V3.2.0.105 Beta 5: New Windows Location Feature Issues

The new Windows Location feature is a very nice addition.

I am some programs set up to open on monitor 2. When I open them, the GUI flashes open on monitor 1 and then quickly moves to monitor 2. It would be nice if the rapid flash open on monitor 1 did not occur. :wink:

It would also be great if there was a "Center on Monitor" option for those programs where the developer has not learned how to make a GUI window open up at the center of a monitor.

The Windows Location feature does not work at all on
TrojanHunter
jv16 PowerTools 2010

They will open only on monitor 1.

If you want to test this, you can download them from:

hxxp://www.misec.net/products/TrojanHunterSetup.exe
hxxp://www.macecraft.com/downloads/betas/jv16PT2010_985.exe

(I neutralized the above links with hxxp)

Thanks for following-up so quickly! Let me see if I can cover your points:

1. I tested a few different ways to accomplish this, and the one that provided the best all-around compatibility was allowing the window to be opened as normal, then using the existing underlying window management code to process the window. This mean there will be a brief flash of the window, but this is a compromise I have decided is best for now. :)

2. "Centre on Monitor" is an excellent idea, look for it in Beta 6.

3. I'll test these apps and see what I can find out.

I can certainly live with the brief flash. :wink:

And thanks for your feedback on 2 and 3.

I have looked into these 2 programs, and the reason they don't move automatically is because they are being run elevated as an Administrator, not as your user. As a result, Windows never notifies DisplayFusion about the new windows. Unfortunately there isn't a way for me to work around this. One option for you is to run DisplayFusion elevated as well, but this may not be ideal. :(

I tried running DisplayFusion with Compatibility"Run this program as an Administrator" checked on DisplayFusion.exe, DisplayFusionHookx86.exe, and DisplayFusionHelper.exe (and yes I rebooted after this change). It did not resolve the problem on TrojanHunter and jv16 PowerTools. They still will not open automatically on monitor 2.

This is occurring on Windows 7 x64 Professional and Windows 7 x86 Professional. Attached is the Troubleshooting info from the x64 system

I'm wondering if this issue with TrojanHunter and jv16PowerTools is being caused by Delphi 10 which was used by the developers for complilation ? ?

I think this may have something to do with UAC being disabled. Applications that run as Administrator won't be able to be controlled by the Window Location feature unfortunately.
