote feature.

However, if you copy the value from "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Binary Fortress Software\DisplayFusion\RemoteControlSecurityCode" in the registry of one of the users, and import that for the other user (make sure to exit DF before updating the value), that should do the trick.

Hi Keith,

Thank you for your answer.
Though, each time I copy the value on the other user, it seems once I launch DP it gets overwritten.
Could you give it a try and tell me how it works for you ?
I have just copy/pasted the value, didn't import / export a .reg.

Ok, it may be that we forcefully re-generate it for different users. I will check in on that and let you know what I find out.

Thank you ! It really is a must for me as I bought DF solely in the purpose of remotely switching between monitor setups (2x2 monitors in different rooms).

Ok, I have some more info here. The code is encrypted using Windows' built-in encryption which uses different keys per-user, so it's not currently possible to make both users use the same code.

However, we're looking into adding an Advanced Setting to override it. The code would be stored in the registry unencrypted, but if you're ok with that, it will do what you're looking for
