Trouble with using different wallpapers: Part 2

First of all...cool app.

I seem to be in "backwards world". The images I choose show up on the opposite side, and because of the difference in monitor size/resolution, it looks fubar.

I attached a screenshot...with DisplayFusion and Display Properties.

Stuff: WinXP, SP2, NVIDIA Card

Any hints?

Thanks!

Hi Stratboy,
I split this topic into it's own topic, so it is easier to keep the issues separate. Can you send me the 2 source images that you are using. You can send them to my email at jtackabury@binaryfortress.com if you don't want to post them in the forum.

Thanks,
Jon

Hi Stratboy,
One more question... what version of DisplayFusion are you using? I believe your issue was corrected with v1.2.1 which you can find here:

Please let me know if this does correct the issue.

Thanks!

I have a similar error. I am trying to stretch one image across two monitors. DisplayFusion is swapping the monitors which screws things up. Based on my debugging the CustomBackground.bmp file looks the same whether I put my #2 (smaller) monitor on the right or left of my main monitor. In any case it is not arranging the wallpaper correctly.

#1: 1600x1200 (onboard video)
#2: 1280x1024 (PCI video card)

I looked for version 1.2.1 but couldn't find it anywhere. This could be some weird computer configuration but I wanted to see if anyone else was having the same issue.

Thank you for the screenshot - those always make troubleshooting problems like this much easier. From your screenshot everything looks like it is configured correctly. The "CustomWallpaper" file looks ok based on your display configuration, but it is getting applied in a very unusually way. Usually, Windows will start applying the wallpaper at the top-left corner of the 1st display. In your case it is starting from the top-left corner of your 2nd display. Do you have any software installed that would possibly affect the skinning or presentation of the wallpaper? Any uxtheme hacks, or other skinning software? If you can let me know about any software you can think of it would be a huge help.

Thanks,
Jon

The new version of DisplayFusion (v1.4.2) should correct this issue. It is available for download here:

I also am having the same problem, My primary monitor is on the bottom and the secondary is on top shelf, I have downloaded the updated version 1.4.2

here is a screen capture



my primary monitor is 1440x900 res and secondary is standard 1024x768
I believe .net is up to date

I like the idea of this program, can it be fixed without uninstalling?

Sorry to re-open such an old topic, but it's possible that this can be caused by a number of issues. The latest version of DisplayFusion (v2.1.1) fixes a number of things related to Active Desktop and monitor layout. I would suggest giving it a try and let me know if you are still having this issue.
