SO you are starting it with /Fullscreen, and it goes fullscreen for a second, then goes out of it to restored state?

No, it isn't a restored state (no menu or surrounding window chrome). It is a clipped view. I tried like mad to activate a button in the clipped area with no luck.

Ugghh... That's basically back to where I was a few weeks ago when we first noticed the differences with the latest Win10 for full screen. You were seeing something like that. Can you hit Ctrl-Shift-F1 to get out of it? If so, does it go back to normal OK? And if that so, can you then select the menu full screen option and it works correctly, or does it do that same thing?

It's not really a beta per se, but it probably won't be an actual released version either, so I don't want to pollute the main installer area. I'll likely accumulate more fixes before doing an official release.

Client Side Driver Fix

When a driver is loaded, client or server side, the current configuration is supposed to be updated with the contents of the latest manifest file for that driver. This picks up newly added prompts and things like that. It also updates the versions for C++ driver DLLs. On the Admin Intf side, that got lost because it used to get the driver config from the actual running driver, which already had those updates. Now it gets it from the MS, which doesn't, and it wasn't doing the update. So any C++ driver that had a client side driver and any shared DLLs (between the server and client) would fail to load the client side driver tab because it was trying to load the wrong version of that shared DLL.

Thanks Dean, this fixed the ZWave Client Side Driver issue!

I added a new video today for the web cam widget, which also demonstrates the new audio handling bits that were just added:

There is no keyboard; I could temporarily put restore/full screen command buttons in the visible area if you think that would be useful.

It turns out that the rdp client that I am using does have a keyboard and you can configure special keys (So ctrl-shift-f1 is now mapped). So I ran the upgrade again, tried the same startup, and !@#$%^ the IV worked as expected.

I then restored the 5.1.1 that had the problem and it doesn't reproduce either.

I made some more changes as well for the next drop, so let's just keep an eye on it. Part of the issue is just timing, when it's coming up, to make sure that the right thing happens, but without being in control of the order of events relative. I also did the same thing as with the AI, where i don't show the window immediately, but kick off a one-shot timer that will show the window after some message pumping has had time to happen. It's still a very short delay that won't be noticed relative to the normal startup time, but it seems to help a lot. Certainly it does in the AI, where it would often come up scrambled if I didn't do this.

A word of warning wrt to the web widget. I use this url to display an animated weather map (https://weather.com/weather/radar/intera...21409:4:US) . It stopped working. It isn't the web widget because if you try it in IE the same bad display occurs. Either there was a change in IE in one of the Windows 10 updates or a change in what the WC is producing as html. The page displays correctly on Chrome and on FF.

Have you done the registry compatibility thing? Be sure it's for CQCWBHelper.exe, not CQCIntfView.exe if you need to add it.
