  2. Well, I think the way these "seamless" apps (is there a better way to
    describe them?) are behaving is a pretty good one. Whoda thunk to make
    sure the primary was on the right???
    Huh. Well that just sounds darned cool! What constitutes a "RAIL
    server" -- any old RDP host?

  3. Yeah, it's interesting that MSFT seemed to view it as a bug, too.
    Worse still, I have this haunting feeling that I've "fixed" something
    else with that, some time ago, but somehow my monitors got flopped
    about at another point down the road. <groan>

  4. Sorry, yeah, I'm sure that'd be fine as well. I just have a thing for
    "free" when it does the job. :)
    I know I'm in a shrinking minority on that one, too.
    Heheheh... Okay, there ya go. :)

    Well, I think the way these "seamless" apps (is there a better way to
    For my purposes it works really well!.
    I never would have, though something's tickling my brain about that,
    something to do with directdraw maybe?
    I don't know if it's any of them, but something like MED-V also uses it, and
    probably other things. I wonder if the Citrix app sharing is similar...

  6. Looking at my system coords now that I've moved the primary to the
    right, I see:

    0: "Virtual", (-1600,0)-(1600,1200), Desktop: False, VGA: False,
    Visible: True

    1: "\\.\DISPLAY1", (0,0)-(1600,1200), Workarea: (0,0)-(1600,1160),
    Desktop: True, VGA: False, Visible: True, Primary

    2: "\\.\DISPLAY2", (-1600,0)-(0,1200), Desktop: True, VGA: False,
    Visible: True

    I'm thinking it may have to do with positive coordinate space? The
    monitor on the left now ranges from -1600 to 0 on the X axis! So is
    the driver just too stupid to consider that visible space?
    Heh, well, I have no idea about MED-V either. But if I could run a
    remote app as though it were local, from any machine I connect to via
    RDP, I'd be a very happy camper.

    I'm thinking it may have to do with positive coordinate space? The
    I don't know, it's beyond my knowledge. Seems awfully odd though.
    I think there's some kind of toolkit for RAIL, I'll see if I can find where
    I saw it.
