Alternate Magnification In Vista

When running in Windows Vista, Microsoft has a built in magnification interface that is used to magnify the screen display within The Magnifier, to be compatible with the entire operating system. In certain instances (lack of correct video driver, insufficient video display hardware, incorrect display settings, etc.), this interface will not operate as intended. The Magnifier's window background displays a few statements outlining important Vista information:

This outlines what is happening when Alt-A is used within Vista.

Notes: If you are forced to use the XP compatible version of The Magnifier in Windows Vista, you will want to select any other Appearance option other than the Windows Aero display (Personalize | Appearance | View Classic options). When operating with the Aero appearance selected, you are not able to view "through" The Magnifier window, and full screen operation is not usable. You may also want to change (or create a new shortcut icon to launch MagnifierXP.exe (rather than the default The Magnifier) Otherwise, anytime you run The Magnifier.exe, you will need to use Alt-A to start the alternate program. The license remains the same, and the alternate magnifier should be effective if your system cannot use the Vista approach, and you do not run the Aero appearance setting.
