V3.2.0.106 Beta 6: Windows LocationCentre Option erratic

The new Centre option does not center certain programs on the selected monitor. The attached pic shows SpywareBlaster which is suppose to center on Monitor 2 but does not. If the Windows Location is not implemented on this program, it opens in the center of Monitor 1 and if I use the Title Bar option "Move to next monitor and center", it moves to the center of Monitor 2.

This is on Window 7 x64 Professional with dual monitors.

Is SpywareBlaster running as an Administrator? If so, you'll either need to run DisplayFusion as an Administrator to detect the new windows opening, or else DisplayFusion doesn't won't receive new window notifications, sorry. :(

I checkmarked Compatibility"Run this program as an Administrator" on DisplayFusion.exe and DisplayFusionHookx86.exe and rebooted. It did solve the issue with Spywareblaster not centering correctly.

Perhaps these should be set with Run as Administrator active via the program installer, eh?

This problem is back again. I double confirmed that the "Run as Administrator" option is enabled on DisplayFusion.exe and DisplayFusionHookx86.exe.

I think I may have found the issue. When you disable UAC in Vista or Windows 7 weird things happen. Sometimes elevation doesn't happen correctly, because the elevation used to rely on UAC to handle it. I would bet that if you enabled UAC it would work as expected, but this is just a guess on my part. Is your account an Administrator account running without UAC, or a regular user who has to type in different credentials to elevate programs?

I only have an Admin account on my system. Yes, I have UAC disabled.

I turned on UAC for a test. On a system reboot, DF will not even start up with "Run as Administrator" check marked on DisplayFusion.exe, DisplayFusionHelpter.exe and DisplayFusionHookx86.exe...with UAC active. I unchecked the "Run as Administrator" on these 3 files and rebooted with UAC on. Yes, SWB now opens centered on Monitor 2. BUT, I certainly do not wish to run with UAC activated. :|

On my Windows 7 x86 Pro system with only an Admin account and UAC turned off, DF works as designed and SWB opens centered on Monitor 2. "Run as Administrator" is check marked on DisplayFusion.exe, DisplayFusionHelpter.exe and DisplayFusionHookx86.exe to make SWB open centered on Monitor 2.

Beta 8 appears to have improved this issue. SpywareBlaster now opens centered on my second monitor...as requested.

However, it does not resolve the issue as explained in the link below.

Unfortunately there doesn't appear to be a way for me to work around this issue. :( I am relying on the window notification alerts from Windows, and it appears they don't get sent for some elevated windows, sorry.
