when i right click the desktop on windows 7 ultimate there is no 'properties' selection making these fixes impossible. I get:
view
sort by
refresh
nvdia control panel
adobe drive cs4
new
screen resolution
gadgets
personalize
I've looked in gadgets screen resolution and personalize and cannot find the tabs mentioned in this article

That looks like an article about XP and it's 2 years old.

I just tested my system out,
20" and 19" LG monitors, Premiere CS4, Win 7 64bit, GTX 285 and Premiere works fine across both screens, so I am not sure what your NLE Vendor means when they say it doesn't work.

That is odd since our machines are almost the same. I haven't had any issues with the second screen at all, and I have been running Win 7 64 since august (got the RTM because I had a Technet Subscription) along with CS4.

the only thing I think it could be are the Drivers since the card should have no issues with dual screens.
