[6.1] Dual Monitors...Setting where Vantage resides

Late follow-up to this thread:

I flipped open the April issue of TechNet Magazine, and one of the first
articles I came across was a review of an application called,
"UltraMon," that sounds like it will do what Todd is looking for. I
haven't tried this myself - haven't even visited the website yet, but
when I read the article, I immediately thought of this thread.

Here's a link:
http://www.realtimesoft.com/ultramon/

Good luck.

Subject: [Vantage] [6.1] Dual Monitors...Setting where Vantage resides



We have a dual monitor setup at our reception & phone operator desk. I
can set all applications except Vantage to "live" on one screen or the
other. The phone system uses the right hand touch screen LCD so that
applicaiton always pops up there when started. Outlook and Office apps
start on the left monitor. Generally wherever you close an app is where
it comes back to when re-started. But nothing I have tried seems to be
able to make Vantage start on the left screen. Even if we drag it over
there and maximize it all the subsequent screens pop up over on the
right monitor. When I go into the display settings it shows the #2
(right hand) monitor as the touch screen so I know the 0,0 point for the
whole screen field should be at the top left of the left monitor.

Anyone else using Vantage (6.1) on a dual monitor setup? Is there a
setting in the .ini of .mfg files that controls a starting location?

Thanks,
Todd Caughey

Regarding the dual monitor situation where Vantage won't stay put on a specific screen....

Well....I have a workaround but it is pretty weak. If I remote in to one of the servers that has Vantage installed I can force the RDP desktop to reside on the left monitor and Vantage will stay contained within it. Anyone know if it is possible to remote in to the same PC you are remoting from? Sort of a virtual desktop to itself?
Thanks,
-Todd C.

Todd -

You definitely *cannot* remote desktop to/remote control the same
machine you're on. The paradox that creates would be akin to
time-traveling to a few minutes ago and running into yourself ;)

Don't know, never tried it. Will be an interesting experiment. I do know that the official XP release only allows one session active at a time, so unless you hack the registry back to the XP Beta release when MS allowed two sessions at a time, I would have to say no you can not RDP into localhost.

Todd,

I use Ultra VNC and in the Admin Properties there is a setting that you can
"Allow Loopback Connections". Never used it so I turned it on to test it.

Well, it did connect but it was opening up multiple windows and completely
useless. Not saying I did everything needed to make it work properly.

And I am running a Dual Monitor setup.

OK, Ari and Michael...I guess that answers that. Until I have an answer on Vantage itself I will have them remote into a login on on of the lesser servers. There may be a setting in the video card driver that will control specific application locations.
Thanks,

I just tried an experiment on my multi-monitor setup where I created a shortcut on the second monitor for Vantage using the long hand startup string. Vantage started up there but the login box popped up on the primary monitor. :( I then added my username and password to the progress startup -param and Vantage opened up directly on the second monitor with my login. I then copied that shortcut to my startup folder and when I logged in, Vantage started on the second monitor. So it looks like this can be done using the progress command line (prowin32.exe) with parameters to start Vantage instead of firing it from the mfg.exe and the .mfg file.
