Disaster Strikes!!!

Recommended Posts

Glad that it is not only me . . . On the laptop, have to downgrade the resolution from 3840x2160 to 1920x1080 in order to run PT Standard. Maybe they fixed that in PT Studio?

This might help in some cases in Windows with 2.5k or 4K displays (I'll use protools.exe as an example I don't know if it works on Pro Tools, but it works for several older software that doesn't support high resolutions):

Get this into registry (to turn it off change the 1 to 0), either manually or put it in a file file called e.g. externalmanifest.reg.

 

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\SideBySide]
"PreferExternalManifest"=dword:00000001
 

 

 

A Windows restart might be needed.

Then create a file called protools.exe.manifest and put it into same folder as the executable:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>

<assembly xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1" manifestVersion="1.0" xmlns:asmv3="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v3">

    </requestedPrivileges>

I should not worry it really was not worth the effort as it had a very limited audience, but it did breach the rules.

I thought this was going to be the introduction of a very poorly executed orchestral drum library.

That's why Windows allows you to "Scale" the display!  So that you can make thing "bigger" even at High Resolution!

Not at all!  It's quite remarkable actually.  My standard OP is 1080P, and it's fine...the only reason a monitor seems better
is do to the size, where the dots are closer together.  A cada su propio es la manera!
