The Vista version of The Magnifier uses a built-in Magnification system provided in Vista. Because older applications may have issues runing in Vista, there are several options you may wish to try:
- Run the program as Administrator (e.g. right-click, and select Run as Administrator) This resolved the PowerPoint 2003 issue.
- Try running the program in a compatibility mode (for the OS version the program supports). Right-click on the program, go to properties, select Compatibility tab, and Run as… Then select the appropriate OS.
- It could be a video issue - under Control Panel | Appearance and Personalization | Personalization | Adjust Screen Resolution, you can change the color depth (lower from 32-bit to 24-bit or 16-bit), then retest. Because of the video usage required by running The Magnifier, lowering this will reduce the amount of video memory required in your system. Also, always be sure to check for video driver updates
