BUG:Missing graphics on Windows 7 Pro

Postby KennyM » Fri Nov 12, 2010 3:37 pm

v6.5.42.0 Beta
Running on Windows 7 Pro

On all of the edit fields, combo boxes and drop down boxes the disclosure triangles or up/down buttons are missing.

It's not so bad for the range/time division boxes, but it makes setting a trigger more difficult.

See screen snapshot at http://www.kel-electronics.co.uk/ps6.png : Image

Hope you find this useful.

Hi KennyM,

Can you exit the software and then try deleting the following folder:

C:\Users\*****\AppData\Local\Pico Technology\64358d19-ef91-48bb-9ae0-3b4689d44d99

where ***** is your user login.

Then restart the software.

Kind regards
Ziko

Hi Ziko,

Ok thanks, I have tried that, but it has made no difference.

Can you try changing your DPi to the standard size?

Kind regards

Hi Ziko,

My DPI is set to the default (125%) for this screen at it's native resolution. It's a Dell lattitude laptop E6510 at 1920x1080. Control panel shows 125% as the Default.

I lowered the DPI to 'Smaller' which is 100% and the discloure arrows appeared, however the smaller fonts are not nice to look at, and hard to read, on this screen.

For reference windows calls 125% Default and 100% as 'Smaller'

Out of the box Windows would use 125% as default on this screen.

I hope this helps! If I can be of any more assistance, please feel free to ask.

I should have said, I believe that my DPI was set at the 'standard size' and that I had to change it to a non-standard size to make it work ;-)

I suppose it depends on what you define as standard, it looks to me a little bigger than the default DPi settings. In any case I have logged this as a bug report.
