In View 5.0, 3D-enabled Windows 7 desktops configured with multiple monitors at max resolution can have increased latency with certain Windows applications. (2006611)


On View 5.0 desktops that are configured with the Windows 7 3D Rendering feature, some users might experience increased latency when they run applications that use native Windows APIs. This problem can be exacerbated when multiple monitors and the maximum (1920x1200) display resolution are configured.


In the Windows 7 Control Panel, open Performance Information and Tools -> Adjust visual effects -> Performance Options window.
  • For the the best performance, select "Adjust for best performance."
  • For the best performance while retaining 3D-enabled desktop functionality, select only the following:

       - Enable Aero Peek
       - Enable desktop composition
       - Enable transparent glass
       - Smooth edges of screen fonts
       - Use visual styles on windows and buttons
