That's what I meant by "active video", it does not happen over the Video lost windows, part of the CCTV display as well, no?
Yes exactly, but you said "active window", that confused me :P

Probably too obscure for the Geovision people to have any discussion?
I contacted them but they have no clue... Pretty sure nobody asked them about this problem before. Most of the Geovision users won't use widgets over their videos but hey, if i'm to have a monitor open 24/7 i'd rather have clock and weather on it
I also posted on a CCTV forum but no answer so far Looks like i'm desperate now

Since a different dpi can cause similar issues, perhaps see if another size has any effect? I had a similar issue way back, when I knew little about 7

I just tried with 125% and 150% DPI. Didn't change anything


A few other things i have noticed :

- Sometimes when i boot Windows 7 and launch Geovision, windows will give me a popup warning in the systray about the full color set not being supported by some problem and windows running on basic color set. However when i check in the settings i'm still in 32bits real color mode.

- In control panel i discovered that in control panel there is a problem solving option to "search and solve transparency problem"
After running it, it says that "window manager disabled" is "detected" (not sure of the exact translation, i use windows in french)

Did the troubleshooter state that is resolved the issues? You might want to reboot and test again.

Sounds like the Desktop Window Manager service, have you checked in services to see if you can start it?

That is a good idea. The troubleshooter can almost always fix the issue though should a service be disabled.

My question is you stated this was a clean install yet this service is disabled....

Quite odd.

Have you disabled things in services or messed with the installation at all?

ok so according to this topic: Probleme Aero Windows Seven [Résolu]

The correct name for the disabled service "Gestionnaire de fenêtrage désactivé" in services.msc is "Gestionnaire de sessions du gestionnaire de fenêtrage"

And when i check in services.msc it *IS* indeed activated... I don't understand why windows is telling me that it's not.

Ok so this is the popup i'm getting sometimes:




translation:

the color set has been changed.

The following application did an action that forces Windows to temporary replace the color set by Windows 7 default

Program : Geovision

Windows will automatically replace the color set by Windows Aero when you close the application
