i am using HyperCam 2.26.00 (64bit) on a Windows 7 64bit system.
because that system is used as media and web pc at the same time and i dont sit close to the TV (1920x1080p), i changed the DPI of the screen on the system to a higher value ("Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Display" "Make it easier to read what's on your screen" to 150%).
i tried to make a screencast on that system, to capture an other application window. but on that system, on that configuration, if i try to select the window by "MainWindow->ScreenArea->Select Window"-button, the screen looks like "Magnified" (zoomed in by ~2x) - so that i have only the upper left quadrant of the whole screen to choose the window i want to select.
and if i start capturing, the screen is not magnified anymore, but HC2 is capturing the complete wrong region of the screen.
my intention was to modify the compatibility mode for HC2 like i have to do for other non-64-bit programs to work proper on that system (to prevent to looks like too blurry or too magnified),
but by windows application compatibility/design rules (i can't remember the correct name - but i know there are rules, specially for Vista and Win7 - i am a software developer!) there are no such compatibility modes available for 64bit applications (microsoft says 64bit a program must follow ALL
the style/compatibility rules and must react proper to all features - but not all software developer follow that rules) - especially to get the "Win7 logo" for an application - even if you are not intended to receive the "Win... logo" you should develop your application so, as you would - its good practice to do so!
the workaround to, how i/you can make a screencast on such a system with that kind of configuration is, to uninstall HC2 64bit, than install the 32bit version of HC2 and modify the compatibility settings of HC2 to "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings" on the property tab of the shortcut. that is the only solution as long HC2 is not supporting the windows high DPI features proper.
