Thread: DPI awareness of setups build by setupbuilder

  1. #1

    Default 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

    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,
    Friedrich

    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,

    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".
