Windows XP + MMC

Hello,

I was wondering why I can't use the drag or middle click feature to move an MMC console between monitors? Is this something that can be implemented in a future release? It's really the only thing I need DisplayFusion to do

Thanks.

Exactly what is an MMC console?

Also is it being run with admin privileges?

mmc.exe

If you open up the Control Panel Administrative Tools Services - for example, that opens in an MMC window. I use the MMC all day and have to Restore Down the window to move it to another monitor. I don't have issues moving/middle clicking any other window.

Hi

Running Windows 7 Home Premium X64, I have NO trouble with the middle click moving MMC windows between monitors.

I have tried a co-workers machine and the same thing happens.

I forgot to mention that we do run the MMC consoles with alternative credentials. Does that matter?

Thanks!

It most likely is the cause, as I asked if it was using admin for a reason. The different user creds is probably the issue, no noted fix at the time, sorry.

@Andrew: I'll test this out today and let you know what I find out. Thanks!

I have good news and bad news. First, the bad news. It appears that in Windows XP you can't hook an application that is being run as a different user. This means that the DisplayFusion hooks can't "see" the application and won't respond to mouse clicks. The good news is that this is fixed in Windows 7 and it works as expected in Windows 7. In the meantime, you can still use the TitleBar Buttons to move the windows around, even windows that are running as a different user. Just create a TitleBar Button for "Move Window to Next Monitor", and this is the same as middle-clicking the window. Sorry for the bad news, but at least there is a good workaround. Thanks!
