    Hi Markus,

    does the following test installer (not code-signed) display fine on your 4K monitor?

    We have used an internal SB build with the new #pragma DPIAware set to "false".

    Perfect! Thank you, Markus.

    We decided to add a new option to the compiler. This lets you enable or disable the DPI-aware property. We'll send you a link to the internal build by the end of this week.

    Thanks again!

    Hi Markus,

    hmmm, good question. Two years ago, on 06-JUL-2016, we added a dpiAware property to the manifest.

    Am I allowed to send you a new test "stub loader" (with "disabled" DPI awareness property) to check whether the font appears in the previous size?

    Thanks,

    DPI awareness of setups build by setupbuilder

    Hi Friedrich,

    we've recently updated our setupbuilder from 10.0.4929.0 to 10.0.6233.0. Now our quality assurance team complains that the font on a 4K monitor has become much smaller. I suspect this change in version 10 build 5368 to be the cause:

    CHANGE : IDE: Add a slightly modified manifest generation method to the compiler to improve support for "DPI-awareness". This affects the generated setup.exe...

    How can I change the font so that it appears in the previous size again?

    Thanks for your answer.

    Markus
