DOPus Support suggested I raise this on the forum to see if anyone else has experienced the same issue. This is a problem with Windows XP SP3 on a three monitor system and DOpus v10.0.1.0. (It happened with DOPus 10 betas and DOpus 10.0.0.0 too). DOpus Support are unable to reproduce the issue.
When I open a DOpus lister for the first time after Windows starts – by double-click on Windows desktop, if:
- I click on an area not on the monitor where the lister will open (I have a default position set in preferences) Dopus opens normally with twin horizontal windows set to my choice directory paths.
- I click instead in the monitor/area where the lister will open the two windows revert immediately to My Computer about 50% of the time. The back buttons on each window take me back to the original choice (there is only one back stored).
This happens only for the first time a lister opens (in that Windows session). It is not related to accidental double or treble clicking. It appears to happen only if the double-click to open a new lister is on the secondary monitor (i.e. it does not happen with a double-click on the main monitor). The default lister position is set to the secondary monitor.
Finally, it appears to be related to an application called Ultramon (www.ultramon.com) v3.1.0 that I run to manage multiple monitors. Ultramon is set to autostart but if I disable it before firing up a DOpus lister the problem described above does not happen.
Has anyone else experienced this or a similar problem (and have you found an alternative solution)? This is not a show-stopper by any means: it's a minor irritation but I (and DOpus Support) would like to get to the bottom of it.
