v3.1.8 compatibility with UltraVNC and dual monitors w/VISTA

When I access my dual monitor workstation via UltraVNC from another computer (single monitor)) everything looks fine while I'm accessing it. The toolbar button on UltraVNC lets me easily select which of the two monitors I wish to view and all seems fine. I have UltraVNC set to not display the wallpaper in order to get the best remote access performance. All this works fine until...

I get to work the next day the wallpaper on both monitors is screwed up. DisplayFusion takes the two different wallpaper images and scrunches them together horizontally and shows this combined image on both monitors.

To fix this I have to do is open DisplayFusion and click OK and it restores the monitors to their individual wallpaper images.

While I realize this is obviously triggered by accessing vis UltraVNC I wanted to start here and see if this is something DisplayFusion can easily correct.

I the DisplayFusion Settings window, on the Wallpaper tab, just check-off the setting called "Fix my wallpaper without prompting". You will need the Pro version to do this, but DisplayFusion can definitely do it for you.

I purchased the Pro version and still no joy with the automatic display fixing. I have checked the wallpaper settings box labeled as "Fix my wallpaper without prompting" but it apparently doesn't see anything wrong with the double image wallpaper that UltraVNC creates and thus doesn't even try to fix it.

It isn't a big deal as I can correct the wallpaper with a few clicks of the mouse. I was just hoping for a cleaner resolution.

There is something about dual monitors that can confuse the way UltraVNC and DisplayFusion play together.

Thanks for the suggestion anyway. Any other thoughts? I can probably create an AutoIt task to send the necessary mouse clicks and set it to correct the screen at 6:00 am each day so it won't be an issue when I arrive at work! lol

NOTE: This blending of the two monitor wallpapers only occurs when I set UltraVNC to NOT send the wallpaper to the client. I do this because the VPN bandwidth is limited.

That is odd, AFAIK the fix my wallpaper option does just that. Does changing to the next random wallpaper fix it? That may lend a clue as how to approach this.

@Hawk521: Can you post a screenshot of the issue, I'm having a hard time picturing and reproducing the issue.

In an effort to cleanup the DisplayFusion forum, this topic is being locked and archived because it applies to an older version of DisplayFusion. If you are using the latest version of DisplayFusion and would still like some assistance, please create a new topic and I'll be happy to help you out. There are also beta versions available for testing the latest features and bug fixes:
