swordfish-si and win7

Post by Jerry Messina » Tue Apr 22, 2014 10:32 am

When I ran the sf installer on my win7 x64 machine the installer window doesn't display properly... the window is cut off and no buttons.

I tried different settings of "troubleshoot compatibility" but none of them helped. I'm sure it's probably how my machine is setup, but any suggestions on how to get it to display properly?

Change the font settings on your PC back to default should get you going...

Thanks. Turns out I had the display set to Medium - 125%, which was the default. Setting this to Smaller (100%) fixed the display issue w/the installer.

I sure got a lot of screen real estate back. Now all I have to do is tape a magnifier to my forehead...
