Small app to display PDF's not refreshing properly

Post by Tony York » Sat Mar 23, 2013 7:54 am

Hi Craig,

I have a situation where I have a need to open up a few pdf files in their own windows (I am using a small separate app) so that they can keep them open even if the main app is closed.

I am finding that if I use the command RUN(scanpv.exe "c:\myfilename.pdf") the viewer control is NOT painting properly, and whilst each minor control is visible after moving the mouse all over the screen, it is still not smooth, after almost any event, like a resize it makes it behave the same way all over again.

Any ideas what might be causing this?

Thanks

Tony

I think I may have found the issue.

I have tested it on Win8 and Win7 machines and it seems to work fine.

In order to test it on XP I have a VM and it coughs inside the VM. I do not have a machine with XP bu itself, so I cannot test that for sure, but XP users will be in the minority for me.

See ya

Hi Tony!

Which VM are you using? VMWARE or Windows own VM? If the latter then you might be seeing a Windows problem. You should have no problems with XP in a VMWARE PC.
